Hello folks,

So I am most likely coming to LA (again) for 2 months in the summer. I am in my early 20s and have recently graduated from a university in London.

I'm looking for accommodation for June-August 2011. I would not mind renting a room in a family house, provided that the family is sane, nice, normal (is that even possible in LA? JK!), fun and honest.

If you happen to know of a studio that's going to be available in the summer, please feel free to direct message me. My budget is $1.5k/month.

Where would I want to stay? I haven't decided yet. Somewhere nice and quiet? I don't mind living in a "senior citizen" area. In fact, I get along with older people more than kids my age. I'm not into night clubs, drinking partying etc. you see.

P.S. I know I misspelled 'accommodation' in the title

EDIT: I just realized I need to be near USC as I will be attending one of their summer classes. Please consider this in your replies. Thanks.

Does SC offer summer housing? Just a thought.

Good idea. I've read on these forums that Downtown LA isn't the best place to be, though. (BTW I got lost somewhere near-ish Koreatown during my visit, it was around 7PM so quite dark, I was alone (I'm female) I was by foot but yet somehow I managed to find my way back safe so maybe all these horror stories are told by people who have never set a foot in those areas.

DTLA isn't terrible, but its not the safest area in the "city". The area around USC is also not fantastic.

If the ultimate goal is to take classes at USC, I would recommend staying on campus, and taking advantages of all the resources that come with.

Yes but one of the classes I'm taking is "internship in film & tv", which means I'll be interning for a production company/ studio and most of them are located in Burbank/Beverly Hills etc.
