I stayed for 6 nights and everything was great. I was welcomed by the staff who showed me the good places to visit and have me a map as well as showing me around the place. They all seemed to love working there which was great. The room (6 bed mixed dorm) itself was well equipped with lockers, a really... More

Bus stop around 10 minutes walk and 20 minutes walking distance to St Patrick Subway station. The good things are : 1. Free tickets for Odysseo are available. Wa, the horse show was amazing,a combination of beauty and strength!... More

Had an amazing time staying here. The staff are so friendly and helpful; very social atmosphere for meeting other travelers. Free breakfast!!! Good value, the neighbourhood (Kensington Market) is great to explore, close to public transit (streetcars and subway) and walking distance to downtown, spotlessly clean! Lots of fun activities planned throughout the week like pub crawls, karaoke night, etc.... 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....

The only downside was that the washroom was shared between 4 rooms which held 2 people each, so... More
