The house is quite and clean. There is regular cleaning. House owner is so nice and responsible, and always available. With this in mind that it's in heart of the city, the price is very good. Generally, it was a good experience staying in Mina Guesthouse.

Walking along the street outside of this place, we saw an actual drug deal, prostitutes, and more homeless people than I have ever seen before, and that was within a 5 minute walk to the closest bike share rack. On one evening, right next door, one lady spent literally the entire evening screaming. Just yelling. At no one in particular,... More

Please recall the old saying about ",,,not judge the book by the cover"! My first impressions of Mina's were less than sterling but as I moved into the house and got to know the place and especially the location...my goodness,,,I defy you to find a better location in the very heart of Toronto and especially the access to public transit,...

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
