    Great hostel, fantastic location! Only downside might be the small rooms, there is not a lot of space to put your luggage, and the tiny shower. But other than that it was awesome!

    Freehand Hostel is a very nice and clean Hostel in the heart of Chicago. The location is perfect to explore the city center and its main attractions. I really recommend it :)

    Overall, the only disappointing thing would be the check-in procedure. The kiosks caused some stress with check-in, as everybody was assumed to know that they knew how they worked. They had two staff members there to help though; and they did! The car at night was very cool. Many people were attracted to this space and it was like a club at night. The drinks are drastically overpriced and smaller than usual. But if you’re on vacation it may be worth one drink or even more depending on budgets.

    Very nice place to stay, nice staff and very good location. During breakfast the kitchen is very crowded and you maybe have to wait for new dishes and one or two more fridges would be cool. But the staff cleans everything up for you, a couple of times during the day. I can definitely recommend it and I will come again.

    Das Zimmer war sauber und geräumig. Ich mochte die Vorhänge an den Betten, damit konnte man sich etwas mehr Privatsphäre verschaffen. Die Lage ist super, die meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten sind in Laufweite und es gibt viele Restaurants. Einzig das Frühstück ist nicht wirklich gut, aber es gibt ja viele Ausweichmöglichkeiten.

    It‘s a very big and clean hostel. But as a backpacker who wants to meet other travelers it was not the right place. Maybe because it during the winter, but I didn’t meet anyone to hang out with during my stay at the Freehand hostel.
