Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent visit to HI Chicago. It was disheartening to read about the challenges you encountered during your stay. We take these concerns seriously and place great emphasis on maintaining a clean and healthy safe environment for all of our guests. Your concerns have been relayed to our leadership team and together we will make sure steps are taken so this doesn't happen again. Please feel free to call the Hostel and speak with our Front Desk Manager Rey Matos, as you are anonymous and we cant contact you.
