That's the best place to stay in Toronto! We were welcomed very warm-heartedly and profressional (Thanks to Robin...your explanations and tipps were helpful and entertaining at the same time.) Everything is very clean. The breakfast is huge and nutritious! Everybody around is good company. The hostel is located in a great area. Don't miss the amazing view from the top... More

I spent a couple of days in here when i crashed in Toronto. Everything is awesome. Employees are nice, rooms are clean, so is the kitchen. The owner is really friendly. It was a real pleasure to chat with him ! And damn, free pasta night on saturday ! What else to ask for ? Go there you wont regret.

I stayed here for few nights before getting the train across to Vancouver. I was able to check in straight away and was in room 12. There was a separate entry way for the room containing lockers and charging facilities, as well as somewhere convenient to kick off snow covered shoes to prevent them from tracking slush into the room....

I had a private room with a bunk bed (double on bottom and single on top) and a shared washroom.The room was fabulous, very clean and comfortable bedding. The only downside was that the washroom was shared between 4 rooms which held 2 people each, so... More

The staff were really friendly and quite knowledgeable and happy to help out the guests. The hostel also organised several social activities during my stay. Clean and tidy too. On the negative side there wasn't an oven which was annoying because they could have put one in the place of the broken dishwasher, they close the common room at midnight... More
