Spyro's basement apartment is THE COOLEST and most awesomely located place in Chicago. It is in the neatest neighborhood with so much to do and great access to CTA and Divvy bike stations. Spyro and Shiyu and just the nicest people and treated us like friends visiting from out of town and not just nameless tourists. We hope to visit Chicago again soon and we will definitely be planning our next trip around Spyro's availability.

Spyro and Shiyu are great hosts, they even surprised us with Pocky treats! My wife and I were visiting Chicago after having lived there for years, and felt like we were right back at home. The space was surprisingly large and really comfortable especially for being a renovated garden. Awesome touch with the projector screen, and great lighting. Back yard/patio was wonderful and cozy too! Access to laundry for extended stays, and included garage parking. Great location in North Center, between Montrose/ Irving Park, walking distance from Half Acre Brewery, minutes from Wrigley, and right by the thruway for easy escape out of the city. We will definitely book again next time we are back in the city.

This was an amazing find! Spyro is easily one of the best host I've ever had, the space was great, it was even better in person! Super cute, fun, spunky, clean, artsy, it felt like home to us! He was extremely helpful on so many levels, he was super nice, friendly, outgoing, couldn't have asked for a better host! And he was very fast to communicate would help you best he can! I would recommend this to everyone, you won't regret it!

Spyro and Shiyu were the kindest, most accommodating, and attentive hosts for our trip to Chicago. Communication was a breeze the entire time, the location of the apartment was safe but lively, and the apartment itself was stunning. The decor was tastefully chosen, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the apartment was stocked with anything and everything you would need. Spyro and Shiyu were lovely enough to even offer to pick us up from the bus station to ensure we didn't get lost. They provided so many great recommendations for things to do around the city and always made sure that we had everything we needed. I would stay at Spyro's apartment again in a heartbeat!

Spyro's Place was awesome! Everything was very clean and comfortable, We were in town for a music festival and his house was close enough for us to be able to take the train and walk everywhere! I would recommend his beautiful home to anyone!

Spyro and Shiyu are great hosts. They are very helpful in check-in as well as in providing touring tips. They know how to leave space to guests and are always there to help when you need them. Their place is also amazing. I can clearly see their detail-oriented attitude from their room decoration. Whenever you look carefully, you can find something interesting. The SMEG fridge, the projector, HBO now (GoT!) and the snacks are some examples of their considerate hospitality. The garage behind the house is very convenient and large enough for an SUV. The place is also relatively close to metro stations. Spyro's place is by far the best airbnb place that I've ever stayed in.

Spyro was great with responses. He stayed up and available to let us in even though we arrived near midnight. The place was quiet, clean, and such a cool space! His directions were spot on and helpful. The bed was comfy and the whole place was great. We will be booking again on our next trip to Chicago. :)

Cosmopolitan, positive, respectful and friendly. I love to explore on foot and probably will not be in the room much... yet, I enjoy a clean place. I am neat and will leave your place in great condition.
I live in Chicago and have traveled to many European destinations.
I don't smoke and am very respectful of people, nature and surroundings.
I am allergic to cats and although I love them I prefer to be in a place that has been pet free.
