You can spend the night in this massive industrial loft in Toronto

Not many people can afford airplane hanger-like spaces to call home, but for anyone who's ever dreamed of living in converted industrial loft, there's always Airbnb

airbnb loft torontoI can think of a few scenarios that would make this enormous hard loft near Dufferin and Geary attractive to temporary renters. While it's the very opposite of cozy, someone travelling with big numbers would surely be enticed by the fact that it comfortably sleeps seven for roughly $150 a night.

airbnb loft torontoWhat's the best feature of the space?

Um, the fact that you could play a game of pick up basketball within its walls. With three bedrooms and a huge living area, the square footage really sets this one apart.

There's only one washroom. It sleeps seven, so you might get a lineup if everyone needs to use the loo at the same time.
