We're a young couple and don't mind staying anywhere as long as it has a clean bed and decent bathroom, but we are not unhygienic. We knew we were having a shared bathroom but ended up not even using the showers. The toilets are in funny little rooms with not much leg room, the doors don't lock very well (as we found out!), and there are no sinks. You have to wash your hands in your room, which means touching several doors and your room key with germy hands. It also makes it inconvenient if you were nipping to the loo before going out. Not nice. We ventured into one of the bathrooms, and the floor was completely flooded and filthy. So no showers for us. The few showers on each floor are also shared between quite a few people so not the cleanest. The room itself was ok, the bed clean. It was quite noisy and the room was very hot. Breakfast was ok (cereal and toast) but the eating area was not nearly big enough. We booked it because it said it was close to Union Station - it is fairly close, but if you don't want to walk through streets of homeless druggies, take the bus. Overall, not a great area safety-wise and not a super-clean place, but if you want budget, it may be worth the risk.
