Interning or moving to Hollywood/Los Angeles? Convenient to public transportation, this is the perfect housing alternative for international students and interns in any of the cities we service.
We offer communal living and lots of interaction. Duo Housing is designed to encourage interaction among our guests as much as possible. Our rooms are shared, as are the bathroom facilities, kitchens, and living rooms.
Room rates include free bed linens and towels and free daily maid service. Bring a lock because we also have free lockable lockers!
The living room (or social room) has a huge 42' flat-screen TV, all the premium cable TV channels, a DVD player and a phone to call anywhere in the continental US.
Our friendly staff are on duty 24 hours a day to help you with anything you might need, whether it's directions or restaurant suggestions. This means check-in is available 24/7, there's no lockout and there's always security on the property!
We also have free Wi-Fi and Internet with free computers, free use of our Nintendo Wii, a separate quiet study area and tons of free house events.
Our kitchen has free utensils and free coffee and tea.
And of course...free meeting new friends! :) The big city is intimidating to new guests, but you can plan on making some great new friends here. Many of our guests end up becoming friends and getting apartments together!
What makes us different? The biggest difference is our hostels were started by people just like you and run by people with needs just like yours! So instead of coming home from school or your internship to an impersonal warehouse of beds, you feel like you are coming home - you're staying with people who fast become your friends; you cook with people from all over the world, you get to learn and experience the city first-hand with friends!
