    Default LOLLA HOSTEL WTF ARE WE DOING THREAD

    Hey, i just had a thought, i booked my hostel room which is going to cost $40 a night. Leo tells me that between CAA and PAW there is 15-20 people staying at the same hostel. Lets say we get only 15 people to go, 15 X 189 = 2835. We could get a fucking suite in a 4 star hotel for that much money, or how many double bed rooms with a cot? Let me know what you guys think of all canceling our hostels and getting a little more luxury. We dont have to slum for this festival. We dont have to share our shower with 40 other people.

    If you could find something near the festival grounds, like under 5 blocks, I'd be intrigued. The quick search I just did didn't come up with much. The Hostel isn't the ritz but it isn't slumming it either. The location makes it extremely desirable too.

    you not gunna find a hotel within walking distance that will hold all of us for even close to 40$ a day. I only see 7-8 of us so far but I am sure I am not seeing some. Downtown Chicago is not cheap for hotels and they jack them up prob 300% this weekend.

    you guys need to figure it out and do what this guy is thinking...even if you have to walk a bit, staying in a hotel where they change your sheets (and you can protect your shit) is a MUCH better call.

    Hotel is gunna be min of 300$ and thats if they have any open rooms and if its a few miles away. That would also have to be packed with people sleeping all over the floor and not everyone having a key. I understand the reasoning with getting a hotel but I really dont think it would work as well or as cheap.

    Hey, they have lockers at the hostel rooms. Good point though. The rooms do have key card entry so it would be desirable to get as many of us in one room as possible. Once we know the numbers I assume that can be done with a phone call.

    Real talk, I'm a broke-ish college student. Luxury isn't as important as functionality at this point.

    ah, memories of last years lolla are returning...our hostel was ok, but not great. i need more amenities than that...so i'd never do a hostel again.

    but if the hostels close by fill up fast, i'd suggest checking out arlington house hostel. that's where i stayed last year. very clean bathrooms, which was what i dreaded most. its a short el ride away from grant park and has some pretty decent food right around it.
