    Friendly staff.

    Very noisy. The hotel rooms look onto an alley which has the back of 24 hour restaurant and other late night bars. It is noisy all night with people working, trucks picking up stuff and bringing stuff. The walls are so thin you hear everything said in the other rooms. Synthetic sheeting with plastic bed covers so it gets very warm / sweaty. The description on Booking website is wrong: no rooms with private bath. They do charge for it, if you book it. They do not have their reservation process under control, they loose bookings - all very amateur.

    Superb

    I stayed in a 6-bedded dorm so before my arrival I was actually expecting a small room with limited space, but I was wrong! The room was big and VERY clean! The bedding was good, clean and comfortable and there was always fragrance at the frontdestk! In addition, the staff was really friendly and helpful. They gave really helpful information that I needed and there was always someone at the frontdesk to solve my problem. The location was ideal, just 5 minutes walking from a subway station and 10 minutes from downtown on a train.

    The room was not soundproofed; I could here the noises from upstairs and from the street.

    The facilities are fairly basic but they seem to be well maintained and clean. There's a friendly atmosphere and the staff were fantastically helpful. The area is great, easy transport into the city, good nightlife and an interesting mix of shops. It's a very good bed for the night at a reasonable price.

    The walls are very thin and some of the other guests were not particularly considerate. Buy Earplugs!

    Very good

    Location was perfect. Vibe was casual, international, friendly, young. Loved the kitchen, common room, and access to free washer and dryer. No frills, no nonsense.

    My room was the nearest to the common room, which did not close at midnight as advertised my first night there. It was pretty loud quite late (3 am) one night; it was fine the next night. It all depends on the other people staying there at the same time as you, their level of awareness of the impact of their behavior, and proximity of your room to the common room. I wouldn't recommend the closest one on the 4th floor or any rooms below it on the 3rd. I could have talked to the front desk person and/or requested a different room, but I didn't choose to. The second night was much better. I could tell that 90% of the noise was due to one screechy drunk individual.

    Superb

    I liked the environment and meeting the other guests. The pool table and lounge area is a great aspect of the Urban Holiday Lofts.

    The pictures on Booked.net were deceiving. We booked the quintuple room and saw some pictures online. The pictures made the room look bigger than it was. Plus, we basically paid $60 a person just for a bed in a small room. I think the pricing was unfair.

    Cozy, comfortable. Nice staff. A lot of space. Great location. 24 hrs subway very close.

    It didnt have what they promised: There was no breakfast. Just a pityful oat envelope... Without any milk.

    Very good

    Modern and friendly establishment in a good location for a variety of bars and restaurants, and just a few minutes' walk to Damen cta blue line station. Excellent cooking facilities and large communal fridges available. Free bag storage on departure a bonus, if leaving later in the day. Spotlessly clean and secure. Local infomation given on check-in was very useful.

    No blind on one of the windows meant waking very early, with privacy slightly comprimised. Maybe provide stickers for food stored in communal fridges?

    Fabulous

    Location excellent. Common room/area very nice. Rooms clean and spacious.

    I reserved a large room with a private bath. The bath was not private, and we had people coming in constantly to use it. The staff indicated that this was not advertised correctly, and the bath couldn't be made private due to fire regulations (locking a fire door would prevent escape in a fire).

    Price. Location.

    1-Breakfast was a joke, I would rather pay less and not get breakfast. 2-It was very cold in my room because of the window and the high ceiling. 3-It was also loud-from the bars and activity outside to the pool table above my room. 4-There were no hooks in the room!? For jackets/towels/bags... 5-If a place wants a $5 deposit for the room key, they should clearly put that in the booking. Who carries cash anymore? I had to leave my credit card instead! 6-The person who checked me in was either distracted or new because they were not helpful 7-Finally, when I tried to checkout, after 15 minutes of waiting, calling and looking (at 8 am), I went behind the counter, took my credit card back and left my room key without talking to anyone.

    My stay was fantastic and I want to place emphasis on the friendliness of the staff. You could not ask for better service. Their location was perfect. It was really convenient to have a health food store downstairs, and there were plenty of cheap but good restaurants nearby as well. And the rooms, they were so cute with all the paintings on the wall and colored sheets. The lobby upstairs was pretty fun too. It was great getting to know the other people staying there through playing pool. When it came to check out time, the staff was super nice and held onto my luggage so I could explore the city some more. Overall, I have to say that I absolutely love this place.

    Are you kidding me? You couldn't ask more of them.
