I am lending a room of my 2-bedroom apartment for cheap, especially when you consider that:
ALL UTILITIES ARE INCLUDED
THERE IS A FREE GARAGE FOR YOUR CAR
Or in case you don't have a car, there is a bus stop right in front of my apartment, from where you can get virtually anywhere you want, including Downtown LA, USC, and GCC.
In any case, it is conveniently located, so you can get to USC in 15-20 minutes by car, or in about an hour by bus. You can also get to Glendale Community College (GCC) in 5 minutes by car, or 7-8 minutes by bus. Americana shopping center is about 7 minutes away by car. Downtown LA is less than half an hour away. All the other major areas are pretty close by too.
Neighborhood is quiet and neighbors are quiet too. Never had any problem with anyone. Loud music is virtually unheard of here. It is also safe and people are friendly too. Some of the reasons why I have lived here for past 7 years.
Kitchen has all the basic necessities: microwave oven, electric teapot, toaster, stove, refrigerator, and of course the good old sink. So in case you like to cook, you're welcome to.
The most important point to remember is that the people who have rented from me have stayed for long periods of time: a
year and a half, six months, and eight months. So I prefer long-term. But short-term is also fine: the last guy who stayed here has booked it for month and a half. The minimum stay is 1 month.
Thus, considering all of the above, 650$ a month
for a room in this location is really cheap and you should hurry up before someone else has rented this room out.
The room was nice and quiet with a LARGE comfy bed and one window to the street and one to the back. No loud music or anything from either host Roman or the neighbors in the area, also no loud traffic or kids playing (wouldn't have minded the latter!) Washer and Dryer were easily accessible and easy to use. Also there is a small secluded area were you can dry your cloth in the sun, so really no need to use the dryer.
Roman is a pleasant host, who didn't disturb the privacy of my room and we had some nice conversations too and all in all i felt pretty welcomed here and would rent the room again :)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
