The bnb is spotless and the hosts are wonderful and welcoming. I really enjoyed my room (leather room) and the facilities. The noise at night from the club really didn't bother me. I'd love to stay here again.

I have nothing but praise for this place. It's right on the same block as two of the best gay bars in Chicago and a leather shop run by the proprietors of the guesthouse. There are decent places to eat, supermarket and liquor stores within walking distance, and public transport to downtown Chicago is right at the front door. I will definitely be back again.

This is the perfect place for the LGBT visitor to Chicago. The B&B is not too far from the Red line, so you can get there by L for only $3 from both Chicago airports.

The leather room was decorated perfectly in theme. The entire room was spotless and clean. It's in a great location near a couple of clubs, a leather shop, and several restaurants. The owners are very nice and accommodating. My overall experience was wonderful and better than expected.

The pictures and website don't do this place justice. It really is a nice space. It feels like staying in a 5 bedroom apartment with your own secure bedroom and access to a large kitchen, living/dining area and two large bathrooms. I only ran into a couple of people all weekend, so felt like I had the place to myself. The space is a few floors above the clubs, but if you lay down to sleep before 4am, you will definitely hear the thumping. They do have ear plugs available. The bathrooms could have used a little attention, but know you are sharing with a number of other guests. Otherwise, a great home base for clubbing with a good little diner across the street. Bus stop right out front takes you into Boystown if you want more. I had little expectation for food/snacks, so the little that was available met my expectations.

I have known about this bed and breakfast for quite sometime and have heard nothing but good reviews. So, I decided to check it out myself. I was there for Halloween weekend and had a blast. The bed and breakfast is amazing. The staff was extremely accommodating and very friendly. They are very detailed and you can see how passionate they are about their BnB. Its awesome! Very clean and friendly. Everything was perfect. Thank you and I will be back.

The rooms and availability of coffee and snacks 24 hours a day, everyday, made my stay here very outstanding. The room and public spaces were immaculate, as was the shared bathroom facilities. If I had any complaints at all, it would be that the hosts were mysteriously absent after I checked in. That didn't present any meaningful problems - but it did seem odd.
