This a complex situation because he does not fall under a Tenant or lodger since he does not have his own separate room. So, you cannot use the Unlawful detainer process to remove him. See California Civil Code Sections 1946.5 and 1940; California Penal Code Section 602.3:
He is however considered a Guest. So, if he has overstayed his welcome, you can change the locks and force him out. You may first try to call the Police to remove him.
