I thought the location was excellent. It was in a very fun area of Chicago.

Hi! I'm glad you got to experience Lincoln Park! It's one of the nicest neighborhoods in Chicago - and just a stones throw to downtown. We hope that we'll see you around our hostel again in the future! Best regards, Mat Meadows General Manager

Hi, Thanks for reviewing Chicago Getaway Hostel! We're glad to see you enjoyed our hostel, thanks for recommending us! Best regards, Mat Meadows General Manager


Great location with easy instructions to be able to find. A good hostel vibe about it. Good location to pubs and Lake Michigan beach areas. Stay in this area rather then anything in the CBD. Staff were good there and always willing to help out with any questions. Facilities were fine and clean. Good area to cook dinner if you want to save some coin, otherwise there is plenty of options cheap or restaurants nearby.

Nice hostel in a really nice part of the city. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Downside is the room was cold at night and noisy from fans/units outside. I would stop again but try to get a different room.


everything is great, nice staff, fantastic kitchen, but is far from the center, residencial area


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.
