Chicago Getaway Hostel was rated the 4th Best Extra Large Hostel in the World at the 2011 Hoscars and it's not difficult to see why. This bright, airy, spacious and modern hostel had a large kitchen, dorms split by gender and 'plenty of storage space', as one Hostelworld guest told us. It's located a short walk from the lake and just 10 minutes from Fullerton subway station connecting directly to the downtown area. We like their friendly staff, who are knowledgeable about Chicago and organise daily activities.
Chicago Getaway Hostel has the friendly atmosphere of a hostel with the style, comfort and service of a boutique hotel.

We are located in a youthful neighborhood near hundreds of bars and restaurants, just a short walk from Chicago's lakefront beaches and within quick and easy reach of the city's most popular attractions.
