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 stayed here with my girlfriend over my reading during a convention in Toronto. 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

I stayed at this hostel for two days in March and it is a really nice but small and cozy hostel. I was due to check-in at 3 pm but arrived to Toronto an hour and a half earlier (wanted to put my bag away, free of charge in their storage room!), but the guy at the front let me... 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

I booked this location a night in advance and was also able to secure parking, which was well priced for being in such a busy city. The hostel couldn't have been in a better location. There was a market around the corner with many cultures, so food & shopping was always great. You could catch a trolley right in front... More

Very good hostel. Prices are reasonable, rooms and bathrooms are clean, facilities are really good and they provide breakfast until 1pm. Loads of different cereals and bagels to choose from. We were just below the rooftop bar but only had one night when our sleep was distrurbed - that was due to a birthday party but it didn't go on... More

Planet Traveler Hostel is a great central place to walk most of Toronto. Rooms small but comfortable for two (three would be a squeeze). Bathrooms excellent. Breakfast all you could want apart from a cooked meal. Fresh fruit, tea, coffee available all the time. Staff very helpful and friendly. Hostel laundry wonderful. Would definitely stay again if in Toronto.
