My stay at Podshare was unforgettable!! My fiancé and I stayed for 6 nights, and we couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the location was clean, the other residents were respectful and welcoming, and the entire property is so peaceful and secluded from the outside world. When we arrived, we were checked in by Alex. She gave us a tour, and even allowed us to check in early (our flight was ahead of schedule). We dropped off our luggage and immediately went to explore the city. I’ll be honest, I was hesitant to leave my stuff in the provided storage area underneath the pod because it’s pretty visible to everyone. We were offered a locker for our valuables but we only brought clothes and toiletries so it seemed unnecessary. Much to my surprise, no one disturbed any of our things the entire time we were there! The staff is extremely watchful and the other guests were all very respectful. Plus, there are cameras everywhere! Quiet hours were from 10 PM to 10 AM, and I didn’t expect people to be as respectful as they were. The entire time we stayed, I slept like a baby! The bed was super comfortable. There were several times I needed something I had forgotten or wasn’t able to bring on the plane, and the other guests & staff were always happy to help! I was given toothpaste, a charger, cigarettes, lighters, and food. Everyone there seemed to be dedicated to the idea of “co-living”

I start by saying that Claire is super friendly and outstanding, but I did not like the place for a single night is fine, but still too much noise can not rest, I think it requires more order and cleanliness, the truth is I do not recommend it but still for the price it fits santa monica is too expensive so decide your budget well
