I stayed at the Getaway Hostel because I needed a bed for one night only- I was in Chicago only for the weekend, so I wasn't going to spend much time in the hostel. This was my first experience with a hostel and I was thinking frat party, so I was very pleasantly surprised to see the diversity of the guests. It really felt like home. My bunkmates were considerate, the facilities were awesome, If I stayed there longer I would have been just as pleased. The breakfast is a continental so bring your own protein (you are allowed to cook there). They have on-site laundry facilities- nice. The wi-fi was a little spotty in the room just because there are probably too many guests competing for the bandwidth. They do have express station computers to use or simply take your computer to the tv room so you are close to the router. The room and bed were comfortable, the bathroom was clean, and the shower was large. I would recommend this hostel to anyone.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Affordable Style in Chicago's Chic Lincoln Park Located in Chicago's affluent Lincoln Park, the Chicago Getaway Hostel is rewriting the house rules on hostel style. Policies once etched in stone are being cast aside in favor of fresher, friendlier approach. Membership fees are out and hotel-like amenities are in at this stately 1928 Georgian Revival landmark that, ironically, returns to its early 20th century roots as a boardinghouse for women. Today, all guests are welcome to enjoy free breakfast, free WiFi, free linens, free housekeeping, a 24/7 chef-caliber kitchen and a BYOB policy. Add nightly events like pub crawls, brewery tours and barbecues and it's easy to see why Chicago Getaway is fast becoming the city's favorite spot for affordable short-term and extended-stay accommodations. ... more less
