Budget Place with Maintenance Issues

The apartment is a great value for a studio if you are on a budget, but there are constant building maintenance issues. The washing machines are often broken, the elevator is down (which is okay since it is only 5 flights of stairs). For in-apartment work, they are quick to respond and fix, but the general building amenities are a mess. The apartment is small, but the kitchen is new appliances and location is close to the bus pickup. Worth it for a cheap studio but you get what you pay for.

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 However, appliances are still outdated and the units are small.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

The convenience of getting to campus cannot be beat. I feel relatively safe as a young woman here. I have never been robbed thus far. Thankfully there are lots of police officers. I get my groceries at hyde park produce and whole foods, which are both pretty convenient. The 172 is great. I just wish it ran later at night for late classes.
Great neighborhood. 53rd street is very safe. Security at every corner and University buses run up and down it all day. Also very close to many food/grocery options.

You may a premium for the amenities/convenience, but excellent location if you’re okay with bus commute or biking
It's not the first place I would have liked to live, but it's closest to the university. The biggest drawbacks are that there are no traditional grocery stores or affordable food options. It is nice to be close to the lake and promontory point.
Hyde Park is great to be in for 1L since you'll need to be at the law school *all the time.* It's charming, but really there's not a whole lot going on here. The lack of good restaurants is really brutal.
Close to campus, lots of restaurants. Not super close to grocery stores anymore, but not too bad. Lots of beautiful trees and old brownstones, not too crowded, housing tends to be very affordable.
Plenty of restaurants and shops. I've rarely felt unsafe, but of course, I've heard about other people's negative experiences with safety in the area.
I live five minutes from Whole Foods, Target, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, the 2 bus, the 172 bus, etc. Everything is within walking distance.
Kinda isolated from Chicago's social scene and cooler neighborhoods, but very convenient at least. Easy to focus in first year.
