Maarten Geinaert hails from Brugge, Belgium but chose Chicago Getaway Hostel as his lodging base for his U.S. travels. Thus far, he’s having a great time, we sat down with him one late night and got his recommendations….
I’ve stayed at a number of hostels in Chicago and this one is by far the best. Slightly outside of the main city, but very close to trains, busses, the zoo, bars and the lake. Public transport in Chicago is amazing so location is more-or-less fine, particularly given that it’s in a super expensive beautiful neighbourhood. The hostel is one of the nicest I’ve stayed at worldwide with very friendly staff and activities most nights of the week. Highly recommend.
