STAY, you are my lifesaver.
i desperately needed to find a place to crash for one night while my house in LA got a quick fix. STAY was, BY FAR, the most affordable place in the area ($45 for private room, shared bath/$25 for shared room, shared bath).
being a frequenter of hostels while travelling, i knew what to expect from a hostel. but STAY definitely had european & south american hostels beat when it came to decor and cleanliness. with its flat screen tv and funky, light-up flower artwork, my private twin-bed room had a really trendy, boutiquey feel to it.
i'm a stickler for clean sheets, and STAY hit it on the dot. also, a plus for the private sink in the room. shared toilet and shower were a bit cramped, but you're not spending that much time in there anyway, right? sharing the cecil hotel elevator was no biggie. i checked in pretty late, and there were no shady characters to be found. for a friday night, it was quiet and i had no trouble getting a good night's sleep.
just one precaution: once the sun goes down, i would be a tad weary about schlepping around the neighborhood. particularly if you're a woman by yourself...just don't (i'm a woman btw). otherwise, downtown LA is really starting to clean up its act, and in daylight conditions, the area is a good starting point to see LA sights & attractions. if you're planning to bring a car, you may encounter difficulty in finding overnight street parking. expect to hand over a hefty $30something for overnight parking in a parking lot next to the hostel.
