10 mins away from staples center. Very close to USC. This can be a good choice for travelers planning for visit LA for 2-3 days. With the new USC village, you have many food options and a nice place to hangout. You can find Trader's Joe, Target and Star Bucks too.
The neighborhood is mostly a student area.
Getting around downtown in very easy. There is a Dash bus service, which cost you 50 cents to commute to LA Downtown.
