Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed 6 weeks and I can say that Yohan and Sarah are very welcoming and friendly.
    The room is not large but not too smal, it's just enough for one person. It's a confortable bedroom. In my opinion, a desk is missing to complete it.
    The apartment is closed to a bus station and a supermarket, so it's very convenient.
    As I stayed for a long stay, sometimes it was not easy to share the space (kitchen and bathroom) with some guests who stayed in the other double room for 1 or 2 nights.
    To conclude, I had a great time in the place. I would recommend you.
    Thank you again Sarah & Yohan!

  • I am currently booked to stay with Yohan and Sarah for 8 weeks. I was a bit nervous about my 2 month stay in Toronto but my nervousness subsided as soon as I met Yohan. So welcoming and helpful and concerned with keeping me comfortable and happy. Yohan is a text or a call away which makes it so easy to ask any questions I may have.
    The room is small but certainly enough room to keep all the things I need for a couple months. A nice sized dresser and a mirror which makes it easy to get ready for the day.
    The location is great as I am attending Bonnie Gordon College. The school is only a 10 min walk down the street. There is also a Grocery store, Dollar store and drugstore super close
    I am looking forward to the rest of my stay and know how helpful they will be with questions I may have about Toronto and getting around on public transit.

  • My daughter stayed with Johan and Sarah for a month, and found them to be very welcoming and friendly . The room was very clean and well maintained, with full access to the kitchen .we would have no hesitation in recommending this venue for a stay and would certainly be keen to stay here again .

  • I felt like home at Yohan and Sarah's place, it's spotless clean when I first checked in, everything you need is available there including kitchen tools, sleeping quality is great, temperature is perfect as the place has a central A/C for the hot and humid summer days (and nights) and on top of that, Yohan and Sarah were superbly friendly with me and I am both lucky and happy to (email hidden).

  • My stay at the home of Sarah and Yohan was very positive, really loved the time I spent with them in Toronto, are attentive, friendly and very accommodating.

  • The space itself is dim and cramped—not recommended for anyone who is tall or claustrophobic—but comfortable. Breakfast was delightful with the smell of fresh bread filling the air.

    Response from Yohan & Sarah:

    It's unfortunate that Ryan didn't mention his discomfort to us while he was here - infact quite the contrary. Most of our guests would disagree. We're glad he enjoyed the breakfast though!

  • Another great week with Yohan and Sarah! I always enjoy how clean and cozy their house is. This was the first time I have stayed in this particular room, and I enjoyed it very much. It had plenty of space to sleep and get my work done.

    June 2013
  • This was my second time at Yohan's house and it was excellent, just like the first time. Everything was clean, the food was great and the bed was perfect. On my next trip to Toronto I'll make sure I will stay at this house again.

    June 2013
  • I stayed with Yohan and Sarah for 5 months. To say they are great hosts would be an understatement. They both truly go out of their way to make you feel comfortable in their home and make sure you have everything you need. It didn't take long for me to feel at ease in their space, which was clean and warm. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Yohan and Sarah to anyone staying in the Toronto area and know where I will be staying when I am in the area again.

  • Best boarding experience ever. Everything was spotless, and every possible detail arrayed to perfection. I can not think of a more pleasant stay.

    They were also very accommodating to timing of my travel plans, and even brought down breakfast in the morning.
