If you have stayed in a hostel before, you probably already know what to expect. You have one of four rooms. We will provide you with clean bedding and toilet paper on the first day, but after that you do your own laundry (washer and dry on site). Your toiletries (shampoo, soap, etc...) are provided by you. Sure, if you need something or lost something, we will help you out, just ask. But in general you bring your own stuff. (There are a number of markets a short walk from the room.)

The common areas (kitchen and bathrooms) are cleaned weekly, but you are expected to clean up after yourself, and to do so immediately after using the area. If any common area is messy, contact me immediately and we will take care of it, no problem. (I live next door.) We do not always check the common areas everyday, so please, if something is not right, let me know. I want to know. I will take care of it :)

You have your own private room; however, the bathrooms and kitchen are shared. There are four private rooms per unit. Thus it is necessary to respect others wishes, which means:
1) No smoking inside. Please smoke outside. There is a back patio and a front porch.
2) No parties.
3) No loud music or such.
If you have a problem with someone leaving the common areas dirty, smoking, loud noise, etc.... let us know immediately, and we will take care of it right away.

We are happy to help and advise, but basically we will leave you alone unless you ask. It is a great room for the price, and you cannot do better for access to public transport.

It's near public transportation and not long (by car) to DTLA. Everything you need!

Was a great stay during the whole stay. My only problem is I felt the place would do better if it were polished up. There were cracks on the floor plates and the floors felt sticky. But over all a great stay.

Great location near the heart of Koreatown, was easy to explore LA from here. Kelly was responsive and helpful in getting me settled.

Clean and comfortable in general. The outlet in my room is rather loose and need to be fixed tho.

Kelly's place is great. Kelly was very helpful and accommodating. Communication was easy. The place is in a good location in that it is close to public transit and walking distance to a few grocery stores if you are in town for a longer stay and need to shop. The area in Koreatown is fine. It can be noisy but you're in a city so that is to be expected. Not a lot of nightlife in the immediate vicinity but there is some stuff within walking distance. The gated parking was very convenient and I never had to worry about parking or if my car was somewhere safe. Wi-fi was strong and I never had any problems. Good place for short or extended stays. As long as you understand that it is like a hostel/shared apartment and not some posh bread and breakfast, your expectations will be met. Some cleanliness and noise does depend on who else is staying at any given time. Unless you want something more luxurious, there is really no reason to pay more for somewhere else when you can stay here easily with all the essentials. I'm glad I chose this place and definitely would again in the future.
