"nice and simple"

Stayed one night at the countyard hostel in Toronto. Price 95$ Free Wifi that work very well at all time. Note: During TO Film festival all hotels were book so I gave this hostel a try, and I am not disappointed. Room: Refurbish furniture, clean (no smell or humidity) and simple-nothing over the top. Was in room number 102. Bathroom: connecting to room (deluxe room with private bath) very practical, space, and clean. Kitchen and other parts of the hostel: hall was quiet (can not pronounce myself on other parts as I did not use them) Host-front “desk”: Well there is none, but I was able to meet a staff member when I arrived (Nikky) and she was very lovely and helpful with all my questions about Toronto, transport etc… Location: Great great great to go Down Town Toronto with the Street Car (#505, max 10 minutes and on Queen st the car street run 24h). From the outside of the place look sketchy and one really start to wonder about their hostel choice but once inside, all is fine. Parking: There is NO parking as advertise. One has to use Public Garage parking. The one under FreshCO. (corner Parliament and Dundas) is 1 minute walking distance and not expensive for TO standard : 5$ for 6am to 7pm and 5$ 7pm to 6am. If you look for hotel service-like with 24/7 front desk and such amenities, Courtyard living hostel is not the place for you - it’s a hostel as stated in it name. If you don’t need something too fancy, care about the place being clean and a practical location – it do the job. I recommend :) Business September 2014

We spent 1 nignt in the hostel but I think that is more a guest house. We had a room with a private bathroom. Everything is brand new and clean. I would spend there 1 week if I have a chance instead of booking a hotel. The location is perfect, 10 mins walk to Dundas, parking lot is close by, nice restaurants to dine down the street. They offer good coffee in the morning.

This is not a bad hostel at all, but at the same time it is not great. I am going to start by saying it is very well decorated and obviously newly refurbished house turned into a hostel. But they advertise things that they just don't have like a shared lounge/ tv area or we couldn't find it. The kitchen had no utensils apart from a pan and giant serving spoon. The location is very close to downtown and all sights too see, although it doesnt appear to be the best looking place at night and would probably catch a cab. Parking is an additional surcharge yet I have no idea why as it is in a lane way drive which cant hold more than 3 vehicles. If you are put in room 101 request a different room as you are right next to the electronic door with keypad that bangs when opening and closing and if your a light sleeper you are woken up alot. There is no staff member on premises and you have to call the manager if you need anything or catch them in the evening while they check in for 10 minutes or so. It sounds like I am not recommending this place which is far from the truth it was a nice hostel with a good little coffee machine to use in the mornings at a good price but these are a few of the things that need to be changed to make it alot better.
