Liked: NW is a residence for Ryerson Uni. That sums up what to expect from it. The rooms are alright. The best parts are the rooftop (go at sunset for spectacular views of the downtown core), it's proximity to the downtown core (right off Yonge st), and its free breakfast (four items, like juice or coffee and bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt). Its a private place with a good view, a place to lay down for the night.

Disliked: The building is old. Mostly needs major renovations. Somewhat dirty, but not bad (hair in common shower, some dirt on floors, etc). Its all very 1990s student living. No sense of community or common area (only the cafeteria, which is closed in evenings). Not a "fun" hostel, but is a place to have a private room and sleep.

Liked: Relatively close to nearby shopping mall.

Disliked: Poor cleanliness. There was no microwave in the kitchen for the units in my section of rooms. You had to use the one downstairs in the cafe. The water fountain was down. One staff member (the security guard) could not do check outs for people so there was a bit of a wait to check out.

Backpacking / gap year

Liked: The breakfast was good

Disliked: The rooms were far too hot and we were on the supposed cool side. No fans or air-con. The shower was in desperate need of a clean, hardly anyone was in our block but still it was a state. I feel sorry for the students who have to go here.
