myroomhero was founded in 2012 during my semester abroad at SDSU (San Diego State University). I was on an exchange semester and had an extremely difficult time find housing:
- How can I find a room only for couple of months?
- Do I need to sign the contract for 12 month?
- Where can I get used furnishings?
- Which neighborhood is safe?
- Is the landlord trustworthy?
- Will I get my security deposit back?
The onsite search in San Diego was inadequate for my needs; finding no satisfactory accommodations prior to arriving in San Diego I had to stay in a hostel and rent a car while continuing my search for housing. This cost for the housing search alone came to around $700 until I found a place. During the search I discovered that the best places were already rented because San Diego is a desirable place to live. All the best rooms were taken at least three month before the beginning of my semester.
After a long search I ended up living in an elder-care house (that is not funny!) and did not have a great experience.
So I decided to make a change for future students, search for trustworthy landlords that offer furnished housing and create a booking portal where students can easily pre-book verified and furnished rooms. myroomhero will locate the right space with the best terms and conditions while saving you time and money.
Since the beginning, I proudly can say that over +500 students have booked with us.
We would be very delighted to help you to find the right accommodation for you, so that you can enjoy living in San Diego without worry.
