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.

Great location in the city! Everything was in walking distance. Dorms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a great bonus! Really good value for money. Good fun in the evenings, karaoke, live bands, comedians - great vibe. Also do the free walking tours, a great chance to see the city and also meet other travellers staying at the hostel. Overall...

Stayed here recently whilst travelling. Have to say the place is very nice. The staff were very nice. They provided a cooked breakfast to order which is nice! The rooms are nice however if you do stay in any of the front room of the hostel they can be quite noisy from the street! Wifi doesn't work in the room... More

This place is the dream for a tourist trying to save money ! If your alone this is perfect! So many people to meet, good wifi, great location and free breakfast! If your not alone this is still good. You can meet even more people and save some money rather then stay in a cheap hotel.

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
