The Canadiana is an ideal hostel for backpackers. I was traveling alone, but always found people to hang out with in the hostel. Furthermore, since I was going to Cuba for a couple of weeks in between stays at the Canadiana, I could leave a suitcase with winter clothes at the hostel for only a dollar per day. This service was very secure and helpful.

Decent, above average, hostel. I found the staff very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was great, a nice common area. My free breakfast bagel was pretty horrible though, it was stale, and not to be a food snob, but it wasn't even a real bagel. So breakfast was a huge disappointment. would have liked if top bunks had a shelf or something for personal items like cellphones (aka my alarm clock) and some hand towels in the bathroom would be nice

I LOVED staying at this hostel! The people were so great both staff and guests. Free tea all day was amazing. There are books to read, a fairly large common room. The beds are comfy (even if they are a little noisy). Large lockers to keep your stuff in in the room. Spacious rooms. Clean. If you're a party goer than it's great because it's off the main drag of nightclubs. It's only a 5 min walk away from the subway. I can't rate it high enough. I wish I could have stayed longer!

Everyone I met at the hostel was very friendly, and although I went as part of a group of 10, we met other people and had loads of fun. We only wish we that could have stayed another night to get to know more people.

Nice hostel, regulation on how much you can have for breakfast, the Location is just perfect all the places to see are in walking distance, I felt save as a female travelling alone.

A great hostel - perfect for longer term stays. The room was perfectly fine with lockers available and plenty of showers/washrooms. Breakfast was great. The location and staff were phenomenal! You can walk just a couple of minutes to great food and easy public transportation. The staff were very friendly and very knowledgable - some of the best I've encountered across the globe. Some slight downsides were spotty wifi and not super-comfy beds (all totally livable). I'd stay again for sure!

This hostel has an excellent location, however for the price I found the 4 bedroom dorm rooms small and overall the facilities were showing wear. In addition, the free breakfast only consisted of a bagel and coffee.

Thanks for your feedback – we work hard to maintain our Victorian buildings and the dorm rooms do come in a variety of sizes! Perhaps try a bigger (the 6-8 bed) dorm next time as they are very large and spacious. We are happy to be able to offer a free breakfast but if you would like a little something extra then we have a wide variety of breakfast items available for purchase (including pastries, fruit, yogurts, cereal, and more!).

It's a great and afordable hostel. It was my first time travelling alone and it was a really amazing experience. I could make new friends from all over the world and on the same day of my arrival I already went out with the new friends to walk around downtown. And I also could to get some value advice about knowing downtown of Toronto even better.
