MIND YA BUSINESS
Take 5 hours of your day to do absolutely nothing, then sweat and be naked.
You deserve it!
If you're not familiar with Korean-style spas (aka jjimjilbang), they were once known as public bath rooms, but now the focus is on co-ed sweat rooms to mainly to get rid every ounce of sweat and dirt from your pores. Wi Spa provides uniform shorts and shirts, so you can blend in with the sweating mass.
The best part about this place is that there's a cafe located on the floor of all the spa rooms, so sweating and pigging out are interchangeable.
Sweating, are you? Let's eat some shaved ice!
Clay room (my fav), pink salt room, hot sauna = sweat sweat sweat
Ice room = "chill" out... ha ha ha.
Common middle area = mats are provided, you can nap, the floors are heated, free wi-fi.
Then after you release your toxins, you head over to the the bath portion (different floor). There's a hot pool, cold pool, sauna, shower stalls, then vanity mirrors where you could take your sweet time getting ready for the rest of your day. The bath portion alone is $15. Also, you have to be naked. If you're not naked, you may be mistaken for being a worker.
So um, mind ya business

One of my favorite Korean spas in LA. Open 24 hours, this spa is ridiculously affordable and has all the basic amenities (lotion, shampoo/conditioner, body wash, blowdryer, combs, towels, robes). The basement floor is for women only and has showers, jacuzzis, steam room and sauna. The floor also has a hair and nail salon with a little shop to purchase skincare items if needed. The third floor has the common room with all the different hot rooms as well as a restaurant. There is just so much to this spa, you just have to go and experience it for yourself! First timers, there are English speaking staff who can guide you through your first spa experience.

I've been to Wi Spa a couple of times with my cousin and both times we had a great experience. The first time we came, it was Family Night (Friday night) so there were little naked kids running around. That was actually a good night to visit Wi Spa as a nervous first-timer cuz seeing happy little girls getting scrubbed down by their mommies made the whole experience less awkward.
We made sure to try the steam rooms, which are REALLY, REALLY steamy. I liked it a lot bc it was super steamy and I got a good sweat from it. My cousin didn't last very long and ran back out to the cold pool. I joined her after a minute and immediately regretted it haha. It was FREEZING COLD! I could not last for more than 30 seconds in here before feeling absolutely numb!!! I don't know how those older, Korean ladies do it like it is nothing.
After we explored the lower level, we decided to shower and change into the free tshirt and shirts the front desk peoplpe loaned us. We went upstairs to the communal area where families laid on mats and read newspapers, listened to music, had conversations, or watched Korean drama/variety shows. There was a small cafe that served snacks like salted eggs and shaved ice and we made sure to get some goodies! I had a good time and will definitely be going back.

What a great place to spend quality time with a good friend! We ended up staying for 6 hours...I thought I would be there 3 hours max but there was so much to do and lots of quality time chatting away, we lost track of time.
We had the massage/buff $70 for 60 minutes. I loved the buff, my skin felt baby soft!
The cafe is cool. They have regular seating and also the traditional asian floor seating. You don't need to carry cash, you can scan your bracelet and pay for everything at check out. Their food menu is extensive. I ordered bibimbap. My friend got the bulgoki tacos. Everything was tasty though on the expensive side (but we are inside a spa). They sell ice cream, fresh fruit cups, chocolates, chips, boba milk tea, fresh fruit shakes and tons of various korean dishes.
This location is a great for families. They have a whole floor that is coed (with clothes on).

This is a great deal for a mini spa day, and you will definitely want to come back more often. Price is less than $40 for a big lunch and access to their spa facilities all day, and it is well worth it.
The order of the day: shower, sauna, shower, eat lunch, jjimjilbang, and one last shower before heading out. Parking is free in a private lot.
