Hostelling International Toronto

Reviewed February 21, 2007

This is a horrible place. My partner and I stayed here only one night, and ran from the place the following morning. The rooms are filthy, there are stains all over the carpet, and the sheets that were on the bed were covered in hair. The air conditioning unit was a death trap, it was humming loudly all night and was hanging off the wall. The electrical sockets were bare and were yet another serious hazard. The location is good, but if you need to stay in a low budget hostel try the one on King and Spandia. This place will ruin your stay in Toronto, avoid at all cost.

We rent a private for more than US $30 a day. It may seem a good burgain, considering the location of the hostel. However, after staying there for just one night, I was bited for more than 20 times by the bed bug. Every place being bited was unbearably itchy , practially ruined my vacation. In fact, I suffered for another 2 weeks after returning to Ann Arbor. Should I had known this was a buggy place, I would rather spend another few ten bucks and get a good night sleep. Maybe not every room in the hostel has bugs, but I don't want to try my luck again.
