I stayed at the Canadiana for a number of months while working and exploring Canada. I found the place to be great. It's well run, clean, and changes and improvements are always being made.
There are bedbugs but at the moment they are a big problem all around North America, not only in hostel type accommodations, but in four and five star hotels and so on. Many people aren't affected by bed bugs at all, and others the bites come up awhile later, so it's often difficult to know if there is a problem in a room. I happen to come up with them straight away and if I mentioned a problem it was always addressed straight away.
In my opinion the hostel is doing many things to eradicate the problem with replacing beds, cleaning carpets etc. and it is working.
Canadiana like any other has a different atmosphere from summer when things are very busy to winter when things have slowed down. But at least there you have many options of places to go such at the communal area, the quiet room, the large patio or just hang out in your room.
After traveling around Canada I still have a high opinion of this hostel and think that it's a great place to stay. If you're there to go out and have a good time it's easy to do that, but it can also be a place to just relax and chill out. I found other hostels around Canada including the HI's and other private hostels just did not compare, and I would stay again anytime.
