Walk through first-class farmers' markets, contemplate art at the LACMA, and marvel at your central location between the Hollywood stars and Downtown's soaring skyscrapers. Mid-Wilshire's name says it all—it's mostly in the middle of everything.

Other Things to Note
Availability changes frequently, so if we are full for your selected dates check back weekly, space may open up. And of course check our other listings, this room may be booked but others available (Airbnb lists by room, not 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.
I requested to book a room only 1 day before my check in date as my trip to L.A. was largely unplanned but Kelly was quick to respond and accept my request. I couldn't check in at 3pm so Kelly allowed me to check in later at 9pm. The room was spacious and well maintained.
The neighbourhood is close to Koreatown and I really enjoyed having dinner there.
The host was very accommodating. Residence was bare-bones, but the location and the price point make this a great value. Would book again.
My sister and me stayed for 3 days. We had a great time. The apartment is clean and nice. It is very close to the subway, we were in Hollywood in just 10 minutes! Kelly was very nice and helpful. I definitely recommend her place!
Private parking lot was very helpful and secure. lots of gates and locks made building feel lots safer.
Llamamos a Kelly cuando llegamos e inmediatamente apareció para darnos las llaves. Nos enseño la casa y nos invitó a usar lo que necesitaramos. La situación de la casa era bastante buena, cerca de muchos puntos de interés en coche. Tiene una cocina grande, como en la foto, y la convivencia con el resto de huespedes fue buena. Parking trasero para el coche y lavadora y secadora.
As stated in other posts, it's very like a hostel. But the sheets are clean, the beds are comfy and having 2 bathrooms was really helpful. We were just there a night as we were there for a couple St. Patrick's Day events and it was perfect. In addition, we had 2 cars and were able to both park in the very safe, awesome private parking lot which was MAJORLY helpful. Would stay here again!
