Really enjoyed the friendly, laid-back and attractive surroundings and atmosphere of Chicago Getaway. My daughter and I booked a private room for two weeks while she was taking classes at Second City. Our room was very simple with only the basic amenities but was smartly decorated with an orange accent wall featuring a silhouette of Humphrey Bogart and very attractive... More

The common areas are large, with several tables, chairs and sofas. The breakfast has a great variety of food. The hostel is located on a quiet street, not so far from the train line. The staff is helpful.

This was my first hostel experience and it was a great one! It's well located as many restaurants are nearby and Chicago downtown is less than 30 minutes away using the metro. Staff is very helpful and help make this place a nice hostel.

I have stayed at quite a few hostels over the past few year and none of them come close to the superiority that was displayed by the Getaway hostel. None. To break it down: Check in was quick, we were allowed into our room hours early (much needed following a night in an airport). We were in a 4 bed... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a private room with the shared bathroom. The women's washroom was only three doors down so it was very convenient to get to and never busy. At first I didn't think the beds were going to be that great as they were thin mattresses, but I had an excellent sleep every night. There was... More

The location is not bad and the cleanliness is great. However, some of the staff can be a bit cold but mostly are nice.I would give a four stars for this hotel but the price can be very high in the weekend.

We stayed for about 4 days at the Gateway Hostel and although we are no longer used to stay in hostels, I have to say that this choice was the best for both comfort and location, price and hospitality. The private room ensures privacy and the shared bathrooms were always clean and available. The opportunity to have breakfast included is... More
