Meet Our Staff
Wrigley Hostel’s staff has worked hard to establish the hostel’s community feel. Our staff is a supportive family that extends their love and compassion to our guests. We aim to promote and encourage a positive atmosphere through out the hostel. We know that our guests love Wrigley Hostel as much as our staff!
Brendan is the co-owner of the hostel and given that Wrigley Hostel has been open for almost 4 years, he has plenty of classic hostel stories to tell. Orignially from Australia, he came to the USA to travel and then before long he fell in love with Chicago…He has been here ever since. “It has been incredibly exciting to meet so many people from all over the world. Since opening the hostel I have met people from over 140 countries. I have found that everyone has an interesting story, so please say Hi when you are at Wrigley Hostel! :)” -Brendan

She will be going to South East Asia and New Zealand this summer! “I love the hostel more than anything. It brings so much happiness to my life which is why you will find me here all the time! The guests who come in with a smile make me so happy so I make every effort to get to know them. I love being able to hear stories and make connections to everyone who comes into the hostel.”
