I happen to use services of this hostel / hotel during my frequent visits to Chicago during March/april 2012. This is an complete budget option if you just need to spend few hours or a night in the city.
Locationwise this place is definitely an advantage as it is walking distance from the Chicago union station, Greyhound station and the subways. Service wise as you can expect, being a hostel you should not expect much. However, i found their bathrooms to be clean and well maintained. Rooms were with multiple layered beds for its patrons to just spend the night. I was not too happy with the smell that circulated in the rooms due to lack of ventilation.
They also had breakfast available but was too substandard. Their reception is not the best one in town again you need to keep in mind the price you are paying. You can certainly find much better options provided you are willing to pay for it. thus, my recommendations is not to expect too much, use it is as a cost saving option and that too if you want to kill a few hours before your onward journey.
Overall decent place if you dont expect too much! Definitely not a place to come with your family and recommended only for single stay.
