As a thrift world traveler, I rate AsterHouse one of the best apartments I have ever lived in my life. I can prove it by saying that I came back to AsterHouse last three summers with relatively a large group of people from Japan. I am happy that they were very happy with the accommodations and the owners hospitality. AsterHouse is fully furnished and they had everything we needed except for food and drinks. Price-wise it is hard to beat. The owner was very reliable and swift in responding to our requests. If anyone asks me where to live in Chicago for a short term or a longer term, I definitely recommend AsterHouse.
