Chicago Getaway Hostel Hostel

616 West Arlington Place, Chicago, Chicago, USA

We offer some great extras to our guests, like our continental buffet breakfast, which includes coffee, fresh fruit, cereal, and a build-your-own-waffle station. What a lot of people don't know about our hostel is that it was originally built in 1928 as part of the Eleanor Foundation in order to provide affordable housing for women coming into the city and entering the workforce. Nearly 84 years later, we're still offering affordable lodging in an amazing and historic neighbourhood. Read more
