Default San Jose to Hayward?

My boyfriend just moved from San Jose to Hayward to be closer to his job in San Francisco. I am back and forth about moving there myself. I like
that Hayward is centrally located, and has BART. I also like the incredible views the Hayward Hills offer, as well as the University. That is the extent of what I like about Hayward. The areas below the hills seem a bit run down. The downtown area is lacking as well. Has anyone moved from
San Jose to Hayward? If so, how do you like living there? I know that
it's not a major move by any stretch, but Hayward is a lot smaller.
Moving from a large city to a small one comes with some changes.
Relocating can be a headache, no matter the distance. I just don't want
to move and then move right back after a few months. I welcome any and all comments. Thanks

Hayward has a great Geoghraphical position and is perfect in nature in Bay Area. Close to any major city in Great Bay Area.

You're close enough to Oakland and SF that the big city life ain't far away. Hayward isn't at the top of many people's lists of favorite cities, but it's convenient and affordable, so you might want to give it a try. It would seem that time will see the town improve as so many others price working people out.

Hayward's not a bad choice.

I am in San Lorenzo and like it so far. A lot will depend on what part of hayward you move to and what you are looking to get out of the city. For me I am a stay at home person and like not having to deal with big cities. San Lorenzo/Hayward area was the nearest city I could afford to buy to work (work in RWC).
