Besides the heavy gentrification Golden Hill is pristine. Top notch mexican food in the area. Great liquor stores on every block. Conveniently located near major roadways. There's a dispensary within a mile from my place! I can take a Uber anywhere for under 20 bucks about 75% of the time.

It's a great location in terms of access to things to do, but the homeless population and the overall dirtiness of Golden Hill makes me hesitant to actually settle down and start a life here-definitely not a place to raise children if you want them to be able to wander away from the house. My fiancé and I walk around the neighborhood every evening and the number of homeless people that have threatened us because we accidentally walked up on them going through trash cans, when paired with the number of needles and other drug paraphernalia we've almost stepped on while walking around, are just a few red flags if you are hoping to find a safe environment for your children.
I enjoy the friendly people all throughout Golden Hill. The neighbors are always talkative and willing to lend a hand. They also watch out for one another, which makes me feel safe. The housing is beautifully kept, with stunning gardens filled with ever blossoming flowers. This makes my walks with my dog always enjoyable. I would not change anything about where I live.
