I live within a 1/2 mile from two (2) police stations...one is a police training station.
At ANY given time, you will see several police patrols going up and down the street, to and from the station. There is only so much precaution a traveller can take, but its always nice to know that protection is just AT the corner. So be safe! For those who need additional security, feel free to take advantage of my night time free shuttle from the nearest train stop!
I will admit, there are better areas in Chicago but none will be as memorable as your stay here! If you are looking for a posh, well-to-do area, DO NOT BOOK HERE! hehehe This is an urban inner city community that has undergone nice redevelopment due to the brand new college recently built (but has some work to be done). I live near a beautiful massive park with a full running track, community center /swimming and children's playground.

Es un muy buen sitio donde alojarse. Bien comunicado con el centro a tan sólo 30 minutos en tren. Además en la casa puedes conocer a más gente de diferentes sitios que comparten contigo sus experiencias. Muy bien equipada en cuanto a cocina, lavabo y habitaciones. La recomendaría a aquellas personas que buscan interacción y nuevas experiencias con otra gente. Además Annie es muy amable con sus huéspedes.
My decision to go to Chicago was at the last minute, and late at night. Annie replied right away, and gave all the info plus more that I needed to get there. She directs you to read her website about her place and neighborhood, and she gives it to you straight. After reading it, I was hooked. I appreciate a genuine straight forward person and Annie sounded like that kind of person. Annie proved to be a wonderful caring host. She provided info on what fun things going on in Chicago, and she also insisted on picking anyone once it got dark. On her site she said her place was where you would meet interesting people and make life long friends. And I did! One day, Annie arranged an outing and about 10 of us went. If I had gone to a hotel I know I would not have had this much fun. Visiting a city for the first time is done best with friends, and that's exactly what I found with Annie and her guest. When I go back to Chicago, I will definitely stay at Annie's place!
the sofaSleeper has seen better days and 24 people on the same night was a bit to much "shared room/house" for me.
Annie's house is a great experience, you can know a lot of people and she s really a nice person.
The best thing is that she really take care about you. This has no value. Thank you!!!
Esta fue mi primera experiencia fuera de mi pais. Al principio estuve asustado porque debia entender toda la informacion que recibia de todos mis amigos y familiares. "No hables con nadie", "cuidado si pierdes el vuelo"entre otras cosas. Cuando llegue a la casa de Nonya me tranquilice al ver que ella es amable y al ver otros compañeros de vivienda. Enseguida me senti en casa...
La verdad que Nonya no miente, vivi la experiencia de Chicado de una manera diferente. Pude compartir y hacer nuevos amigos. Conoci la ciudad desde las afueras hasta el el centro.
Fui a la feria de NRA SHOW 2013 y tuve la oportunidad de setirme seguro en mi sofacama. Y no olvidar que practique mucho el ingles.
Recomiendo esta experiencia al 100%
Host: Annie is a great host and person to talk to. She is very knowledgeable about the city and is always ready to make your trip better. I only brought a credit card to purchase my bus card and of course they didn't accept credit cards. Without hesitation, Annie loaned me the funds. Also... if it weren't for her, I would have missed my early morning flight out of Chicago!!
Home: Her place is extremely clean (including the bathroom!). I didn't know what to expect with so many people being there, but everyone cleans up after themselves. It puts you in mind of a co-op meets a hostel. She is making efforts to renovate and is open to suggestions. I stayed on the pull out sofa. The box springs aggravated my old cheer injuries, but that certainly didn't stop me from passing out and oversleeping several times :)
Location: Annie is very honest in her post. If you mind your Ps & Qs you will be fine. The only difficulty I had with the location is that cab drivers are hesitant to drop you off or pick you up... BUT Annie has a shuttle service. Just make sure to give her a heads up if possible. The bus runs frequently and is less than a 5 min walk away. I was visiting U Chicago and Northwestern law. I had no problem getting to either location.
Overall: This is a great place if you are on a budget and open to new experiences. You will meet people you might not have otherwise crossed paths with. Get ready!
At Annies place we had a great time and met a lot of people from all over the world. Her house is a not very near to the downtown city but easy reachable with the subway.
Annie is a lovely lady, who can tell a lot of stories and gives you a private city.
The stay at Annie's place was great! She is a great host and you get to meet so many different people. Full cooking facilities and the place is kept clean. Only precaution I would take is that it is in a rough neighborhood where you will stand out, so you need to take a few precautions. In saying that there are 2 police stations located near her house so you do feel relatively safe. Having a car feels like the safest option of getting around, but even if you don't Annie is still nice enough to pick you up from the subway station, especially at night. All in all, was a good stay!
Needed a place to stay last minute after getting stranded in Chicago an extra day during Hurricane Isaac. Annie was super-accommodating and responded right away, answered my questions, gave good directions and was available for check-in within an hour or so after our first communication. the place was very basic and is a SHARED room. she states this in the listing and as long as you realize this, you get what you pay for. very basic accommodations in the chicago area with easy access to trains and buses and VERY CLOSE to midway airport which was exactly what I was looking for. Annie came and picked me up at the train around 11PM so that I wouldn't have to walk in the dark or in the rain. she came even though i didn't ask her to...very sweet of her. she's a great host and tried hard to make sure I was comfortable with pillows, new pillowcases, new sheets, directions to and from train, which bus to take to the airport etc. Annie stays in touch constantly by all modes...through AIRBNB, direct email, SMS etc. She provided a nice document by email with precise contact info, travel info to/from her place, info on trains, buses in her area, instructions/password to get onto her home internet and was very pleasant to be around while at the space.
