No bed bugs at all, but I suggest people stay away from markets; my friend who lived in the beaches had brought them in ; so I suggest one should be careful where they shop.

I have lived here for 12 years and have no issues with bed bugs whatsoever , the building is clean and the super is super sweet, there are a lot of university people here but never rowdy like u see jun the houses along St. George. I have had superb neighbours and no complaints happy to say.

My daughter attended at George Brown College in 2012 and lived at 70 Spadina Road during her first year. My daughter never had any issues of bed bugs or anything of the sort. My daughter found the building very quiet and with the subway station attached to the building,very convenient to get around the city.

My son is now planning on attending University of Toronto this fall (hopefully) and I will get him a bachelor unit at 70 Spadina Road as the location is perfectly suited for him.

I lived here in 2011 and have since moved back this fall. I have never seen a bed bug or any other bugs. It' a fine building, not the cheapest rent but I feel acquainted with the building and location and the superintendent is quite engaging; even though they are different from the one's in 2011. The tenants are what makes the building as well, and they are too ,engaging and courteous and I feel comfortable in this building and location. I hope this assist people and enjoy the city.

Don't live here.

While the superintendent (Jim)is very very nice and means well.. this place is a disaster.

- I dealt with bed bugs in my unit summer of 2014. I've been bed bug free since, but it's not something I would wish on my worst enemy.

- The staff I've interacted with at the rental office are incredibly rude.

- My unit is FREEZING during the winter months. The windows and balcony door are very drafty. You also don't pay for heat so clearly they are trying to save money by

cutting back.

- The building is an overall mess most of the time. I feel like they're understaffed when it comes to maintenance.

- The elevators are a legitimate safety hazard and are constantly broken

- The building's water is shut off pretty often without 24 hours notice. I've been stuck a few times having to go to work without having a shower first.

The only good things about this place are the location and that they allow pets. Other than that it's ridiculously overpriced for what you have to deal with.

This building had has bed bugs on multiple floors in the last year. Debbie, at the head office, took weeks to get an exterminator. It is definitely an issue. I read this exact page before moving in a couple of years ago, so don't be decieved! I personally believe the building has an infestation at this point.

Went to university of Toronto last year and took a one year lease at 70 Spadina Road. I am from out of town and not familiar with the City or Bugs.

Found the building very quiet and lots of students. Never encountered any issue with bugs of any sort in either my unit or anywhere else.

No Bed bugs or roaches to report, only issue my neighbour's ugly dog keeps yapping but Jimmy ( manager/super) took care of it; I have a cat , not an issue with management and of coarse they don;t bark :)

No bugs, a lot of young people in the building ( I am 59)but they are quiet and respectful. Moved in two months ago, like the manager/superintennt and love the subway beside the building and most of all Annex area; The rent is expensive but the location is the best and the location I wanted .

I've lived in the building for 3 years, Jim the super is amazing and love the location and the building, never seen nor encountered pest such as cockroaches or bed bugs, my only complaint would be noise from the traffic ( I live on the east side on the second floor) but on the waiting list for a higher floor.

No bedbugs noticed on the 10th floor but tons of cockroaches.

I found a single bedbug when sitting on my couch. I didnt look like it had recently fed. This apartment building is dirty and poorly maintained. I found this bedbug a couple days after there were "fire inspections" completed in the units without proper written notification.

Currently live in this building and do not have any bed bugs...BUT...have seen them in the hallway and have been able to prevent them from entering my own apartment by putting 2x4 wood planks at the entrance of my door and sealing the gaps with rubber. So, even though I know some of the neighbors have bedbugs, especially on the lower floors, it's not that bad.

Bad thing is, the building is absolutely filthy and has been this way for the years I've lived here. The water is shut off "almost" ev

ery 2nd week for for some reason and they never painted my apartment after coming in and plastering all the little cracks in the wall. So, after so many years, I still have plaster in let's see...something like 20 points in my walls and the gross paint that they were supposed to re-paint after I moved in.

Good news is, they have new superintendents as of around 2 months ago. The old one "Jorge" actually busted in on me once when I was sleeping and half naked. Fucking guy wouldn't even give me 10 seconds to put my clothes on as the fire inspector guy was laughing. Service is shit...what service? Whole building is filthy and disgusting...there are homeless people sleeping in the underground parking every 3rd or 4th night...and now they even put motion detectors in the underground parking so that when you go there, it's pitch black, providing lots of private spaces for the homeless men and drug addicts to do their shit next to the cars. It's a goddamn slum if I've ever seen one. Good news is...the rent is cheap...which makes it all worth it. LOL

I live here currently. Rather, I moved in recently and totally regret it.

To the person who said something like "those who expect top service and low rent" should look elsewhere, how about "any service"? Any? AT ALL?!!

Your current landlady, who I'm fairly certain was lobotimized due to her complete inability to have a dialogue of any sort, does not answer any questions or resolve any tenant issues - ever. That's not charity work, it's her fucking job. I might pay low rent but I still pay

rent and it's illegal to be a slum lord.

Hidden fees - let's talk about those now. Read the fine print before moving in here. I wish I had. There's an administrative fee, which I'm going to discus with a lawyer, that they state they will charge you should you ever wish to move out. $500. Yep. A fee to move out.

Bed bugs? Not in my experience but BEETLES yes!

My neighbour is a drug dealer too. So that's been awesome to find out. I love waking up at 3am to screams and things breaking and smashing next door. It smells like weed all damn day, I hate being home because it gives me a headache when my neighbour goes on one of his drug binges.

Don't move here. It's the fucking Hotel California.

I lived in one of their apartments at 70 Spadina for six years, we had the odd boiler failure in winter or other such mishaps but they were fixed within reasonable time and considering the low rent we paid it was OK and well situated downtown. I know people who have been living there for 40 years, so it can´t be that bad. The Wynns are nice people and are in business, not charity work, so those who want top service and apartments and low rents as well will never be satisfied, you gotta be r

easonable in your expèctations... I live now in South America but I still visit the Wynns in Dupont St. when I come to Toronto, I´ve got nice memories of my time living at 70 Spadina.

ps - For those who say that this is because the
Wynns are latinos, and favour such, that's wrong,
they're jewish and work hard for their money,
like all jews I know.

I moved into unit 112 and lived there about a 8 months. Of course, the landlord did not mention anything.

I did see some small dead insects but could not identify them. Did not get bitten though but always suspected that the building had some.

We moved out a year ago and have not noticed anything in our condo.

It was a an extremely filthy building with mold growing everywhere.

And the landlord was a pain in the back! He could not care less about anything and tried to boss us around

. I had to sue him to get my money back.

I used to live in #110 in 70 Spadina Road. Four months after I moved into the unit(January 2008). My neighbor(#108) informed me that she has bedbug problem and had been sprayed. A week later, I found bedbug in my unit. They sprayed my unit. But the bedbugs came back and they sprayed me and neighbors on my both sides(#108&#112) two more times. However, the bedbug kept returning and in order to get out of my lease, I had to file a report with the tenant board regarding the management company(

the Wynn family group). Before I moved out, I still kept finding bedbugs in my room.
