Liked: It's located by U of T, which is a beautiful place to wander about if you have the time. The rooms are somewhat nice, there was a few stains on the wall but I don't expect much from a college dorm.

Disliked: The washrooms aren't the best. You only have access to a communal shower, so I'd recommend bringing a pair of flip flops to avoid fungal infections. The washrooms also have a weird smell to them sometimes.

Liked: The proximity to downtown and public transit like the TTC subway and trollies

Disliked: The common rooms were a little too common no rules for who gets the TV and which channel eg. first come first serve? Also how late you can cook a meal and common room kitchen had not any general utensils like a can opener ??? No public use computers they assume you will bring your own lap top or tablet device .
