Five minutes from the train station, which is 15 min from the city center. Great, lively neighborhood. This is a fantastic room with a fantastic host. It has a full size bed in an 8’X8’ room and is decorated with art from Mexican American artists who live here in Pilsen. If you’re looking for posh then stay in a different neighborhood. Prices are as low as $30 but generally are more on weekends. Lastly, please do not ask for an early or late check in because I can not accommodate that request.

Matt is a wonderful host. His apartment is tidy and well-located, close to great restaurants and the pink line. His dog, Ziggy, is a sweetheart. The apartment overall is of great value. We stayed there for four nights and had a wonderful time.

Very helpful! great recommendations. Can only text him through Airbnb; it would be better to be able to call him directly.

Matt was really accommodating and welcoming. He gave solid advice about Chicago and knew a lot about the city. Very nice place, clean, great location, great food nearby, safe neighborhood; all you could ask for. Would book again if I find myself in Chicago again.

I would not recommend to anyone. It’s a small basement apartment sharing a small space and bathroom with the host. Matt is not the easiest to talk with and the apartment power went out for about 8 hours amoung other things which resulting in me finding alternate accommodation!

Response from Matt:
Ouch. So nothing positive? He told me that the reason he left early was because he had a workshop to attend to in Detroit. When he asked for a refund, I told him so long as he cancels to make the calander open to allow for other guests to book I could. But he never did and so I didn’t give him a refund... There was a power outage that I couldn’t help. He left for the day and before he returned the power turned back on, so his “8 hours” of power outage he just made up. It was more like two and it was nothing I could help. And it’s not a basement apartment, it’s on the first floor. And the room IS small. And so is the bathroom. I hope you can see this in the images.

I enjoy hosting people and seeing to it that guests have a great time in Chicago. There's tons to do and the pizza is second to none and is also my favorite food. Downtown is fun, but there are also fun neighborhoods, like Wicker Park, that are nearby. There's a cool pub that I'v…
