Amazing hostel! Great location, great rooms, great people! We'll be back


Great location. I felt safe. Daily breakfast is good, but is just a pastry away from perfection. All in all, good work.

Very safe neighborhood, it's a bit of a walk to the next L Station, but it's a nice walk. The hostel is very beautiful and I felt safe. Nice people, helpful staff. I would definitely recommend this hostel!


The shared bathroom could be cleaner and more convenient.

Our experience at Chicago Getaway Hostel was overall positive. The staff was excellent, very helpful with directions and luggage storage. The room was comfortable if a bit small. A few extra outlets would have been a good idea. The location was good in a quiet pretty neighbourhood, close to good restaurants etc. The bathrooms and could have been cleaner and the hairdryer provided there did not work. I was not thrilled with the breakfast options, but it was ok.


It Was my first time and I feel welcome, the Stuff Was very friendly, I recommend this place if you looking for a friendly and affordable place to stay and the location is great close to bars and restaurants in a great neighborhood

Best hostel


Chicago Getaway Hostel is incredibly clean, and very well located. You can get in and out with no hassle any time of the night. The wi-fi is strong. They provide linens and towels. I had a wonderful stay.
