The Space

Your own, lockable private room in a four bedroom apartment. This room has ONE QUEEN BED.

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.

  • The place was good for the price we paid. Very quiet and spacious. The Manager was very polite and helpful at all time. A plus: available parking (very hard to find in this area)

  • We moved to LA and stayed here. Was great to have a place centrally located to figure out where we wanted to live. More than accommodating. Was a great place to stay.

  • This room is conveniently located and has a lot of great amenities, especially the parking spot and washer/ dryer. It essentially feels like a private room in a hostel, which is fine by me. The price is right and the staff is courteous and quick to respond to all questions/ issues. I stayed in two rooms in this building and this, the larger room, was much nicer (though of course it did cost more).

  • The room and the appartement was fine and appropriate concerning the price. The kitchen was well equipped but the dishes were not very clean. We have never met Ryan - but the girl who welcomed us was nice and always available in case of problems. The geographic position was good, concerning getting to downtown, although you have to keep in mind its Koreatown and quite difficult to find an american grocerie store. Nevertheless, we had a good time and can recommand it for anyone looking for cheap room, close to downtown.

  • Fantastic location :) Very nice people, we stayed there for one whole month, and the room was very homey to us. We liked it alot. You could even wash your clothes and hang it outside :) the place was old and it could use a kind hand, but for the price its fine and its super close to busses and metros which is the most important. Thanks for a great stay! I hope you enjoyed the cake!! Hugs Maria & Mathias

    June 2013
  • Stayed just for one night. Everything was fine. The room was fine and clean. I really appreciated the free own parking which was great and secure. If you have a car it is a definitely really good place to stay. Good area, by car it is close to all atractions.

    May 2013
  • Pros: Experience was good. Communication with the landlord was easy and convenient. Room had free internet. Visitors had a personal bathroom as well as access to the kitchen and laundry facilities. Building was gated and secure. Close to metro/bus station.

    Cons: Tenants on upper floor walked noisily. Floor should have been swept prior to our arrival.
