Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail.

Stay Hotel (downtown LA)


A while back I stayed in this "new" hotel called, with much brevity, Stay (technically it's Stay on Main). It's new in as much as it represents the remodelations of the Cecil Hotel next door and is aimed toward snaring young foreign travellers with its bunk-bed dorm rooms, bright ugly orange color schemes, and funky fashion conscious furnishings that strive for "Cool!" more than, say, "Elegant".

 %#@! hideous decor

Stay is still in the scary area of downtown L.A. and, in fact, not far from the infamous Skid Row. A little advice for backpackers coming from the downtown Greyhound bus terminal: walk hard and stay on 7th Street; but, otherwise, try to wait for the bus. And, do know, L.A.'s bus schedule leaves a lot to be desired.
This wannabe urban hotel requires credit cards in order to book rooms. I guess just in case some drunk fool tosses the ugly ass orange hand chair out the window. I don't like places that don't like cash.
L.A.'s bus schedule leaves a lot to be desired
Stay at Stay on Main if you must. 
If you mustn't, then don't. Might I suggest USA Hostels?
