I posted about my stay here and the hostel accused me of being a competitor! I stayed here and was covered in bed bug bites!! The hunky receptionist is a dick head and knowingly put me in a room, on a particular bed that he was aware was infested with bed bugs! After being in a hot room with no... More

My partner and I had all we needed in the hostel - a clean room, good shower, great location, air con and access to the kitchen. The positives end there. If we had a choice we would probably not stay here again due to the lack of professional service. I felt that communication between staff and myself was poor -... More

I recently had a two night reservation with Clarence park. I was a solo male traveler so I opted to book the six bed mix dorm suite. I have stayed in well over two dozen hotels with moderate to positive experiences at all of them. The pictures of the rooms online reassured me that I had made the right choice.... More

The cleanliness of the place is one of the best I have seen in Toronto. The staff super attentive and the guests are friendly. The views are spectacular, you have a absolute clear view of the CN tower. I stayed at a different hostel before coming to this one and I wish I had the oppurtunity to book this one... More

Stayed in this hostel for 2 weeks and what can I say. Absolutely brilliant. Staff are very welcoming and accommodating, so helpful when needed help with things. And also just genuinely lovely people. It has a big kitchen and places to store food so you are able to cook. I was in an 8 bed dorm for most of my... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in a private room. It was awesome. The location of the hostel in relation to all the downtown sights is perfect. Walking distance to all the stuff you want to see. The staff is so friendly, and we really felt welcome. We got a great deal parking our car in the... More

I'm too old and too financially comfortable to be staying in hostels, but I couldn't resist giving the Clarence Park a try during a conference, when my other hotel options started at $200 night, and the CP was going for $90 (private room, private bath, double bed). For my five nights at the CP, I saved $550, which covered the... More

The hostel was busy with a friendly atmosphere. We were welcomed and given good recommendations of places to see and visit by Damian. Our room was nicely decorated and very spacious with a good shower in the en suite. The cafe next door was good for breakfast, however it was open until very late at night and as our room... More

My friend and I reserved 2 beds in a dorm for the weekend. We didn't have any other expectations than having a clean room and being well located to visit the city by foot. Mission accomplished! The location was great, the service was good, the room was clean and the beds had curtains for more privacy. Good tip: if you... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
