  • Staff at reception were highly efficient and despite pressure always ready to nasser and help. John, attenting to the Breakfast session had a particularly joyous way to loosen up the athmosphere in the dining lounge.

  • Perfect. I stayed for about a week, staff is constantly circulating to keep the place clean and look after all the tenants. At no time did I (24/M) feel unsafe or uncomfortable, although I'd bring a padlock to lock away valuables in the lockers during the day. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Kitchen functional with all lots of crockery and cutlery to use.

  • Upon arrival, was initially put off by the no shoe policy. But instantly appreciated it because of the cleanliness and the welcoming common area with the endless amount of channels on the TV. Did not care for an overtly flirtatious and argumentative, 19 year old employee, who hit on every female who walked in. His attempts at hospitality quickly crossed the line of professionalism. Lack of paper towels and trash cans in bathrooms was inconvenient. Also, couldn't eat anywhere except for kitchen.

  • This was a very comfortable set up and I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very friendly, but you also had your own space. Plus - you cannot beat the amazing pancakes in the morning!!!!!

  • Not a bad place except for 2 things: one of staff members kept hitting on every female guest he could see and went way beyond what was professional; the place is relatively far from the closest subway stop (10 + minutes walk). I wouldn't want to stay there if I was a woman based on the staff but it's nice that they had a free bbq for everyone on sunday on their deck.

  • Staff are very strict on rules, which felt a bit overbearing at times. They close down the patio and stop consumption of alcohol at 10pm. They sniff water bottles after 10pm to make sure it isn't alcohol, even if you're just quietly on your computer, by yourself, late at night. It was also annoying to have to go up three flights of stairs every time I wanted to have a snack (no eating outside the kitchen/deck on the top floor).
