Hillcrest is a lively neighbourhood and you can find all amenities here. Lots of nice places to rent and also many supermarkets (including healthy ones!) around. Nice area to stay in.

We stayed in Hillcrest during our holiday in San Diego. The neighbourhood is full of bars and pubs, so you can easily find a place to spend a couple of hous. Quite crowded in the afternoon.

Within 45 minutes walking distance to downtown and Gaslamp quarters. The park beside my accommodation was good, although i noticed a lot of harmless homeless people. i felt safe at all times.

There's so much to do! Amazing choice of eateries and groceries stores. And it's so close to Balboa, the park, the zoo, OB, the boulevard, mission and downtown.

This is San Diego's coolest neighborhood, a city neighborhood in a huge city that often feels like a suburb. Great restaurants and coffee shops. Nice place to stroll.
