The space

You are booking a minimalist room in a sparsely decorated apartment. You get complete access to your bedroom and no one will be in there during your stay except for you and your party. There may be up to 4 other guests staying on the futons in the living room.

Guest access

Guests have access to the facilities on the main floor only. Guests booked in the living room are not allowed in the bedrooms. The second floor is off limits and for owners only.

Interaction with guests

I will not interact with you as much, but Jae, your on site contact, will be there daily. We do our best.

In order to provide the best service possible, please note that if you set a check in time, we reserve the right to charge you $3.75 for every 15 minutes you are late. We both have other jobs and if we are not here we are paying someone 15 bucks per hour to wait for you.

We have no choice but to include this surcharge as every week we have people who ask us to meet them at one time and are late from 1 to 8 hours without so much as a phone call until they are already late. Please help us by sticking to your schedule.

The neighbourhood

Welcome to Little Vietnam! This room is in a shared apartment near the Argyle train stop. This is an ethnically diverse neighborhood near the lake. There is tons of food in the neighborhood, and less than half a mile from the Aragon Ballroom.

Getting around

4 blocks from the Argyle Red Line stop.
Just 4 stops to Addison and Wrigley Field!
30-35 minutes to the Loop (downtown).

Other things to note

Noise pollution from neighbors can occasionally be loud. We're averaging about 2 nights a month. We provide ear plugs and I have no hangups on calling the police if it's out of hand. Just let me know, even if it's 3am. Call and wake me up.

J's place was easy to find and spacey. There's a private room and communal living area and we felt as though I had privacy the entire time. The room was clean and J was very accommodating. One thing to keep in mind with this space is it's communal and you won't know how many people will be staying, so the line for the bathroom can be annoying. Other than that our stay was pleasant and enjoyable.

Response from Joe:
There are two bathrooms, and we had one guest who was taking 30-45 minute shower trips multiple times a day. This guest is no longer with us. We are very sorry you had to wait a few times :(

The location is very good. You ll find good places to eat and hang around. There is no free parking but the train stations are very close. The room is quite spacious and John let me check in early and is very cooperative and approachable all the time. The only issue I had was the room light was a lot dimmer and it was hard to read or do something. But you can always go in the beautiful kitchen for that stuff. The washroom was very pretty. You can also get to meet other guests of Airbnb who were very nice and helpful. Overall I liked my stay here and would love to go back.
