The orange -and-white Victorian-style building at 125 S. Boyle Street does not look particularly space-age. But the interior of the rambling house is now home to MoonPad LA, a seven-bedroom hostel “created to promote the important message of communal living on the Moon and intergalactic space travel,”according to the MoonPad listing on Hostels. com.
MoonPad, which is located a short walk south of the Mariachi Plaza Gold Line Station, is promoted as a place “where artists can stay in a shared loft living space for a very low cost.” Guests overnight in “cocoons” (aka beds), some of which have “white canopies that we call TeePees – A cocoon is where the caterpillar becomes a Butterfly!” There are pizza nights, sushi lessons and walks to the farmers’ market.
All this is your for rates starting at about $19 a night.
