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 (email hidden), 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.

This place is just right for someone who won't be staying in the room much during their stay. It's in a good area with great restaurants and chill bars nearby, but the building itself is really old and feels old. Showers and restrooms are cleaned daily. WiFi is generally unreliable, so I always had to walk to a cafe with free WiFi. I'd recommend SOGO If all you need is a place to sleep.
I needed temporary housing while I was in between apartments, and SOGO had exactly what I needed--cheap, unfurnished rooms in a decent area. It's a 5 minute walk from so many good restaurants in Little Tokyo. The amenities aren't what you get at hotels, motels, or even hostels, but you get what you paid for: a place to sleep. I had problems with the WiFi throughout my stay, so if that's on your must-have, I wouldn't come here. If you're looking for cheap housing in a good location, this is it.
