Here are some reviews of our hostel by guests:
“I have stayed at the Chicago Getaway Hostel many times over the last 10 months, and at this time would like to comment on the consistency of the Hostel, its staff, its amenities, and the cleanliness. First, the staff is very eager to help in what ever way they can, whether it be the front desk staff, the cleaning staff, and or the cooks. Unlike chain hotels, which have a constant turn over of staff, the Hostel oddly enough has a very consistent group of people working there, one sees each and every trip. As a patron, this helps reassure me that they must treat their employees well, who in turn treat the customers well.” Matthew from Expedia.com – April 9, 2013
“One of the cleanest hostels I have ever been in here and overseas” Robert via SurveyMonkey.com – September, 2012
Very good location, clean, excellent service and very good breakfast … highly recommended! ” Hostelworld – September, 2012
” The way the dining area is set up it’s the best place to meet people especially at breakfast. The piano and guitar was awesome as we had a few randoms in the hostel that would play and sing well. It’s in a safe neighborhood in Lincoln Park.” Hostelbookers – September, 2012
“First time staying in a hostel in America, and wasn’t sure what to expect. This place exceeded all of my expectations. Highly recommend it and would absolutely stay here again.” TripAdvisor – September, 2012
“this is the only hostel we have ever stayed in but it is cleaner than many 4-star hotels we have used. Cleanliness seems to be a source of pride for you whereas other hotels consider it something they “have to do”" Dave via SurveyMonkey.com – September, 2012
“This hostel is definitely one of the best I have stayed at. The service is amazing and the staff host all activities (pub crawl, blues night, walking tour etc) and join in on the fun with you.” Tripadvisor – September, 2012
“I had a great time there. I would love to go again. Wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks to the super friendly and helpful staff for the restaurant, event, and transportation recommendations! Oh, and also for the discounted tickets to Sky Deck!” Hotels.com – July, 2012
“I LOVE traveling to Chicago, but HATE paying exorbitant amounts for overnight accommodations. The Getaway Chicago Hostel is an answer to prayer. It is in the beautiful, Lincoln Park area, has exceptionally easy access to the brown and red lines, as well as access to CTA bus routes on Fullerton, Clark, and Halsted. It is in easy walking distance to some excellent restaurants and cafe`s. AND They have a full service kitchen at your beckon call if you so choose to cook for yourself or your group.
2Thumbs Up!!!” Expedia.com – August, 2012
