The check in was late - made me return twice. The AC only worked for a few hours, the TV only had one channel. There were 2 food crumbs on the bathroom floor that had fallen from a bag we put in the garbage and when we woke on day#2, tiny ants had taken over about half the floor We had to cover the floor with towels to shower. We were happy to be leaving. Had no issue with the overall area as there is good and bad everywhere.

Dragon Gate is in a vibrant, busy area with easy access by streetcar or on foot to just about everything. The room was totally acceptable, for the price; we found the bed and linens to be clean and the shower was functional - there were areas of the room that were less clean (think: corners and such) but overall highly recommend to stay for a young/active couple. Many bars and a lot of nightlife on the street so a bit noisy at night if windows are open. Excellent food on the street and nearby! Area is bustling but not unsafe.

Unadvertised front door and front desk did not prepare us for the nice room. The room was nice, with two beds, small kitchen area (there was even dishes, and pots) and nice large window. Partial view on the CN tower from our room (behind a tree). I like the outdoor access to the room, and there was no room beside ours. The neighbourhood is very nice and everithing you might need is walking distance. Con's : no curtains in one of the windows, and on the other window, curtains let a lot of light through. There is a TV but no cable access so only 2 channels available. There was a HDMI cable though, so I suppose we could have plug a laptop to watch something on the TV.

Installations and rooms are old, the layout of the room areas is scary, you need to go thru various doors to reach to your dorm. It was never mention that the room seem to be on the basement, with no windows at all

The staff was nice upon check in but the building itself is easy to miss. Our room was probably a 5/10. It was spacious and it had air conditioning but our mini fridge had mold on the inside, there was no toilet paper in the bathroom, there was a red substance on one of the chairs and there was a tea bag sitting under a pillow on the couch. It didn’t seem to have been cleaned very well. For the price though, I wasn’t too surprised at these things.

The reviews didn't look so bad so we decided to take a chance. It was old and dirty. The bed was rock hard and we kept seeing tiny black ants on the floors. It was terrible, never again.

This property looks nothing like the images in the listing, and the Queen-size bed I booked was instead a double (without adequate linen). The room didn't have a window or proper ventilation and smelled like cigarettes. I wouldn't pay hostel rates to stay here and chose to cancel the booking to stay elsewhere. I was only able to get a partial refund from the hotel itself, and Expedia refused to refund my stay.

It's a place to rest your head and refresh before hitting the city. It was clean during my stay, having a private bathroom and some small amenities like fridge kitchenette table and chairs was a good touch and was useful. Don't expect quality bed but I was able to sleep. The place needs better signage but Google will get you there.
