  • We had a very good 1 night spent at Walter’s place. Walter was very attentive to our needs and the overall experience was well-organized. Very we-situated for McMaster students.

    Walter was great and very helpful with everything. I was visiting McMaster University so the location was perfect! Check in and check out was easy and the room was clean.

    The room was perfect for my needs — a single bed, a usable desk, closet space with some hangers, a decent shower, and nice kitchen area with plenty of fridge space.

    I had a great time at Walter’s. I had a nice room with a single bed. Although certain spaces were shared, it felt very private. Walter went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable.

    Once again, thank you very much for everything you did during our stay, the place really was spectacular. I have seen enough places in the area and your house is by far the best out there! Keep up the great work!

    My stay with Walter had been very pleasant. The room, kitchen and common area is as described, clean, with all the necessities and Walter was always within reach to answer any questions. The public transit bus stop is within a minute walking distance outside his home. The surrounding area has restaurants, a bar, a convenience store and a coffee shop. I would definitely stay with Walter again.

  • The listing description was accurate, the room I stayed in was in the basement with bathroom & kitchen. Although the room is in the basement, it is nice & clean. I arrived when Walter wasn’t there but he made sure I knew how to get to place, and left keys for me. Next day he stopped by and made sure I had everything I needed to enjoy my stay.

    Walter is a great host. He’s very friendly and helpful (he even picked me up from the train station when I couldn’t figure out the transport in Hamilton ;), and the place was very nice and really close to McMaster. Fully recommended!

    I am Thierry; a student at the Mc Master campus, I had lived at 165 Emerson street from September 2011 to April 2013 and loved every minute of my stay at this location. Walter, the landlord, is a very polite man and he makes himself available to the tenants. When his help is needed, he takes immediate actions. Added to the convenience of being located near the University, 165 Emerson is located in a nice neighborhood, and the house’s atmosphere feels like home. I wish all new tenants to have the same fun and success with their studies that I had while living at 165 Emerson.
    Thierry, Hamilton, 2013
    Had an amazing time staying at Walter’s place. The location was perfect as it was walking distance from McMaster University. The bus stop outside also goes to downtown, so going downtown was a breeze. The room I stayed in had an office chair, a fan, a bed, a closet and a desk. Basically everything that I needed. Would definitely come back again!

    Thanks Walter Clean Room, Great Location, Student House.
    Marc, Toronto, 2015

    Mike, Taiwan, 2014
    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at 165 Emerson during the summer of 2015. The house was clean and in good shape and it was nice to have access to a backyard as well. The landlord was friendly and helpful and the neighborhood was safe and close to necessary amenities.
    Corey, Toronto, 2016
    A great landlord, always asks if we need anything, quick to respond to our requests, and did a great job renovating the house. Overall a fantastic experience at 165 Emerson.
    Michael, Ottawa, 2013
    165 Emerson is a great house with a fabulous landlord. He’s an extremely approachable man who does not hesitate to solve any of your problems during your stay. I was very pleased with his response time when there was a problem. The house was extremely clean during my first move in which to me was a big thumbs up. The price is fair for the location of the house and amenities available nearby. Overall, it was a very nice experience.
