Well, this is as basic accommodation as it gets. I had a pretty small room with no furniture in there but the bed, small table for the bed-side lamp and a chair. No closet whatsoever and only two hooks on the wall, so my chair was my "closet". The hallway revealed the level of this place. They do not offer... More

Just an emergency option if its getting late and you dont have anywhere to stay at. It is one of the cheapest but thats the only advantage it has. When you open the main door to the lobby the strong smell of cigar and other stuff makes you regret you even came inside. The room is just a little but... More

Within walking distance of the CN Tower, waterfront and greyhound station we found this to be outstanding value. Clean room, very comfortable bed, good bathroom and shower facilities. the price was $50 for a room with own washroom i will definitely go back . When we booked the hotel , we where in two minds after reading the reviews but... More

Renting this hotel went very smoothly, Sam (Owner) is very prompt with answers to any questions a person may have. This kind of service is important when renting a place. The hotel is in a great location or you can say center of toronto downrown with all the necessary amenities you may need. Wifi in the hotel was great to... More

I've stayed in many hostels in Toronto, this is the absolute worst. The lobby smelled of marijuana it was dirty all over. The shared shower wasn't caulked properly and full of black mould. There were no paper towels in there either, I used my pants because at that point they were probably the cleanest thing in that building. We used... More

Had friends from out of town stay there during Pride as they couldn't find hotel vacancy. They said that we had to come and see this place. Well upon entering there was a couple crackhead/hookers in the entrance/lobby. We went up to the room and they opened the door we took one look inside and left. Beware that they have... More

Any hotel in a developing nation can offer more than this establishment. The bus station of Toronto is cleaner! The bathrooms are dirty and filthy! You can get sick or even die! The staff are badly informed about the city! If you are in a budget travel stay in a hostel!

I've never stayed at this "hotel", but I am quite familiar with it - this is a "hotel" used by crack addicted prostitutes and drug dealers to ply their trades. Every room is infested with bugs and the building itself is the scene of many violent crimes - on a weekly basis! If you are travelling to Toronto from anywhere... More

This hotel came up on a hotel comparison website as the cheapest option for a double room, offering a central location in Toronto city. Too good to be true? YES! When we arrived at the the run-down looking hotel on Church Street, we were greeted by the receptionist who asked if we would like to see the hotel before we... More
