    Staying Downtown on the Cheap


    The accomodations here are very plain, almost Spartan. Don't expect amenities like a pool, spa, gym, or even a lounge. But if you want to stay downtown, without spending big bucks, and just need a place to sleep, then this is it.

    Most who stay here are on a tight budget; they tend to be younger people, including many students. Some remain here for extended periods, so the hotel does have a pretty nice kitchen. Someone is always cooking up something good.

    Unique Quality: Location, location, location.

    Directions: Just south of the intersection of Jarvis St. & Gerrard St. East (near Allan Gardens). If using the subway, go to the Dundas, College, or Sherbourne station.

Downtowner Inn Toronto for £177 for 7nights

Is this in a good location?
For me a single traveller it seems v good price considering its got a bathroom,microwaveoven/mayb a kitchenette. As eating alone can be a problem

Should i go for this place?

Ive never been away in hostels before , i priced global village in toronto to be £94 for a week, but sharing with ppl and not having a bathroom may.
The downtowner sounds v good to me, whats everyone else think, is it recommended for what it is and the location.

If so it would cost me total of £500 for a weeks holiday, which seems v reasonable

Doing a google on it gives nothing but negative reviews, about it being dirty. Check out The Grange Hotel - it has kitchenettes. I know that Suet and Imaniac stayed there, it was cheap and close to downtown and lots of activities.

Hey man,

Tripadvisor is a great way to ferret things out. You can usually email the folks that put the reviews on there for more info.

hmm reviews show i shouldnt go to the downtowner inn, infact some of them said you were far away from the attractions - 30min drive to cn tower.

I want to be it poss to walk to alot of the attractions, or would i def need to use the subway system?

What places would be a good location, and then i can look at what accommodation is in that area & compare prices. have tried hostels with private rooms but have to pay double and isnt much difference to a hotel price

What about Bond Place. has good reviews. anyone know how long it is walking to some of the attractions of toronto from here?

Same for the Grange Hotel & Days Hotel? i checked sites that showed u distances, and the furthest distance to a place was about 2.5miles which isnt bad.would this be about right, i wouldnt mind walking that.

From taking Suet & Imaniac to The Grange, I had checked it out and it was quite close to Queen or Dundas, where you can get a streetcar. Sure you can walk it. Not sure how long, because lots of things to stop and see, as well as traffic lights in the way. However, you can hop on a street car on Spadina and whip around a lot closer, or walk. Close to the Kensington Market which is interesting to check out, and grab a bite to eat. Or Chinatown.
