Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place all things considered. No AC and shared bathrooms, but it's close to Downtown, offers parking, and includes a few handy toiletries, coffee, tea, etc. For the price, it's the absolute best value this side of town.

  • The room was really clean, the neighbourhood was safe and it was really close to the subway. I had a really nice stay. The property manager was really nice and convenient. She answer our question and help me. i highly recommend this place.
    Thank you so much.

    Avis au Français : Si vous restez à Los Angeles, la maison de Ryan est parfaite. Vraiment proche du métro, et vous pouvez aller partout. Je le conseil vivement.

  • We were very happy with our choice! My friend and were visiting LA for a week for the E3 conference and wanted to find a place both convenient and budget friendly. This proved a perfect combination.

    The room was spacious enough for both of us, with a roomy walk-in closet, a small desk, and twin beds. With no luxury whatsoever, we didn't lack anything either, and the room, bathrooms and kitchen were perfectly clean and orderly. We had breakfast there every morning, which was nicer than having to go to some cafe. Other guests were polite and quiet.

    We did not interact with Ryan apart from messages, but Kelly stepped up as the property managed and helped us during check in. She was very nice and made herself available for help, which we didn't really need much of since everything ran smoothly and we had all the information we needed.

    Regarding the location, the area was convenient for us (around 15 min drive to the Convention Center) and I'd say normal and safe; we didn't have or see any trouble during our comings and goings. Nearby streets seemed pretty quiet, and having our own parking spot to park the car every night was a super convenient plus.

    WiFi was perfectly fine and we never had any hiccups.

    The instructions sent by the host went extremely into detail regarding ways of transportation and tips for visitors, so extra points for being so thoughtful and helpful!

    All in all, we are very happy with our choice. It proved way cheaper than most other options we had found here and it didn't lack anything, so we would definitely recommend.

  • Ryan (the host) and Kelly (the property manager) are great!! They are always very responsive to my needs. This is my 2nd time staying here and I hope to stay here again in the future. What you see on airbnb is what you get. The neighborhood is fine by me and it's an added bonus when there's parking on the premises behind a locked gate.

  • The location and price of this place was great. The room was big with two twin beds. My friend and I stayed for two nights. Though, the place could use a deep scrub and there never seemed to be toilet paper in the bathrooms. There is a number and house manager that you can call, but our calls were never returned. So that was a bummer. Despite this, I would consider staying here again. Location is central to a lot of things and price is very reasonable. It was very easy to check-in and check-out.

  • Quite good location but i will say bad for the satification. The blanket, toilet, house was dirty. Me and my boyfriend started to rub when we get back to our room. I dont recomment to stay at here. If you want a find cheap one to stay, this is good but if you want some clean place, find another one

  • Amazing value in this adorable dormitory-style experience. The house is in the middle of everything, so we got to see a lot more of LA than we anticipated. There's also a great spirit of camaraderie that the house creates; we were only there 48 hours but made great connections with the other guests on our floor. We'll stay here again!

    Response from Ryan:

    Thank you for the kind review! Note to guests: we do have toiletries available at no charge… there should be some there, if not ask us…. we have them in the storage closet! Towels too!

  • Great location right in between downtown and Hollywood! All rooms had their own lock and key which was great for privacy. Hostel-like environment was different than what we are used to (this was our first AirBnB), but it was great because we met a few nice people (and a beautiful kitten) who were staying there as well. The private lot in the back was great. Would definitely look into staying here again when we're back! Thank you!
