North Hills Reviews
Rating 3.74 out of 5 58 reviews
Lived here all of my undergrad and graduate career. Nice neighborhoods with parks and plenty of food options close to CSUN.
North Hills is divided by the 101 freeway. The West side has low crime, great schools, and is very walkable (people exercise alone at night regularly). The East side is scary at night, and not great during the day. There are plenty of nearby activities for all ages. CSUN is close by. We are less than 45 minutes from the beach, the desert, the mountains, Hollywood, and Downtown LA, what more could you ask for?
The neighborhood I live in is nice but sometimes parking can be a problem. There are many things nearby like grocery stores, restaurants, and clothing stores. It's a nice place to live in and I've enjoyed living here.
North Hills is very small but among it there is a lot to it like schools and stores. The population is actually pretty big, you can tell by looking at the streets there is always cars around no matter what time of the day it is.
I moved to North Hills to be closer to my school. Honestly North Hills is a city with a lot of potential.
I liked that I always felt at home. Of course it had its flaws, but through it all, it got me through my childhood and young adult life.
North hills is a very dangerous area and I do not feel comfortable living here. There is a lot of gang and police activity that goes on in the area. The apartments nor the neighborhood are kept up to par and overall is a very poor living environment.
There’s still a lot of homeless and I can’t blame them for only living on the street; however it makes my community look very unhealthy because of all the filth they collect.
North Hills-West is a nice family friendly area to live in. It’s conveniently located near freeways, grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and fast food restaurants.
Its a very nice quiet neighborhood but not much to do around, though the area around it is very nice since you can get around to LA, Burbank, Santa Clarita, Simi-Valley, or Thousand Oaks really quickly
Very calm city, needs some cleaning and road fixing as well as small streets and rent is insanely high.
It's a very weird area. North Hills is basically divided into two parts because of the freeway that goes into it. It is seen that the west part of North Hills is where there's less crime activity in a nicer area and the east part has more crime and not the best area. The thing I don't like here is that sometimes I feel unsafe walking down the street to and from school because men catcall every female they see.
Not a lot to do but a very good mostly quiet community and city. Mostly family oriented. You have to travel to go to work but not so far which is good. School for all academic years are close by as well as a university which is just a few minutes away.
I don’t like that there are a lot of homeless. I like that it is mostly maintained clean. I like that people can still walk at night without fear of getting violated.
Experience here is average, not the best actually.I was once caught in the middle of a 1 hour traffic jam, man was I confused. Only to find out that a tree had fallen in the middle of the road and no one from the neighborhood/city had come to pick it up yet.
North Hills is a very diverse city, I love walking around and being able to hear different languages and see the people. We do have our fair share of criminal activity and wish it wouldn't be that way but the people are what make up for this unfortunate disadvantage.
The place is very chill and quiet during the afternoon. Because the Northoff Ave is one of the busiest street around here, it can be difficult to get around in the morning. Evening can be little dangerous to walk alone around the neighboorhood but otherwise it can be considered a safe place overall.
