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

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.
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.
Convenient proximity to the subway and downtown. Friendly staff and comfy dorm rooms with in-suite bathrooms. Nice lounge and spacious kitchen. Highly recommended
Hostel staff were very helpful and friendly. Gave great advise about local area. A very clean hostel.
Great location! Super clean bathrooms! Perfect breakfast and really friendly staff! I would definitely stay here again!
As good as the hostel experience can get! An awesome place with interesting people and absolutely perfect facilities at a very affordable price! What more could you ask for?
Good price and good location, facilities were good too, but the bathroom was a little bit dirty and not much privacy in there.
Practical and well located. Cool staff.
Stayed 3 nights in a twin private. Good location near lots of bars and food. Just a few blocks form the Train. Clean bathrooms and nice kitchen with plenty of room for your stuff. Staff very helpful. The only CONS are - The room was short on outlets and had very thin walls and you could hear everyones doors slamming all night. Would highly receommend. This will be where I stay whenever I visit Chicago.
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at, very clean, great atmosphere and the staff (specifically Melanie) was simply amazing.
No colour whatsoever needs some real hostel charm and atmosphere. Besides the sterility very good
It's what it is. Great location, great staff and fun atmosphere! This hostel has a good mixture of young and older guest population. I would recommend it to anyone considering a visit to Chicago!
The only thing that bothered me was the signs around the hostel telling people not to use hostel websites like hostleworld.com because of the "reservation fee" and therefore this hostel charged us a "tax" when we arrived to up the price. This website allowed me to find this Chicago hostel so it shouldn't discourage people to use websites like these.
Amazing, amazing, amazing!! Highly recommend! Gorgeous staff in a gorgeous part of Chicago! Keep up the fabulous work guys!!
Join the Jazz Blue experience trip.....it is really enjoyable....
Really cool hostel, friendly staff, good breakfasts and free dinner available! Stayed in the basement and had no cellular reception (only down side) but good wifi connection. Would stay again.
