Private Rooms/Upscale Neighborhood/Few Rules
Was looking for a reasonable priced stay for a quick trip to Chicago for a Cubs game. Almost too-good-to-be-true choice in upscale neighborhood by Clark&Fullerton among multi-million dollar brownstones. 1 block to Clark and several bus lines toward Wrigley, Michigan Ave, Lakefront, or the Loop. 3 blocks to Fullerton Red Line stop (by DePaul U) which will get you to Midway in 30 minutes with one easy transfer, or to Wrigley Field, Sox park, the Loop, River North, Magnificent Mile, etc. And don't be fooled by the word "Hostel" in the name. Spacious private rooms for 1-3 people (with bunked double and twin beds and private updated bath) are available for about $100 - much less than nearby hotels. Full kitchen is available. Included breakfast is served 7-9am. Unlike many hostel options, alcohol is allowed in rooms and public areas. TV room. Desk staff was friendly and helpful. All was very clean. Key card gives you 24 hour ability to come and go. ATM inside. Public phones. Library. Room just had bed and desk with chair, but there are comfy easy chairs in public areas.

Great stay for the price, great staff.
The staff here are very nice and helpful. We stayed two nights in the room for six. The beds weren't as bad as people say, better than a couch pull out. It was clean, even in the shared kitchen and bathrooms. Coffee options could be better. It's in a great neighborhood that was good for walking around. I would say, in the room for six, there was only one chair and small desk, putting another small table with a couple chairs would be helpful. You can't sit upright on the lower bunk without hanging your neck low so you pretty much have to sit on the floor. If you have a bunch of devices to charge bring a strip there are only a few outlets. Overall, great stay for the price, with six of us it worked out perfectly!

Will definitely return!
This was my first stay in a hostel, and I was very pleased. I chose the hostel because of their affordable pricing. With so many low-end chain hotels in the city offering exorbitantly priced rooms, the Chicago Getaway Hostel is the best value hands down if you're looking for a clean, comfortable, and safe place to serve as base camp while exploring Chicago! I loved the convenience to Lincoln Park and the great variety of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

I will stay here again and will recommend to a fri
Location: Quiet and seems safe neighborhood. 10 mins walk to metro station and 5 mins walk to bus station. I was also able to book Uber pool at 7.30pm with just 3 minutes wait. Room: Room was very basic, beds/sheets/towels were clean. I had half bath in the room which was very convenient. One men's and one women's restroom in each of the floor. Restrooms looked like the gym showers and well maintained. All rooms seem to have bunk beds whether you need it or not. Watch out when getting up not to hit your head against the bed frame. Breakfast was included. Typical continental breakfast - cereals, fruit, coffee, bread, begel, oat meal, scrambled eggs.Staff is very nice. Waiters at Chicago restaurants seemed rude, comparatively the hostel staff was very friendly. We had trouble during checking in. We had booked through hotels.com but the hotel did not have my reservation in their system. They however found a room for me, but charged for the upgrade. I liked the room, so no complaints. Their front desk is super nice for a hostel. They have laundry room which is a big plus if you are backpacking. $2 wash, $1.25 dryer, $0.75 for laundry detergent. Wifi is free, but unusable. However, they have few computers in the lobby with internet access for anyone to use. They have discounted tickets for most of the Chicago must sees and the metro passes. They have daily meet ups around 8.30pm for nightly events such as comedy shows, DJ nights, pub crawl.
