This place is infested with bugs and rodents. If you're looking at moving into this apartment, DON'T! When I first looked at the suite I noticed the building needed major upgrades, but the suite had been renovated and was cute. It's an older building, so it has some charm which I love. And rent was cheap ;) But as soon as we moved in I really started to notice how disgusting and run down the whole place is. Dirty, gross carpets and some seriously weird, trashy tenants. Someone lived there tha

t would actually dumpster dive and bring bags of garbage into the apartment. No wonder there were bugs! And I don't know how many times I saw cops go into the building. We had to call them once! My boyfriend and I lived there from March 2013 until October 2013 and that was way too long for me. I tried to find another apartment a month into living there, but with 2 big dogs that is not easy. We were lucky and did not end up with bed bugs, but we had hundreds of fruit flies on our ceiling, the dogs constantly had fleas (they don't now that we've moved) and a rodent problem. We killed one with a trap, and I constantly found mice droppings and chewed up wires in the house. This place should honestly be condemned because it's nasty. The suite was so cute so it's a shame the building itself is so gross. Such a shame since it's in such a beautiful part of Queens Park.

This building is infested ,has been for years !! Most of the tenants seem to have no problem liVing in this mess as they are too high on drugs to even care !! The landlord is vdry understanding and will come spray units but with dirty people keeping their apartment nasty it is not solving the problem ! I have seen bed bugs and many cockroache's, some as big as my thumb so seems like something coming from a horror movie !I suggest you stay away from this building as some tenants dont seem to be

bothered at all with bugs crawling all over them and nothing is being done to solve the problem !!

Been here for less than 1 month and I am looking for a new place because I can't go to sleep. Cockroaches in the Kitchen, Ants in the bathroom, I haven't seen any bedbugs yet but I think that is worse!

Landlord blamed the previous tenant but F*ck that!! Unless you are really desperate and willing to live in a sh*t hole STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!

I'm getting out before myself or my pets get sick or bitten or infected.


This entire building is infested with not only bed bugs but also cockroaches, ants, fleas, and mice.

Moved into a nice looking, newly renovated suite and noticed bugs within a few weeks of moving in. Did not know what they were as I had never seen them. I've spoken to other residents and I was not the only person who had a problem. Many people including myself had to dispose of furniture and personal belongings due to infestation.
The landlord will only spray individual suites and won't ta

ke care of the problem professionally. They will also tell you it is solely your responsibility for the bug infestations, when they are in fact rampant throughout the entire building! Get out, stay out, and if you're still there, report the landlord to the tenancy board. Enough is enough!

Steam your clothes and your bed if you want to live here peacefully.

Bed bugs can be picked up anywhere and can multiple by the hundreds so there is no quick fix. The spraying and powdering is hardly going to eliminate them all if there are few who survive and feed and then re-multiply.

Both myself and a friend have lived in this apartment. I moved in in 2013 and left at the end of 2014 leaving behind all my furniture. The bed bugs will get into everything you own and ruin all your belongings. How the fuck am I supposed to replace all my furniture?
The cockroaches are another problem.
They come in here and "spray" but they don't take care of the problem. And the landlord will tell you whatever you need to hea

r to get you to move in here. DO NOT! DO NOT!
My arms are covered in scars and bites from bedbugs despite constant vacuuming, laundry and more. This whole building is crawling with different infestations. The only reason I haven't seen mice? I've got a cat.

This building needs to be demolished. The bugs are in the walls. Either the whole building needs to be bug bombed or torn town. This place ruined my life.

I live here currently with my children. I keep seeing bed bugs and the landlord keeps "spraying" but they come in thru the floor boards. I have been bit and it is very painful. Same with cockroaches and ants! Pls do not move in to this building!!! I live very clean. I vacuum everyday and I won't even let my child sit on the floor I'm so paranoid. Obv moving out now. Every suite is prob infested. There are ppl moving out every month. Pls do not move here !!!!!!

STAY AWAY from this building! It's the worst building in new west. Every unit is filled with bed bugs and the cockroaches will ruin your life! Stay out and get out

I lived in the suite from October 2014 to mid February 2015. I saw a number of live bugs and was bitten a number of times. The building owner is a nice enough fellow, however, when I reported the bed bugs he sprayed the one room in my suite, not the whole suite or the whole building. The bugs live in the common space of the building; halls, in between walls,ceiling /floors, electrical wires, pipes etc. Bed bugs cannot be contained by one suite, and are still present even though they canno

t be seen. (they can hide wherever the corner of a credit card can slide.) This problem has not been addressed or eradicated-my child was bitten repeatedly w no signs of a major bug infestation in our suite. The other residents of the bldh seem to have an ability to happily cohabitatate with the bugs and not complain. If you're hoping for sage advice about living here,for your peace of mind find a bldg that's not on the bb registry.

This place is awful! Had to move out and leave most of our stuff because of the bedbugs, and cockroaches. Oh and there is a flea contamination as well! I had indoor pets, and it has been a nightmare since moving out to get rid of the fleas! And what the guy/girl before me said... They think they can spray one unit, and the problem be solved! It is an issue throughout the WHOLE building.

This building still has a major cockroach and bedbug problem. The landlord sprays one unit and thinks its fixed. Horrible building.

We also moved in over about a year ago. We had seen a few bedbugs that weren't fed we caught them and killed them. Then we told the landlord and got our place sprayed and we got powder. We powdered under the heaters and our bed frame. After that we've been totally clean and haven't seen one for over a year. I have pets but I live really clean so that probably helps. The landlord is more then willing to come and give the suite a spray if I see even a single bedbug.

I live here currently. I have been here over a year. I haven't seen any bugs. I do however live in one of the renovated suites and the exterminator has sprayed twice, for preventative. I also live cleanly, so im sure that makes a huge difference.There are bugs in apartment buildings, it happens. The landlord is more than willing to spray at no cost and if you live cleanly it won't be a problem. People who live in dirt and filth obviously will have pest problems. If you are considering moving in,

move into a renovated suite and ask them to spray prior to moving in.

I lived therefor about 7 months, at first I thought I was having a reactions to some soap or something becuaswer I had welts and they would get super itchy...turns out I had bed bugs bites!! then I saw them, many times. Then my cats was playing with a cockroach,how disgusting!!!!! and about a month before we moved I discovered ants in my food in the cupoboards, I had to throw out most of my food and had to keep any food I did buy in the fridge. We complained multiple times about not only the bug

s but all the partying in the building, nothing ever was delt with properly... WORST BUILDING EVER!!!

OH GOD. Thanks for the millions of ants and cockroaches and oh yeah BED BUGS. The landlord INSISTED that this was a friendly bug controlled environment. Give me a break, I cant leave anything on the counter, not unless I want to see little tiny ants crawling all over it. Seeing cockroaches, havent seen bed bugs yet but wont be surprised when I do. NEW ONE, ear wigs, how cute. Anyone wanna move here now? fuck that shit.

This building is crawling with bed bugs, ants and cockroaches. It's the worst building to move into. The landlord may seem great but he doesn't have to live here so this problem persists. Don't move in here unless u would like to buy all new furniture. Seriously stay away!!!

not only have I found bedbugs many times, i have found a cockroach and i have heard mice chewing in the walls at night. The building needs to be destroyed

this apartment is crawling in bedbugs, seriously no one move in. this problem seems to be going on for years now.i lived there about a year ago, only stayed for2 weeks because of the bed bugs.even tho i was promised by the landlord prior to moving in that there are no more bed bugs. after getting rid of all my stuff and getting the fuck out of there, i have never looked back. the land lord is a douche and full of bs. he wouldnt re fund any of my money or give me back any of my damage deposit. th

e building is full of druggies, alcoholics, and bums, really it is not a healthy living situation. if anyone is looking to move out of this place, you have to be so cautious that you are not bringing them to your next place. PLEASE EVERYONE STAY AWAY, THIS BUILDING NEEDS TO BE DEMOLISHED, AND BURNT TO THE GROUND..... YUCK!!

I have lived here for about 6 months and have had my suite sprayed 3 times and I STILL have bedbugs! the landlord will tell you whatever you want to hear so you move in. DO NOT live here unless you want to be bitten and have to replace all your furniture which of course is very costly. Another tenant had seen a cockroach not to mention the lovely junkies and drunks up all hours of the night in this dump and the woman who set her suite on fire cause she was mad at the guy next door (?!). The suit

es may be renovated but its a sham, all the glitters is nt gold!!! I am currently looking for a new place and will tell everyone about this hell hole and not to fall for the landlords BS, he cant just spray individual suites he needs to have the building treated all at once. He has one of the caretakers certified to spray so he does nt have to pay for a real exterminator

We have bedbugs! The only saving grace is the landlord is doing a really good job of dealing with it. He had the pest control guy in to do the first treatment the day after we called him, and he came to see us immediately with a can of DE and lots of advice. We have a second visit scheduled with the pest control service next week, just to be safe (all paid for by the landlord). What sucks is because it's embarrassing and there's a social stigma attached, people seem hesitant to say when they hav

e them! I wish my neighbors would report immediately when they have an issue, because the landlord seems very happy that I told him right away to get it dealt with.

These people are full of it. I have been living at 101 Royal going on five years now. I have never had a pest problem ever. I clean my house and don't live like a slob. I'm not sure what these people are going on about. Allot of the suits are new renoed and look great. It is an exelent place to live right by queens park. The owner is a very nice guy and always has people working there. Before the new owner bought the building the old landlord was awfull. But since the new owner the place has don

e a 180 turn. I love this building and don't see myself leaving for a long time.

This building is infested with bed bugs! No one is reporting them, so it just continues. I've had my place sprayed on my own, but since the rest of the building is crawling in them, they just keep coming back. the landlord is renovating all the suites and that's great but how about getting rid of the damn bugs! With the bed bugs also comes thousands of tiny ants and cockroaches, totally infested building. I am looking for a new place to live and just plan on leaving all my furniture there. I wou

ldn't advise anyone to move into this building!

Although it seems like there is not a bed bug problem, due to the fact there has been no recent reports, this is not so... I moved in to a "newly renovated" apartment by the second day of living there I noticed there were bed bugs. Dont move in here, unless you want to waste a bunch of money and through out all your furniture...
This place is crawling with bed bugs!!

The pest control company was in for an inspection of all units and I think they may have this problem under control finally!!!! The problem was tenants not reporting the problem or being too stoned to notice.

ive lived here for 4-5 months and they wont go away maybe for a couple days but landlord will not spray the whole building! thats the problem crack heads n people that just dont care

WE have bed bugs. It's disgusting. We've been sprayed before but of course this problem just never goes away! I'll tell you one thing though. Of course i'm not using my bed anymore.. NO THANKS. So instead i've been sleeping on three chairs for the past 2 months.

This whole building is infested with things other than bed bugs as well. This problem WILL NOT go away, unless the whole building is sprayed, not just individual suites.


Several apartments are infested at this time. Pest control is called when the bedbugs are reported to the landlord, but not everyone is reporting.

This place is infested! Stay away! Sprayed 4 times but not whole building, they just keep coming back.

Several apartments infested. Landlord is good at getting exterminators in, and is in process of renovating apartments. Our apartment is okay but people next to us have bed bugs, and others on first and third floor report bed bugs as well.
