"Great place for traveller's on a budget"
This place was an excellent choice for my fellow traveller and I. We were on a budget and were only going to spend two nights in Toronto. We had limited time, and wanted to see most of the city. We didn't want to drive everywhere, and wanted to walk around and see what the city had to offer. This place allowed us to do all of that. The University is […] located right in the heart of downtown. A few blocks away, there's plenty of restaurants, nightlife, and gorgeous sights to see. Traveling was extremely easy as we did most of it by foot, and we rarely used our car. The only downside to that, we had to park at a parking lot that was $12 for two nights, and the car had to be out of the garage by 8am on the last day. The things that could use improvement: More comfortable beds, better sheets, Wi-FI needs to be added to each floor. If these are "must haves" for you, then this isn't the place for you to stay.

"I had a great time!"
What a lovely place it was! I really enjoy it. It reminded me of undergrad and the price was awesome. I am thankful to have stayed there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Toronto is so cute!"
Went from LA for a festival and thought it would be comforting to stay in a dorm since I live in a dorm at home. Love the view from my room and all the trees. Wifi could be better though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Safe, convenient, clean"
The dorm is centrally located in the heart of Toronto. The rooms, halls, bathrooms were clean and quiet. Very affordable rates. Friendly staff. WiFi not available in the rooms but if you bring an ethernet cable you can hook up in your room. Convenient parking garage nearby. Walking distance to Chinatown, Kensington Market, Bata Shoe Museum and more. […] Toronto Bike Share stations nearby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"location and price"
It is a college dorm, a bed, a desk and closet. Be aware of the towel supply as they only provide one medium length bath towel for your stay, no additional or exchange for a fresh one after use. The library is next door and you can access their pc. The public bath room is not well maintained. If one wants to save money or just needs a place to sleep, […] that is it, you can have your own room locked. Location is good as the bus stop is about 200 feet from the building.

"Cheap and great location!"
It was just what I needed, a bed to sleep at night and it was close to everything I needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is a good place for the money you pay."
Reminds me of my residence life when I was student. For the money you pay, it is a good place. Showers are not clean and they don't provide enough towels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's a place to sleep"
It was exactly what you would expect for the price. It was extremely ordinary - just a clean and tidy room, really. There were shared bathrooms which may not be for everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
There is air conditioning, but the dim staff member didn't know how it worked. Our room was boiling - well over 30 Celsius - the whole night. Place was clean and conveniently located, though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What did I expect for $40"
Staff were pleasant and helpful. Facilities were well maintaned. Beds were horrible. I would have been more comfortable sleeping on concrete.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was very basic very far from the washrooms the fridge was packed with lot of bags. Very close to downtown could walk to all the venues that I wanted. The front desk staff was very helpful. I will stay there again but be a little closer to the bathrooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive room in the city"
Bed was a little hard but the room was clean and close to the subway.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place to for the price and location. Not the place for your girlfriend or wife.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice spot for walking and sightseeing"
Room is small but the price was rightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not that great, but amazing price."
First of all, when you pay like 40$ a night, you have to expect it to be a not so great experience. Like the bed were unconfortable, room had a smell and was not so clean. Not having change machines, nor soap, in the laundry room is a bit of a bummer. Plus, the hotel is qui in a dark neighborhood that do not have public transit close nearby after about […] 2 AM. So yeah, the whole expreience could be a lot better, but you have to remind yourself that the price for a night is only 40$. So, you have to live with that. on a plus side, the staff is super friendly and helpful. :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too bad"
The price is reasonable specially if you want to be close to U of T. The share washroom is sometimes annoying and some of bathrooms don't have hot water. The air conditioners in rooms don't have temperature controlling system, so it can be too cold. Also, There is no everyday cleaning service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to great shopping and restaurants"
Great place for a single traveller on a budget. I hope the air conditioner is working when I stay there in July.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap sleep for a night out in Toronto"
Great clean place to sleep and super cheap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a night or two"
I would recommend this anyone looking to save some cash who only require the room for a night or two. The beds were super comfy, but they got the job done. The facilities are old but clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheapest of Toronto Downtown"
The room is more than enough if all you want is a place to sleep. It's cheap, and close to everything you need. You have the tramway and taxis all over the place, which means you don't even need a car from there. We even walked on foot to the Rogers Center and CN Tower, and it took us around 15 min.Genuine Expedia guest review
If you don't mind dorm style living it is very inexpensive and close to everything downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"University living re-experienced"
This hotel reminded me of my time in university residence, it fulfilled its purpose but was nothing special. The university was about a 30 minute walk to the Rogers Center, as the purpose of our visit was to watch the Toronto Blue Jays it worked nicely.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's a dormitory."
You can't beat the value if you just want a place to sleep for the night. No TV, or clock radio, but is clean, basic, and quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for!"
Small towels, distant bathrooms, ... What you would expect in a dorm.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was small, under equipped (1 small towel, a sheet and light coverlet, and flat pillow.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Was hopeful the residence was "apartment style".."
The room itself was rather spacious, but the bed was far too old and bowed severely underneath me. The men's washroom was on the opposite end of the floor and it took me a lot of wandering to find it. The open grill above the door meant I could hear conversations in adjacent rooms at all hours. Was value for the low rate achieved? Just barely.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very bad experience :("
Beds were not comfortable and made a lot of noise. The staff did not know much about the area. They told me that park your car in the street after 9pm and move it to parking at 8am. In the morning I saw a 30$ fine because I did not have a street parking pass. I wanted to extend my stay in this residence and they told me to check out at 11:00 am and […] come back at 3:00 pm to check in again. Overall, the building was not clean and I am so sorry for UofT students who live at this residence. I would not recommend it to anyone unless they want a cheap place near UofT.

"Cheap Toronto accommodation"
08/22/14 Fraser B
It's cheap, clean and has good air conditioning- for those looking for budget accommodation in Toronto this fits the bill. Be prepared for a bit of a walk to main attractions- 30-40 mins for CN Tower etc. neighbourhood is nice. All staff were very helpful and you can buy TTC tokens at reception.
"Great location and good value"
08/21/14 Desy33 Gawlay City
Rooms perectly clean and quiet with air con. Perfect standard for the price. Walking distance from China town and little Italy on a safe / nice campus. Shared bathroom as expected but poor canteen facilities even to buy cup of coffee. Near public transport and subway routes also which will bring you straight downtown but approx 40min walk either if you were up for it.
"Good price and location"
08/21/14 Clare198608 Rocca Priora, Italy
The rooms are not very clean (hairs on the floor..definitely not mine!) but the bathrooms were very clean and you have like three showers and five toilets for each floor. The room has a very big window, the bed, a small closet and a table. Breakfast wasn't very good (the sweets) but there's a big choice (eggs toasts cereals milk juices etc). Good position, very close to kensington market (that i loved) and UoT of course. I could definitely go back!
"A great stay for a great price"
08/09/14 Jeremy H London, United Kingdom
I stayed at the university during the summer months while coaching volleyball programmes. While the rooms could get warm, the facilities were perfect for our needs. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we were never disturbed by noise or students. I highly recommend this for budget travellers in the Toronto area.

"False Fire Alarm - Not Sure Everyone Heard It"
07/21/14 BrockDaBadger Elgin, Texas
This is the second time I've stayed at New College Residence - this time with my nine year old granddaughter. Price for a private room with two beds was around $450 USD for a week, which is a good deal for Toronto - it's a college dorm room. Common area and bathrooms were clean and access is controlled by electronic chips to enter doors and elevators, as well as a standard key to enter your room. One of the nights there was a false fire alarm early in the morning. My granddaughter did not hear the alarm and if I hadn't been awake preparing for our daily activities, I too might have slept through it. The alarms seem to be at the ends of the building on each floor when, in my opinion, they should have alarms within the rooms or more located on each of the floors. This is not safe: University of Toronto should fix this issue ASAP just in case there is a real fire in the future.
"Downtown, High speed internet, safe, affordable!"
07/11/14 Chhanhima Aizawl, India
I stayed here for 4 nights in June 2014 and i am more than impressed. $10 buffet breakfast on the cafeteria which was very good. I thought it would be noisy as id expected young travellers but it was calm n peaceful. Within walking distance from Chinatown and places like Rogers stadium, Cn tower, harbour front etc. Room was more than okay for one person, more so for me as i was out during daytime. Bathrooms were clean, atleast over the floor i was staying. Internet was superfast, tho i wish theyd Wifi. Would i come back here again, DEFINITELY! ps:check in and out was in a breeze. My only complaint would be, absence of wifi and having to buy internet cable at $5.
"very good stay!!!"
07/01/14 Brian B Buffalo, New York
Good place to stay here. We were exploring the city and basically just needed a place to shower, change and sleep so this was perfect as it was cheap. Everyone was very friendly. Beds were pretty stiff but nothing too bad. Free WiFi. Clean bathrooms and showers. Overall it was just about perfect!

Huge spotless room with two twin beds, quiet, super safe building requires a magnetic card to enter, 5 blocks to the subway but the street car passes right at the corner. One-per-floor so-called kitchen has no pots, plates, cups, silverware or microwave, but you can bring your own to use on the stove. Chinatown is just a 2 minute walk away. There's only a large, one gender bathroom at opposite ends of each floor so you might have a long walk. We drove, so had to navigate the U of T website ahead of time to decipher which parking lots were how much, and which ones you can remain in past 6am (there can be a big span in parking fees, so plan ahead). Free internet but $5 for a usb cable if you forget your own. Cheaper than all the other poorly rated places, I highly recommend this facility!

This place has excellent.easy local walking and some sightseeing locales in hand with wonderful onsite personnel that offer a personal touch.ike a disguised parking garage. If you have a car, note that there is no overnight parking on Willcocks street in front of the residence. I parked on Spadina just below Willcocks, where you can park overnight but the meter starts charging at 8 a.m. So you have to get up and move your car or put money in the meter.
