"Great hostel"
So nice! We were expecting to use the shared bathroom, but the staff offered us a private one for free since the shared one was being cleaned. This was our first experience staying at a hostel, and it was great. Better price than a hotel, for a more unique and homey experience. The staff could be reached at any time by picking up a phone at the door, and they allowed us to check in early for a small fee, which was wonderful. It was nice being able to shower first thing after arriving. Shower had great water pressure and more than enough warm water- a must! There was literally no room between the toilet and the wall, so we had to sit on it sideways. It was fine. Bed was a little hard, but I managed to find a comfortable position and woke up with no pains. Also, the walls were quite thin, so don't choose this place as a love nest. Overall- clean, very friendly, and great price. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to save money. Between this and a discount bus ticket, you can make a really affordable trip to Toronto.

"Budget hostel - good value for the low price"
Don't expect luxury or even mediocrity, but for the price and the location, I'd say this is a good deal. The rooms are very small but clean, and the beds are comfortable enough. I think some listings say the rooms have shared bathrooms, but at least all the rooms I saw had a toilet and a shower in the room - and I do mean *in* the room (a stall for the shower, but the toilet is just sitting in the corner), so probably not ideal if you're sharing a room with someone. There was plentiful warm water, heating, and WiFi. I didn't interact much with the staff, and they seemed to speak quite limited English, but everything worked how it was supposed to. Note that when you arrive, there might not be anyone at the hostel: you'll need to call them using a phone by the door, they'll give you the door code so you can get inside, and they'll come give you the keys within 5-10 minutes. Chinatown is not the most scenic part of town, but it's safe, quiet (this is definitely not a party hostel), within walking distance of a lot of areas, and the Kensington area that's right next to the hostel is a cute little hipster bubble.

"Poor Choice"
I had ordered a room with a double bed and a private bath with a tub/shower combination and refrigerator. I phoned the manager from the front porch when I arrived and needed to call them again after waiting 20 minutes. I was told they had forgotten about me and would send an attendant right over. The room was small with a cheap shower stall and a toilet IN the room with no partition. There was no refrigerator, as promised. The furniture was cheap and flimsy. The room was extremely hot until about 1 or 2AM. The window could be opened, but there was no screen. There was no air conditioning. There was no maid service. When I requested new sheets and towels after 3 days, the attendant told me that I should not need new ones. She gave me new sheets and towels only after I insisted. The property location is good, near Chinatown and Kensington market. It's on a streetcar line. The public transportation in Toronto is good and reliable. Staying at this property was quite a challenge. I would not stay here again nor recommend it to others.

"Like being at home!"
I've stayed at this hotel before and as always, walk away satisfied. It's clean, it comes with the basics and the people that run this hostel type hotel are so nice and hospitable. Very quiet at night. I love it. And I'm a single female so that says a lot.

It was adequate for the price. We did not actually stay in the hotel showed on the picture. The owners have a few "houses" and we were brought to another house. Not happy about that. Room small, but clean. Thank goodness it wasn't hot as there was no air and we would have boiled!

Showed up in Toronto at the Dundas address and was whisked away by car to another location by Mike. During stay, was awoken as late as 3 AM by other travellers checking in and there is busy construction next door. My room door was not silent when opened and was never fixed.

"Cheap place with convenient location"
Toronto Travellers Home is a very cheap place staffed by helpful staff. The room and living environment are all very basic which makes it a great place to crash if you are a back packer. For those looking to stay for more than 3 days Travellers Home may be too plain and uncomfortable. The place is also within walking distance (1-2 km) of a number of famous places in Toronto, including the Tornoto Art Gallery, Royal Museum, and Queen Park.

"Unorganized hostel, interesting location"
The hostel is located in the middle of China town, which was interesting and fine. However, the hostel itself was super unorganized. We arrived at 2 and check in is from 1230 till 1130pm, but we needed to wait half an hour for them to clean our room. We also reserved a room wit a shared bathroom but ended up with a private bathroom, which just meant there was a toilet and shower in our room seperated from our bed by a curtain. Also, the workers asked us each time we walked out the door if we were checking out, which was kind of rude since we were in Toronto to explore and relax, but it just seemed like they wanted to get rid of us the entire time.

"Better spend some more for nice stay."
The stairs where to small have to take of shoes go on slippers bigger size not availabel. Open toilet only curtain . No breakfast. Not good for people over 55 years. Clean but to much money for poor quality better spend some more money for something better . When you arrive there is somebody to see you. Later you will never see anybody only by telephone. They tell you one free call to your family but not work to Europe.

"Okay to stay at but do not expect much"
This is neither a hotel nor a hostel; rather, it is a (overpriced) short term furnished room rental. Do not expect much service from the management either- I was waiting on my airline to deliver my suitcase (since my suitcase was sent to a different city at first) and when it was delivered, nobody from Toronto Travellers Home notified me. They just left it in storage. Someone could have put a note under my door.

Just a bunch of tiny plywood rooms cut out of an old house. Some had a toilet and shower (cheap plastic), but no sink. Some no toilet or shower. Comfortable enough. A very basic place right at chinatown - great location... Cheaper to show up than to book online... Bargain a bit! It's that kind of place.

"Worst experience with a rude owner"
It was my worst experience ever. This place is not suitable for human stay, basically it is the lowest standard I have ever seen. Room are dirty, no regular cleaning, heating system is not functioning properly making you expsed to cold throughout the night. The owner is only one who speaks some English, the rest only Chinese. And to make it worse , the owner is absolutely rude person, very unhelpful, I came to find out about this when I had problem in the washroom and I rang him to fix it, he was not only unhelpful but extremely rude as to refuse to talk over the phone with the only reply is "no phone calls:!!. Overall it was bad enough experience, to the extent that I had to leave to another hotel before the chechout date.

"Can't satisfy a man with simple needs."
To be honest, I am a person that is easily satisfied, just give me a place to stay in with simple facilities then I'll be good and happy. Last night made me thought twice about myself, as it was beyond what I expected, in a bad way. The price I paid was not much, so I wasn't expecting much really, but really this place just isn't up to par. Upon arrival, I was "welcomed" by some papers stuck on the door of the house, which instructed me to pick up a phone that rings a person in charge of the place. The person then told me to wait as he will be sending a person to the house to deal with the administrative bits. Before I get to this part, it must be noted that there is an immediate feeling of fear at a place that is beyond unorganised and messy, and you'll be standing there in silence. It is creepy and just really uncomfortable. Then this person came over, and was completely not professional at all. He stumbled upon papers to find what's going on and looked puzzled when he saw what's written on the paper. At last, while cracking jokes, he somehow figured out what to do, which was to take a key and open a room to check if there's anyone living in there, and that there is the check-in procedure. The room was completely filled with the smell of bleach, with dust almost all around the place. To be honest, if you're here for one night then I think it's fine, but really the procedures and the people made it really unwelcoming to the point where it starts to get creepy.

Then he tries to swindle me more money for the room and says I was not charged tax, I show him the email which stated clearly that this was the full amount you are to pay for your room.

"Good location, clean room, noisy."
I was met by Mi who checked me in and explained everything to me. She has a great sense of humour and I caught onto her accent fairly quickly! My room is clean and bed is comfortable. I have my own bathroom and it is also clean, small but nice to have my own. There was some confusion with other renters after I checked in. People arriving here but should be at another house, sent here but booked elsewhere. Mi seemed to work it out and satisfy all involved. I took a short walk to Dundas and Spadina and picked up some Chinese food (this is the middle of Chinatown) and it's so exciting to be here. But.......My room was right near the front door and it's very noisy there. You hear the squeaky door open and close every time someone comes and goes. People were still showing up after 11pm(quiet time) and then the night manager was talking on his phone, on a personal call, until midnight. Then someone showed up at 3:20 am for a room. I didn't get a lot of sleep here. If it wasn't for the noise, I would stay here again.

"Do not stay here"
Our stay turned out ok but they are tiny rooms with minimal hot water for showering. All the plumbing looks dodgy and it seems more like a home where illegal immigrants would stay rather than paying customers. The advertisement says private bathroom but this simply means the toilet is next to the bed and not in its own room. People should not stay here and it should not even be up on these sites. The owner is an asian man who speaks minimal English and communication with him proved difficult.

Worst hotel, Dirty, bad smell everywhere, nothing is clean. You have to pay extra for parking. It is better to sleep inside the car rather than book these hotels.

My spouse and I were heading down to the Jays game and needed a cheap, clean place to stay after the game. It was a safe walk to and from the Rogers centre, with cheap ($12/day) parking down the street. Nothing fancy, but we got what we paid for - a clean bed in a room for a few hours sleep. Don't expect much. The owner / manager was very helpful.
