I was in transit and checked in for a single night. I found the place pretty descent. But, for tourists who'd need to navigate in and out of the city, this place isn't centrally located. That said, the tariff was cheap, and the owner friendly, which doesn't leave much to complain about.

My 2 friends and I needed a place to stay for the last 2 days of our trip and we went for the cheepest available - which was a mistake. Their check-in system is really weird: there is no staff in the hostel and you have to call them and wait for them. Then they drove us to another building... More

This is the 10th & worst hotel we've stayed in - travelling by hire car east from Calgary to Halifax. Don,t be taken in by the fact it has 'Downtown' in its name. Tthe room is poor & a bit smelly. Food is ridiculously expensive. Also the people are nothing like as friendly as we have found them elsewhere. Luckily,... More

Me and my friend spent one week in Canada in May 2013 and were looking for cheap accommodation, simply somewhere to lay our heads for the night. For £15 a night, you could certainly do a lot worse. The young lady who met us on arrival didn't speak particularly brilliant English, but was friendly and did try to make us... More

avarage location, bathroom and room were horribly small, if you are above 170cm you may find it difficult to take a shower :D, disastrous staff, the lady told us that we can pay $5 more if we want a room with a bathroom and a window, the thing was that the bathroom in the room didn't have a door :D...

We stayed here for 5 nights in March/April 2012, when we arrived the lady tried to over charge us and we had to show our email confirmation to prove how much we should have to pay. Then we were told we would not be staying in the hostel but in other accommodation which was accross the road. The accomodation here... More

it's a good place to stay in toronto. nice location (chinatown), about 20 min walk to center. staff is very friendly and helpful, atmosphere in the hostel is really good. for a youth hostel it's not very cheap, but the place is clean and breakfast included, which is okay. if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs, room had poor...

We felt really welcome at this place, the hostess was a gem who took great care of us and helped us out with everything we asked for. Granted, the rooms are quite worn, the view is not so nice and they smear vaseline under the bed to ward off cockroaches, but it was very clean and beds were big and... More

We made a world journey and stayed in different hostels all over the world. and this was, by far, the worst hostel we stayed in. We wouldn't go here again and advise you to take a look elsewhere. It's a cheap option, but then not even worth the money. They need to clean-up bad. Our room was in a basement... More

What a tip! This place is DISGUSTING! Being regular travellers, we have never stayed in anything so dire! We arrived at Toronto Aiport and were picked up by one of the employees of the hostel. En route, the driver pulled over on the highway and told us that we would have to stay in a different hostel, 30 minutes outside... More
