Best value in most exciting part of downtown Los Angeles! Walk to the Gold Line, Arts District and Little Tokyo. Near easy public transport, great restaurants. Private rooms with shared bath and kitchen cleaned daily. Friendly international vibe!

The space

Due to demand, we only respond to fully verified guests who provide a clear profile photo, full name, age, name of current employer and/or school, and descriptive purpose of visit. Thank you for your understanding.

Live in in the heart of Little Tokyo and the Arts District with other international travelers and visitors! Clean, convenient, and inexpensive. You won't find a better deal in LA.

Furnished dorm room available for minimum four days, long term stays encouraged. Rooms come with closet, sink, bed, desk, chair and mini fridge. Unfurnished rooms are also available, please see our other listings.

LENGTH OF STAY - We generally accept reservations of 30 days maximum length. If you wish to reserve for a longer period you may discuss that with the apartment manager after you check in for your initial stay.

ROOM DESCRIPTION: Private rooms are for one individual, have locks on doors, and come with a sink. Kitchen, toilet, shower rooms are shared, and professionally cleaned each day. This is a dorm-style atmosphere with great long-term tenants, international travelers, and a friendly on-site manager. Please bring your own towel. This room is similar to the others I have listed, that's why I am just using the same photo. For views of the premises look at the other properties. Thank you for not requesting additional photos of the rooms.

PARKING: Free street parking is available nearby (but it goes quickly), otherwise it is $4.00/day at the meters. Metered spots are enforced from 6 am - 4 pm and they also cost $4.00 per day.

GETTING THERE: From LAX take the FlyAway bus to Union Station, then take the Gold Line to the Little Tokyo stop. The building is two short blocks away.

WEEKEND ARRIVAL: Please keep in mind that if you are arriving on a Saturday or Sunday the manager may not be there in person to let you in, but there is a lockbox from which you retrieve your keys.

CHECKING IN: Check-in is at 3 pm, Check-out is at 11 am. Once your reservation is accepted you will receive a phone number for the on-site manager, Alex (different from the one currently listed). Please contact him immediately to discuss check-in details. Please do not wait until the last minute to call. Thank you!

SECURITY DEPOSIT: Because most of our tenants are long-term guests, our security deposit is the equivalent of one month's rent. The deposit is held by Airbnb through your credit card and they will return it to you after your stay. We have had a couple hundred individual reservations with our building and have only had to make deductions for damages a couple of times. If you are a responsible guest, you should have no worries.

ADDITIONAL GUESTS: Additional guests are not allowed without prior notification and prior permission given by the host. Unless agreed to otherwise, any additional guests who stay past 10 pm will be charged an additional $10 per night. If an additional guest is brought without prior permission and paid for in advance, you may lose your security deposit or have your reservation cancelled. Thank you in advance for not bringing overnight guests without prior permission.

Guest access

Shared bathrooms are cleaned daily, as is the shared kitchen. Laundry facilities are on site. We have a communal, international atmosphere.

Interaction with guests

Alex is the on-site apartment manager and can answer all of your questions.

Other things to note

There is a historic old brick building that used to house the workers who built Los Angeles. There are a mix of long and short-term guests here. If you are not comfortable with shared, older facilities, this may not be the best fit. Keep in mind there is no A/C. Currently construction is taking place nearby which may cause noise and dust.

Jeff and Alex were great. Quickly responded when I needed help or questions. The place is simple and clean. Alex does a great job of up keeping the charming historical hotel. You are in the heart of the artist district and center of everything. I use to live in this area, great location for travelers and explorers of LA

The accomodation is very well located next to the Little Tokyo district, with lots of great food and all the facilities to still your basic needs. I never met Jefferson, but Alex was always very friendly and could help with every matters concerning the accomodation. The single room offers you all the space and privacy you need as traveler. Unfortunately I didn't have the chance to interact a lot with the other residents, but the city itself offers enough so that you definitely would never get bored.
