Small rooms unpopular with some.

Some guests staying at Freehand Chicago find themselves disappointed with the size of rooms. These guests report that rooms are on the small side, offering little room to move around and even less room to store luggage.


Some noise complaints.

While many guests enjoy a quiet stay at the hostel, others report noise disturbances. Reports suggest that the communal area, which includes a bar, can be very noisy, while thin walls make it possible to hear the movements of neighbouring guests.


Room with a view sometimes lacks a view.

A number of guests have expressed disappointment at their city view rooms. According to some of these guests, instead of taking in the Chicago skyline, the city view in question is merely the building next door, a view that lacks any kind of wow factor.
