Basic human decency.
In case it's unclear what that means: Clean up if you make a mess, try to be quiet if other people are sleeping, don't break anything, don't steal anything, don't smoke inside, if you're not sure whether you should do something, ask.
Also, please do not bring us your bed bugs or other pets!

My roommate Jess and I are both recent university graduates living in and loving downtown Toronto. We've been in this city for 6 years and are still meeting new people and discovering great places to eat, drink, and play. We are also avid travelers and have experience with Airbnb as guests. As hosts, we are happy to give you tips on fun things to do in Toronto and we always want to hear about your experiences here and abroad. Of course, we understand that a clean, comfortable, private space is key after a long day of adventuring so we keep your room and the rest of the apartment up to snuff.
