    location

    very late check-in time, no wifi in the room, first arranged me a very noisy room ( i requested a quiet room cause of sleeping problem) then arranged me a uncleaned room, then a room that window fell down, really not a pleasant experience

    Good value for money compared with a hostel”

    You get your own room at not much more than the price of dorm bed. Security guard on premises. Convenience store and good coffee shop (Black Bulldog) next door.

    Good value for money compared with a dorm bed. It gets hot in the rooms in the summer as there is no aircon. Good location to walk to see the sights. Nice to have choices for breakfast but the croissants are best avoided as they are tough. Wifi only in reception and lounge on top floor but is a reasonable speed.

    Great choice”

    Location, great friendly staff and value for money

    Very comfortable, quick and easy check in, staff very friendly, really nice breakfast, very quiet especially considering the central location, easy to find from the subway station so very convenient getting around and to/from the airport, clean rooms and bathrooms, location makes sightseeing easy as is walkable to city sights. I would stay here again if ever back in Toronto

    #1 in Toronto for solo travellers”

    Location, price, fabulous staff

    I flew into Toronto from Cuba at 2 am with no accommodation booked and no intention of paying for a hotel room for what little remained of that night. Pearson airport has a 24-hour coffee shop with wifi so I went there to work on the next stages of my trip, including getting a roof over my head for the coming night: I chose the Neill Wycik because it was super-cheap and I knew the area from a previous visit. When the transport systems were all running, I rode downtown and went to the hotel so that I could drop my bag: to my amazement, they let me check in at about 9 am, a full seven hours before the check-in time on their website! That was just the first of several ways in which the staff proved themselves to be utterly fantastic, far better than the career professionals in many 5-star hotels. As for the establishment itself, there's no getting away from the fact that it's a college dorm for most of the year so single bed, shared bathroom etc; but, for a solo traveller on a budget, it's the best value in Toronto.

    price, location, access

    - No internet AT ALL in room unless you pay for it (another university residence in Toronto I stayed at provided a free phone cable hookup) - No air conditioning - Bad neighbourhood - Poor selection at included breakfast - Good downtown location--walking distance to mall and some attractions - Cheap -- don't expect much, but you get what you pay for

    Great experience for how cheap the hotel was. Only negative thing was that the elevators were broken and we had a 15 minute wait each time we had to catch one.

    cheap alternative to hostels in summer time”

    cheap, good breakfast, best location

    This is originally a home for college students. Between two semesters its becoming a low budget hotel for tourists. The rooms are simple (no closet, just a desk and bed). You have one towel, some soap and breakfast voucher. You are sharing two bathrooms with 4-5 other rooms. Attention - Toronto could be very hot and humid in the summertime - the rooms have no air condition! the location is great, just 5-7 min from Yonge Street and Eaton Centre.

    good location, free breakfast

    i stayed one night at neill wycik. the building is really old, it is dormitory for student not a hotel. but good price though. if you travel in summer, it kind of warm at night. no air conditioning. i was out all day anyway. i think it is for tight budget travelers.it is very safe and the staff was very helpful and nice. it is shared toilet and bathroom. the toilet was stuck and disgusting.

    Great location but bring your earplugs”

    Location, staff

    stayed here for three nights with a friend. the twin room was just a normal single room that had two beds crammed in it. not very comfortable but enough for a few nights. there is no air conditioning so needed to keep the window open and had to use earplugs to be able to sleep due to the noise from outside. the breakfast was okay, comparable to any other hostel. the best thing about this place was its location, it's located right in downtown toronto, so it's possible to walk everywhere. the subway line is close-by as well. the hostel staff was very nice and helpful.

    Ok for a brief stay. The hotel is actually a students' hostel with no attached bath room. There is no mirror in the room. The room is small with a small writing table. There is no tv ... you have to go to the common room to watch.

    Un bon départ”

    Central, Bon Marché, Parfait Petit Dejeuner

    Nous avons été très bien accueillies, il y avait une place sécurisée (payante mais pas chère) pour garer la voiture, notre chambre est exigüe et contenait à peine le stricte minimum (2 lits, 1 chaise, 1 petit ventilateur et juste assez de place pour nos 2 valises) mais cela suffit. Le sol de la chambre n'est pas propre, les draps sont trop usés. L'eau de la salle de bain est délicieusement fraiche cet été, on apprécie pour le bain de pieds usés par la marche et une douche rafraichissante! Les couloirs sont calmes, nous avons l'impression d'avoir la salle de bains partagée pour nous seules, c'est agréable. Le système du petit déjeuner (4 articles au choix) nous convient parfaitement, j'aime beaucoup cette solution. Nous sommes à deux pas du centre de Toronto, c'est ce qu'il faut pour découvrir la ville sans se ruiner et sans perdre du temps. Le personnel est agréable, l'ambiance est "cool". Je recommanderais ce lieu aux jeunes, aux economes et personnes ne cherchant pas le confort ou la propreté parfaite d'une chambre, mais un lieu pour dormir et duquel partir à la découverte de Toronto et ses environs. Un point positif pour le WiFi et le séjour. Continuez d'exister!
