Positive Reviews


Great location in quiet neighborhood.

You will enjoy the quietness of the neighborhood this clean and beautiful hostel is situated in. Another perk, despite the quiet environment, is the fact that Chicago Getaway is just minutes away from all the action of the city. A CTA line is within walking distance of the hostel and the Lincoln Park Zoo is just a few blocks away.


Good vibes, good staff.

Guests have complimented staff members on their outgoing and helpful attitudes. The hostel has a laid-back feel and employees organize social events such as barbecues, pub crawls and several other planned activities, which visitors say they have enjoyed participating in. A few guests have also said the service at Chicago Getaway is similar to what one would expect at a higher end hotel.


Fantastic amenities.

Visitors love all the amenities this hostel has to offer, including perks such as free luggage storage, lockers, reading room, computer corner, meeting room, outdoor patio, large kitchen, nice lobby area and free Wi-Fi.

Negative Reviews


Just OK beds.

Some visitors have mentioned the beds could be better as they could feel the springs through the mattresses while trying to sleep; beds are also a little shaky.


Beware the basement.

A few people have complained about a room located on the basement floor. This room has poor air circulation and no windows and it has been suggested to avoid booking in this room if you can.


A little maintenance could be in order.

There have been limited negative comments about upkeep in rooms and other areas, mostly geared toward the bathrooms and showers.
