8/10 Very good

It was ok
I have problem in check in. There were six beds instead of maximum three beds.

Wonderful stay!
This was my second time staying here. It's been great both times. It's a low budget place but they definitely don't treat it as such. It's always clean, the gentleman who greets you (I don't know if he's the owner or what) is very nice, and it's an extremely secure building. I will definitely be booking another stay!

It's a pretty good stay. It's nice, safe, and comfortable. I don't really ask for more from a hotel. I have no complaints.

The host was kind. Property is near restaurants and lots of shops. Good place to just crash whilst touring Toronto. Bus is right in front of hotel. No frills.

8/10 Very good

Pros - Close to the 510 bus stop, and easy access up and down Queen St. This bus can take you to the Eaton Centre for reference. - A variety of restaurants in the area; there’s also a grocery store nearby (Loblaws). - Amenities such as body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and towels were provided in the private rooms. - The bed was surprisingly comfortable even though it might not appear it. Cons - My room had a whitish privacy screen, but it let in a lot of light. I wish the room had curtains or actual blinds to better control the light during the daytime. It made it hard to nap. - The walls are paper thin, and I was able to hear people talking outside extremely clearly. I am a heavy sleeper and really didn’t impact my sleep, but this could be an issue for some people.
