The owner is super fantastic. Kakuna will make sure you have everything you need and only half a block to the subway. Rooms are private and comfortable. I love this location. I feel like I live in the neighborhood. The area is very safe at night.

The studio was just as described. It was a perfect place in a quiet neighbourhood. The subway takes you downtown in 20 min. and there are plenty of shops nearby. The hosts are there to help you in every way they can. Lovely place , I felt home.
