My time at Chicago Getaway was great.. Everything from the area to my dormed bunk bed was perfect. I met some great people whilst staying at this very well run establishment. I have the staff to thank for that :) Both Audrey and Melanie held some great nights out bringing us to their favorite live venues in the area. Both these girls are a great addition to the hostel. Do yourself a favor

Great location. Five minutes walk to restaurants. The sofa in lounge area next the main entrance is cozy, love it. But there is no power station next to the upper bunker. There is tons of dust on air conditioner and next to the window. Restroom is not so clean. Besides that, great place to stay and good value for money for sure.
