You get what you pay for

It's difficult to find a one-bedroom for under $1000/month (including utilities) so in that sense, it's a great value. It's also near the 53rd Street restaurants and shops, which is definitely a plus. The 171 bus picks up just a block away. They also recently re-did the kitchens, and the unit was very clean when I moved in. However, appliances are still outdated and the units are small. Air conditioning is not included, but you can rent a wall unit from the building. Heating is radiator heating - very little temperature control. The building often smells of cigarette smoke and there are tons of pets living in the building, including birds. So you have to be able to put up with a few things, but overall it's met my expectations.

The Victorian/TLC

Much smaller than the floor plans they have online, but otherwise a really great apartment - cozy, nice interior, good heating, etc.

Hyde Park Reviews

37 reviews
There's a lot going on off of 53rd. Good restaurants (A10, Promentory, Yusho) and even some worthwhile fast food (Native Foods, Chipotle). There are two grocery stores (Hyde Park Produce is phenomenal), and almost everything else (a hardware store, an office supply store in the Treasure Island shopping center, some doctors' offices off of 55th). Down on 57th there are some other good restaurants (Medici) and 57th Street Books is a cornerstone. Hyde Park even just got an improv comedy place (The Revival) on 57th.

In short, there's enough going on in Hyde Park not to feel isolated, but it's far enough away from the city not to feel suffocated.
Hyde Park does not have the social or culinary sophistication of other Chicago neighborhoods, it's true. And it could definitely use a few more grocery stores. But for a law student like me who prizes convenience above all else, I'm just glad to have a short commute to and from school.
There's a bus stop literally outside the building that is free for UChicago ID-holders. This takes you to the front door of the law school and also to a shopping complex with a Walgreens and grocery store. In Hyde Park in general things are pretty walkable and there are some fun restaurants. I don't feel 100% safe walking after maybe 9pm but if you stay in populated areas it's probably fine.
Hyde Park is a great place to live for a student or a young family, in that it's relatively quiet, but is growing quickly in terms of entertainment and dining options. It's also very beautiful, being an older neighborhood with a lot of brownstones and castle-like structures, and big trees with lots of beautiful foliage in the fall. I don't like the fact that there's not an L stop central to the neighborhood, but the Metra makes up some of the difference if you live nearby, and the buses to downtown are relatively convenient. Also, people's concerns about "safety" are ridiculous – I think certain people tend to become afraid when they see more brown people than they are used to, but the neighborhood is actually one of the wealthiest and safest neighborhoods in the city, in addition to having the advantage of being culturally and demographically diverse. There's also a lot of really nice park space (you're between Jackson Park and Washington Park, have the Midway Plaisance right in the middle of the university, and other smaller parks like Nichols Park and Harold Washington Park provide a lot of nice greenery).
When you think of South Side Chicago, you don't think of Hyde Park. It's really nice, however it can quickly turn into a dangerous place if you venture too far away from the neighborhood. I've overall enjoyed the neighborhood very much. It has a lot of culture to learn from. If it's good enough for President Obama it's good enough for me.
I love Hyde Park. It's extremely walkable and it is reasonably close to public transportation that's pretty quick into downtown. If you want to do more serious shopping or dining out it usually involves a trip outside of the neighborhood, but most things I need for everyday life are very close.
Commute to campus is easy and quick, but I never walk around at night alone and do not visit Hyde Park businesses very often. I buy my groceries in South Loop because the grocery stores in HP are too expensive, and I go for dinner/drinks uptown because there are so few options down here.
There's a lot going on off of 53rd. Good restaurants (A10, Promentory, Yusho) and even some worthwhile fast food (Native Foods, Chipotle).
