We stayed at the guesthouse for 3 nights in November 2012 and found it was exactly what we needed. I live in Toronto so I knew this was going to be a good location but didn't realize how good! Situated a 10-minute walk from Ossington Subway station, a 3-minute walk to Sobeys Grocery Store and 10 minutes from the LCBO... More

I stayed there alone for a week in August 2012 in the ground floor apartment. It was clean, had a full kitchen (sink, stove, refrigerator, coffee-maker, closets, dishes/glassware/silverware), fully adequate bath, working air-conditioned air pumping in, comfortable bed and a second bed/couch that I used to pile things on, some chairs, a TV. I requested a radio and it was... More

This place is in an older house and, despite some half-hearted attempts at modernization (such as a bathroom that has been half-painted), its age shows. The owner wants a $100 cash cleaning deposit and provides a list of how much she will deduct if your job falls short (for example, $30 withheld for not sweeping the kitchen floor); in spite... More

Horrible place! Extremely dirty, tiny and the fridge is so loud that it makes you wake up in the middle of the night. the bathroom didnt even have a door - just a curtain and i could barely turn around! The gas stove creeped me out since the safety light went off and it suddenly smelled like gas in the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Shaw street apartment. It was close to everything-in fact walking distance to a wonderful neighborhood full of food and shops. The neighborhood was clean and safte. In addition, Yana was extremely helpful with tips on where to go and even bought a parking pass for us! I recommend that you stay there when in... More

This spot was the perfect fit for us. When my husband and I travel we like to find something with character, that feels like we're home, that's used a bit - making it cozy and quaint. When we arrived there was the smell of incense and music playing, windows open. It was so comforting that we had to take a... More

I've stayed here several times while visiting Toronto. Our hostess Yana, has always been most gracious and helpful. Good accommodations in an excellent location for a reasonable price. Close to downtown, subway/transit and restaurants. Comfortable, quaint rooms were exactly the home base we needed to come back to while doing business or at a weekend event.
