Very modern and clean, nice and big open kitchen and general chill out area, not to mention the rooftop which is just stunning. Very social hostel, great to meet people, and close to the trendy hipster Kensington area which is super cute. Would definitely stay again

I didn't expect very much from this hostel due to the very cheap price, but I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing this place was. It is in a great location, just a 5/10 minute tram from Dundas Square (main bars/shopping) The general area is a cool eclectic mix of coffee shops and varied shops. The view of Toronto from... More

New, perfectly equipped and clean hostel in a college neighborhood(on a street appropriately named College St). A hike from touristy attires but convenient for local cool kids dining and shopping(right next to Augusta St Kensington Market, and hip Ossington and Queen St West). Free decent breakfast, lots of lounging space, and great rooftop. Very friendly staff were helpful as well.... More

Stayed in 5 hostels during my trip. Planet Traveler is the best hostel I've stayed. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. The whole hostel is clean and new. Breakfast is very good (a lot of cereals and bagels)! I really recommend this hostel.

The Planet Traveler became home for me for a period earlier this year - and I feel very fortunate. Without exception, the staff were amazing. Friendly, helpful, and generally good to be around. Located in one of the coolest parts of Toronto, that's easy to get to on the TTC, I can't really think of a reason that you would... More

I'm quite surprised by the abundance of great reviews for this place as it clearly needs a few changes. The first impression is great as the communal area is really nice with free use of the iMacs and a decent kitchen area. The bathrooms are also ok, they seem pretty good at keeping them as clean as possible and obviously... More

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

There is free Wifi, a launch to hang... More
