About this listing
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.
*** Only $210 per week *** Check the weekly rate!
This is our smallest and cheapest room. This room is only for 1 person as it has only a twin bed. If you are OK to share a twin or sleep on the floor you may add a second person for $10 more a night. Two is the maximum. If you want a bigger room, including a room for up to 4 people, please see our other listings which are on the same property!

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.
This place gets the job done.
It's cheap, functional and the host are helpful. It's not a fancy hotel but this place doesn't advertise to be one.
The neighborhood is busy and conveniently located. It's not a tourist area. A lot of families live in the area so if you need anything, it's likely around the corner. There are a few good places to eat and socialize.
Safety was never really a concern. You literally get 5 keys to about 7 different locks, and there is private parking in the rear. Although my bedroom door could have easily been stomped in, so I wouldn't stash extremely valuable equipment in your room.
There's no vent in the room I stayed in, so it got pretty dank when I closed the window at night. Again, it's a family neighborhood so there are kids running around and people working on projects in the morning. They do provide you with a fan that gets the job done.
The beds are not quality, but again, they get the job done.
The cleanliness level was expected. It runs like a hostel, so the floors are pretty dirty. The bathroom is covered in hair.
If I came again, I would bring my own pillow and bathroom flip-flops. Related to that, they were very kind in providing me with things I forgot or misplaced, if they had it available.
They have several routers, with good internet. Again, just enough to get the job done. If I was a photographer or videographer trying to get work done, I would look else where though. But for simple searching and email, it was great.
I really did enjoy this place. After long days, I looked forward to being there. If you're looking to stay in LA on a budget, in a convenient location, with relaxed and helpful host, this is the place for you.
Kelly é uma boa pessoa, ela espera você quando chegar, da todas as indicações e pronto. O quarto é como esta na foto, e as outras pessoas que alugaram são todas respeitosas também. Recomendo
Avoir une chambre privée fermant à clé tout proche du métro, d'un Starbuck et de downtown, difficile de faire mieux.
Sachez que la maison est équipée de 4 chambres, toutes louées sur Airbnb. Il y a donc un côté aléatoire sur le bruit et la propreté des autres hôtes ;)
Perso, je recommande cet endroit si vous avez un petit budget.
Kelly Family is make me feel good and really friendship.
The room is good and all service from them is very nice.
Hope to visit them again. :)
Kelly's place was in a vibrant neighborhood. Many stores and restaurants are in its vicinity. Room was small for two ppl but space was sufficient. There where two bathrooms which were ample. Overall great value.
I had a very nice stay with Kelly. She's very helpful. The room was clean, the location is near metro.
