Well my first response is I wish I had found a better Airbnb place then this and should have read more about the place. It appears that Vivian is never in Canada that her friend Ah Hing is a no show, when asking questions about the place, she respond well in Airbnb and sms but once I got in town every change.
First the images you see are deceiving, the bed is broken and fallen apart, the desk is replace by kitchen table, there’s no doors and mostly replace by curtains which is easy for theft to steal and unsecure. There’s no AC (assuming the filter is blocked) as all I got is heated air out of it. Also forgot to mention the floors are sticky as always.
Now the bathroom was a nightmare, Ah Hing wrote to me that I need to bring a bath towel when I was already on route and yet in the package it did mention that they will provide all the essentials for toiletry but the worst part is the tub itself. First it is slippery as hell as I notice there was gain (detergent) that was open assuming it’s for washing the clothing on the tub as when step on it felt a bit gooey and I did split the first time but whats worse is the tub is clog like crazy, just turning the shower for 30 seconds and the tub started to fill. I was able to find hair and some fabric in the drainage and it wasn’t pleasant.
I tried to contact Ah Hing for all issues and it was a no show for me and she said she will respond by sms. Also the code to buzz into the apartment was wrong. She gave me the code 4114 which lead to an old guy who had no clue what I was talking about. I had to wait 30 mins to have someone leaving for me to come in. Also the living room would be private, I’m sorry but when I came in, an Airbnb guest told me that the living room is open space and was pissed.
I will not recommend this place whatsoever, this Vivian doesn’t live in Canada and I would recommend that her account be closed.
I don't recommend staying with this host.
Upon check-in, I was instructed to use the buzzer in the lobby to be let into the building. I arrived exactly when I stated I would, which was 9:00 pm. The buzzer dialed a cell phone, the host did not pick up and the call went to voicemail. I gave it a few minutes, then tried again. This time it went straight to voicemail. Then I tried calling. The phone was off. Went to A&W to get a bite to eat and continued trying to get through for 45 minutes. After waiting, I decided to just follow somebody through the door of the building.
Once inside, everything was fine. The picture of the room is accurate and the bed was comfortable. Though, since there are two or three other people staying in the apartment, each room should have locks on the door. The bathroom was clean enough, but didn't smell very nice. Also, it was very hot in the bedroom, but I was able to open a window to regulate the temperature.
All in all, for the price, the room was fine. However, I was seriously unimpressed with the host. A few hours later I received a text and an apology, stating that the buzzer sometimes has problems. That was just an excuse, as the host's phone was off. I know this because I was trying to call directly. In addition, I sent messages via the Airbnb app.
The next morning, I received an additional text stating that the buzzer has problems. I said that it wasn't the buzzer and that I phoned, sent text messages, and Airbnb messages. A buzzer doesn't cause all of those problems. I didn't get any further messages from the host.
I do feel a little bad for the actual owner of the unit, as she has someone else looking after the place.
To summarize, I had virtually no contact with the host and had to sneak into the building in order to get the keys. The apartment is sufficient, but isn't nice at all and feels run down. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.
the location is great, right between Younge and Church, I was going to the Halloween party and it is very close.
The bed is comfy too and the room is also clean.
The only problem is the guest in the living room were a little noisy at first, if the host could ask all guests to keep quiet it would be more pleasant for all.
It was good for the price.
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
入住了4天，是 Vivian 的新單位，地點位置好，交通購物都方便
Ce n'est pas Vivian qui nous as accueillit, mais surement l'un de ces amis. L'accueil était simple, cependant cela manquait d'informations concernant la ville (carte de la ville, carte du métro..). L'appartement se situe en centre-ville. La chambre correspond aux photos, mais on ne peut vraiment la considérer comme une chambre privée. Seulement un rideau nous sépare du reste de l'appartement, ça manque un peu d'intimité, c'est dommage !
It was a short stay but a good one.
Amazing place, great host, prime location and to top it off a nice warm bed :) nothing wrong from my experience here.
Las instrucciones que están pegadas en la pared, algunas ya hace falta renovarlas, no son muy visibles y algunas están borrosas. Las instrucciones para la conexión no están en ninguna parte. Si no te recibe nadie, no tienes ni idea de cómo conectarte.
Pienso que en las fotografías luce más limpio de lo que está realmente.
El barrio está muy bien, si la intención es moverse hacia UofT o esa parte está excelente.
Great to see you a second time! You'll be back and I'll be here ! Cheers Pete
Nice girl, no problems!
Vivienne is nice and pleasant. Good communication.
Vivienne was a great guest! We enjoyed having her and her friend. We would happily have them back any time!
