Chicago Getaway Hostel, Chicago

Great Location, Great Accommodation,Great Vacation
The Getaway Hostel is probably the best place to stay in Chicago if you're from out of town and want to live a little low to the ground while you're there. It's only a ten minute walk from the Fullerton train station which gets you access to the whole rest of Chicago by train or bus, it's a twenty minute walk from the Lincoln Park free zoo, and it's surrounded by great restaurants in several directions.There was even free street parking a couple blocks away, though I think we lucked out there. As a hostel, there are private or shared room options - if you're bringing the maximum number of people the shared room is the way to go, but if you're coming on your own or with one or two friends grabbing a bunk in the shared accommodations is easy - you can leave your valuables behind a padlock and swap stories with the other (frequently international) travelers who you'll be staying near or seeing at breakfast when you get up in time for their free breakfast service.

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.
