This is probably the worst "hotel" we have been on. It's noisy and it's definetely NOT clean. Our plan was to stay there for two nights but we couldn't stand it so we left after one night. The room was a bit dirty and one of the windows was being held open with a piece of wet wood and the... More

This place turned out to be a really great stay. Comfortable beds and a great location walking distance from many attractions (China Town, Kensington Market, Yonge St, Rogers Center, etc.) and surrounded by TTC public transportation. We got off to a shaky start at this place. The initial entry is pretty confusing there are several pieces of electronic equipment (doorbell/intercom,... More

Would have gone five stars, but my mandatory slippers didn't fit. But like that the owners have an in with the Prime Minister. Decor was fun and unique - who knew bank envelopes had so many uses? Towels as tablecloths? Revolutionary. And don't get me started on the bike lock toilet paper holder. As a contortionist, I like that their... More

I was in transit and checked in for a single night. I found the place pretty descent. But, for tourists who'd need to navigate in and out of the city, this place isn't centrally located. That said, the tariff was cheap, and the owner friendly, which doesn't leave much to complain about.

My 2 friends and I needed a place to stay for the last 2 days of our trip and we went for the cheepest available - which was a mistake. Their check-in system is really weird: there is no staff in the hostel and you have to call them and wait for them. Then they drove us to another building... More

This is the 10th & worst hotel we've stayed in - travelling by hire car east from Calgary to Halifax. Don,t be taken in by the fact it has 'Downtown' in its name. Tthe room is poor & a bit smelly. Food is ridiculously expensive. Also the people are nothing like as friendly as we have found them elsewhere. Luckily,... More

Me and my friend spent one week in Canada in May 2013 and were looking for cheap accommodation, simply somewhere to lay our heads for the night. For £15 a night, you could certainly do a lot worse. The young lady who met us on arrival didn't speak particularly brilliant English, but was friendly and did try to make us... More

avarage location, bathroom and room were horribly small, if you are above 170cm you may find it difficult to take a shower :D, disastrous staff, the lady told us that we can pay $5 more if we want a room with a bathroom and a window, the thing was that the bathroom in the room didn't have a door :D...

We stayed here for 5 nights in March/April 2012, when we arrived the lady tried to over charge us and we had to show our email confirmation to prove how much we should have to pay. Then we were told we would not be staying in the hostel but in other accommodation which was accross the road. The accomodation here... More

it's a good place to stay in toronto. nice location (chinatown), about 20 min walk to center. staff is very friendly and helpful, atmosphere in the hostel is really good. for a youth hostel it's not very cheap, but the place is clean and breakfast included, which is okay. if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs, room had poor...
