What is co-living?


How much is rent?

The rent in our first building in Hollywood starts at $1,788 and averages $2,369, depending on the unit. These prices are inclusive of the per-person monthly community fee, which is part of the rent, and covers utilities, WiFi, furniture, dinner every Sunday, and events.

One month's rent on approved credit. We also give residents the option to purchase security deposit insurance through Jetty instead, which is significantly less money up front (typically 20% of the security deposit amount) but is non-refundable.


How do I pay?

- Direct deposit (online, option for automatic billing)

- Credit card (3.5% fee, online, option for automatic billing)

1st of each month


What is due upon signing my lease?

No, all shared suites have extensive soundproofing between bedrooms.


Does the furniture in my room include a TV?

No. We didn't put TVs in the bedrooms by default because there is a lot of evidence that it's not good for our sleep, love lives, or general happiness. However, all bedroom walls are ready for a TV to be installed. We're happy to mount your TV for a nominal price.


How many people to a bedroom?

Most of our bedrooms are designed for one adult. Some bedrooms are designed for two adults, with extra closet space and a bed that is easy to get into from both sides. Children don't count toward those limits.
