The Best Hostels for Solo Travellers In Chicago

Travelling on your own? Then these cheap Chicago hostels are for you!

1. IHSP Chicago Hostel at Damen CTA

If you’re looking for a party, then look no further than the IHSP Chicago Hostel where you can hang out at the 24-hour roof deck all night long. The hotel also offers free pub crawls, free Wi-Fi and a great location in the middle of hip and cool Wicker Park. Extra bonus? Tavern Bar & Grille across the street offers $1 Cheeseburgers and Fries till 10pm.

2. Chicago Getaway Hostel

The Chicago Getaway Hostel hosts regular events like pub crawls, free dinners and blues bar outings that are sure to keep you occupied in the evenings. But if you arrive back after a day of sightseeing, or wake up heavy-headed after a night of mischief, you might just fancy hanging around the hostel. There are pool tables and guitars to play or free computer kiosks with internet access. There’s also a free breakfast.

3. Urban Holiday Lofts

Located in the heart of funky Wicker Park, the many bars, clubs, cafes and music venues around Urban Holiday Lofts will keep you busy all day and night long. Or hop on a bike at your hostel and go on a guided tour of the city. But if you’d rather chill out indoors, Urban Holiday Lofts offers a sky lounge, an on-site gourmet food market and a game room for plenty of in-house fun.
