  • Jubei was a wonderful host to work with; prompt and responsive and coordinated the key exchange smoothly and showed me the simple ropes of his place. As others have noted, the 'hood is a bit rough, on the edge between Japantown and Skid Row, but the building was absolutely safe and secure and nice to have parking. Jubei's loft was as pictured, light & airy, clean and well appointed with everything needed for my stay (except no TV - but no big). Loved a quick dip in the pool after my arrival. Bonus was being down the street from the Lazy Ox - great restaurant I had been to before and went again. Lots of other cozy bars/eateries in Japantown. Location is convenient for visits to Disney Hall, MOCA, etc.

  • J was a great host with an amazing spacious bright apartment. The skid row area is pretty rough but I felt totally safe and so near the buzz of Downtown.

    The pool was a great feature too.

    Thank you so much for making my stay in LA such an enjoyable one. I felt so at home!

  • Let me first begin by saying I booked a last minute trip during Christmas. I sent J an inquiry if he was able to rent out the space during the time. He responded right away! J is a great host. He showed me the whole building, the gym, parking and the pool. The building is very safe. The condo is very spacious and modern. Huge windows that allow natural sunlight. The condo is walking distance to everything in downtown. I highly recommend taking advantage of little Tokyo's restaurant for authentic food. I was a bit intimidated by the city life (all of the homeless) but quickly adapted to my surroundings. J was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He was even able to connect me with someone who is in the same industry as myself. Talk about being extra helpful! By the end my trip, he thanked me for my stay and even told me to keep in touch. I will definitely will grabbing a drink with him during my next trip to DTLA.
