Verified Reviews of Chicago Getaway Hostel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Clean, efficient, accessible, friendly and reasonably priced."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I would give it a 5/5. All was above expectations except the oatmeal on the second day; first day it was perfect and the second morning it was like glue. Other than that small set-back, it was a fun place to stay.
