I have been living there for a whole week. Really, the worst hostel that I ever have seen in my life. Stuff ( one old man who never smiles) answered on my question about how the front door opens like "Oh, what a problem you are for me". Sorry, what?! Air conditioner in my room worked by itself. So it...

We spent four nights at Jarvis House on a recent summer getaway to Toronto. The good: Excellent location and unbeatable price (about $115 US per night, including parking, for a room with king bed and adjoining bathroom). If you're okay climbing two steep, narrow stairways, Room 9 on the third floor was exceptionally quiet as it faces the back and...

At check-in, we find out they are no longer serving breakfast (huh?) You're listed as a B&B... We literally took down the shower curtain - it was covered in mold. A/C not blowing cold air. Couldn't find a roll of toilet paper to save our lives, nor the hostess, so we bought our own at the convenience store down the...

While it was spacious it was dirty and old. the carpet should have been replaced years ago and didnt seem as though it had been Vacuumed in months. the window sills and door frames had a thick coating of dust on...

Stayed for a long weekend, 3 nights. The hostess was nice and the place looked clean outside of the rooms. We had a small room on the 2nd floor and a tiny bathroom. Some recepticals in the room didn't work. The carpet was dirty and needs replacing in the rooms. The decor was very old fashioned. We stayed 3 nights...

The room was nice and clean. The room's air-conditioning wasn't working too well, but still nice. The breakfast came with white bread, peanut butter and jam, no fruit or yogurt and there was eggs and a wiener that they called a "sausage" no bacon or ham. The coffee was really good and the orange juice good; otherwise, the place was...

We were very disappointed in the Jarvis House. I have stayed at many B&Bs that were 'old and quaint', this one is just old and run down. The rooms were decently clean but very musty and dingy feeling. Room 11 on the top floor had one window that was so small and the bottom half of it has an old...

It was my first stay in this B&B lodging. All I expected was a place to sleep, near to all sights of interests and public transportation convenient (bus, streetcar and subway) The hostess received me with a warm welcome and facilitated me the informations I needed. The breakfast was good and just enough to get through the next meal.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.

“I can only describe Room #6 where I stayed for five (5) days. It was just the right space for one guest (maybe for a couple) with one luggage. The room has a queen size bed, a closet, a set of drawers, a private bathroom, an A/C and a small TV with a few selection of channels. The room has a window big enough for clarity. All in all, the room is clean and maintained clean.”
