LOCATION: Live in the heart of Little Tokyo, in downtown Los Angeles. Located on First and Hewitt, the Sogo Hotel is only two blocks from the Little Tokyo Gold Line metro stop and on the same block as the downtown Dash A line. Major freeways are very close.

TRANSPORTATION: From the Gold Line you can explore the rest of Los Angeles City, and from the Dash A you can explore downtown. Little Tokyo is the most vibrant area of downtown Los Angeles, with authentic Japanese eateries, markets, and stores. The Arts District is nearby as well, with plenty of cafes, art galleries, and street art to view.

ROOM DESCRIPTION: Private rooms are for one individual, have locks on doors, and come with a sink. Kitchen, toilet, shower rooms are shared, and professionally cleaned each day. This is a dorm-style atmosphere with great long-term tenants, international travelers, and a friendly on-site manager. Free wi-fi is available in the living room and dining area. Please bring your own towel. This room is similar to the others I have listed, that's why I am just using the same photo. For views of the premises look at the other properties.

PARKING: Free street parking is available nearby (but it goes quickly), otherwise it is $4.00/day at the meters or $4.00/day at the nearby lot. Metered spots are enforced from 6 am - 4 pm and they also cost $4.00 per day.

GETTING THERE: From LAX take the FlyAway bus ($7.00 one way) to Union Station, then take the Gold Line to the Little Tokyo stop. The building is two short blocks away.

WEEKEND ARRIVAL: Please keep in mind that if you are arriving on a Saturday or Sunday the manager may not be there in person to let you in, but there is a lockbox from which you retrieve your keys.

CHECKING IN: Check-in is at 3 pm, Check-out is at 12 noon. Once your reservation is accepted you will receive a phone number for the on-site manager, Alex (different from the one currently listed). Please contact him immediately to discuss check-in details. Please do not wait until the last minute to call. Thank you!

SECURITY DEPOSIT: Because most of our tenants are long-term guests, our security deposit is the equivalent of one month's rent. The deposit is held by Airbnb through your credit card and they will return it to you after your stay. We have had a couple hundred individual reservations with our building and have only had to make deductions for damages a couple of times. If you are a responsible guest, you should have no worries.

ADDITIONAL GUESTS: Additional guests are not allowed without prior notification and prior permission given by the host. Unless agreed to otherwise, any additional guests will be charged an additional $10 per night. If an additional guest is brought without prior permission, the host reserves the right to charge an additional $10 per night for the duration of the entire reservation. Thank you in advance for not bringing overnight guests without prior permission.

  • I've been renting a room for the last 6 months and I just renewed for another 6 months mostly because it's cheap and in a central location.

    Cleanliness:
    My room has hardwood floors and it was dusty/dirty moving in but it's an old building so it's to be expected. Bathrooms are again old, occasionally you'll see shit stains and toilet-paper stuck on the seats but they are cleaned I believe daily to sanitary standards. Showers are usually clean but you'll probably see another person's hair... bring flip-flops or shower-sandals for hygienic reasons. Kitchen is old as well and the ventilation sucks but you can microwave shit, there's a stove, and a toaster oven - fridge is tight with limited space.

    Occasional fruit fly will appear if you eat a banana in your room and leave the window open.

    Safety:
    You are downtown and relatively close to skid-row yet in sort of the Arts District area so you should always be aware but it's somewhat safe. The worst thing to happen to me was just recently in which my bicycle wheels, handlebar, and stem were stolen from my bicycle which was locked just outside the building (the frame was essentially left with my lock as I didn't lock my wheels). I park my motorcycle on the street and so far nobody has fucked with it to my knowledge.

    Noise:
    There's the train the runs just across the street so that can be annoying as the windows are paper thin in terms of letting noise in.

    Weather:
    It can get pretty warm mid-day if you are facing the sun but at night it cools down to comfortable-sleeping levels.

    Price:
    Cheap, in term's of Yelp it would be a "$". ($$$$$ = would be the priciest)
