Love to travel and eat!
Very clean room, shared bathroom, quite and nice!
I stayed her for 10 months and loved it. The location is great, there is plenty of nearby attractions. The other folks in the building were friendly and the manager Alex was a great help in navigating the surrounding neighborhood.
I am a busy man that travels much and given the location of this residence it is more then a bargain.
Upon my next visit to LA I plan on staying here again!
Quiet, clean, cheap. Run by nice guys. I felt safe there, as a woman staying alone. I would stay here again.
I will probably stay here again. Convenient location for Little Tokyo and 'Arts District'. It has the feeling of an honest flop-house from the pen of Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett, or a grown-up art school dormitory.
It was surprisingly quiet, with the pleasant hum and clatter of other residents on the weekend morning. Don't expect luxury or amenities, bring your own towel. The kitchen utensils appear to be a random selection left behind by past residents, but if you just want to boil water or make toast you'll be fine. The room was clean and adequately furnished. The common areas were clean enough. For me, no AC is a plus --I'd rather open the window and not listen to the buzz of machines all night...
Alex, the off-site manager was friendly and helpful. Altogether, a good experience.
The place was very near to the metro and downtown! Also the place was quite peaceful and good to sleep at night...I didn't need more than that !
It was pretty chill. Room was great, I didn't need much. The toilet and bathroom are separate but clean. It's good for a place to sleep at night.
The host Jefferson Fc responded pretty quickly on my first few emails (just about questions), then responded fast in time to my booking request, 2 nights (less than 24 hrs.).
He even suggested me to try out the place first before possibly renting for a longer term. Thank you Jefferson. His on-site manager, Alex, is super too, very friendly and helpful. Thank you too, Alex. This location is about less than 5-minute walk to
subway Gold Line - East LA bound (Little Toyko stop). For Gold Line - Pasadena bound, it is one stop from Little Toyko to Union Station where you can transfer to many different buses,subways,metrolink & Amtrak. The surrounding is pretty safe and clean. Less than 10-minute walk to Japanese Village Plaze where many eateries are there and a Japanese small supermarket there too.
The residence itself, with this price, is good for budget minders and those just looking for sleep staying. Dorm, basic style and restrm & bathrm clean enough (with this aged building). WiFi is on and off. The room #212 I stayed, is clean enough although the sheets/comfortables/pillows may looked aged. (then, again, please bear in mind, this is a really "budget" place). Thank you Jefferson for providing this budget (website hidden) wishes to you, your staff and all the travelers out there.
The manager Alex was very helpful!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Sogo Residences provided exactly what I needed, a room to sleep in and bathroom to bathe. The barebones nature of the place pushes you out to explore LA, which is what I needed and wanted. I recommend it to anyone who is staying in LA and just needs to rest their head at night.
Good location, close to metro little-tokyo station.
Room and restroom clean.
Alex is a nice guy.
Jay and his wife were very quiet, respectful and clean. Highly recommended.
