Best cheap hotels in Toronto

Compared to the rest of Canada, accommodation in Toronto can be expensive. If you're looking for an affordable room, you'll need to be prepared to forfeit a few of those creature comforts – budget hotels in Toronto offer pretty basic double rooms for no less than $85. If you're looking for something cheaper, consider staying in a hostel or visiting during the shoulder season (fall and spring) when the weather's not too cold and the prices aren't too high.

Alternative Toronto accommodation options

Choosing to stay in a property on Airbnb or Stayz not only makes your trip to Toronto more affordable but also more memorable. Properties range from private rooms in shared accommodation to having free rein of some of the most unique spaces in the city.

If you're taking on Canada by campervan, there's nowhere to park within the realms of Toronto's city limits, but there are countless campgrounds to choose from if you head a little further out. One of the closest options is Glen Rouge Campground, which is around a thirty-minute drive from the city centre, but just five minutes from the Toronto Zoo.
