The room we stayed in was big and had loads of storage, which was fantastic as we stayed for 12 nights. There was a refrigerator in the room too and the bed was comfy! It is a peaceful place to stay, great for relaxing! The shower needed a good clean but everything else was great. The people running the guest... More

was a little hard to find thanks to the poor signage, but once we arrived we were given all the local information we needed by the friendly owner, who was most accommodating. The room was fine, with high ceilings, a decent double bed, shelving and a small TV. The house itself is quite old, with a lot of charm, but... More

A friend and I stayed at the City Guesthouse on Wellesley at Parliament. It was pretty much was I expected for the price. The room was ok. Very spacious for two people. We were expecting two twin beds and instead got one twin and one queen. There wasn't any a/c, which probably isn't a problem most of the time, but... More

This was hands-down the best hostel experience we've ever had. Our host was very helpful, gracious and friendly. We had a room on the second floor of the house, and it was very clean, with a beautiful bedspread and lighting that even had dimmers (nice touch). So much classier than most hostel rooms with cheap flourescent fixtures. A big bathroom... More

The neighbourhood around the Guesthouse was very unsettling and the building did not even have an indentifying sign on it. Upon arriving at the time we had declared to the owner, no one answered the door and the phone did not have an answering machine or any indication the number was connected to a business. This is highly unprofessional for... More

Toronto was the first stop for us in our trip around the world. We chose this guesthouse primarily because of the cost, which when compared to other hostels and hotels in the city seemed more than reasonable. It doesn't look much from the outside and to be honest it's not that pretty on the inside, but when we got there... More

The City Guesthouse presents an unusual combination of high-end and low-end features, making it hard to categorize. The GOOD: When I stayed there I got a private room with television, desk, chairs, wardrobe, books & magazines, and a private kitchenette, all for C$40. The bathroom, though technically shared, was right outside my door and was practically a private bathroom. The... More

A friend and I stayed at City Guesthouse for 3 nights. It was a $45 ride from the airport. When we arrived we were greeted by the very friendly manager/owner who checked us in and showed us to our room. The room was clean and had tv, fridge, high speed wi-fi internet access and 2 beds. It also had a... More

I booked this hostel through Hostelworld.com and have been here twice now. Once in march and the other time in December. I went with my g/friend and I must say we had a great time. The house is a few mins walk to the subway! and walking distance (15mins) to allot of the major attractions of Toronto. The neighbourhood appeared... More
