My first hostel experience and I think I was very lucky. I decided to throw myself into it and stayed two nights in a female 10 bed room. Someone must have taken the towels from my bed so reception gave me some when I asked. There were lockers in the room but also on other floors (bring a lock or... More

I stayed here for a few nights in May, and overall was not too impressed. I was in a shared dorm on the second floor. The first night was fine, beds are comfy, but the rest were filled with sleepless nights due to the live music from the bar downstairs, which carried on until 2am or so. The bathrooms were... More

The hostel is a great option. Prices are really good. Staff is so so nice. The included breakfast is great (plenty of options). The location is perfect because is a short distance from the Union Station. You got everything around the hostel. Rooms are clean and with air conditioning during summer. Just a great option to be taken!!!

The location of the hostel is great, right in the middle of downtown Toronto. The CN tower and hall of hockey fame are about a 5-10 minute walk. Parking closeby the hostel is ridiculous expensive! The rooms are minimal, but it was clean and quiet. In the basement you can order food, breakfast in the morning will be freshly prepared... More

Whenever I opened a door, it seemed like yet another of the friendly staff members was cleaning assiduously. You could eat your dinner off the floor in all the rooms, public and private - and perform an emergency appendectomy in the bathrooms if you had to! The staff were all kind and friendly, and despite how busy the hostel was,... More

Breakfast is good - I had the health nut and my husband had the fry up. Lovely start to the day being served a fresh / hot breakfast. Communal spaces possibly a bit to small - kitchen is well furnished and clean but if everyone wanted to cook / stay in the lounge area it would be impossible. Rooms -... More

I've stayed in both this hostel and in Canadiana Backpackers. Both have their pluses and minuses. Even though this one has nice beds, great view from the upper floors, and arguably more central downtown location, on my next stay I'd go back to Canadiana, not this one. Here's why: The common showers are located only on 2 of the 9... More

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.
