Very pleasant stay, clean rooms, yummy breakfast bar. Contemporary style with historical feel you've got to experience for yourself. Hidden in a quiet residential neighborhood, within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, and pubs. Very trendy, very affordable.

Chicago Getaway Hostel is located in Lincoln park, a quiet neighborhood and only 10 minutes walking distance to nearby Red/Brown line subway, easy commute to O'Hare Airport. 10 minutes walking distance to many cute and affordable restaurants on Clark St. Nice location and room price is good. Free printing. However, the hostel shower is not clean. Room is cold and owner did not supply the heating until late in the evening (with only 3 hour supply of heating: 10pm-11pm, 1-2am and 3-4am). Breakfast has minimal options. Towels are not replaced automatically (ask front desk everyday). Internet is extremely slow. I will not recommend stay here.

Don't let the word hostel scare you - this is the best kept secret in the city! Trendy interior and very clean! There are great amenities indoor and they have an awesome patio. We stayed in a single room with two bunks and a half bath. It was perfect for two coeds, but the better deal is a shared room if you're up for it.

My dad and step-mom have stayed there, several times. Enjoy it. Note: must not have a zip code starting with 60***. I live very nearby and the visitors seem to be friendly and reserved enough.

Here's the thing about this Getaway Hostel. I think its secretly owned by nun's or the catholic church or something. Personally, I'm a bible burner lately, especially when these bible totters meddle, and they like meddle, peeping in keyholes and everything. Anyway, whenever I start talking with a guy, all of sudden these wretched girls crawl out of the wood work. The staff starts making distractions. So, they're thinking I'm going to their Halloween/New Years party, so they can watch me chat and try to hook up with a few interesting guys, just so, all of a sudden, a little gaggle of girls show up to steal the show, and distract just enough to NOT make it happen. And for what, so they can pop out a bible, and invite them to tea with the old ladies and men of Lincoln Park. If you're travelling all the way from China, or Europe, and that's what you want, a nosy staff, and the neighborhood church and Loyola, holy rollers looking over you back, this is the place for you!

Had a friend come to visit last year and he stayed at this hostel. I was with him each day and this place was awesome. There are always people from around the world here and the place is set in a beautiful quiet neighborhood, close to public transportation and other city attractions. There is even a red city bus that picks people in this area up for free so be on the look out. They have rooms for rent and a common area kitchen and bath.
