Hostel Earphoria is a unique guesthouse in Logan Square Chicago, specifically designed for musicians. We have transformed an entire house into an urban rest stop for musicians on the road, giving them a space to stay, play, practice, record, collaborate and perform.
If you are looking for the formal experience you would enjoy in a hotel, Hostel Earphoria is not for you. We are for those that are more "adventure travel" oriented, who want to learn about the communities they pass through and be a part of the real Chicago music scene.
Hostel Earphoria is a single family home with 10 (website hidden) spaces, 5 private rooms and one bathroom. There is a community kitchen, living room, dining area, finished basement, back yard and deck.
Staying at Hostel Earphoria:
In addition to contacting us through Airbnb, we also request that introduce yourself to the community by posting a message on Hostel Earphoria's timeline on Mark Zuckerberg's popular social network. Tell us where you are from and what brings you to Chicago and when, how you are involved in music (we love audio-video links), and what you are looking forward to during your visit. We will reply promptly and let you know if we are able to accommodate your request. If you have a time sensitive request you may inquire via phone/text to Ben at (phone number hidden).

Interaction with Guests
Hostel Earphoria offers several spaces for collaborating:
Featuring an upright antique piano, acoustic guitars and several percussion instruments and an iMac with Logic and Final Cut for audio/video recording/editing. The PLAYroom is the perfect space for low-fi jams and impromptu performances. You'll often find musicians jamming together or DJ-ing. For the visual artists, an easel and supplies is provided. Our walls are filled with paintings and drawings done by the community.
The basement is a multi-functional room that serves as a shared performance space, practice area, recording studio and sleeping space. It is set up like a lounge with a stage at back with 6 couches and a very comfortable giant bean bag. There are plush carpets on the floor which makes everything cozy. To the back there is a 30x10 carpeted floor stage with low 5.5 celling. Bands are welcome rent the Bassment for rehearsal from 12pm-10pm (no drums/base after 10pm on weeknights and 12am on weekends).
Our lovely outdoor space in the back has a small deck and yard. There is a garden that provides the house with fresh vegetables. Hang in the hammock or sit in the grass. A small bungalow with seating under the deck surrounds an "easy to load gear in" entrance. Designated smoking areas away from our neighbors windows. This is open from 8am-12am on weeknights and 2am on weekends (no drums after 10pm).

Accurate description of the home, very welcoming, professional, and kind folk. Would recommend!
It's so lucky to stay in Earphoria for my first trip to US.Everyone was friendly. I really had great time there. Thank you guys!
Hostel Earphoria is awesome! I stayed for a week, and they instantly made me feel at home. A must stay for any touring muso's or people who want a interesting hostel experience. I would recommend to anyone that isn't a boring douche that whinges when people play music at a hostel run by musicians. Seriously. Read the description before you book a place people, Its not that hard.
Didn't quite make it to stay at Earphoria but popped my head in for a look around. Seems like the perfect place for the band to stay if on tour next time!
Very friendly people, Saturday night was awesome. It is more (website hidden) than a hostel, so not the most comfortable stay. Basement was a bit smelly and dusty.
But the music made it totally worth it.
