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.

She is a nice woman with a nice and comfortable house to stay ;)
Nonya is very very friendly and she is very helpful to fetch me to and from the train station. I feel safe and extremely satisfied with my stay there.
Her house is a nice place and the people are even better. Annie helped me out getting know train route (real simple) ten minute walk from house. All n all if I came back to Chicago I would stay there again.
Inside it is al very nice an experience on itself. Also outside is very intersting and a good experience. I didn't have any bad experences outside but I think it is scary at night. I really don't know if that was nescesary ore just me. If you are more scared, You are more in danger then when you are not. I think it is a very good experiment and it is nice that in this rough neigbourhood people are creating things like this. It was a true adventure!
Nonya is the best!!!! (: I didn't have so many time to spend at her house, but the time I spent I felt so comfortable and felt like I was at my home, with old friends! Staying there was the opportunity I had to meet her crazy and lovely residents and people from a bunch of countries and different perspectives than mine. If I have the chance to go to Chicago again before I go back to Brazil, I will stay there again.
Nonya's house is basically good place to stay with comprehensive facility, reasonable location and exceptional cheap price.
Met a lot of awesome people and had a great time despite my short time there. I wish I could've stayed longer!
Nonya is really really cool and I regret I didn't stay in Chicago longer... I was hesitant at first to be away from downtown but man I made a mistake and should've stayed here my entire trip! Its basically like a hostel but way more fun because everyone was really chill, from all over the world, and very friendly and great getting to know. If you're easy going, minimal and love to explore, then stay here! Nonya's also really friendly and very accommodating. I got there late at night and she was willing to pick me up from the train station. I decided to walk it because the night was nice. The neighborhood looks like it can be dangerous but I felt really safe at the house and safe enough with common sense to be out alone. Anyway, highly recommend for anyone who wants to have fun!!
This is a fantastic place to stay in Chicago! Annie is really friendly and in touch with all community happenings, so she'll help you find something to do :) Everything is exactly like she says on her website. The house has a great vibe to it and the air mattress is super comfy--better than most hostel beds in fact! It's only a 10 minute walk to the red line (which runs 24 hours) - and Annie is always available after a certain time to give you a ride home if need be. Highly recommended.
This was great for the price. She upgraded me from an air mattress to a full sized bunk bed. It's a quick 30 minute train ride to downtown. Really easy to get to and from places. Not in the safest area but didn't have any problems. The house is full with guests who are nice, friendly, and good company. She even allows you to use fridge and make things to eat in the kitchen.
