The building is a beautiful old character building run by a private owner. Lots of original character, some suites more updated than others but all low budget cabinets fixtures etc.. This is reflected in the very affordable rent. Suites are all large one bedrooms with original hardwood floors. Walls are thick so can't hear neighbour's on the same floor except through hallway doors, but floors transfer some sound so you know how active your neighbours above and below are. Radiator heating can get a little cool at times so everyone I know has a space heater but most days it is good. Windows single pane and badly installed don't keep the wind out but putty and plastic up in the fall make it ok. I have felt they are pretty good at doing repairs although they may take a while as one repair man for server all buildings and they use low cost trades so it might take a bit for major repairs. They are good at notifying you about water shut off for repairs etc. There was one incidence of bed bugs in the few years I lived here and they fumigated the suites immediately and did inspections of all suites, which resulted in another suite then being identified as the source and cleared out pretty my ch completely then follow up inspections afterward. Bed bugs are everywhere these days and landlord inspects things on move in to try to prevent anyone moving in with them, This building has only had the one infestation and it was contained and dealt with quickly whereas many people I know have bed bugs in their buildings in some suites at all times, so I feel this is better than most, especially when it is such low rent. All long term tenants which is unusual in a fairly transient neighbourhood. Location is excellent for buses and convenience, although homeless population higher in this part of city. If you get the opportunity to move in, I recommend it. Available suites rarely advertised as few people move and there are always people waiting to take over leases. Although the landlord doesn't not promote pets, many tenets have cats without comment. Parking is limited but adequate.

Bed bugs in the building. The landlord doesn't seem to care.
Good neighborhood.. but if I had to choose again I would live in a different apartment.

I've lived here a long time, so the rent is really cheap. It would be a great place if we had a landlord that cared. I know other tenants are having problems with bedbugs, but he's not doing enough to keep on top of it. You have to call Residential Tenancies or Health Department to get anything done around here. Condensation and mould can be a problem in winter months, so you really have to make sure to keep warm dry air circulating. The building itself is a very beautiful character apartment. The suites are a good size, but the appliances are really old. Laundry facilities are on site. Some tenants are noisier than others. The walls keep out most of the noise and you can't beat the location.
