At this property you can be sure to be welcomed with open arms. Great, warm staff populates this abode. Location, location, location...couldn't be better. Smack in the middle of the heart of Toronto, you're literally in walking distance of anywhere you need to go. The two common areas are big and roomy. Room was warm throughout the night which was...

I stayed at the Clarence Park hostel during a weekend trip to Toronto. Danny was super accommodating and helped us out with a late check-in/out. All the staff were incredibly friendly and they made our time in Toronto SO great :) 10/10 would stay here again

The Clarence Park is located in a great spot right next to some of the five star hotels in Toronto. The hostel itself was nice, nothing fancy and maybe the common areas could have been a little tidier, especially the kitchen. The room was cozy and clean, but the room we stayed in had the emergency exit which let in... More

We stayed in a small double room which had some new furniture. It was located in a separate building next to the hostel. There was a fire door in our room and a sign outside showed the emergency exit through our room... Please, don't even think about explaining this. Oh and there was no window so no chance for fresh...

I cannot speak highly enough about The Clarence Park. After a horrendous journey from the airport (Toronto transport need to get their proposed rail system from the airport done quickly), I was greeted with enthusiasm and a smile by Dan Zern, the manager, who suggested I sit in the comfortable leather chairs or couch whilst he finished with another guest....

I'd like to start this review very simple: this is, by far, one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed at. I have traveled quite a lot for someone my age, and I work full time in a hostel in downtown Vancouver so I am familiar with the business. Furthermore, if it was not for the generosity and kindness... More

Stayed for three nights and I've never had a hostel staff so accommodating w/ issues that came up with my travel. Danny, Jeff, and Jordy...all three are great and funny guys (hope you like sarcasm!!). The hostel's location couldn't really be better. It's located in front of a beautiful park and next to a good French-ish restaurant. Had a solid... More

I stayed at the Clarence Park for two nights, and really enjoyed my time here. I came with a car, and there was room in the back to park (don't forget to tell reception ahead of time - space is limited). The location is within walking distance of great neighborhoods and landmarks in downtown Toronto, including Queen West, Chinatown, the... More

I stayed in the Clarence Park for 5 nights. Me and my friend booked the deluxe double room that was not the ceapest option but definetly worth its money. The room was big, comfortable and clean and we had an awesome view on the CN Tower when we lay in the king size bed. In front of the hostel is... More
