Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Since Toronto don't have many hostel, we choose ELI DT as our place to stay. With great deal and good room, you get breakfast every morning. There's a convenient store around the corner, place to eat and walking distance subway. For backpackers, this is a great place to stay!

For $100 /night you get a decent hotel downtown Toronto. It doesn't come with any frills but there is no need as the hotel is walking distance to just about anywhere downtime. We walked from the hotel to the CN Tower, Kensington Market, the waterfront, etc. The rooms were clean and secured so I have no complaints. I would stay here again.

Hotel check in staff were very friendly and lobby area and bathroom were clean. Stayed in a "suite". Consisted of two double beds, a very small table and chairs and a set of stairs which led to a very cramped and dark area with a tv and pull-out couch. Furnishings and room elements were very tired and dated and one bedspread had a hole in it. There is no convenient area to park to unload your luggage and breakfast consists of continental items only. Would not stay again but there is a Comfort Suites almost next door from the same hotel chain that is a much better stay and includes a full breakfast.

Decent little hotel. Room was a good size, bed was comfortable. Short walk from yonge street and downtown. About a mile from the hockey hall of fame. The area is a little shady but we didn't have any problems. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. There is no parking so you have to be quick about dropping your bags. Parking in the area can get expensive. There is no elevator but for us that was not an issue. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to spend a few nights in Toronto on the cheap, and I would stay again.

This Econo lodge hotel is not much different from the others I've already stayed in. The room is fine with good space and clean stuff. What concerned me about this hotel in Toronto was the difficulty to unload the bags from the car (there's no place to stop in front of the hotel nor park). You have to do things in a real hurry if you don't want people to be angrily honking their horns behind you. We had to leave our car parked on the street because the nearest paid parking lot cost about 25 dollars plus taxes the overnight. Something else to be pointed out is safety. The windows from the second floor, for example, give view to a short roof which can be easily climbed from the street. I'd be no surprised to see someone staring at my room through the window, that's why I left the curtains closed during the entire time of my stay. The place is an option to stay shortly, but if you are up to spending a bit more for comfort (no elevator = carrying heavy bags along the corridor carpets) and security, try somewhere else!

I stayed two nights at Econo Lodge. It was one of the lowest priced hotels in the city, but I was pleasantly surprised -- and I will stay here again. The only downside was slightly weak shower pressure, but other than this, it was great. Breakfast was good, and wifi internet worked great.

This is a good location on the edge of the university. It's a safe area and reasonably close to things: 3 min walk to Carlton/College streetcar; 10 min walk to College subway station; 5 min walk to the best Loblaws store in Toronto (groceries & ready food).

Parking is a bit difficult, as with everywhere in the downtown. There's a lot near Yonge & Gerrard that's $12 for a full 24 hours of parking, but no in-and-outs. A closer lot just one block north is $23 for 24 hours, but you can do in-and-outs as long as it's not packed.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on the upper floor

There are certain prejudices about this hotel that need to be dismissed:
- The staff are efficient and friendly (especially the desk manager). However if you are inclined to ask them a dumb question (like where can I park my car) you are likely to get a curt reply.
- The area around the hotel is EXTREMELY safe (as is most of Toronto). It is a great location (ex Allen Gardens, College street cars). But if you are the type who is afraid of friendly Ryerson University students (the campus is right next to the hotel on Gerard), then stay away.
- The hotel has all the amenities one could hope for (AC, ironing board and iron, coffe maker, bedside reading lamps, cable, alarm clock). The rooms are clean. However, if you are the type who gets queasy over a plastered wall, a scratched table or a rusty rad then you should not travel at all. Just stay at home.
- The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast (I had toasted raisin bagels with coffee and bran cereal with milk) with a free newspaper.
- I can imagine that the hotel could be noisy during the summer when it is full, but you would have the option of running the 9000 btu AC unit in your room to drown out the noise. I went off season (December) and the hotel was extremely quiet and warm.
- Don't forget to tip the maid.

Room Tip: Just book. All the rooms are equally comfortable.
