The Stylish and Inexpensive Stay on Main in Downtown Los Angeles

What Do the Rooms Include?

Stay on Main is a hotel/hostel hybrid. Some of the rooms have bunk beds and you only rent the bed for the night, so you could be rooming with a stranger (aka new friend), and many have shared bathrooms. However, you can get private rooms with private bathrooms. Whichever type you pick, you’ll enjoy free toiletries, flat-panel TV with cable, iPod docking station, desk, hair dryer on request, iron/ironing board on request, and free Wi-Fi.

What Amenities are Available?

Most of the cheap hotels in Los Angeles do not have many of the features that Stay on Main offers. Guests here enjoy a complimentary fitness center, continental breakfast, afternoon snack, iMacs for use in the lobby, DVD player rental, Wii consoles, and use of a community kitchen — all for no extra charge. Staff is bilingual, there is an on-site coffee shop, and lockers to secure your belongings. There is a community games room as well as lobby activities like ping-pong and a movie lounge.

What are the Room Rates at Stay on Main?

Rates start at $50 per night for a hostel bed and $100 per night for a private room.

What’s There to Do Nearby?

Stay on Main is blocks away from the STAPLES Center and the Grammy Museum, as well as Downtown, the Fashion District, and the Arts District, so you will be around all the things L.A. has to offer. If you would like to explore the city further, the Pershing Square Metro Station is a few blocks away.

What’s the Bottom Line?

Stay on Main is a cheery and hip hotel in Los Angeles, perfectly located, with lots of features to help you save money and meet fellow travelers.

Rough Guide
Lodging near a dicey section of the Old Bank District, offering internet access and some rooms with DVD players, but mostly no-frills accommodation.
This boutique-style property doubles as a hotel and youth hostel geared toward modern travelers.
Thrifty travelers looking for a downtown location with easy access to popular tourist destinations should be satisfied with this hotel.
