Nice bunch of house mates! Very chilled out. Good place if you just need a couch to crash on.
great place, great people, great music!! i had an awesome stay in chicago. the hosts are a fun, helpful and friendly team! i can definitely recommend the hostel to everyone! ;)
This place and these people can't be beat.
My fiancee and I booked couch space at Hostel Earphoria for one Saturday night. We arrived at about noon and were welcomed inside. Chris, the house manager, was on the phone when we got there, but he quickly came in after us and got the couches ready himself. The building is filled with character--the walls are covered with posters for concerts and shows, and the basement is wall-to-wall painted with murals.
We hung out in the space for a while in between a wedding ceremony and its reception. I offered to do a chore to help out, and Chris asked me to help him take the trash and recycling out to the back, where he showed me their gardens. He even made us kale-banana smoothies with fresh kale leaves!
We ended up not staying overnight, unfortunately--the wedding reception went very late and the venue was outside the city, so we slept at a friend's room nearer to the venue--but we did nap in the early afternoon. The couches were some of the most comfortable I've slept on, so I definitely recommend them. There is also street parking all up and down the block. Just remember that if you plan on staying here during a weekend, there are live shows every Saturday night in the basement where the couches are located, so come prepared to enjoy some live music!
Great hosts, who were flexible with our last-minute reservation. We weren't there very long, but my partner got to play some music with one of the residents--lots of instruments available, and the sofa bed was definitely more comfortable than sleeping in the car!
Very good about the fact that I didn't show up, my train was 6 hours late and I stayed with people I met on the train! Good on ya!
I had a good experience and met some interesting folks. Great place to stay and have a community meal.
I would not expect to meet anyone who is going to be social outside of the hostel. More of just a place to lay your head. A mixture of long time residents of the hostel and travelers makes for an eclectic mix of people.
They have a few cats that tend to snuggle up to you or under your bed!
My band and I, ATLAS AHEAD, stayed at Earphoria for two nights and it was an amazing experience. If you like a DIY feeling, a laid-back environment, and handmade music, then this is your place. There are always people around to chat or jam with. Everyone is helpful and open minded. Highly recommended. Thank you for everything!
According to my rep Daniel, the stay at Earphoria was great! The place is as it is advertised & Jules (et al) were very accommodating. Definitely keeping it as an option for future trips to Chi.
We had a great stay at Hostel Earphoria. The house is perfectly located and all roommates were kind and well-mannered. It was great to have music played almost all day long and jamming a bit with them. I would definitely recommend staying at Earphoria if you're a musician or music lover.
