The Chicago Getaway Hostel is truly a lovely place. My best friend and I stayed for 3 nights in June while visiting a friend in Chicago. The neighborhood is beautiful, and the hostel is less than 10 minutes from the train. In the summer you can walk to the beach as well.
The hostel itself is incredibly clean and attractive. The age range of the guests was a very nice mix. They offer an excellent breakfast with outdoor space for the warm months. The (very friendly) staff hosts activities daily for anyone unfamiliar with Chicago or the neighborhood. Free Wifi, clean showers, comfortable beds; we had no complaints. This is definitely a step above other hostels and budget hotels I've visited. If you are staying in Chicago on a budget or just want to stay in a place guaranteed to be clean and welcoming, I absolutely recommend the Getaway.
- 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
