Sawtelle Reviews

1
It's a perfect place for students as it has convenient access to all the delicious food places as well as food markets. There are plenty of stores nearby the area and students will not have to drive out far to meet their needs. Also, there is a metro nearby Sawtelle and it leads to most of the places around LA in one stop, so that is really convenient as well. During the night, there are a lot of people just walking around so it's a relatively safe neighborhood.
