Overall ok. Facilities outdated and noisy bunk bed
Quick weekend at Chicago. Very well located and very safe neighbourhood. Overall the Getaway is ok, however overall maintenance and cleansing could improve. Nice common areas but bunk beds quite noisy and overall outdated equipments. Low score on the toilets.

Extra clean and quiet in the heart of Lincoln Park
Very clean and quiet. Nice breakfast was a bonus. The location is amazing. Less than a mile from DePaul campus to the west and the lake/Lincoln Park to the east. We also walked to Wrigley Field for a Cubs game. Took the L back. Really impressed and expect to stay here again. Thank you for such affordable and excellent accommodation.

SMALL PRICE FOR GREAT LOCATION
This might not be the fanciest place, but for the price and location it works. try even finding a relative place in north side Chicago.
