Chicago is one of the North American cities everyone wants to visit at least once in a lifetime, but a trip to The Windy City doesn’t come cheap. Affordable accommodation is difficult to find, but you can save a lot of money by staying in one of these three hostels.

Freehand Chicago

Staying at a four-star hotel for around $30 a night may sound like a mission impossible, but Freehand features beds in shared quad rooms that you can rent for cheap. To make the whole thing even better, this hotel is located in the very heart of the city, and you can find many restaurants and high-end stores in the surrounding area.

Wrigley Hostel

This budget-friendly hostel is located in one of the most popular neighborhoods of Chicago’s Lake View district. Its communal and outdoor areas are a great place to meet new friends during your travels, especially since they host movie nights, game nights, pizza nights, and hostel parties.

Chicago Getaway Hostel

Located in the affluent Lincoln Park district, this is one of the cheapest hostels you can find in Chicago. Its lounge looks extremely cozy, but you can also enjoy their garden and sun terrace after a long day exploring the city.
