    The location of the hotel was great my friends and I could walk to any destination in Toronto city. The room I booked did have air conditioning which was a huge plus. The bathrooms were really clean even though it was shared with an entire floor. The staff was friendly and helpful. Does have its own parking garage ! Basically if I had to sum it all up this place is great for college students !

    The room that I booked had nothing in it besides 2 double sizes beds that were uncomfortable. The sheets on the beds hmm, it was not the cleanest. With a simple inspection you can make out several spots. The breakfast meal in the morning was just coffee toast and cereal. Nothing to fancy.

    The location was ideal to get around to the city. Free Breakfast TV

    No Closet/cloth rack/hangers. No Table/Chair. Just one toilet per floor with no exhaust fan. The corridor stinks due to it. Wifi was just for the namesake with no connectivity. Showers doesn't have a soap/shampoo holder. Our Itinerary showed the renovation was till May 2014. But when we asked about those poor facilities, we were told that the renovation is still on. There were no discounts/prior information provided for the lack of facilities. (Please check your facilities before the check-in)

    I was in a 4 ladies bedroom. The bedroom was very clean, as well as the bathroom, which was shared. The location is very convenient and the staff are very kind. I will return to this place in my next trip to Toronto.

    my stay was for a concert and a 1 night stay. This hotel was in the perfect location for bars and walks, lots of stuff around as its near the marekt. The hotel was very simple yet clean and tidy. if you arent looking for much of a room as there were only 2 double beds and a tv mounted on the wall (Private room). for me it was perfect as I was only looking for a place to lay my head down for the night. For the 100.00 a night this place is an excellent choice for a young group of adult taking a leisure trip. Over night parking was cheap $15.00 a night.

    The staff seemed alittle unorganized as they tried to bill me for 3 days parking, once the error was noticed they did correct it no problem.

    I liked that I could stay in a great location for a little amount of money. Location location location. Staff were decently friendly.

    Renovations are going on and so floors were dirty, didn't have a phone in our room as advertised. It was mid summer so the room was so stuffy. Also there is a fire station on the street next to the back side of the place so several times during the night you will most likely get woken up by the 'wooooOOOOOOO' of sirens. Beggars can't be choosers though because all other hotels in the city this weekend cost more per night than our three night vacation. You get what you pay for, a place to shut the door behind you and go to sleep (sort of). :)

    The location and access to public transit is excellent. The variety of nearby restaurants is great! A convenience store close by. Friendly and knowledgeable front staff. Kensington Market is a really cool place to wander around.

    The lack of a secure lock-up for passports and important documents at the front desk was disappointing. The beds were clean, but squeaked every time anyone moved around on the bed.

    The social atmosphere is diverse and relaxed.

    Sometimes I meet too many new people. But that's inevitable, because that's the kind of living I have to endure now.

    -very clean -comfortable -free wifi -balconies -good kitchen -great location -reasonable price

    -"double room" as stated on the website apparently means room with one double bed, despite all of the photos for this room showing two beds, and the board in the lobby saying "double private: 3-4 people." So we ended up having to pay extra to get an actual double room (two beds). The people even kept saying, "Yes it's very misleading," which is weird. But it turned out okay anyway.

    - the room and bed was clean - it was a secure building - within walking distance to ttc and variety store

    - no way to change the temperature in the room... no window or patio door that could be opened and couldn't adjust the settings. - 4 flights of stairs with no accessibility - 2 sets of stairs that don't attach so if you go up the wrong set then you have climbed 4 flights only to go back down and up the other set... no signage. - the fire alarm was hanging from wires

    Bathrooms and restrooms were clean

    The person at the entrance was not kind at all. They were renovating the rooms, in our room they was only a bed, no furniture. It was like they didn t expect us to come....

    The location is good. Breakfast is fine. Bathroom and shower looks clean.

    The first two nights we were on the street sides, and the whole two nights we cannot sleep at all. They just finished their indoor facility remodeling, which is good, but they are not ready to having people to staying. They still trying to fix their facility while we stayed, and that was very annoying. There is no hanger in the private room and shower room at all, we have to remind them to put the hanger there. Pillow without pillowcase.

    The worker's were amazing! And the location couldn't be better.

    The bathrooms were kind of grungy as were the towels.
