          This is a great value-for-money place to stay. It's not super amazing, the bathrooms are small, there's no climate control, etc, it's basically like the best hostel you've ever stayed at- if you don't expect anything more, you won't be disappointed.

          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.
