Overall it was a pleasant experience. The beds were comfortable, but very squeaky. Everyone was very polite and respectful, cleaned up after themselves and such. Staff was extremely nice, yet I had to wait 15 minutes for someone to come to the desk when I needed to check out. Cool environment, kinda worried about the neighborhood, but it all turned out well. Would recommend if looking for a cheap place to stay!

Although hostelling is not our favorite way to travel (I do prefer my own bathroom), it is certainly one of the cheaper ways to travel. We decided to try out the Chicago Getaway Hostel, as it was one train stop south of my son's apartment (just off the Red line Fullerton stop) or a short bus ride on the Clark Street bus (stop is closer to the hostel). We didn't expect much and the long trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night weren't fun, but we were pleasantly surprised by the friendly and helpful staff at the hostel. The complimentary breakfast was great and offered waffles on one day and scrambled eggs the second day. They always had hot oatmeal, cereal, toast, bagels, fruit, coffee & tea with all the items needed to make a nice breakfast to start the day. There were activities every night (we didn't take advantage of these) and pool, foosball, computers, etc. If we were younger and didn't have our time away planned with our son, this would have been a fun place to stay, too. The beds weren't bad, but not as comfy as a hotel room. The room had the barest of necessities (bed, linens, pillows, desk, chair & lamp. I was glad that I brought my own alarm clock. The bathrooms were always clean, even though the building is old, and the showers were nice. At an average about $70 per night (for two people), this was a bargain in Chicago. I would stay here again!

I LOVED my stay. It was walking distance to my conference at DePaul, a very picturesque walk at that. I was very comfortable, appreciated that breakfast was available, and was very comfortable with my accommodations. I loved that each dorm room had its own bathroom, and appreciated the laundry facilities. I would gladly stay there again.

First time staying at a hostel. Great location, parking available in the back for a fee. Great kitchen area for cooking and preparing your own food along w/ storage areas for everyone to label and keep their food. I thought it was pretty expensive for two people staying for one night on a Thursday. We paid $85ish. We got a bunkbed for a couple. Not very comfortable bed. We could hear people talking on the stoop most of the night and the elevator dinging. The walls weren't very solid and we could hear all the conversations while walking past people's doors. If we were in a large group staying for multiple nights, this may have been more economical.

My daughter goes to Depaul and I needed an inexpensive hotel room. I stayed in a 2 bunk-bed room. Rooms are clean, wide range of ages staying at the hostel, families to seniors, but mostly 20 somethings. Place is quiet, lobby is large and has some desks if you need to work on laptop. You'll need toiletries (inc. soap and shampoo), towel is provided. You'll also need a padlock as there are lockers (1x1.5x3)in the room for storing valuables. All in all, just fine.

Great value in a great location. Rooms are quiet and clean, front desk staff is friendly and helpful, breakfast is decent, WiFi was strong (this is so important!). I was not sure how to obtain clean sheets/towels - the staff could provide better instructions on this - but otherwise, everything was great and very similar to a regular hotel experience if you get a private room (which is still cheaper than area hotels). I've stayed here several times and would do so again.

I went to Getaway Hostel with my brother to visit Chicago for 4 days. We were expecting something totally different and more like a lot of people, not so clean,....; however, it was extremely clean (we had the two bedroom one toilet in the room), it was kind of quiet (not excessively noise), staff was really friendly and they helped us get directions as well as they provided towels and blankets (as many as we wanted). We did not have to clean and put the sheets away the last day like many other places,...I would totally recommend this hostel. And people there were awesome! Some were playing the piano in the cafeteria!! A really comfortable place to stay!!!

I booked a private room, 2 nights. On the 2nd night I was woken by 2 strangers--2 men--entering my room: they'd been given keys by the front desk. Frightened and half-naked, I had to fight and push them to get them out, but they continued trying to get into the room w. their keys. After this assault and serious security breach, I immediately called both the front desk & Expedia; I couldn't sleep the rest of the night and left in the early morning. A very disturbing experience: cannot recommend to those who value their safety.

Response by Chicago Getaway Hostel
Greetings: Firstly, let me apologize for this experience. It was an error on the part of the front desk and we cannot apologize enough. When moving your room - we inadvertently didn't move you into the new room in our system; thus resulting in a new guest being checked into your room. The new guests felt very bad for this as well. We accept full responsibility and apologize for this experience. Our goal is for each guest to leave fully satisfied - and certainly in this situation this was no able to occur. We hope that you will give us a second chance in the future. Best regards, Mat Meadows General Manager

You Have to understand the difference, no TVs or phones in the room, even if you get one with a private bathroom like we did. Only thing I have to complain about it is the first day I did not get my room clean I was never told I needed to ask daily for it. Location is super and everyone is very helpful.

We stayed at Chicago Getaway Hostel during our son's orientation for DePaul University. It was a short walk from the University and easy to locate. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and cheery. We had a great time talking with other visitors from the U.S. and abroad. If you are used to luxury accommodations, this might not be the place for you, but we found it very pleasant with down-to-earth and friendly co-habitants.

While there's nothing fancy about his hostel it has all the basics you need and even a free (continental) breakfast and free wifi. If you're looking to hang out in your room this is not the right place to stay but why would you stay in your room when visiting a beautiful city like Chicago! The community bathroom's were clean and the showers each have a private changing stall attached. Nice patio on the first floor to relax or eat breakfast. The beds are very basic and probably weren't very comfortable but we were too tired every night to notice.

The hostel met my needs completely. The only thing I think they need to improve is more clearly marking where the restrooms are (had to ask). Other than that I enjoyed my stay.

I booked two nights at this hotel , when i got there they told me that im staying in this toom for one night and i have to switch the other night because it was booked for other costumers. We had to leave the hotel from 11 am till 3 pm because the other room wasnt ready yet. The only thing they did thay gave me a free one day parking worth $28

This was the first time I was traveling by myself and the first time I tried an hostel. Chicago Getaway Hostel made my vacation unforgettable! The place is really clean and confortable. The stuff is really helpful, they organize something every night, so you can meet other people and have lot of fun!

I really enjoyed my stay! The staff was friendly. The place was very nice. It was kind of hard to get to the parking but having a parking lot is defiantly a plus. The only negative thing I really have is that breakfast was only served till 9. But I am also not a morning persons I that probably doesn't bother a lot of people.

This was my first time at a hostel and I brought my 15 old daughter as we were seeing Billy Joel at Wrigley. After hearing some negative stories about hostelsI I was a little hesitant and worried about safety etc. What a pleasant experience. It was immaculate, easily accessible, and employees one of the friendliest staffs I've ever dealt with. They made my daughter feel welcome and safe. If you need a place to just crash but don't want to pay Chicago hotel fees, this is perfect. Comfy bed, Wi-FI, clean bathrooms no frills, and $120/night….A must see! ☮

Located in nice, quiet upscale neighborhood. Convenient to DePaul University. Friendly staff. Rooms are spartan but clean and comfortable bed. Nice common kitchen. The politest group of fellow residents made the stay especially nice. The Sunday evening improv outing at The Playground Theater with someone named Haney and then the improv that followed him was not worth going to....even for just $5.00. Everything else was great!

Our hostel was excellent! The staff went out of the way to make sure we had everything and that we knew how to get to where we were going. We were close to food, shopping, train (to get to Cubs game, Field Museum etc.)we were close to buses. We never drove our car until we left from the weekend. Our family highly recommends this facility! We really felt apart of the neighborhood and felt like we were in Chicago!

Never experienced anything like this before. The best way to describe it was like a college dorm and I loved it and the atmosphere. Will do again at this same location!
