Liked: Kitchen was a good size, quad rooms were reasonable.

Disliked: Moodiness of cook in the kitchen one morning when 10 orders came in - shocking quality of food compared to other mornings. 8 bed dorm which the size of room would have been better suited to 6 - no room for luggage at all. Had to switch rooms mid stay - not really helpful. Tax hit on arrival - price on the website should include everything - no mention on booking info huge extra cost. Breakfast not included with all rooms

Liked: I liked the fact that the staff was very helpful and that the location was very convenient to everything, from the harbor to yonge and dundas square, the mall. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Even though check out is at 11 they will let you hang around for a little while just in case your flight may be a little later. I would definitely stay there again.

Disliked: I didnt like the fact that since i wasnt a member I had to pay an extra 20$.

Liked: I liked the rooftop.

Disliked: I didn't like the loud music all the time. It was too loud to talk or just to read. The burners in the kitchen were almost all broken and the toiltes didn't work properly. People in the 'lounge' hang around with their laptop, no one talked to each other.
