I really enjoyed my stay with Barb as she was the most amazing hostess I've ever stayed with. Everything was so clean and organized! It was so nice to have other medical students/residents staying there too because everyone was in the same situation and very mindful and there were never any issues with noise. It is a lovely neighbourhood and a walking distance to shops and the hospital. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!! Barb is a lovely person and she will make you feel very welcome :)
Perfect location for an elective at St. Joseph's - Barb's place is just on top of the "mountain" with stairs that lead straight down to the hospital. I stayed at her place for 2 weeks - I had no car & was able to walk everywhere (the bus is also very convenient). Very safe neighbourhood! Other bonus is not having to worry about buying milk, the fridge is always well stocked & there is a selection of teas to enjoy.
Barb is incredibly welcoming and kind :) She has everything prepared so that you feel like you are truly coming back to your home and is extremely accommodating. Also ++organized and would highly recommend!
Barb is a wonderful hostess. I stayed with Barb for 2 weeks when I was at Hamilton for a medical elective. She really goes out of her way to make you feel at home. My time there was so memorable that I elected to stay there again when I returned to Hamilton for an interview. Her location is safe and very close to all hospitals. Barb makes sure that everyone is comfortable and well taken care of. I remember when I was staying there, a student was having difficulties accessing his CASPER exam due to laptop technical difficulties. Barb lent him her laptop and made sure that he could logon in time and complete the exam. Overall, if you are visiting Hamilton, whether for a short trip or a longer stay, I would without hesitation recommend staying with Barb.
Barb is a wonderful hostess! She truly looks out for her tenants and will to drop you off at orientation and drive you to get groceries. As a previous review mentioned, she also stocks her fridge with snacks and drinks. Her place is very clean and comfortable. Definitely recommend!
