Liked: staff are personal to a point that maintain their professionalism

Disliked: 1. the common room is kind of cold in atmosphere, and the tv reception is affected by the windy city, I suggest they put in a dvd player2. the breakfast staff manager was likely from a military background, he sounds like he monitor the guest and his staff like his subordinate

Liked: The staff was superb! Friendly and helpful staff who went above and beyond for our evey need ! The Parthenon had a great value for parking in the Chicago area and the valet gentlemen were superb! Wonderful lounge areas and very clean and well kept rooms and bathrooms! The free breakfast was a great perk too! The hostels location in the heart of Greek Town was perfect - delicious restaurant next door and less than a block's walk to the Blue line train. Only two stops away from the Medical District! I was thoroughly impressed by the Parthenon - everything was perfect! I only wish there were more hostels like this across the states! Thank you!

Liked: They offer cheap private rooms and they can be booked last minute bcz of the vacancies.It's in Greektown so there's a bunch of nice restaurants close by.it's fairly close to the line that takes you to the airport.

Disliked: No hair driers in the showers.Very narrow bathrooms some of which don't lock.No elevators.This was only tolerable because we were probably the only people in our floor.

Liked: The room was very spacious and the arrangement of the beds and lockers was organised. The lockers were very clean and there were many private lockers in the room. It's less than 200m to the subway station and really convenient for travelling around in Chicago.

Disliked: The room was a little cold and not really heated up. The toilet is clean however, the cubicle doors were too close to the toilet bowls and had no locks, or had locks but couldn't be properly secured. The doors couldn't shut as a result most of the times. The bathing cubicles only had shower curtains and no doors. Furthermore, there was only one main hook outside the shower curtain for all the clothes, towel and stuff. It was abit troublesome and inconvenient hanging all the clothes up on one hook.
