It is simple but has a very good location and the environment is good enough. The room is not big but public area is very big. There is not a lot of people, and you could enjoy stay here like a student.

It's cheap, clean and has good air conditioning- for those looking for budget accommodation in Toronto this fits the bill. Be prepared for a bit of a walk to main attractions- 30-40 mins for CN Tower etc. neighbourhood is nice. All staff were very helpful and you can buy TTC tokens at reception.

Rooms perectly clean and quiet with air con. Perfect standard for the price. Walking distance from China town and little Italy on a safe / nice campus. Shared bathroom as expected but poor canteen facilities even to buy cup of coffee. Near public transport and subway routes also which will bring you straight downtown but approx 40min walk either if... More

The rooms are not very clean (hairs on the floor..definitely not mine!) but the bathrooms were very clean and you have like three showers and five toilets for each floor. The room has a very big window, the bed, a small closet and a table. Breakfast wasn't very good (the sweets) but there's a big choice (eggs toasts cereals milk... More

I stayed at the university during the summer months while coaching volleyball programmes. While the rooms could get warm, the facilities were perfect for our needs. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we were never disturbed by noise or students. I highly recommend this for budget travellers in the Toronto area.

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

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
