Carlsbad is a suburban town in San Diego County.

There are no "dorms"/hostels.

You can try a site like:

www.airbnb.com

OR

www.couchsurfing.com

How are you getting there?

Thanks for the reply.

I will be arriving in LA and will be taking the train to carlsbad.

Yes I am trying to find however it's so far away. Mostly in San Diego. I am here on a mini budget hence I wouldn't want to pay so much just to bunk in.

if I were to stay in san diego I might need to travel which is going to cost me hence anywhere in carlsbad will be good. Any idea mate? :(

Honestly there are very cheap hostels in San Diego!

The one way fare from LA to Carlsbad is $28. Rd Trip is $56.

There are only 3 trains and all at night to Carlsbad.

The one way fare from LA to San Diego is $37

There are multiple trains all day.

There is much more to see and do in San Diego than Carlsbad. And, as I said, there are several very inexpensive hostels to choose from.
