Stayed in Pittman residence halls for 6 nights while in Toronto for a conference. Good stuff: It was SO CHEAP! It was clean, close to good stuff & the staff were really nice. I shared a suite w/ my coworker (thus shared a bathroom with one other person). It was relatively quiet. Could have been better: I had forgotten what... More

I was here in toronto because my husband was in the ICU at St. Michaels hospital. There was not a hotel to be found in the city at the time. I was directed to Ryerson and couldn't have been more grateful. For $90 you got a clean room and a hot breakfast. The rooms are plain but clean and were... More

The location is close enough to walk to some destinations and only a few blocks from eaton centre and the subway. Rooms are small and old, but clean. There are full kitchens on each floor with fridge, sink, microwave, and stove, but NO pots and pans. Save some big money by bringing and old pan and a few forks and... More

I spent 2 nights at the Pittman Hall residence. It was a 4-room unit with a shared bathroom. Since it was the summer they were in the middle of painting and the fumes mixed with the embedded stale smell of greasy student cooking was very unpleasant. The mattress was thin - imagine a worn 2" thick foam camping mattress wrapped... More

We spent three nights at the ILLC. The room was small but clean and the staff was very friendly. We were able to park our car in the building garage for an extra $13 a night. The location was excellent, a few blocks from Dundas Square. It's not fancy but it is a great value for downtown Toronto.

We just arrived home after a fantastic trip to Toronto. My family of 2 adults and 2 kids, along with a friends family of the same stayed at the ILLC. Each family had a room with a pullout sofa bed, which were not as uncomfortable for me, or the kids, as others had mentioned- a sound nights sleep for the... More

There are two very different locations - I've stayed at both for different reasons Pitman Hall 160 Mutual St - single room with a single bed and a desk - no restroom/bathroom in your room. Shared bathroom and shared private shower/tub. The mattress is very basic and very hard, not the most comfortable. They have extremely restrictive rules about having... More

we stayed at the residence for 3 weeks for a study tour. The hotel was quite pricey it was like paying for a 5 star hotel. The staff were lovely and accommodating and so were the cleaners. but our room was quite disappointing, the rooms had a stench, our room had a toilet that always smelt like urine. Cleaners would...

I stayed with my brother for 4 nights here. The room was certainly bigger than I expected, but I've never been in a dorm before. The room wasn't sparkling clean, we even found an open bag of nacho chips in one of the cupboard (but by the looks of it they'd only been there a day or two at most).... More
