Initial Place to stay for new comers .

Initially I had posted this and provided all links in the first post itself (including the ones I criticized also ) to provide the new readers a list of shortlisted available guest houses in Toronto something which I feel is missing elsewhere on this site and was not there when I seeked similar info.

I am hopeful that sans the unwanted posts (the mod may feel free to delete them) this post serves a good purpose to provide new comers details of guest houses available . Hence the request for it being made sticky.

I have personally known FIDO eversince he came to Canada and have had the pleasure of conversing 3 or 4 times with him/her. I wish to state that i have found FIDO to be a very honest and well rounded person. I would not doubt his/her statements.

Only the strong arrived.

Toronto Newcomer Accommodation
A new temporary rental facility is run by an Indian and Filipino couple next to the subway: Both professionals, so very reliable.

Well Done Fido
After going through all those opinions on this topic... I think FIDO is the 100% right...

In fact, this is very valuable charcha for newcomers to think about and decide about their initial accommodation. Anything would be far better than those guest houses... in my opinion never go for them , they'll rip you off... they are #1 cheats in whole of Canada, feeding on the flesh of novice newcomers from India.

Keep it up FIDO


We are what we think
All that we arises are with our thoughts

Because we are planing to move to Canada,most probably edmonton in June-July 2008.As we have got no relativesout there,we were hoping tostay in the immigration agencies accom.
Please do let us know if it is sooo bad as you out it up,sow e can plan some alternative stay.

Newcomers pls do not go to \
Hi guys

PLS do not go to Patel house @ Markham & Painted post drive (1 Mornington gate...nearest intersection is Lawrence & Markham or Ellesmere & Markham). had some horrible experiences of my 5 years life in Canada recently.
when I stayed there for like 2 months. There are almost 20 guys staying there in a 7 bedroom/2 storeyed detached house at any point of time. The heaters in the room DO NOT work even in most horrible of the winters. The gujju aunty who takes care of the house is one whimsical lady who will pull your legs every now and then if you are a non-gujju as if she only wants gujjus to stay there.( I have nothing against gujjus, point to noted here ). She wants to control everybody, if you speak against her, she won't tolerate at all.

Overall most horrifying experience...for guys who have just landed here, if they expereince something like this, their first impression would be very very bad and they would start thinking all negative sides of their canadian dream.

I would suggest to find like minded guys and share an apartment. Now a days in GTA one would also get NO lease apartments so you don't have to stay there for one year or more.

Cheers & good luck.

Patel house

I fully agree with kdnyanesh about the problems faced @ Patel house. Even I was staying there for few days upon landing, but immediately decided to find another better place. Now I am also sharing an apt. with fews of my friends.

Even after repeated requests the room heater in the basement was never put on even on that day when GTA experienced 27 cm. of snow on one day. I would never recommend anybody (not even a gujju, I myself being one ) to go and stay there even for few days.
