Amid the covid-19 pandemic, as well as Illinois Governor Pritzker issuing a “Shelter in Place” ordinance for our entire state, we are electing to close our hostel until May 15, 2020. If you have an existing reservation from now until May 15, please reach out to us at or by calling us at 773.929.5380 so that we may help you cancel your booking free of penalty. We cannot wait to accommodate you again and embrace the essence of Chicago travel that will always define our spirit.

For more information, refer to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the US State Department’s Covid-19 site, or your local health authority.
