Great for me... but maybe not for you. Let me explain.
You might not feel safe in the neighborhood. Since my son and I are both over six feet tall and have some experience in less 'polished' urban environments, we did. (That said, we saw nothing approaching criminal activity. What we saw was a lot of the sort of people who require - and in Canada, apparently receive - public housing. Some people aren't comfortable with that. I also can't speak of neighborhoods to the east or south of this one, as we didn't spend time in those areas.)
I don't want a lot of hand holding in a 'hostel' environment. That worked out, as I never once saw the proprietor or anyone officially associated with this place over my five day stay. When I did have problems (ask for two keys if two people are staying in the room), all I had to do was make a phone call to be talked through the problem. Personally, I didn't mind that a bit.
Lastly, #9 is a basement room, and as such is a always very very dark (the window in the description is a basement window, guys), dank and oppressive. I would have preferred a room with some air and light, but then the front porch was very comfortable and provided those qualities when I wanted them.
But, for a place to crash with quick access to downtown and public transportation, this place was fine. And the True Love Cafe two doors down, a great breakfast hang out run by two very friendly and helpful people, made this location livable and enjoyable.
Room #9 at Mina's was just as pictured: clean and comfortable. It was great to meet Arya and he was easy to contact. I would stay there again.
Place was pretty good - room was pretty big (bigger than it looks in pictures) and so was the bathroom. All the amenities worked well (laundry, internet, fridge) and all the other people staying there were friendly. Only problems I really had were the above level floor was creaky and the room doesn't get much natural light. Nice quick walk downtown but all the locals told me that Dundas & Sherbourne isn't a great area to be in but I didn't have any problems.
We stayed here for a week. This place is very close to downtown and found very good eating places around. If you want to go to Harbour front center, bus stops infront of your house. Outside locality of the apartment looks little bit different but there was no problem at all. Even car rental place was 1 block away from house on carlton street(who would like to rent a car to roam). We did rent car as we went to Niagara falls on car because of time constraints. Wifi was not connecting first day but later it worked very good. Arya/Edwin was very helpful and quickly responding during our stay.
