Customer review

Customer review
Liked: Travelling solo, I appreciate the room rate for one is the lowest.

Good value for what you pay. University residence, not a full service hotel so you're given independence. Friendly staff  Disliked: Far from downtown Toronto

Customer review
Liked: Nothing  Disliked: Dangerous, dirty, expensive, and very unfriendly people. I stayed 2 nights (paid for 14) and had to leave because of the loud noise at 3 and 4 am. They offered me no refund and no apology for the noise. They didn't care as soon a they had my money.
Customer review
Liked: The accommodation was cheap, other than that nothing.  Disliked: The room was dirty, there were hairs all over the bedding which smelled. The bathroom had a funny smell. The walls had yellow stains/splaters on them. The floor of the shower was grimy and I did not dare get in without wearing flip flops. The room was dusty with lots of cobwebs. There were two broken TVs in our room and a fridge which broke in the night and flooded the room with dirty water. The floor was tiled and so became very slippy. We tried to find a mop or clothes to dry the floor but all utensils were dirty. The kitchen was directly outside our room, which was also dirty. People were cooking late at night and as there was at least a two inch gap under the door we could hear them clearly and smell the food. The house we stayed in was clearly not a hostel but rather a place where foreign students live, with a spare room or two.
Customer review
Liked: The site manager was a nice guy. Tried to help us as much as he could. Also got a better room than we booked. Very secure for storing bags.  Disliked: Bad location, Not very clean and organised on arrival without the right bed sheets available.

Site owned by the same guy as the toronto traveller's home and getting a better room than we booked seemed like good fortune rather than anything else. Didn't have the room we booked available in the traveller's home(double bed instead of twin room).

Neil O'Reilly
Liked: near the bus and university if u need it  Disliked: very rude, had to change rooms 2 times. booked a dorm and the final room i arrived in had one double bed. two travellers arrived in the same dorm as me later and had to wait until 10.30pm for the manager bring in two mattresses so they could sleep on the floor after hastling him on the phone. bad organisational skills and couldnt help me with any info i wanted to know about toronto like busses or taxi. had to wait at door for mins before i was taken to my room down the street in his car. he then yelled at me for shutting his van door wrong said i could have broken the handle. he was stressed and racist about his boss but he shouldnt take that out on his customers. i wouldnt stay here again

Customer review

Customer review
Liked: i got my own room with a toilet and basin  Disliked: Whole room was filthy, had a tv in room that didnt work, bar fridge that was full of mold, no toilet paper, kitchen was growing mold and didnt know where the shower was. Call for 3 days before i arrived to inform them of when i would be checking in as they ask but no answer till i got to the place and rang them over 5 times. They also walked into my room a few times because they forgot when i was checking out so they were checking if i was still there
Customer review
Liked: the people helped me out  Disliked: There was no room ready for me & no-one to meet me
Customer review
Liked: This was my message to Hostelbookers:

How much more must I suffer before I can cancel a Hostelbookers reservation free of charge because of a fraudulent offer?

I booked the "York University Home" in Toronto for 3 nights. It looked like a typical student accomodation which is rented out to other guests in summer.

I especially picked the York because it is located in the suburbs as there is no free parking downtown.

On the arrival date I arrived at the given address by car at 5 p.m. No one was there, just 3 mobile nos. by the manager to call. He explained me that my room has not been cleaned yet (though check-in started at noon) and he is not willing to do so in the near future. The only way is to go downtown to another address. This is marked as "University Apartment, 16

Willison Square, Toronto, ON M5T 1E8, Canada" on Google Maps.

That's in Chinatown where I was dispatched, according to TomTom 18.9 km off my original place @ York. Do I really have to accept this location change??? Part 2 below.  Disliked: Part 2:

The new place is a 4 sqm cell without windows or ventilation smelling accordingly. The offer says "aircondition". I was not given the minimum service of a towel. The bathroom door can't be locked. All in all: this place is inacceptable. And the parking bill practically doubles the price compared to the York.

Furthermore: the "final price" I was supposed to pay of 67.50 Can$ was increased by 13% tax. As usual in America taxes are not included in the price calculation, as usual the manager (or Hostelbookers) forgets this to mention in the offer, even this is mandatory when you are doing

business in Europe. The VAT is 13% in Ontario - just tell customers the real price they have to pay. So I was 18.9 kms away from the original place, which leads to further parking costs in an hole which really has nothing to do with the description whatsoever paying an increased price. There is

absolutely nothing true about this offer.

After the 2nd night I changed places and threw away the 3rd night. Hostelbookers reimbursed me only the deposit. STAY AWAY!!!

Liked: Le prix et la fracheur de la chambre taient corrects  Disliked: La chambre t vraiment sale, la couette et le matelat dgageait une forte odeur de transpiration et les pices communes n'taient pas du tout entretenues ni par les autre habitant, ni par le personnel donc tout l'appartement avait une forte odeur bien dsagrable. Le quartier n'tait pas rassurant. Et le fait d'tre log dans un sous sol n'ai pas plaisant.
