Mariana has a beautiful place in a quiet neighborhood with a great view of the city. It is close to so many things but feels tucked away. She was very responsive and helpful. A great place to stay in Northeast Los Angeles!

This place was fantastic. It offered a great view, and it was a great place to stay for someone like me. I was out a lot at concerts, and it was an extremely comfortable place to stay. It's very easy to feel like you're at home. I would definitely recommend this place for any and everyone!

First time using AirBNB and traveling to LA and I was so nervous about it. Luckily the check in and out was super easy. Mariana definitely gives you your privacy and It didn't even feel like we were in anyone's home. The studio is exactly as it appears in the pictures. It is secluded and up on a hill but it's close to everything. Don't bring large luggages because you have to walk down spiral staircases. I was able to cook breakfast every morning so that was great. Hopefully the rest of my air b n b experiences are like this one.

Great place to stay, away from the loud and busy city but also still very close to anywhere you would like to go. Our host was very friendly, we met a few times. Always responsive and also allowed later check in/late check out. No complaints and the space looks just like the photos.

This is such a cool apartment! It's nestled up in the hills, so although it's only minutes away from the city, it's still in a quiet residential area. We absolutely loved staying here, and appreciate Mariana's hospitality!

We were looking for a cute, comfortable, affordable spot for our last few days in LA and Mariana's place fit the description. Her place looks exactly like it does in the pictures. She graciously let us check in early and greeted us when we arrived. Her house is located up a very windy hill with narrow streets, so if you're driving be careful. Some of our Uber/Lyft drivers were scared driving up that hill. :-) There are also quite a few stairs (which she shows in her pictures) to go down and climb up, when coming and going from her house, so I wouldn't advise bringing a big suitcase. We had a great stay at Mariana's place and would recommend it for couples and solo travellers.

This place is exactly as it looks in photos! Located in a great suburb, if you have a car it's super easy to get anywhere.. if no car, you will def need to rely on uber, or come prepared for a leg work out walking up the windy Hill road! Also a heads up if you're driving, the first time go slow around the corners as its a narrow road going up.. once you arrive though it's totally worth it! Also your legs will get a major work out getting from the road to the Airbnb as there are two sets of staircases :) The only minor downside was as it's the lower level of a house we could hear footsteps above us, and what sounded like a washing machine at times. This actually felt more like home for us so did not upset us at all, we felt secluded and in private that it was nice to hear some noise now and then :) We would definitely recommend people to stay, it's a great spot!
