"Great location, great price"
Can't beat this deal. Nice rooms. Perfect if you don't mind sharing restrooms with other guests. It appeared that there were university students living there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You get what you pay for. Still, overall it was not bad at all. Looks kind of beat up, but my bed was clean, room was clean, showers were ok. Free breakfast was decent. Location was really convenient, which was great for somebody who just wants to walk around downtown Toronto alot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great option close to centre of downtown"
Best option for backpackers near the downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sleep Cheap in Toronto"
The Neill-Wycik is a college residence, with a difference. It is run as a cooperative by the students, and from May to August they open it as a hostel. The variously-sized rooms and suites are arranged in pods or corridors of six rooms each with two small but private bathrooms. Ours was just across the hall and we had to wait for it only once in four […] days. If that had been a problem, there was another five or six steps away. The rooms are not air-conditioned, but each has a table fan which, with the fully opened windows, kept the room comfortable. On the top floor is an air-conditioned TV and computer lounge, with strong wi-fi connections and a snack bar which served various foods. They will pack a full or half bag lunch for guests at very reasonable prices. Breakfast (included) in the first-floor cafe consisted of cereals, beverages (apple, orange and cranberry juices-not just juice drinks), teas or coffee, pastries (muffins, croissants etc,) which are baked in-house , yogurt, fresh fruit and granola bars. (Choice of four items with each breakfast), They serve till 11 am and will pack up your choices for lunch later. The front desk is staffed 24-/7 and was quick to bring extra towels or soap, as well as to take care of any complaints. located a five-minute walk between two streetcar lines, the Neill-Wycik was a real find. Would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location - walking distance to shops, train and city bikes, nice view. Good service - checked in early, staff were friendly but all seemed to be students so occasionally got distracted from customers with socialising. Poor room cleanliness - floor was dirty/dusty, bed had someone else's hairs on it. Poor beds - in a two single bed room one was […] a cheap mattress, the other a springy, lumpy foldout/camp bed. Adequate amenities - shared bathrooms as expected, but faucet handles coming off in one's hand, a door that stuck shut, taps that couldn't be turned off completely, ratty old towels provided. There is a shared kitchen too, but no utensils or supplies are provided. Good breakfast - free breakfast was limited in the amount you could have, but the options were reasonable.

"Amazing roof deck, close to attractions"
Rooms at Neill-Wycik are very basic but have everything you need. Staff at breakfast were very helpful. Roof deck views are beautiful and something to see. Only about five mins to Dundas and the Eaton Centre. Would stay again :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for short term stay in downtown"
I was in town for one night stay and needed a bed/shower. This hotel served that purpose.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location & fantastic staff."
I stayed for 3 nights. I loved this hotel for the value of money I spent & will definitely stay there again. The only negative part is that shared washroom is not very clean & seems not hygienic. Hope hotel can work on it to make it a perfect place for backpackers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very near to Downtown, no need to pay for public transport as most places are within walking distance. Generous breakfast included with stay. Friendly, helpful staff. All at a very reasonable price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
was an okay for the price you payGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Avoid this place at all cost"
This is dirty old apartment at a dirty community. I would rather sleep on street than sleeping here. I left this place in 5 min without getting my money back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"very close to downtown and great staff"

Economic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Une réception digne d'un vrai hotel... apres, on se sent vite dans une résidence étudiante, mais pour une nuit et pour le prix payé, c'est largement suffisant... La terrasse sur le toit est simplement exceptionnelle !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classic Student Housing"

If you want to experience how Canadian students live - have to live - than stay here. it's a big complex building, staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. check out the rooftop terrace! they have parking lots as well. WiFi is not included - 4 $Cad per 24 hours
"Dirty and with rats"
07/19/14 Renata d
The worst experience of my life. The place is very dirty. I had a reservation for one month, but I stayed for few days. I gave up staying there when I saw a rat inside my room. I Wish I had never been there...
"Very, Very Budget but breakfast is good.... Bring a fan too!"
07/16/14 Coley82 Chelmsford, United Kingdom
I had 2 days in Toronto after a lovely trip to Vancouver so I booked some budget accomodation to save a few pennies. When I arrived the staff were very informative (if a bit militant) and they gave me details of my room/breakfast/wi-fi etc. The rooms itself was very small, a hard bed and a pillow which was about as soft as a breeze block. The bathrooms were basic but clean. I was impresssed with the breakfast and a choice of 4 items from cereals, yoghurts, croissants etc. which is why I have given this an 'average' rating.
07/05/14 Tiffany H Purcellville, Virginia
I wouldn't stay there again. I stayed in the 22nd floor and the A/C didn't worked and it was really really hot in the room. Also my bed wasn't really clean there were hairs on my pillow and I didn't feel comfortable with that. What i can say is that the breakfast is pretty good and I liked it that the reception is 24h open :) Also the location was pretty good :)

stayed there for 3 nights during world pride (late June). The location is really central. its only a 5 minute walk to the gay village, and 10 minute walk to Dundas square (the main square in Toronto). The room itself was high up on the 16th floor, with excellent views of downtown! The room itself was very average. Nothing to rave about. But I didn't expect too much. We stayed in a two bed room with shared bathroom. The bathrooms was in ok condition. The hallways were a little dirty. You get a free breakfast, and have a choice of 4 options for breakfast (the options include coffee). so chose right so you don't get hungry again quickly! lol. I chose 2 bagels, yogurt and coffee, and this lasted me until lunch. Bit pricey at $40/bed though. Staff were nice and friendly (some of them were easy on the eye...). Would stay here again. Best thing about it is the location and free breakfast!

The location is excellent but the whole building is a little run down. It's a student residence and no hotel. Cleanliness could be better. WiFi only free on 22nd floor, otherwise it's 4 CAD per day or 10 CAD per week. Breakfast is ok, but you can only select 4 items (e.g., coffee, bagel, cornflakes, banana)
"Great Value for the Price"
07/03/14 Carolyn T Edmonton, Alberta
Great location and value if you need a place to sleep. Washrooms are clean, showers are hot, people aren't too noisy, and breakfast is included which is a nice plus. The lounge upstairs has internet which was perfect since we were there for business.
"wouldn't stay here again"
06/23/14 Sarah C Duesseldorf, Germany
We (2 students) rented a private double room with 2 single beds, which only had one bed and one mattrass. The double sheets were already used and everything was very dirty. The bathrrom was ok as well as the breakfast and the staff, but the room really was unexceptable. There also was no way to change, the only help they could offer was room- and insectspray.
"the worst hostel I have ever stay in my life"
06/19/14 Alicja K
They should change the name from hotel to hostel but still the place will be not acceptable. Dirty rooms with old damaged furnitures, very old damaged bads. This place should be closed for the renovation.
"Worst Ho(s)tel I've ever been"
02/23/14 Colin F Aesch, Switzerland
The only good thing is the terrace with its view. But after staying there for a few nights, I had to change to another hostel (HI Toronto), since I definitely had enough of it. It's very dirty, not only in the bathroom with mold, but also in the common area, which is the only place where there is Wifi, and it's packed. Basically it's only a bunch of ripped, old, dirty couches in a room. My single room barely fitted a bed, a small desk and my suitcase. The neighbourhood is close to downtown, but it's not a nice neighbourhood, especially if it gets dark. If you can, stay at another place for the same price! I was happy switching to the HI Toronto and had a great time after that.
