It is a great memory living with Alayha and her mom Amy. They are the best hosts I have ever met! The room is cozy and comfortable. Sometimes Alayha, Amy and I have dinner together and talk about everything. They also took me to a ship ride as well as their performance. I appreciate their consideration and kindness.

I had a great stay at Alayha's apartment in Los Angeles. The apartment is really central and in a great area with lots of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops nearby. It's also really near transport links if you want to get to another part of the city. The host got in touch before I arrived, and was also there to meet me and show me where everything was, which was great. Alayha and Amy are very friendly and nice people, they are like a 2nd family to me. This place is over the top, I'm so grateful for the expirince with both of them. They made LA my home and I'll be back at there place very very soon. I was smiling every day when I was back at my host's place after long day of meetings and walking around. I highly recommend their place 3

Very welcoming to their home, small apartment, very comfortable bed. With four people staying in the apartment, you have a notification system to use the bathroom. A home that is full of life and knick·knack from around the world. Street parking for your car, which helped a lot

Response from Alayha:

I had a really nice stay. The room is cozy, with plenty of storage space, and even though its just a curtain there is plenty of privacy. The hosts are very friendly and were always looking to help out wherever they can.

Amy & Alayha are great hosts. I stayed at their place for about three months and it felt like a second home. I never had any problems with the room or them, and on the contrary my experience was really amazing. The room has plenty of storage, and hangers for about a weeks worth of clothes. Laundry is just downstairs, and there's a coin-op laundry nearby to get change if you need it. The mini-fridge in the room is great for storing food and drinks. The bed is comfortable, and the room is cool at night in summer. When the heat started to pick up, Amy bought a few box fans to help keep the apartment ventilated and it really helped for the midday heat. I can't say enough positive things. I would definitely stay there again!

I enjoyed my stay at Alayna's place, the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was good for the price and I had a lot of privacy despite the fact that is not a real room. I would recommend this place to budget travelers.
