The only good thing was the location. The personnel was not very kind and the private bathroom was very dirty. One side of the mattress was sinking as well. I did not expect to stay at a palace, but it was the worst place I had ever went to.


The worst place I have stayed in Toronto. The price should be $10.00 because the shared bathroom was falling apart and dirty and the bed had bugs crawling on it under the sheets.

Everything was good except the smell. It smelled like people chain smoke in there with the windows shut. Great location. 20 minute walk from union station.


This place is awful. The worst customer service I've ever experienced. Even if you're a hostel at a low rate, the service is unnacceptable. They cancelled my entire reservation with no more than a simple email. Apparently, they couldn't process my credit card the day of checkin. They emailed me as I was 40,000 feet in the air arriving in Toronto. And because I didn't have roaming, I was never aware of the issue until I arrived at the hostel 30min after the window closed to update my CC.

Very dirty, no elevator with a really bad atmosphere. Whole building (including inside the room) smelt of cigarettes. The whole thing just seemed really dogdy. Very cheap and great location but honestly not worth it; I've paid less for better before. Bed was very uncomfortable, wires hanging out of the walls etc. The room looked nothing like the pictures.

This hostel stink like cigarettes and had no atmosphere, so I didn't like it at all.


The hotel has an excellent location near to Yonge & Dundas square and to a subway station. However, the hotel is more of a motel. The lobby smells like cigarette, the doors and the walls aren't well painted and they don't clean properly the rooms. The bed was good, clean and comfortable, though. The pictures shown in hostelworld don't properly show how the hotel really is.


This hotel is conveniently located just minutes from Yonge-Dundas Square and subway access. Rooms are basic, but thankfully had great air conditioning. Not the place to come if you're looking for a social atmosphere but fine if you just want a place to sleep.


Pretty noisy through the night until about 3 am

Next to the Hotel is a an Ethiopian Restaurant. The Exhaust of the kitchen is blown to the Roof, where the to-air in the shared bathroom is getting in. So there is a absolutely horrible smell in whole floor. It smells like hells kitchen.
