The Space

Due to demand, we only respond to fully verified guests who provide a clear profile photo, full name, age, name of current employer and/or school, and descriptive purpose of visit. Thank you for your understanding.

Live in in the heart of Little Tokyo and the Arts District with other international travelers and visitors! Clean, convenient, and inexpensive. You won't find a better deal in LA.

UNFURNISHED dorm room available for minimum four days, long term stays encouraged. You will need to arrange your own bedding. Rooms come with closet and sink only. Fully furnished rooms are also available, please see our other listings.

LENGTH OF STAY - We generally accept reservations of 30 days maximum length. If you wish to reserve for a longer period you may discuss that with the apartment manager after you check in for your initial stay.

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. 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. Thank you for not requesting additional photos of the rooms.

INTERNET: Free wi-fi is available in the living room and dining area, but due to usage it can be VERY slow. If you rely upon wi-fi for work you should arrange your own wireless modem or you can go to starbucks nearby.

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 who stay past 10 pm will be charged an additional $10 per night. If an additional guest is brought without prior permission and paid for in advance, you may lose your security deposit or have your reservation cancelled. Thank you in advance for not bringing overnight guests without prior permission.

Guest Access

Shared bathrooms are cleaned daily, as is the shared kitchen. Laundry facilities are on site. We have a communal, international atmosphere.

Interaction with Guests

Alex is the on-site apartment manager and can answer all of your questions.

The Neighborhood

  • Easy, enjoyable stay. The room was clean, the building was quiet, and coordinating with the host to check in/out was easy. This is a great part of LA (Little Tokyo, Arts District) in which to stay, close to public transit, excellent food and beer. If you are cool with sleeping on the floor and don't require much from your room, rocking it unfurnished at the Little Tokyo Dorm is the way to go!

  • The Sogo building is a bit rundown, still the basic amenities are covered, clean bathrooms, hot water, gas, electricity. On the downside wi-fi is unreliable to say the least and the metro tracks are less than a block away so you'll hear it, nothing you can't get used to. It is located in a nice residential area with lots of great spots nearby in little tokyo and the arts district including cafes, bars, amazing asian cuisine and the japanese plaza making this a good cheap housing option for short term.

  • Great place, great manager(Alex was very helpful and nice) and of course great price. The only thing people need to be aware of is that the wifi is only in the living room area and kitchen, I didn't need internet when I was there so it did not bother me. Overall great experience.
