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

I had mixed feelings about this hostel with some great pros but also a few cons! To start with the positives, the staff were absolutely lovely, the bar downstairs is a great place to hang out with live entertainment (which you can't hear from the rooms!) and the included Cooked breakfast was amazing with choices of bacon and eggs, fruit...

I stayed at HI in June 2014. All the staff are very helpful, the hostel itself is positioned in a great part of the city. The bar area in the basement is very good and the drinks are pretty reasonably priced! Had a great time, and hope to come back again!

Stayed here twice, once at the beginning of my trip for 3 nights in a 10 bed dorm & at the end in a 6 bed dorm for a single night. The 10 bed dorm, not bad, bed was comfy, room warm & the bathroom was just by the room. The shower had everything you need & the hostel provides... More

I've been three times in Toronto, and every time I come back to this hostel. It's located in the GTA area, five minutes away walking from Dundas Square, the central hub of downtown. They offer now in winter weekly rates, worth considering. It's clean, and it has a great bar downstairs where you will meet a lot of people from... More

My first stay & I felt comfortable throughout. The location is excellent; I used to easily walk to most of tourist attractions. The front desk staff was extremely friendly & helpful. The rooms & bathrooms were clean. The breakfast had an array of choices including a vegan one & a fruit bowl which was my fav.

Helpful staff, clean place, good breakfast (included), nice dorms (go for the 4-bed-rooms) and always clean washrooms. Though a bit noisy some nights, although nothing serious. A perfect central downtown option for the solo traveler.
