Chicago is situated on the shore of Lake Michigan and is a major transportation and financial hub in the United States. If you are looking for a hostel in Chicago, there are a couple of boroughs that you should consider for your stay. The Loop is the geographical center and contains lots of theatres, shopping strips, and the famous Millennium Park. Old Town has lots of nightlife spots, while Gold Coast boasts with beautiful Victorian villas. If you like to stay where the hip and artsy people are, you could choose a hostel in River North with its accumulation of edgy art galleries and cheap eateries.
If you are flying into O’Hare Airport, do not get lost since this is one of the busiest and largest airports in the world. Getting to the city center is possible via subway. Midway Airport is closer to the city center and accessible by train. Getting around in Chicago is easy since there is an extensive public transport system in place. Chicago’s Union Station is also one of the major hubs for long distance Amtrak train, so you can get anywhere in the US.
While in Chicago, take a walk in Millennium Park and gaze at the fascinating Cloud Gate sculpture. Visit the renowned Art Institute of Chicago and catch a performance of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, one of the finest orchestras in the world. Do some serious shopping on the Magnificent Mile and eat some authentic Chicago-style pizza. At nighttime, join the locals and dive into Chicago’s vibrant nightlife (don't worry, most hostels in Chicago don't have a curfew).

Chicago Getaway Hostel
"Chicago Getaway Hostel is located in a really nice section of Lincoln Park, in a community with old townhouses, about a block away from the main drag of restaurants, shops, and bars. The Location The neighborhood feels totally safe to walk in the middle of the night, and we think the resident community has a cutoff point for noise outside. It is a few blocks from the 'L,' the public transit, which we took to get downtown along with our...

Chicago Parthenon Hostel
"The AAE Parthenon Hostel is located in Greektown, Chicago. The staff are excellent and the rooms are more than adequate. The Location The location is great!

"Nice mattresses, dirty bathrooms. - The hostel is located in a prime location, right by Wrigley Field and the nightlife around Clark Street is great. However, the hostel is a little poor when it comes to amenities. The seating isn't all that great, with fold up chairs and Ikea stools that will break tomorrow, and the bathtub that looks like it was picked up off the street. It could be a little more up to date with washing dishes procedures --...
"The room, the bed, and the bathroom are all excellent! - Very good location, easy to access anywhere and also convenient from/to Airport O'Hare. The bed is firm and solid, so even though it's bunk bed, it is less disturbing when one person turn or move on the bed. The well is thin but it is not noisy after 11pm, the only sound comes from the electronic door. You need to use the key card to enter the room and the door is heavy so it makes some...
