You should look in the terms of your lease first. Generally, the lease will indicate how many people can stay in the unit.

If you add someone to stay at your place, that may be seen as a violation of your lease.

Check the California Landlord/Tenant book http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/landlordbook/ to have a clear understanding of your rights/obligations

See what is says about living in the rental unit, when and how much a landlord can raise the rent, etc http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/landlordbook/living-in.shtml

Whatever you do, you can't arbitrarily make a decision without reviewing your lease and discussing with your landlord.

Maybe is the answer: Check the lease agreement. You may not be allowed to sublet without agreement from the owner. You may not be allowed to have someone else stay at your unit for an extended time without consent of the owner. Read the agreement. please.
