About Chicago Getaway Hostel, Chicago

Value for money

Located in a stylish brick building in Park West, the Chicago Getaway Hostel is a Lincoln Park property that offers a change of pace from the traditional hostel. While traditional hostels have membership fees, this elevated one offers more typical hotel-like amenities.

Located in a 1928 Georgian Revival landmark, the Chicago Getaway Hostel features a number of amenities for comfort during your Chicago stay. Free Wi-Fi is included throughout the entire hostel, as well as free housekeeping to keep things fresh and clean.

A 24-hour front desk is offered, so you can get assistance or ask questions at any time of the day. The non-smoking hotel also features a game room and baggage storage as needed.

A low-key hostel with 115 rooms, the accommodations are casual and easygoing, offering a break in price from traditional hotels. Each room contains bunk beds and a full-size bed, as well as air conditioning to help you keep your cool. A desk with a chair is available as well. The common game room features billiards, foosball, and two flat-screen televisions.

Dining options within walking distance of the Chicago Getaway Hostel are plentiful, with more than 130 within less than half a mile. The Pasta Bowl, an Italian restaurant, is a four-minute walk away. Del Seoul, which is within a four-minute walking distance, offers Korean cuisine.
