This is the second time I've stayed at New College Residence - this time with my nine year old granddaughter. Price for a private room with two beds was around $450 USD for a week, which is a good deal for Toronto - it's a college dorm room. Common area and bathrooms were clean and access is controlled by electronic... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in June 2014 and i am more than impressed. $10 buffet breakfast on the cafeteria which was very good. I thought it would be noisy as id expected young travellers but it was calm n peaceful. Within walking distance from Chinatown and places like Rogers stadium, Cn tower, harbour front etc. Room was more... More

Good place to stay here. We were exploring the city and basically just needed a place to shower, change and sleep so this was perfect as it was cheap. Everyone was very friendly. Beds were pretty stiff but nothing too bad. Free WiFi. Clean bathrooms and showers. Overall it was just about perfect!

Huge spotless room with two twin beds, quiet, super safe building requires a magnetic card to enter, 5 blocks to the subway but the street car passes right at the corner. One-per-floor so-called kitchen has no pots, plates, cups, silverware or microwave, but you can bring your own to use on the stove. Chinatown is just a 2 minute walk... More

This place has excellent value for central Toronto, given the amenities and general atmosphere. Highly recommended for a budget traveler that is too old or tired of the hostel scene. I've stayed in plenty of university residences and I would rank this one as 'average'. If you are used to this type of place, except the norm. A couple notes... More

If you want a location that is central to both public transport, easy local walking and some sightseeing locales in hand with wonderful onsite personnel that offer a personal and professional touch, this is your reasonable, safe, and clean place to stay. Rooms do not have a private bath but facilities were just down the hall and always clean. Bed... More

To save money, because we were staying in town for six nights, we stayed here but regretted it. As previous posters have mentioned, the front desk staff seem poorly trained, and they are more used to big school groups than individual guests. An unfriendly young man who was working the overnight shift told me he couldnt tell me if there... More
