When you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and take relaxation to the next level, come on out to the HI Malabar Farm hostel. Located on a working farm in Malabar Farm State Park, our hostel feels like a cozy inn, but with the friendly, community atmosphere that you find at a hostel. Guests from around the world come together to share meals and trade stories in our dining room.

The surrounding state park offers stunning hills and valleys that beg to be explored, either on foot or bicycle, and if you come in winter, don’t forget your cross-country skis or snowshoes. We may be nestled in a remote, rural area, but we still have Wi-Fi to keep you connected to the rest of the world. We’re open from March to October, but you can rent the whole hostel, for up to 20 people, any time of year. We hope to see you soon!


After your country adventure, head to the big city and see all there is to see in the wonderful Chicago!
