The Space

Private room in 4 bedroom 2 bath apartment. Secure, your room has a deadbolt lock. These apartments are used as dormitories for international students (adults) studying at local colleges and USC. It's like a hostel, but you have your own room. There are two twin beds, two desks, chairs and lamps. There is a closet. No radio, no TV but there is free wireless Internet, and it is fast and stable.

Between Hollywood and Downtown, 1 block walk to the Vermont/Wilshire subway station (Red and Purple Lines). Easy public transport. Express busses, local busses, the subway.... taxi from the place to LA Live is $7 - $8. Other places close by: Braille Institute of America, Downtown, The Grove, Hollywood, Los Angeles City College, Universal Studios, USC. Close hospitals: Children's, Hollywood Presbyterian, Kaiser, Good Samaritan, St. Vincent.

Rooms usually have two beds, but if you need one more, or only want one, we can accommodate you. There are two bathrooms per four room unit, and you have full access to the kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, rice cooker, pots and pans, etc...)

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.

There are 4 apartments total, and extra rooms are available to the public through airbnb. 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 the other available (Airbnb lists by room, not property).

One block from the Vermont/Wilshire Red and Purple subway lines, a few stops from Hollywood or Downtown LA, and a few more to Universal Studios.

Please see the house rules for more information!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great location close to public transport. Greeted on arrival, met Kelly very friendly and showed us everything we needed.
    There were others staying although seemed to keep to themselves which was fine.
    The place seem safe and secure with all the gates.
    Negatives would have to be that the bathroom wasn't really clean, and that out door handle was ready to fall off but either of these things were too much of a problem as we could lock the door from both sides. And for a cheap place to stay as travellers it was just what we needed. Thank you.

  • Exactly what was described. Perhaps a little dirtier, but not filthy. Super great value for a safe place to stay in LA. Parking was secure and the neighborhood wasn't bad, the property was fenced. Should be mentioned that the room is right in the middle if Koreatown, an interesting surprise for us. I'd recommend it to any travelers looking for a cheap place in LA.

  • Good location. Great hosts. The house and our room were fine. My friends and I enjoyed our stay there :)

  • Very good place! Closer to subway station and bus stop for whatever place you wanna go in LA. The room and house in general are very clean and comfortable. The owners are very good people.

  • Somewhat minimalist, but perfect for a visitor on a budget. Host was friendly and accommodating. Dorm-style... bathroom and kitchen are shared. Pets allowed. Access to coin-operated washer and dryer. Close to subway stop.

  • They slipped me in at the last minute. Host was very helpful/polite. Amenities were worth the price and location!

  • I don't think there is a cheaper place to stay in LA. The nice thing about this place is that it is the price of a hostel, but you get your own privacy. It's in a great location - public transportation is close by and lots of great places to eat. The wifi connection is good. It's a little bit run down and not the cleanest, so bring your flip flops!

  • Kelly met us when we arrived and showed us how to park in the back. Our room had two beds, with sheets provided. The room itself was simple but clean. Only two bathrooms for four bedrooms, but my friend and I didn't have an issue with it. Bathrooms were clean as well. Would recommend this place as a great cheap place to stay!

  • Decent accommodations- similar to a hostel. The shared spaces (kitchen, bathrooms) are barebones, but adequate. The parking space is extremely useful, since street parking in the area is hit or miss. Wireless is provided and it's fairly quick as long as everyone else isn't using it. For the price, I can't complain! Ryan was very easy to communicate with, and when I shortened my stay, I got a refund almost immediately.
