This was the worst experience in customer service I have ever had. We booked a private room with a private bathroom and weren't expecting much for the price-we just needed a place to sleep at the end of the day. And we didn't even get that! We arrived and waited at least 1 hour for someone to come check us... More

I have read previous reviews and most bad i think it is due to your expectations and i will have to agree with some of the problems mentioned. The main reason one person would pay a different price for the same room for a different bed is that every booking site has a slightly different price so it is very... More

Don't. Just don't. If you're reading this, get off the page. Do not. Even. Consider. IT. My boyfriend and I booked a room here because it was the cheapest alternative for new years eve that wasn't $300. We got a room (which i'm pretty sure was supposed to be a double bed) that came with a tiny single bed, and... More

The one good thing about this hostel was the location! Right downtown and near everything! If you aren't planning to spend much time during the day here it's fine. Bathroom is really really dirty and doesn't get cleaned well or often. Very loud in the hallways at night. But it is very cheap so for the price it isn't terrible.

Worst hostel I have ever been to... It is very dirty and the staff is so unwelcoming. Moreover, they are scammers, they made us pay more than the girl sharing the same dormitory on the same night, and she had arrived at the same time.... they found tons of excuses when I approached them with that before yelling at me...

31 Grange Avenue, Toronto--one of the 3 location of Chinatown Travelers Home. I stayed one night in May, the price was cheap, but the room was terrible! The bugs all over the bed, I can't sleep whole night! A really bad experience I had there.

We only booked 2 nights to start with as we were a bit cautious of past reviews. We did have to wait a while for someone to meet us at the house but it was easy to find. We had booked a 2 person private room and the ended up taking us to another building a few blocks away. There... More

Prior to our actual arrival, we read the various reviews about how horrible and inhabitable the hostel is. We were rather apprehensive, but we decided to give it a shot as we were tight on budget. There wasn't much problem finding the place as it was centrally located, but it within a housing estate. Quick summary of the hostel -... More

We arrived pretty late at night (drove from Chicago w/ lots of traffic and construction). The profile on a few different websites implied that there would be a night manager available- this is not the case. Called the phone number scribbled onto a piece of paper taped to the reception room door with the word "night manager" scrawled underneath. A... More

This is literally the worst place I ever stayed in and I travel a lot. It is situated within a living quarter and really hard to find. I think I would not have managed it without a Taxi. Luckily it is in the center, so the taxi was not that expensive. The location is the only good thing about this... 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.
