This hostel is a nice place, for sure. But I have to say: they could have more interesting activities at the hostel. There is an amazing rooftop patio with an awesome view of the Toronto but they have just a BBQ and a Movie activity at that place. And there is also a pub structure on the rooftop that is... More

The place is ok, the dorms are small, but you can survive. However the employees are not nice at all, specially the owner of the place, what was enough for me give just one star. They made a barbecue for the guests and the owner told me that he will not serve me because I was using my cellphone, if... More

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.

This is well worth staying the stay if you're looking for... 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...

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
