Had the best experience at this hostel compared to others by far. Staff are friendly, rooms are on the small side but it wasn't really a big deal and they were always very clean. Breakfast was bagels, toast and cereal and went on till 1pm which was fab if you wanted a lie in. Lots going on almost every night... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Planet Traveller and we already miss it! What a great atmosphere ! The location is perfect, it's surrounded by many restaurants and bars and close to a street-cars line. The staff is smiling and helpful. They organize activities every day: pub crawl, karaoke, movie night and BBQ on the rooftop. And what a view... More

This hostel is absolutely amazing! Everything's super clean, the staff is very friendly and the location is within walking distance of downtown. They organize every night a social event which is great to get together with fellow travelers. Even if those are not your thing, just hang out at the awesome rooftop lounge. The breakfast is included and was totally... More

OMG! I did not have much of an expectation for this hostel because it is located in the center of the city, but I was excited at the prospect of learning about the environmentally conscious renovations they had implemented in the building. I have to say that not only did they give a grand tour upon arriving, but I was... More

I stayed here from 28 July - 2nd Aug with my friend from Uruguay. The hostel is strategically located next to Kengsington Market and Chinatown. Around the area, there are many restaurants, bars, mini-market and even the hospital is right across the road if you need it. It is a short walk to everywhere - shopping, sights etc. The hostel...

We chose this hostel for its location, green features and enthusiastic reviews. We booked a private double with a shared bathroom, planning to stay four nights. We stayed only one night, but secured a credit on our Visa card for the remainder. The problems were: the room itself was at the end of a dark and narrow corridor, off which... More

I came here because they told me there are no bed bugs, which I suppose its true, the room was 35 CAD. In a very small 6 bed bedroom, along short and very squeaky beds. There where noises coming from the sealing all night preventing me from sleep, probably bad piping, when I complained to the manager he avoided me... More

Clean, really well located and good facilities at this hostel. Breakfast is great and staff are friendly and are able to give great recommendations of places to visit and eat while in Toronto. Really good events organised on the Roos terrace in the evening (thanks for the kareoke Ben!!) that are a nice way to make friends. Thanks very much!

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
