The peeps at Hostelling International offered me a place to stay in Chicago, so I took the opportunity to do some hostel photography and explore the city of Chicago over a long weekend.
The hostel is located downtown, right on ‘the loop’, which made it incredibly easy to catch a train to anywhere in the city. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the bed was super comfortable – I don’t think I’ve ever slept so well in a hostel as I did here. The lounge and breakfast area were warm and welcoming, with plenty of sunlight pouring in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. My creative side also got a tad excited when I noticed the fun neon sign in the lounge area.
Our weekend also included an architecture boat tour, the Cloud Gate sculpture in Millennium Park, a walk along Navy Pier, and a photo stop at the iconic Chicago Theatre. We also head up to The Signature Room in John Hancock Tower for some city views.
