Welcome to Chicago Getaway Hostel located in the heart of Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Our hostel features 115 rooms and accommodates up to 338 guests. We have a wide variety of room offerings from large dorms to intimate private rooms, many with en-suite bathrooms. Our neighborhood is full of great restaurants, pubs, music venues and is along the banks of Lake Michigan. The historic Lincoln Park zoo is located a short walk away, as is DePaul University and let’s not forget the wonderful beaches nearby.

We offer a great atmosphere with outings daily to places like Kingston Mines – a great blues club to our regular pub crawls, comedy nights, free meals & BBQ’s, bike rides and a whole lot more. We’re always trying to save you money and time and offer many discounted attraction passes, transit passes and the ability to keep your workout routine while on the move. We also offer private parking on site, free housekeeping service, linens and towels and complimentary fast WI-FI around the building.

You’ll love our free daily breakfast featuring items that appeal to kosher, gluten free and daily free diets. We have hot food too, including scrambled eggs and make- your- own- waffles. Our restaurant grade kitchen features everything you’ll need to make a gourmet meal – and for those of you who like to grill outdoors, we have you covered there too.

Our staff all knows and loves the city of Chicago – this will enable you to experience Chicago like a local! We look forward to welcoming you soon!
