    I would not recommend this place to anyone - it's dirty, it's uncomfortable, and there are cockroaches - even though it's a good location and cheap, it's NOT worth it. There are cockroaches everywhere - all over the bathroom, in the kitchen - in broad...More

    The door staff was extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. Staff knew nothing of the area and welcomed us with an crappy attitude. We booked online, for two adults with one bed, which gave us the price of 38$. Due to a booking error through the website...More

    I would never stay here again. It was dirty, there were bugs in the bathroom. They make you take off your shoes as soon as you open their door so you're forced to walk around the common areas without shoes - and yes, the floors...More

    At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
    for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
    and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
    a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
    Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
    flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
    with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
    Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
