Planet Traveler is a great place to stay, I would stay again if ever I need to. The vibe is great, the interior design is modern, minimalist and nature-y, the included breakfast is good, and the location can't be beat. Right around the corner is a dépanneur or convenience store for basic groceries, and there are a number of restaurants... More

I have stayed here a couple times and always enjoy it. My first stay I even had a room to myself! Great staff, amazing value. Always a good mix of people and great conversations. Clean, and near a lot.

Great location, super helpful staff, always clean, nice breakfast, big kitchen, fast internet. Couldn't ask for a better place. Nice rooftop where you get a great view of the CN Tower. Rooms area was quiet.

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm for 5 nights. Expect 2 noisy girls in my room everything was perfect! First it is very well located. It is 45min walk from the waterfront or 25min from the ROM. You can do pretty much everything by foot from there. Kensington market and little Italy are just nearby. The rooms are upstairs and... More

This is a very nice and centrally located hostel. Our check in went smoothly and we were fortunate enough to secure the hostel parking rate at $8 per day. The hostel is located near Little Italy and Chinatown. University of Toronto is located a few blocks away and the area is home to many bars within walking distance. We were... More

This hostel is pretty much like a hotel. Except you're sharing a room with other people. It's max 4 to a room and each room has an excellent shower and lockers. Rooms are well away from the common areas so sleeping is easy. The common areas are large but encourage socialisation, WIFI is good and there are a few computers... More

This place was unbelievably good quality for the money. The building is brand new, so the whole place is modern and intelligently designed. Both the room and bathroom were very clean and the selection for breakfast was varied. I would definitely come here again, especially with friends.

This was the best hostel I've stayed at. It was clean and breakfast was good. It was also near to places like Chinatown and Little Italy, which is a plus because I was craving for Asian food during those days. Everything met my expectations and I would pay more to stay at such a clean hostel again. I would recommend... More

Extremely clean, awesome staff, the rooms are really well set up (they each have an entry way with lockers and their own bathrooms) plugs inside the lockers (genius!) The rooftop is awesome to just hang out, jam sessions, have a beer etc... Made some great friends there, amazing expirience!
