Nice place, clean and organized but compared to other hostels very BORING. Excellent if you just come to sleep

Hi William: Thanks for reviewing Chicago Getaway! I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have the opportunity to join any of our events that we host 7 days per week. They are very well attended and meant to let our guests experience Chicago like a local. Hope that you'll come join in the future! Our goal is for you to have as much fun as possible. Hope to see you back at Chicago Getaway in the future! Best regards, Mat Meadows General Manager


Good value of money. Although it is a little bit far from the main tourist sites in Chicago, the neighbourhood environment is pretty good!

The Getaway Hostel was a great place to stay on my first trip to Chicago. The linens and towels were clean, the lockers were secure, the bathroom facilities were tidy and equipped with hair-dryers. I wanted to write a review because I really felt the whole environment was great- the staff were lovely and really cared about the quality of my stay and had great tips and info for what to do and where to go. Also, on top of cheap accommodation I loved the free breakfast everyday! Helped me save $$
