Airbnb of the week: Toronto pottery studio turned into a laneway loft

I've always been curious about laneway houses. They seem like an awesome option to remedy the current housing crisis. And yet, I wonder if it really would feel like sleeping in a glorified garage or shed. airbnb danforth laneway houseWell, if you're curious like I am, for $72 a night you can found out if the laneway home thing is really all it's cracked up to be.

airbnb danforthThe one major downside to this, at least in my opinion, is the open washroom. There is a privacy curtain, but considering the fact that everything is all in one room, I'm not sure if I'm okay with just a curtain. 

But apart from that the place is bright, airy and cozy.
