Coolest New Hotels: Chicago Getaway Hostel

Chicago Getaway Hostel, Chicago

Weekly blues club tours, pub crawls, and weekend barbecues encourage hostel guests to mix and mingle. There’s a music room, whose back wall is a red stage curtain, where a piano awaits anyone who can play. (Guitars are available to borrow, in case the urge for a duet strikes.) And the amenities continue: a sleek restaurant-grade kitchen, an outdoor patio with communal grill, bike rentals, and a detailed wall calendar outlining activities around the city. The brightly colored dorm rooms accommodate up to 12, while private group rooms come with either full or half baths.
