Ok firstly I have to say this one of the greatest hostels I have stayed in. Over a 10 day period I stayed here twice. First time in a mixed dorm one the 3rd floor. I was spotless clean and comfortable. On my return I stayed in a private room 11a on the first floor and it was a nice... More

Choose this hostel because of the reviews on here and they didn't lie! Stayed for a week, firstly in a 6 bed girls room, then moved to a 6 bed mixed. Bedrooms/bathrooms are so clean and the showers are huge. The staff are really friendly and helpful, WIFI throughout the hostel, rooftop is great place to meet other people and... More

Great location - an hour away from the airport by public transport, but still downtown. Tons of nice places around to get great food or drinks. :) Clean - this place was cleaner than most of the hotels (not hostels, hotels!) I have stayed in. Friendly - Stuff is helpful and friendly. There is free Wifi, a launch to hang... More

I stayed in a private room with share bathroom. Room was very basic - bed, floor lamp with bare bulb and mirror. Thankfully the window had a large ledge and there were two hooks in the door to put things. A bedside table wouldn't go astray. Bathroom was shared just between 4 private rooms so easy to access and clean.... More

Myself and my partner stayed here in a private room for just one night, but we wished we booked our stay in Toronto here. The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, you get an amazing breakfast, a free BBQ on the sat night, a rooftop bar, excellent area and all for a cheap price! Im not sure what the... More

Importantly, the staff is REALLY devoted and make sure that you have a great stay at any moment. The hostel is well-organized, clean, and located in a nice part of the city - a second away from the Kensington market. I'd recommend to anyone visiting Toronto.

All the staff were increadably helpful and kind. When I arrived (late mind you, as I got lost on the way and walked a mile in the wrong direction) the man at the front desk checked me in and gave me a small tour. He showed me the kitchen, the laundry, and then took me to my room. It was... More

Private Room is right at front of hostel with 3 large windows facing main road. Having people knock and hang out, with some glass between your room and the public. Apparently you need to book more then 4 months in advance if you want a room that isn't right at the Main Street street level. Its as though the room... More

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
