In the room you have the beds, desks, chairs, and a closet or armoire. There are two full baths, and a fully equipped kitchen which are shared. Free PARKING and WIRELESS internet!

Located a block and a half from the main subway line in Los Angeles (the Red Line), its your best bet if you plan to use public transportation. Downtown LA, Hollywood and Universal Studios are all on the Red Line. The neighborhood has lots of good restaurants, shops and nightlife.
There maybe other rooms available if this one is booked for the dates you want, so please check the “My Other Listings” box in the column to the right.
Some frequently asked questions, and the answers:
Q – Are sheets and such provided?
A – Yes, bedding is provided. If you need more (say an extra blanket or comforter) just ask. We suggest you bring your own towels, though we have some available.
Q – Is it safe?
A – Yes. Your room has a deadbolt lock. The property is gated. The neighborhood is safe and well patrolled by the police. There are probably more people actually walking around this neighborhood than anywhere else in LA. One of the few places other than downtown where you will actually encounter a crowded sidewalk.
Q – Is it central?
A – Yes, kind of. Remember what Gertrude Stein said about Los Angeles “There’s no there there.” Well, it is still fairly true. LA is very spread out and not a centralized city: if you are close to one area, you are by definition far from another. The location is between Hollywood and Downtown and it is easy to get to either because of the nearby subway.
You can get a private car from LAX to our location for about $5.00! Ask us for the details!
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.
Good sized room in Korea town. Access to a large kitchen as well and although it was a shared bathroom with other guests there were two bathrooms and always plenty of space
Kellys place is ideally located and offers a comfortable stay for a reasonable price. The house is lovely and the room was clean and as you can see in the pictures. The gated parking space in the back is certainly a plus when you travel by car. There's also a coin laundry in the building.
However, as described, the place is quite informal and airbnb is provided on a professional basis. So if you are looking to interact with your host, this is not that place. Kelly was friendly though, was available and provided all the information needed.
Even though the general spaces could've been a bit more tidy, I would definitely stay there again.
We stayed here 50 days.
Kelly was really kind and house was very nice place to go anywhere!
We miss Kelly and Gizmo so much!
It was a great stay at Kelly's place. It's in a very central location and I loved having a place to park my car. The apartment was clean and peaceful. Stay here!
A Kelly foi uma excelente anfitriã! Sempre atenciosa e presente nas necesidades que tivemos. Os vizinhos sao tranquilos e o local e bem localizado, limpo e seguro, inclusive com estacionamento fechado para o carro que (website hidden) recomendo esse local.
