0.09km from Sultan ShawarmaWhere else could you stay in downtown San Diego for $28 a night? Having said that, you do give up some comforts and conveniences. You get very little privacy. There is only one bathroom that everyone uses so if you have to go really bad and someone is in the shower, you either gotta wait or find somewhere else. Sleeping can be a challenge. Besides snoring roommates, it's noisy outside. You will hear sirens, tires screeching and people shouting and blasting their music all throughout the night. They make you rent towels so bring your own if possible. If you have a rental car, like I did, parking will be an issue. Fortunately, in my case, the city was not enforcing parking restrictions when I stayed so I was able to park in front. The only option I think there is for parking is a parking garage nearly a mile away that was charging $30 a day. Finally, remember that pot is legal in California and you will smell it here. That may not bother you but if it does, I would stay elsewhere. Overall, for the price I paid, it was a good value. The people were friendly. It is an excellent location. You are only a few miles from Coronado Beach and the San Diego zoo. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. I recommend it if you want to come to San Diego but you are on a tight budget.
