Stayed here with 3 other friends. It's probably the best hostel I've stayed in so far! The rooms and en suite bathrooms were extremely clean. The beds were comfortable with nice (and warm) duvets. Free WiFi throughout the hostel. Free breakfast (good variety as well). Awesome rooftop with good views. Free barbecue dinner on Saturdays on the rooftop. Good place... More

We have been there for a week. People are friendly, some activities are organized like BBQ, cinema, local pubs tour. Breakfast till 1pm! It's clean. However you can hear street's noise from your room, and beds are a bit noisy.

The dorms and the bathrooms are nice and clean. There´s a really nice rooftop patio with a beautiful view of the Toronto skyline. The staff is friendly and helpful.... More

Love this hostel! It's defiantly worth paying the few dollars extra to stay here, rather than another hostel. The breakfast is amazing! So much choice! There is about 10 different variety's of cereal, bagels and breads and free tea/ coffee all day! The common areas are really nice and not over crowded like some, staff are lovely and helpful and...

When I arrived at the Planet Traveler I instantly felt at home, the staff were super friendly, the place is really clean and the free breakfast is awesome. I stayed here for 6 weeks and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I've met some great and interesting people while staying here and the community aspect of this hostel really... More

One of the best hostel experiences I have ever had. Hostel rooms are clean, especially the bathrooms which are cleaned every day. Had a great atmosphere with nice guests and staffs who are engaging. Rooftop was an awesome place to hang out and they have BBQ's on Saturdays for everyone. Close to Chinatown, Kensington, and a good 15-20 minute walk... More

This is literally the best hostel I've ever stayed in - the staff (especially Carl, worlds nicest man) are so friendly and helpful, everybody is warm and welcoming and the common areas are delightful. It is worth paying $40 a night just for the incredible roof top view - and both the pub crawl and BBQ are highlights of the... More

One of the best hostel in Toronto. It is close to the University of Toronto and next to the Spadina Station, so you can get a subway or a street car and go everywhere you want to visit. Clean hostel and the service is pretty good, the staffs are very well prepared. Recommend it.
