Finding a Cheap Apartment in Downtown Los Angeles

Downtown Los Angeles is a diverse and vibrant community with an arts district and historic center. It is also home to the University of Southern California, or USC, making it an ideal spot to live if you're a student. With Staples Center close by, you can catch a Lakers or Clippers game with friends during basketball season. You might even run into a famous icon like Jack Nicholson.

The South Central section is particularly convenient to USC. It is also one of the more affordable neighborhoods in the area, with prices in the $900 range. Congress North, Pico-Union and Westlake are also viable options if you're looking to save some bucks. While exact prices vary depending on your particular location, the average prices typically range from $900 to $1200 per month.

Of course, you'll want to stick to one-bedroom or studio apartments for rent. This will not only help you find a cheap apartment, but it will also keep your utility costs down. Deciding between a one-bedroom or studio apartment can be tricky. Some helpful reading to help you make a decision in this regard might be found at this blog post from Rent.com.

What to Look for in Cheap Apartments in Downtown Los Angeles

When looking for cheap apartments for rent, you may notice fewer amenities than the pricier options. It's important to make sure your basic needs, such as heating and air conditioning, are met. While you may not have access to features such as pools, Los Angeles is known for its beautiful beaches and ideal temperatures throughout the year, so you can take a dip in the Pacific whenever you like.

Expect your space to be rather small, between 600 and 1100 square feet for a studio or one-bedroom apartment. Your apartment will include a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living area.
