Basic hostel, but overall very good. Comfy bed, small bathrooms (but fine considering the price!). The breakfast is free and SO SO good! Location is wonderful, bar downstairs is cool and the staff are really helpful. Wifi is veeeery good too.

Everything I want in a hostel. Clean and nice rooms. Ideal location. In room Wi-Fi. Breakfast was great and even a bar downstairs was the icing on the cake. Would have liked a few more power outlets in the rooms but overall very happy with my stay.

A little overpriced, they charge for computer use (never been to a hostel that does that.....), the time I went, they didn't have free wi-fi (maybe they do now). Good and friendly customer service. Big lockers! They place is very clean from the naked eye. Nice kitchen, pretty cool deck. Good location in the city, no free parking. If you're... More

We stayed here for two nights in an 8-bed female dorm. On the first night they had a "pop-rock" band playing in the bar in the basement - all well and good, apart from the fact that in our dorm on the second floor we could hear every word. Until what seemed to be 2/3am. The second night was an... More

Awesome, fun hostel. Stayed in a neat and clean private room, met amazing people, the staff were helpful and friendly and I had plenty of fun in the bar downstairs. Great vibe and it makes me miss Toronto just thinking about it ! Will definately visit again :)

This was the perfect place for us and is just what we needed for our trip to Toronto. The common areas were a little small for us and the rooms a little cramped, but other than that it was a great place to stay in the city. There are a lot of great places to see within walking distance. Read... More

I really felt comfi and got many friends there from all over the world. And especially Rodorigo who works at a front desk was so helpful. He always solved my questions. Thanks so much. I wanna stay there again if I visit Toronto one day.

The staff were very nice and helpful. The Cavern (restaurant/bar) was very interesting but also very small and the live bands were too loud to carry on conversation and I believe the sound probably would travel through at least a couple of floors. We were on the 8th floor so it was delightfully quiet, except the elevator.

I visited Toronto for the first time in November 2014. The central location of the hostel, within walking distance of two picturesque cathedrals, the waterfront and the university district, blew me away. In the night, the place buzzes up with revellers prowling the streets until late at night. Ask for tips and deals for sightseeing and partying at the reception... More
