Co-living LA | Shared rooms Los Angeles

Co-living spaces are becoming increasingly popular across the world, especially in cities like New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. With co-living, people of all ages can live together and share common spaces such as kitchens, living rooms, and even bathrooms. But if you're moving to a co-living space, you'll want to make sure that you're doing everything right to avoid any potential conflicts and to make the transition to your new home easier.

What is a co-living?

Co-living, or co-living spaces, have many similarities to other type of apartment. However, they differ greatly in their shared living spaces, their food, and in their rules, regulations, and amenities. Co-living isn't really a specific type of apartment — it's a movement in itself. Some people call it "micro-living" Others call it "startup-style" living, "digital nomad" lifestyle, "hacker houses", "share economy", "smart apartment", and "homebases." With the rise of co-living spaces, a new concept of living has gained momentum, especially among the young, tech-savvy generations. Co-living spaces aren't just for students anymore. But, as they're commonly marketed, co-living is more than just a move away from college.

For example, if you're sharing a room with a complete stranger you can expect a roommate to contribute to maintaining the space. Each co-living has their own rules and regulations. Some are incredibly relaxed, while others are intense. For example, some co-living spaces require that residents get along with each other, so if you're moving into a co-living space in LA you might want to consider getting along with your roommate. And some co-living spaces are extremely serious and strict.

Benefits of a co-living

With a co-living, you're not just renting a room, you're living in an apartment with other people, and therefore you get a variety of shared benefits.

Lower rent

This is especially great if you're moving to a place like New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco where the cost of rent is very expensive and the places are not furnished.This is especially great if you're moving to a place like New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco where the cost of rent is very expensive and the places are not furnished.

Easier move-in

If you're not used to sharing with other people, moving into a co-living space is much easier than living in your own apartment. Can you live with other people? If you're moving to a co-living, you may meet other people in the apartment.

Additional amenities

A lot of co-livings have co-working zones, photo-studios, sport equipment and more. This will help you move towards your goal and grow.

How to find the right co-living space for you

As you move into a co-living space, make sure to take the following steps to ensure the co-living space is a good fit for your needs: Determine what type of lifestyle you are seeking and determine if the co-living space is a good fit for you. Ensure you know the regulations of the area. Not all co-living spaces are created equal.

Although you may have the option to choose between a luxury co-living or a more affordable one, it is important to make sure you know what you're getting into before signing a lease. It's also worth exploring other options before signing a lease. For example, you may be able to stay with family or friends while you're looking for your own apartment. Learn more about different types of co-living by reading through our blog, "Co-Living: Know Before You Co-Live.

What should you bring when you move to a co-living space?

Co-living spaces often require some special items that can't be found at a standard apartment or even a hotel room. This includes things like bedding and toiletries for guests. Packing essentials You'll also want to pack any important personal items that you're bringing into your new co-living space, such as medications and any other medical items. What can you eat at a co-living space? With many co-living spaces offering communal dining and even local restaurants, there's a wide variety of food available.

Managing your belongings

Co-living is similar to sharing an apartment in that you share the common areas, as well as, have the ability to share the responsibilities. However, there is something to be said for being able to manage your own possessions, especially if they're already in storage and you don't necessarily need them all at once. While a co-living space may be similar to a shared apartment, you can still make your space your own. By doing this, you can enjoy a much more minimalist lifestyle, making for a much calmer environment to live in.

With this guide in hand, you'll be ready to make the transition to your new home – in style!

Rules for a co-living newbie

Hi there! You have just moved to a co-living, and have no idea what to do next? Let me help!

1. Go on a tour of the house. While having a tour, you will meet a few other tenants, get to know the people around you. Moreover, you will be able to get to know the perks of the house that you live in.

For example, here at Sota, we have a photo studio, community computers, a podcast room, and so much more available free of charge. You can find more information here: https://gosota.com/value

2. Making new friends. Start a little conversation, for example, during breakfast. Ask about the places to eat, where to take cool pictures or where to go on the weekends. This will help you to get to know the people around you, maybe find something in common, and go exploring the city together.

Co-livings usually have such a different variety of people. You never know where you will find your next business partner, the person who will help you with your website, a model for your photoshoot, or maybe even your partner in crime. Just kidding, please don't. You can see what people can help you with at Sota: https://gosota.com/value

3. Refrigerator space. If you don't want your food to be eaten by someone else, always use containers to separate everything from others. If there are no personal boxes, try to keep all your food in bags with your name on them. This way you will not feel like Ross.

4. Shower wars. Shower space is usually pretty limited, so be kind and don't spend a lot of time in it, especially in the morning. We all want to smell fresh and feel confident throughout the day.

5. Bulletin board. Find a bulletin board as there may be a lot of useful information like ads of people looking for business partners for their new project, nearest restaurants discount, interesting events, or side gig opportunities. Moreover, you can place your ad looking for people with the same hobbies that you have, and you'll have a new buddy by your side.

6. Respect. You should always remember that you live in a big household, everyone has their own habits. Sometimes we can bother people with them. It is ok if you will have to change something about your behavior as well as it is ok for someone to change.

7. Headphones time. When you live with other people in the same room it is very annoying when everyone can hear what you are watching on Instagram or YouTube. Use headphones, and feel free to ask others to put them on when they are disturbing you.

8. Make your bed every morning. According to our statistics, people who make their bed in the morning are way more organized and use their time more effectively. Making your bed is the first step of your day, and it is your first victory of the day. As they say, if you want to change the world, start by making your bed.

9. Alarm clock. The worst thing in the world is someone's alarm clock waking you up early in the morning. Set your phone to Vibro, put it under your pillow, and turn it off as soon as you wake up. The same goes for the time you go in the shower. Take your phone with you so it doesn't bother anyone in case it starts ringing.

10. Cloth mountains. Try to put all of your cloth on the shelves and wardrobe that you have. If you leave the cloth around the room it will get easy to confuse it with other roommates. Moreover, if there are piles of cloth on the ground, the cleaning lady will stop cleaning around them, and the whole room will look like such a mess.

11. Laundry day. TThe smell can get anyone. Try to wash your bedding every 7–14 days, and your cloth every 2–3 days. Use the laundry detergent to smell like spring, alps, or like the ocean.

12. Washing-up. Wash your dishes right away! Clean it while you are cooking, after you eat, etc. Don't collect the dirty dishes in the sink. It doesn't make anyone's life easier or happier.

13. Arguing. Remember, you live with these people. When we are mad, we can say a lot of nasty things that we don't actually mean. When it is someone close, we can apologize, and forget. However, when it is someone else, the resentment will stay for a lot longer. Try to work all of the arguments out by having a simple conversation with no screaming and no insults.

14.Out of your comfort zone. Co-living is really fun, but it can be a little tough at first. You meet new rules, new people, and it can be terrifying. It is normal to have some time to adjust. As a result, you will have such a great experience!

15. Live a happy life. In general, all of these rules are very easy to follow. Do whatever you want others to do for you, and be polite. But most importantly never ever ever eat other people's food!!!

Here at Sota, we welcome everyone. If you are new to co-living, we will help you to adjust, and feel like you are at home. Your new home.

Сhoose the right co-living space in LA

Let's start with the definition of a co-living. Co-living is a shared housing for people with shared intentions. It is a great way to make new friends, get to know the culture of the city, explore the areas... and of course to save money.

Your whole co-living experience depends on the place you choose, that's why it is so important to take this part seriously. The basic principle of the search is to set so many conditions that the whole search is reduced to 2-3 locations. Let's get started!

The Budget

First, you need to figure out the budget. You should determine what price range you can afford. The next step is to find locations in Los Angeles or another city available in your price range. When your search is narrowed, you can find the place that suits you.

The Location

When finding a place to live, you should consider your intentions. What is more important for you? Your job, your friends, or maybe the ocean? Take your time imagining your daily routine. Will you start with sports and jogging, a nice breakfast at a local restaurant, or a walk to a market for some fresh fruits? Go on Google maps, explore the streets of the city. This will help you decide.

The Availability

You may fall in love with the place, but they won't have any available spots left. It is always good to give a quick call and see if it's a fit.

The Community

There are times when the house doesn't look very cool, however, the community of people is so awesome there.

Usually, the ones who live in a co-living are those who are on the way to their dreams or have already achieved them. You never know who is sitting next to you. A famous actor from Malaysia lived with me in a co-living once. He just wanted to get to know people better and studied here at an acting school.

Therefore, the people around you is what really matters. The community can help you create a project, start a music group, or help you with your portfolio. The community always has more resources than you alone.

The goods

There are a lot of co-livings that offer different goods that will help you along with your career. We at Sota co-living, have a co-working area, a photo studio, sports equipment, podcast equipment, a lot of cool blogger stuff, furniture and more (vary by location and are fully and completely at discretion of the management). We always want to help our tenants. For example, if you need to work on your CV, we have a specialist who will help you. If you need to work on your website or logo for a new project, we got your back! If you are interested Apply now at gosota.com

To sum up, when looking for a co-living, find a place that will make you happy. Surround yourself with positive energy and positive people.

"Fresh Start" philosophy behind Sota co-living

The world is changing every day. It changes so fast that there are no paths that you can take right now and be 100% that you will follow them in the next decade, and I'm not even talking about the rest of your life. The world is changing so rapidly that sometimes you just need to take a break, you need a fresh start.

A Fresh start is something we didn't know before, but we will need it in the future. It's a moment in your life when you feel not in your place, a moment when you want to start all over again. Reasons can be different — job stopped giving you joy, you lost a close one, you cannot find a spot where you would fit in the current city. You need to start all over again: meet new people, understand what do you need, what do you want to achieve in these circumstances. Maybe learn something, maybe teach someone.

Being in this state of mind for a long time, you start realizing that all of those failures that you had are actually a path to a brighter future. If you don't fall, you don't win.

Rent a room in los angeles with SOTA

We know this because as the founders of SOTA coliving we have been in this situation before. We have just moved to Los Angeles without any friends and family, no one was there to support us. Huge rent prices, no short term leases, no connections, no cars, expensive furniture. Everything that we did, resulted in stress.

That's why we came up with SOTA. We took all of our experience, everything positive we saw in coliving, and decided to create special accommodations for a Fresh Start in Los Angeles. We built space with a safe community that supports you on your way, helps you with the equipment for your job, with a tip from your roommate, with connections. We wanted it to be affordable, so you can save some money for your dream, make friends, study, create a project, and not worry about a thing. It doesn't matter if you are a freshman or a successful entrepreneur, because everyone needs those things.

Every time you think that you need a fresh start, SOTA is right there to help you. Maybe, you've got a new startup idea, and you just need to cut your expenses to achieve it. You can always rely on affordable housing. You can spend here a month or a year, and save enough money to start your own project, invest in yourself, or make a trip to another country. SOTA co-living is right there to help you out.

A Fresh start is something that everyone needs in life. SOTA co-living is a part of the future that will help you reload and get to where you want.

However, if you are not ready to move yet, but you relate to our philosophy, here are 5 things you can do to begin your Fresh start:

Start meditating, at least 1 minute a day

Start distracting yourself from the world around you and spend this 1 minute in the world with your future self, in a world where you make new plans, forget about the present, and live a full life, achieving your dreams. Meditation will help discard everything unnecessary and see the way to a new future.

Take care of your health

Without health, it is difficult to achieve something, to become a successful actor, to write a hit, anything. Start with a quick workout and a glass of lemon water.

Subscribe to people who inspire you on social media

This way you will learn something new from them and get your motivation.

Start taking a new class or learn a new language

Small victories feed us, so it is very important to have small achievements every day. Learning a language or a new topic will fill your daily life with these victories and the routine will be less unpleasant.

Plan your project

Plan a small project to clean the street. Maybe you have had some ideas for a long time, plan to make a part of that project, and implement it in the next 3 months. This will give a lot of strength and inspiration for future projects, as well as help you find like-minded people who will support you.

Do these 5 things and your life will start to change in 30 days.
