The location cannot be beat - a stone's throw from a subway entrance and walking distance to all types of shopping, the UofT campus is ideal if you don't need to drive in Toronto. And, of course, it's a residence! I expected the bathroom down the hall, communal kitchen and laundry, and storage facilities (all of which were well maintained, easily accessible, and very clean). I didn't expect construction blocking access to the facilities and the lack of wifi (unless you can use EduRoam). After paying $10 for an Ethernet card and spending hours updating my laptop (which has never had a problem connecting to other LANs) I finally gave up and used public wifi at coffee shops and restaurants. Also didn't expect to have to bring my own hair dryer (no hand dryers in the bathrooms) and the room was very cold - pack layers if you are traveling in the summer. Another plus, however, was the excellent breakfast in a stunning dining hall across the street.

Stayed here for 3 nights and am going back next month. Rooms are available from May - August. Basic room with a single bed, a desk, a closet, bookcase & a window. Kitchen had a microwave & kettle. You'll need to bring a plate, cup & cutlery (or pick them up at a fast food outlet). TV room was available and free local calls. Bathroom is down the hall. If taking VIA Rail, take University subway line from Union Station & get off at MUSEUM stop. The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is to the west & 1 block east is the residence. Secure entry & the front desk is very accommodating. Luggage room is available.

Room Tip: Men's & women's washrooms are on opposite ends of a long hall. You might want to have a room offering you a shorter walk to the toilet/shower.

This is a great way to stay in downtown Toronto for a reasonable price. Not for you if you want a hotel with all the amenities, but for price and location it can't be beat.

We stay at least once a year.
Generous buffet breakfast in Hogwarts-like building (from the outside) (if you know your Harry Potter) is included. Also access to kitchenette if you come prepared (you might need a pot and dishes, for instance).
Student residence accommodation (shared bathroom, not terribly comfortable beds) in older part of BEAUTIFUL University of Toronto campus. Really nice if you get into the older residence building but the newer one is ok too. Stone building opening on a treed grassy enclosure. LOVE IT.
Guests from around the world. All well-behaved (never once had any complaints about noise).

And you're right downtown. Several museums, bookstores, restaurants, within walking distance in one direction and strip bars within walking distance in the other direction - what more could you want?!

Stayed: July 2006
