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

I stayed here in the 1st week of June for 7 days. I would stay here again, cheap and a great location. - Staff were friendly (even when I arrived at 3am due to my delayed flight). - 20-25 mins walk to Yonge Street and Eaton Shopping Centre - 5 mins walk to BIXI bicycle stand - 8-10 mins walk...

Don't expect anything more than a place to sleep at night. This is a very basic 'hotel'. It's located very conveniently downtown Toronto, within walking distance of many attractions. The rooms are very basic, you get a mattress, a small desk, and a shared public bathroom/showers. The price is cheap, we were 2 people, stayed for 1 night, for 58$.

The place was reasonably clean, but it is in a 1960s or 70s concrete building so it is not beautiful. This wouldn't matter because it is cheap and well-placed for downtown Toronto. This hall is set up for school groups and sports teams - not for visitors from the general public. The worst thing was the attitude of the staff,... More

Toronto is an expensive city for accomodation, and this university residence is a total bargain. Of course, you'll get a basic comfort, with shared bathrooms, but the room is really OK. On the other hand, you will benefit from the common area equipments, which include a shared fridge, microwave oven, etc. What's more, the location is top-notch, right smack in... More
