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.

I stayed for 8 or so days at Annie's. I met a lot of cool personalities in the house & enjoyed my stay there. I was in town for work & she was kind enough to even drop me off at my coworkers hotel to go out with them. I would definitely stay again.
Well the neighborhood is comparable to the Bronx, but there really isn't anything to worry about during the day! Annie is an amazing host, SO helpful, and welcoming. The house is very accommodating, and so affordable! Definitely, recommend it if you are open to a new experience!
Everything great. No complaints. Must experience it yourself!!!
A very welcoming place to spend a few nights in Chicago -- only a 15 minute drive to downtown on the weekends and only about 25 with weekday traffic--- its a great place to base your explorations. The place is definitely a gathering of positive energy. The host is very accommodating, filled with energy and information about the area and nearby sites. Be prepared to meet a lot of new people who are all ready to have a good time; if you are looking to escape a busy hub of travelers, this is not the place. It is however perfect for those looking to meet new people and get a foothold on a short or long term stay in Chicago.
Annie was a sweetheart. We arrived in the early evening from O'Hare and took the Green Line. She was prompt with picking us up from the station. We were only in Chicago for 2 nights, but the house was clean, the kitchen was warm, and the bathroom was spotless. She hooked us up with free passes and "fun day" CTA passes. The other guests in her house were young, friendly, and helpful. We had booked a full size bunk bed, but she actually placed us in the private bedroom with the LARGE bed (that bed is REALLY huge and very comfortable). I'm originally from the Northeast, so the neighborhood didn't bother me at all---never saw anything amiss, never heard any gunshots, etc. We actually walked both mornings to the nearest CTA station and when we asked "locals" in the neighborhood for directions, they were always kind, courteous, and civil. If you're looking for a hostel-type stay, this is the place. The only thing to be aware of: the house is a ways from "downtown"---but there is a CTA station and several buses that will get you to the "city" in about 30-40 minutes.
Annie was an awesome host and very helpful and knowledgeable on how to get around the city.
Her place is so close and convenient to downtown Chicago. She takes pride in keeping her place neat tidy and cosy. And there is also a new washer for convenenience sake.
Plus you get to meet other interesting guests in the house which was part of the whole fantastic experience in her place
I will always remember the great memories of staying in her place.
We are a family with 3 kids from Estonia and stayed at Annies place for four nights in private bunk bed room. The beds were comfortable and big enough to sleep all 5 of us. We were a little worried about the neighbourhood, but I can assure I did not even once feel unsecure. In the evenings Annie picked us up from train station, but in the mornings we walked there ourselves. Annie is a very nice host and we defenetly recommend her place to stay.
Nonya is just a lovely soul and staying at her place was a very nice experience. While the neighborhood might not be the best one in Chicago I did not find it to be a problem.
She was a great host. It definitely was a better trip because of my stay here. I would stay here again if I come back to Chicago. She makes everyone who stays with her feel welcomed. Also great for if you travel to Chicago alone. You will meet others interested in exploring the city.
Experienced a new kind of vacation ! There were plenty of people there, cool people indeed. Try to not get lost in the streets around, it's kind of scary. But Annie's very nice and helpful and I had a good time !
