One Great Location
In The Heart of The Gaslamp
Being centrally located in the heart of the city’s historic Gaslamp Quarter means you are just steps from restaurants, pubs and shopping as well as being just blocks from Petco baseball park and the convention center. Also within walking distance are many of the attractions guests love. So you can conveniently get out to see the sites, pop ‘home’ to refresh and find a myriad of food and drink options with no effort at all!

NEST17 Why Stay With Us?

Nest on Fifth is a concept that combines the independent atmosphere of a vacation rental with the connection and convenience of a hotel or hostel stay. Our apartments are housed in their own building, but are managed by USA Hostels San Diego downtown, an award-winning hostel with 22 years experience helping guests have a memorable stay in our city.

While our apartments are set up for self-service living, we also have 24 hour reception at our nearby hostel, so if you have a question or concern, or want to request housekeeping service, assistance is just a phone call away. And, as a guest of ours, you can buy discounted San Diego Zoo or SeaWorld tickets from us or join us on any of our tours and outside activities.



The nest is quirky, fun! Unique, very modern, with all the necessities, furnished lovely, super clean, friendly helpful staff, comfy bed, however because of the great location it can be loud… But it was nothing that earplugs can’t hide. (And they even provided earplugs!) we loved it! And we will be back!

Very comfortable and convenient apartment in excellent location. Would definitely stay again! Super easy process for arriving and gaining entry. Easy walking distance from convention centre, with plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants nearby and a supermarket about 10 min walk away.
