Used as a dormitory for international students studying at Los Angeles City College and USC. Like a hostel, except all the rooms are private, not shared. 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!
This is simple, but clean and safe accommodation at a low price. The manager lives on site. We have had over 300 guests from Airbnb and the listings are all Airbnb verified, so make your booking with confidence!
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.
Kelly was great! Very accommodating with our arrival to check in. This listing is preferably ideal for those looking to crash for the night in this very eclectic neighborhood. It's comparable to Harlem, Washington Heights in NYC. What's great about this listing is the parking, such a big deal in this neighborhood, almost impossible to find a parking spot at night so kudos to Kelly for providing this.
Kelly was a helpful host, gave a very clear introduction to the room/house. Provides a nice Lyft coupon. House is conveniently close to a metro station. The room is nice and clean.
The host is nice, and the place is nice, too. Provide laundry and kitchen. Room isn't big but sweet. Near metro rail, it's convenient. The best thing is provide taxi for free first time.
Kelly is just the best hostess .She's always helping in case you need something. Im looking forward for my next visit.
A wonderful location for people who like moving all the time, metro and busses available to go anywhere, the neighborhood was very quite and calm, the room is clean and you have to be in charge of cleaning, they provide the elements to keep it clean, hot and cold water, the kitchen needs a lit bit more cleaning but you also have all the elements for cooking, there are a lot of restaurants near to the house, I specifically recomend the boiling crab, finally kelly help us a lot, she needs to be more comunicative but it's okay.
Me and my girlfriend say thank you for everything.
The room seemed clean at first, but upon closer inspection the squalor was revealed. There was a forest of dust bunnies cultivated behind the bed, the pillows had a pungent musky aroma of mold and the mattress was flimsy and sagged heavily on the edge. The bathroom was clean but there was a strange scent that permeated throughout the house, I could not put my finger on it but perhaps it was the scent of desperation and loneliness. My final night I was awakened to yowls, hisses and dull thuds a raucous feline brawl, the grating sounds of a cat fight in the alley. It was definitely an a visceral experience of city living.
What a rude and useless review. The room smelled of desperation and loneliness? And yes, you were staying in a city.
As for the other comments, there is no smell. The mattress is 2 months old, and top of the line, it cost over $600. Oh, and during your entire stay, in the same unit as myself, you never mentioned one word of complaint. Perhaps if you had mentioned the pillows smelled or that you were desperately lonely, we could have given you a fresh set of pillows and/or directed you to a local bar.
