    Excellent location, beautiful place, perfect staff, little bit better than your usual hostel. Rooms are clean. Good location for buses and metro. Downtown LA is now perfectly safe and welcoming. Next door, there's a fine foods organic restaurant (very cheap). 👍

    Downtown
    Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
    buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
    warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
    cultures here with a growing influx of business
    professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
    Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
    bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
    Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
