This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I am glad you have asked me to provide my views on my stay at York University Homes.

Though the location is very useful for people having business at York University but for this reason the managers / owners of property shortchange the users.

The property Manager by the name Mike was very dishonest and did not even show the facility till he has taken full advance and then put me up in clumsy 6' by 10' storage room and only after lot of follow up, i was given a room on the first floor which in terms of room quality was ok but with no airconditioning and ventilation and considering the fact that it was nearly 29 degree centigrade ambient temperature, it was impossible to spend time in the room during day time and could barely sleep for the 5 nights that i spent in this facility. The owner / manager, when requested for airconditioning refused to switch the A/C on and asked for additional $20 per day for the same stating that A/C would e switched on only if the indoor temperature is beyond 30 degree centigrade.

Overall I found this to be a typical example of dishonest practices where a traveller after booking the facility and paying full amount in advance has no other choice but is forced to live with the miserable conditions. I can under understand if such practices happen in other part of word but finding this in Canada, a country which is known for its honest business practices, was very demoralizing.

The same sentiment was also conveyed by almost everyone with whom I interacted during my stay and as such few residents left midway during there stay despite of paying up the full tariff in advance.

Overall the experience was miserable and i would not recommend anyone to make such stay arrangements.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

it was the worst hostel experience ever! the room was disgusting and completely different than what i saw online! (in that sense I feel quite cheated). horrible bed, horrible bathroom, everything was horrible. The landlord was so rude as well. instead of saying sorry about this, he blamed other people in the hostel and said "the dirtiness is because of them" the room was just stinky and dusty. there was a kitchen like thing which is again extremely disgusting.
i do not recommend to anyone to book a room from that place again. never ever ever!! i even didnt want to give a star! that room deserves nothing.

I could not saty there but i can say with every sertainity that it couls be the worst place to stay in because they would not respond to your query what so ever. you can easily judge the type of administration this property has gotten.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The pros:
-Free upgrade to room with en suite 3-piece bathroom
-Located on transit route

The cons:
-Sent email requesting confirmation of amount owed and arrival time, reply: call when arrive.
-Waited 15min under porch in rain after calling manager, walking 2-3 blocks to actual location of room at another address.
-Had to present Travellerspoint receipt to show deposit made when full cost of room.
-Previous occupant still sleeping in room. Bedding changed but room not swept/ bathroom cleaned.
-Was not provided wireless network password until request made after first night. Password provided but network inaccessible.
-More-or-less fit bed (I'm only 5'10")
-Thin walls and couple above loud far beyond courteous hours.
-Room cold: tiled basement in early march, heat not on first night with certainty.

In summary: Arrive early, expect wait, walk, and receive possible upgrade if better room available. If it's spartan you seek, it's $20 A NIGHT IN TORONTO. Leave the laptop at home and bring a roll of toilet paper and a power bar (power strip if you're from the US). It is a new house, the bathroom was very nice.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It's a good bargain, but if you are in Toronto to see the sights, too far away from downtown (an hour away). You will get the York University Home phone number when you make a reservation, just make sure you call the manager to tell them exactly when you are coming (otherwise you will have to wait... make sure you are not stranded without a phone).

York University Home owns several properties around York University. How clean and quiet the facilities are depends on your housemates, who are mostly there for the long-term. I've seen York University students currently enrolled or on a break, political refugees on welfare program waiting for job placement, and people with regular day jobs. If you are out of luck, the kitchen will be messy, and the bathroom dirty. But that's more the fault of the tenants who don't clean up after themselves. There was a nice Chinese guy who came every day (occasionally every other day), to clean the floors, remove the garbage, etc.

Well-heated in the winter, and the shower works well.

The walls are rather thin and there is a gap between the door and the floor, so it can get noisy if your neighbor's constantly talking on the phone or people outside are talking (even on a different floor).

Chinese markets have cheap fruits and grocery, so if you want to prepare your own meals you can pay a visit to the Chinese market. There's one on Jane and Finch (from the hostel, go down south to Finch, and then turn right and keep going until you cross Jane, before you cross is Jane and Finch Mall, and after you cross it is another mall complex to your left with the Chinese market). About 25~30 minutes to walk there, but you can also take the bus. Just beware that the Jane and Finch area has a bad rep as the most crime-ridden part of Toronto. (If you go in the other direction on Finch toward Finch Station, you will also come across plenty of shops and restaurants.)

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The place is nice and clean. Cheaper then any hotel in Toronto. The whole area is quite calm and peaceful - mostly occupied by York University students. But located way up North - pretty far from everything except York University - it takes a little more then an hour to get to Downtown Toronto by public transport.

Do note the following-

- Room rates are $30/day. If you plan to stay a week or more it is $175/week.
- Asking rate for a month is $450 - but this can be negotiated. You can find rooms in the same area for around $400/month. Walk around and you will see "Room Available" signboards.
- Instead of paying full amount online, do negotiate after you have checked in if you are staying more then a week or so as you might get a better price.

Basically it's ok for sleeping over. Great if you need to go to York university, otherwise pretty far from anything.
