Algonquin Review

Good apartment overall. Recently redone units, close to transportation downtown and to UChicago. Overall great experience so far. Problems with gym access, and occasionally my packages never arrive, which I've never had a problem with before. Good bang for your buck, but don't expect anything luxurious - this is a solid alternative to living in Regents, but it's just fine. If you're looking for something with more amenities, choose Regents, and if you're looking for an altogether more luxurious complex, choose Shoreland.

Kenwood Reviews

I prefer the short commute to school to living somewhere I'd have to wake up earlier. But HP is a little quiet, so depends on what you're looking for. More restaurants and shopping options are being added really quickly right now so that's a pro (Whole Foods coming soon!) but it's definitely different than living in a neighborhood in/closer to the Loop.
Hyde Park is on the rise if you like gentrified, bougie neighborhoods. There are more fancy restaurants coming to the neighborhood as UChicago bought out 53rd street. It's a good neighborhood for a college experience but I am speaking as a formal student. It's unclear how non-university affiliated folks feel about the changes as there is sadly not much interaction between the University and the rest of the community.
Hyde Park is extremely boring. I live here because the school is here and the commute is easy. There are very few good restaurants and no nightlife whatsoever. Luckily, getting downtown is cheap and easy. I've never felt unsafe during the daytime, but I certainly don't go walking around at night.
The neighborhood feels safe overall, as I live right on the border with Hyde Park. There is a dearth of businesses (stores, restaurants, bars) in the area, but that is true for all of Hyde Park. Proximity to the Law School is the best part of where I live.
My building is a 5 min walk to Whole Foods and 12 min walk to Target. Hyde Park is getting more restaurants and bars, but I wish there were better options. It is nice to be close to my friends and close to campus though.
I have never had any problems with the neighborhood. Plenty of transit options, also gives with DIVVYbike stations. Lots of good food nearby and overall a quiet place. Many students and University professionals!
For groceries, options are Wholefoods, Target and Hyde Park produce; no supermarkets.
Closest pharmacy is a 10min walk away.
Not much going on at all. Closest place for restaurants/bars is 53rd Street, which is about a 10-15 min walk.
