You get what you paid for

Price and location

Fair. When I came for my first check in, the front desk personnel was teaching a trainee. It lasted for almost 15 minutes because the trainee was having a difficult time picking up the instructions. Showers and toilets are separated. You get what you pay for.

Was there a week and had no problems. One guest needed the air con turned on and staff handled it promptly. As others have pointed out, be advised this is a hostel situation so if that is not your thing look elsewhere. Lowest priced hotel rooms in dumps in Toronto will run you about $80 a night so if price is your main concern the hostels are a better deal. Take normal precautions with belongings and you'll be fine here.

Norman L. Solo travelers Canada, July 2, 2014
very poor front desk management.

1. clean washroom 2. internet wi-fi 3. central location
3
1. the front desk keeper did not tell me the wifi password after asking him, resulting in almost a day's loss of network access since their office closes in the evening. 2. the front desk keeper's wife is very rude and will make you run up to return the linens when they did not tell you to return in it from the beginning when submitting a cash deposit for the key.

It was fine. My only issues was that the doors tended to stick.

My stay was not too impressive owing to the factors outlined above. There ought to improvement in the services that the hotel renders to the public.
Wong Y. Business travelers Singapore, October 22, 2012
Great location but poor accommodation standards

Great location, short walk away from Spadina & Dundas.

Shocking facade greets the guest at first sight with its rundown backpacker inn image, and there was no visible sign of the hotel's name. Room was small with few amenities, corriders narrow and communal bathroom was badly maintained. 1 of room's binds was missing, no temperature maintenance settings found. Sound proofing was non existent, with doors closing and people talking & walking resonating through the narrow walkways. Good for people looking at no frills cheap stay with close proximity to Toronto life.
