This is by far the worst place I have ever stayed. The whole place is in serious need of an upgrade. The room was small and dark and not like the pictures, it wasn't the cleanest either. The walls were really thin and we could hear the people in the room next to us. The aircon was extremely loud and... More

The hotel itself is not great, but the bed is comfortable, the water is hot, and it's close to the subway, Allan gardens, Eaton center. So overall, no luxury is available, however it will be easy to move around the city and go to the main attractions, and the price is good enough for a small sacrifice.

Stayed a night as a couple and returned to stay two more nights after 3 days. We loved this place due to (a) low cost and (b) location. The hotel is central to all amenities including transportation, food, taxis, tourist information desks, coaches etc as they are within minutes walk away from it. No issues on the odor of cats...

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for 10 days and the experience was positive! We were given a good room that was cosy and it was perfect for our long stay. Where else can you find a room with private bathroom and large flat screen TV in the heart of the city for such a price?? Everything in... More

It's very bad. I was there to visit my friend and it's terrible. It's called hotel but it's so much worse than a hostel I had stayed before. The smell is terrible and the room is not clean. It's just near the centre and that's it. The wi-fi is desperate and not reliable, password is changed everyday.

If the reason you get a hotel boils down to "have a place to sleep that isn't the streets" then this pretty much does that. It's affordable (cheap, really, for Toronto) and really well-located. But, apart from the bedding, it wasn't clean. The roof seems to be caving in as the ceiling is buckling, and place just has a general... More

Its very basic and there is no elevator and mostly the building seems a little rundown. That said, it is a budget hotel, it was pretty clean, and they were helpful if anything was needed. I wouldnt bring anything too valuable with me as i felt i could knock the door right over if i pleased. However, if you need... More

This "hotel" was shady right from the start. I still check my credit card account in case of fraud... There were odors of cat piss and cigarette in the whole corridor. Toilet didn't flush and the washroom was covered in dirty water. However, the bedroom (#2) seemed strangely... clean. Seems recently renovated. Expect dust in the corners. The AC works.... More

Well, this is as basic accommodation as it gets. I had a pretty small room with no furniture in there but the bed, small table for the bed-side lamp and a chair. No closet whatsoever and only two hooks on the wall, so my chair was my "closet". The hallway revealed the level of this place. They do not offer... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
