I stayed here on and off in summer 2014 while I moved to Toronto and transitioned into my own spot. Staff there were perfect ... very friendly, helpful and really made a strong effort to make everyone feel welcome. And that statement is true from the staff at front desk, at the bar, housekeeping ... everyone. Travis in particular was... More

Stayed here for a single night in September, but wish I had stayed longer! Great little hostel near the heart of the city. Secure and comfortable - if you need to drop bags off early there are lockers in the foyer and locks available for purchase. The staff were super friendly and allowed me an early check in. There are... More

Spent a total of 6 nights here spread over two weeks. Stayed in a 10 bed female dorm which was very spacious. Bathrooms were old in appearance but always very clean. Rooftop patio on level 5 was a nice feature. Breakfast was awesome, choice of 5 options cooked and brought to your table. Lots of daily activities to join in... More

The hostel was good in general, as far as hostels go. I booked a private room, which was a bit expensive considering what you get, but the location was very, very good, near King metro station. Just depends what you want. Pros: very friendly staff, quiet room (I was on the 8th floor), excellent breakfast (5 different cooked options plus... More

Clean, fun, good service. Easy to get and they have a lof of activities, they even have a bar inside. Nice environment. And I don't know what else to write. By the way, the Brazilian girl from Sao Paulo is cute ;)

The services were nice and staffs were very friendly - I felt like home from the first day of my arrival. Included breakfast were the best part of my stay in the hostel!!! Yumm Yumm!!! It was very...

Wonderful breakfast, wonderful reception! The location is awesome, near central station (train), few blocks from metro. The beds are good, and the bathrooms were always clean. The laundry was very efficient with good machines. The internet was wonderful! Always worked! I totally would come back!

My friend & I from the UK have been travelling through countries like Australia, New Zealand, USA & Canada and experiencing the chain of HI / YHA hostels, and each time they've been excellent. Perhaps the HI Toronto comes in for unfair criticism on my behalf here, as the previous HI we stayed at was in Chicago and it was... More

Well located - although don't be put off by the homeless whip take refuge outside the door. Friendly. Basic. Clean hostel. Would recommend. Excellent breakfast- it set the benchmark: fresh fruit, cereals, toast, bagels & cream cheese, tea/ coffee

At first I was disappointed to be assigned a bed; I don't like top bunk, but they make the bed for you, so that made up for it. They include a comforter if you are cold. In the 10-bed female dorm, each bed has a small shelf for your small belongings (glasses, water bottle, etc.) and a reading lamp (although... More
