We had a great time staying at Ben's place for 3 days! The free parking is at a public park next to his apartment and we had no trouble keeping our car there. Toronto's bike share also worked well for us, and a station is a 10 minute walk from Ben's house. We only saw Ben briefly during our stay, but he was very welcoming.
Ben is a very nice host, the place is very close to downtown and the pub/bar on the corner makes very nice breakfast!
I stayed with Ben for six weeks while I worked on a teaching contract in Toronto. Ben was kind and easily approachable; we had many great conversations during my stay. I can't imagine anyone not getting along with Ben! I also appreciate the nice bottle of wine he left when I arrived; it quickly became a favourite of mine!
The room was clean and comfortable - and isolated on it's own floor for an extra touch of privacy - it was perfect for my needs. The apartment is a good size for two people and the kitchen has a fantastic gas stove that I enjoyed using. And the location, well, it was perfect! Right around the corner from King West and just about every Toronto attraction you can think of, and only a few minutes walk to the King or Bathurst street cars.
Ben definitely takes pride in his place and I definitely recommend it!
Ben is a perfect host! In the house you can find everything you need, if not Ben is always ready to help!!!
He is a kind and polite person, always helpful and ready to give advice about the city and all that you need to know.
We talked a lot and had great time together, dinner at home (hope he liked our dishes!) went out for beer, cinema etc..
The house is clean and the room is big enough for a couple like us, with a large wardrobe and a lot of natural light from outside.
It's a perfect place in the heart of Downtown Toronto, everything is near, such as markets, restaurants and nightlife (bar, pub,club..), colse to streetcars and buses stops.
We recommend Ben, because he is fantastic!!
Although I only met the friendly Ben once during my pleasant stay he was more than able to help me out with anything with a quick text.
I was happy with the private room and would definitely consider staying here again.
As our first experience with AirBNB, my girlfriend and I were interested to see how this would go. Suffice to say, Ben provided a fantastic experience! He provided an enjoyable place to stay with all of the amenities that one could require. Knowledgable about local tourist attractions and happy to help in any way he could. The room was comfortable and clean. Kitchen was nice to have although we did not use it much. Location is fantastic. Two minute walk from the street car that takes you right down town. Minutes walk from all sorts of common needs. Overall, very happy. Thank you very much Ben!
Our 4 days at Ben's place was perfect for us given its great location and reasonable price. We appreciated flexible checkin and checkout times to make the most of our stay!
