This residence is in a great location. Very close to Chinatown, the Annex, Yorkville, and on U of T Campus. It is also close to public transportation so it doesn't take long to get anywhere. Staff was very nice. The rooms were clean but the linens were only o.k. (dingy) I also found the rooms cold. The residence does not have a hostel feel, if you're looking for that kind of atmosphere then I suggest using a more traditional hostel. I wanted a quiet space though, so this was perfect.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The place felt very secure and safe. Lighting was a bit dim in the bedroom. Sometimes it felt a little noisy at night when guests were returning. Subway stop not far away and plenty of cafés/shops nearby. The bedroom and toilet/shower facilities were clean; however toilets could be a long way from the room!
