우선 직원분들이 친절했고, 침실도 깔끔했어요. 화장실도 방마다 있어서 사용하기도 편했고, wifi도 잘터져요. 대박인건 아침식사가 와플, 과일, 시리얼, 베이글, 식빵등 먹을게 많아서 참 좋아요.

위대한 검토 주셔서 감사합니다! 당신이 시카고 탈출에서 숙박을 즐길 다행!


The hostel is nice, clean, in a quiet neighbourhood, a few distance from the subway. You will have to use it because the hostel is not central. People at the front desk are very helpfull. They offer good deals for activities in town. Breakfast is great. The hostel is big, so not very cosy. There are only two bathroom by floor (one for men, one for women), so the girls bathroom can be pretty far from your room (but very clean and not crowded). Good place !

Thanks for the wonderful review of Chicago Getaway Hostel! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Best regards, Mat Meadows General Manager


As Always Chicago Getaway Hostel is the #1 choice for stays in Chicago. Clean facilitates, great lobby area for meeting travelers. Nightly activities to local areas. Our Pub Crawl host Erica took on us on a really good night out trip to many Bars. Mat & Vinne as always looked after me during the my stay. Trip to The Burwood Tap & Kingstown Mines is not to be missed. 15 mins walk to Fullerton Red line, Clark and Halstead for shopping / eating and Chicago History Museum & the Lincoln Park Zoo.
