Reviewed 2 October 2009

Stayed here for two nights and was wary at first of a shared bathroom, but in fact there a couple of bathrooms and it was not a problem.
It is more of home than just a simple bed and breakfast, which probably make the people staying there a little more respectful.
I would certainly recommand this place for value and location.

A beautiful experience. Nice house with lighty rooms on 3 floors. Shared bathrooms. Most of the rooms have king bed. Good breakfast and the chance to help yourself to tea during the whole day. There's a microwave and a fridge for longer stay guests. Coin laundry located nearby (some 400 mts) . The landlords are awesome, fair and always willing to help and give recommendations when needed. The location is convenient and the area is very safe. It's some 25 minutes walking from downtown and surrounded by beautiful neighborhoods. 3 minutes walk from Dupont metro station. 6 from Spadina streetcar station. Good quality-price ratio. The average guests are nice and interesting persons. Usually travellers, not turists. Great!

Reasonable accommodtion with shared bathroom & kitchen facilities. Rooms were quite nice and comfortable. Not too far from the city centre with the train station at the end of the street or a short walk to hop on the tourist bus. If you don't mind walking a pleasant stroll along Yonge Street.

After trying several hostel experiences in Toronto with mixed results i opted this time for a b&b. Gary the owner once actually started as a hostel then grew into what i would call a hybrid hostel/b&b.
It was quiet, clean, and had a friendly vibe that hotels don't and hostel cliques discourage.Gary and i had many great chats and i simply found the experience exceeded my expectations. Location was superb for my research work at the Robarts library. Breakfast was sufficient and you had a fridge to leave food too.I certainly would recommend it and already have . For the price ,conveniences, ambience , etc it offers a superior travel stay experience. Dave Brydges poet/independent scholar

The B&B was a large town house kept very clean, although run more like a hostel than a home. On the top floor we had a very large room, probably also used as a family room, with bedside table each, dressing table and large wardrobe with a shared bathroom just down the hall. This wasn't usually an issue as there was only one other room on our floor sharing the bathroom.
We were probably first down and had the pick of breakfast, comprising cake, croissants, orange juice and yoghurt, which was adequate. The location was a short walk from the tube and a slightly longer walk to shops and bars.
We had to pay cash on arrival, which wasn't mentioned in previous correspondence and was a little inconvenient, but Gary was helpful and friendly during our stay.

When we first sent our inquiry to Havinn, Gary responded very quickly and gave us the necessary information. Everything was as the website states. The place is not fancy, but clean and simple. The bed we slept on was good. The room was warm. The continental breakfast was good, though more fruit and a selection of cold drinks (more than orange juice) would have been nice. The kitchen furniture and cupboards were clean, but could use an upgrade of paint and style. The price was right for Toronto!

We stayed in Havinn B&B for 1 week. It was very comfortable and reasonably priced. The host,Gary, was an excellent source of local knowledge. The breakfast was continental and help yourself, there were freshly baked items available as well, highly recommeded. The kitchen had a large fridge in which you can put your own food (snacks etc) and was open for access all the time.The house was huge and not too far away from the tube and local transport. You are just north of China Town. Everything is in quite walkable distances anyway if you want to see Toronto.

  • Liked — Large, comfortable room
  • Disliked — Stairs, glad we weren't at the top, no lift, heavy cases.
