Hostels Save You Money When Staying Downtown 

Hostels are fantastic if you're looking to save as much money as possible. They're your cheapest option when it comes to accommodation and are great for meeting people, too. Chicago isn't a big hostel city, but there are still a few decent options. 

The HI-Chicago offers great value for money for a downtown hostel, ranking in the top for "best location" in North America in the HostelBookers Awards for Excellence 2010. There, you can find six-bed dorms for just under $37 per night, with a 10-bed dorm costing $32 per night. Enjoy the complimentary breakfast, take advantage of the close transport links that get you to the University of Chicago campus, and relax with a few games of pool in the games room. 

For a more affordable hostel stay, look at the Holiday Jones SRO, where you can stay in a six-bed dorm for just $16. Located in the diverse neighborhood of Wicker Park, you'll be perfectly located for nights out in local bars and restaurants with newfound friends. With great public transport connections, you'll still be able to reach the university when needed.

No matter where you decide to base yourself, Chicago's great public transport network and wide variety of accommodation means you'll never be stuck for somewhere to stay.
