My room was very clean, reception was friendly. In the heart of Chinatown which is so much fun. However, my room was on the first floor and it's very noisy there. You hear the squeaky door every time someone comes or goes. People arriving past 11pm and even one showing up at 3:20 am. The night manager was very loud,... More

Booked a room a day in advance, on the pictures it had windows, television and looked like a normal furnished room. When we arrived, there was no available room, so they take us from place to place asking their "friends" if they have a place for us to stay for the night. They ended up offering us a room with...

Besides the fact that the rooms are tiny and stuffy and the bathrooms stinky and dirty, the service here was the worst! Not surprising after having the owners son admit that the ladies who work there "get paid nothing" and "there is no customer service". Do not stay here is you don't want to support an exploitative, unsafe, dirty hostel.... More

Because they have the same management. Toilet, bath and one bed - all in one room, no wall to separate the amenities. Someone else's luggage in the room. Window kept open with a piece of wood. Not to mention that I booked a stay at a different address (University Apartments Toronto), but it was overbooked, so they took me there.... More

We stayed here for one night, reserved in advance. We knew it couldn't be much because of its price, and we were right. This isn't much. Upon arriving (there is no sign, only a large housenumber "588") there is a multitude of confusing instructions, phone numbers, a camera and some handheld telephoninish devices. However, the door was open and a... More

Appalling. Agreed in writing in advance for two beds to be provided. Arrived to be told that only a double bedded room was available. Spoke to owner who frankly didn't seem to care. Found alternative accommodation nearby via booking.com which turned out to be excellent. Owner then attempted to charge "no show " cancellation fee of CAD$79 when it was... More

We stayed at the a Travellers Home in Chinatown, for one night. This historical home is located in a tree lined area, within walking distance to restaurants. You have to wait in the front room, ring the owner/manager to come and check you in. Waiting time is about 15/20 minutes. He didn't have much time for us, but told us... More

First we couldn't find the place because it didn't had no signal or name outside. Then, when we came back at 3pm, there were nobody and we waited for more than 30min. And the rooms were awful. Too small to open our bag, and the washroom was so small than you couldn't close the door while you where inside it!!!

Don't do it! unless you're really, really broke or a ginormous hippie - or both. I've travelled a lot, and I've stayed on tons of funky smelling couches and in many a cat-urine-reeking-commune in my time. I consider myself somewhat seasoned when it comes to cheap / bad accommodations. Therefor I thought that the negative reviews on this page where... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
