“home away from home”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

I have to say Mina's guest house feels very much like home. actually home away from home. staff members are very friendly location is great. If you have family or couple looking for extend stay I do recommend North York. A. clean B. very convenient for anything you would need.C.Owner is very nice and there is no if or may be just simple yes. of course I will come back only if I can make reservation usually they are busy. " just like you had long day from your work and come home"

Hi! I lived for many nights and this house become the real home for me. House looks very nice, rooms are renovated, absolute clear. Furniture brand new. Loudry included. And for sure in this very popular place you can't find as clean and nice home for that resonable price. By the way landlord nice gay ;).

Room Tip: in house Young&Sheppard best choise is room #1

I stayed for 6 nights at the 246 sherbourne location, and was quite surprised at the value of this place. My room was very clean and tidy on the third floor - room 8. There's several cafe within a couple minutes walk, and an arboretum just north 5 minutes. China Town is a bit further, but definitely within walking distance. I really liked staying here - kind of felt like I was staying at a relative's house. Nice feel to the place.

I had wonderful stay at Mina's Guest house from Jan5. Everything was very well organized the time you check-in till the time you check-out. No hassles no issues. Straight forward. Room, house, Bathroom, and Kitchen was very clean (Key here).
Owner is very friendly and helpful.
Very Quite. No loud music or any problems for light sleepers.
Location is more than perfect walking distance to Young subway station and you can even get Dundas light-rail around the corner < 1min walk.
Food no issues. you have tons of restaurants, Halal, English, Canadian, Middle eastern, and lot more choices. You will enjoy..

If i have to plan to come to Toronto again for short or long trip, i have no doubt to make Mina's guest house my first choice.

I will recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Stayed Room 6. Not sure how other rooms look like but i like Room 6 location. it is on 2nd floor.

A privately located beautiful guest house in downtown Toronto. It is quiet, with good pricing and the facilities available is ideal with self service kitchen,fast wifi and paid laundry within the house. I was in room 10 for a month. Most likely will stay there when next in Canada.

The basement apartment that i rented from Mina's Guesthouse Services was at 138 Poyntz Avenue in North York, Ontario. It was fully equipped with all utilities included. It was also a clean, comfortable, warm, and spacious place to live. The Owner/Landlord was very respectful, helpful and courteous, all of which are worth paying a little extra for. Thank You Mina's Guesthouse!

Its my second time in Toronto and my second time at Minas Guest House ... good location, close to everything downtown, few blocks to Dundas Subway Station, they have a cleaning service that comes a few weeks a week, laundy on location, big LCD TV and your own small fridge in your room! ..also including cable services and internet makes it a more confortable stay for sure
