I had never stayed in a hostel before and as a lone young female traveller I was very apprehensive however when I got here it was the best place I had ever stayed in! It is a family run business and the owners were very helpful and friendly. All the occupants were friendly and I formed new friendships that will... More

This was a great place to stay for a week. When we arrived the staff were a little disorganised and slightly rude, but at all other times the staff were great, helping out with what ever we needed and even doing our laundry for us! We had a private room which was great and had a much needed bath in... More

I went to Toronto because I have never explored Canada. I have visited over 30 cities in Europe but I have never even visited another country on my own continent! I only stayed in hostels while in Europe and this was by far one of my favorite one. Danny (I'm pretty sure his name was) was SUPERB! He answered all... More

Stayed here for the month of July until we got our apartment.. Danny the owner was so friendly and a great laugh. He was so accommodating to us. We had a private room and it was well cleaned and spacious. Great location to start off in as your right beside the CN tower, Rogers Centre, 5 mins from the waterfront,... More

This place is disgusting. Ghetto doesn't even begin to cover it. They may have a fancy website but it's not worth your time or dollars. There was never any staff to help us with the drunk guests who treated the emergency exit like a patio. They even managed to throw their bed outside the door to which was still out... More

We leaving at 3 am to find another hotel most expensive but so much better (actually, it's not difficult to... More

I have stayed in many hostels throughout the world. . Clarence Castle was by far the cleanest with very friendly and helpful staff, they shared the friendly and polite Canadian vibe with all of their guests. Along with all of this the hostel is located in a very convenient area, close to many attractions and parking is available . Overall... More

Clarence Castle is in good location and has a paid parking spot. But the rooms were just horrible. It was so dark in the room and the space was terribly small.You couldn't do any thing but staying on the bed. They had a weird air conditioner that couldn't make the room cool down and kept making annoying noises! The beds... More

The room was dingy with no window, only a glass door so there was no way to get any fresh air safely at night. The breakfast was a note saying make your own cereal. There were threatening notes up elsewhere about what not to do, and there were large stains on the sofa. All this would have been tolerable, except... More

This has definately the worst hostel ihave stayed in for value for money. We booked a double room with ensuite. The 'ensuite' was across a corridor and shared by another 'ensuite'' room, when the owner/ manager was challenged by this and also the fact they hadnt made the bed or were willing to provide duvet covers, he tried to make...
