Other Things to Note
We maybe be able to accommodate your pet, it's case by case. Message me about him or her and we'll see what we can do.
Availability changes frequently, so if we are full for your selected dates check back weekly, space may open up. And of course check our other listings, this room may be booked but others available (Airbnb lists by room, not property).
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.
Kelly was friendly and easy to communicate with. The room was small, but as described - and suited my needs. Aside from the bed, which really wasn't good. Also: her dog barked at me almost every time we were both in the common area for some reason. It got annoying (and I'm a dog person!). But, all in all it was a good place to stay. Everything you need is there: kitchen, washer, dryer etc. Good price too!
Good location and quiet. Kelly was sweet and simple person. Thank you to let me stay there! :)
I had a good experience. If you are looking for something cheap to crash a night it's ok. But for long term is no a good idea. The bed made a lot of sound every time I move, even a small movement...
The check out time was at 1pm but Kelly let me stay a bit longer in the room because of my flight time.
Thank you Kelly!
I booked with hardly any notice but Kelly responded straight away and I was in the room within a few hours of requesting. The room was exactly as described, a nice cozy little room within close proximity to downtown. Kelly was a great host and made me feel very welcome. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this room to anyone wanting to stay in a nice, clean and friendly place in LA.
