Spent one night here, overall very good place to stay. Friendly staff, excellent atmosphere, there is parking in the back, huge kitchen, laundry facilities, wifi, breakfast, etc. My only concern was the bathrooms smelled like pee but appeared clean, and the beds were soooooooo uncomfortable, buy new mattresses! Otherwise excellent place, I live a couple hours outside of toronto and will for sure stay here the next time I come into the city, much better than staying at a hotel :)

Stayed here b4 will stay again.. Great helpful staff and great location, a few blocks the CN tower and rogers stadium. With bars and restaurants close by to. Could in areas need a bit of renovation. They do hve things on each night for the hostelers but if u r on your line may find it a little differicult to get folk to talk sometimes but no like thing all the time.

Everything's good, except the shower is not hot at all, and the bed sucks.

The hostel is just around the corner of the tower. I liked it.

It's a huge hostel, but it doesn't feel like it because it's spread out over a few buildings. Rooms are spacious and the bed comfortable. The bathrooms weren't spotless, especially the showers. Location is superb: close to everything worth seeing in Toronto. All in all a nice experience.

So noisy. You can hardly sleep in the 6-bedroom apartment. The beds make so much noise.

Way to expensive for what you get, WiFi didn't work in our room, Showers stayed quite cold in the mornings, lockers not safe (there is no control who enters the hostel, staff doesn't care who walks in and out), breakfast was not good (dry pancakes with maple or on the weekends halffrozen, dry bagels..only one per person, if you want two, need to pay...) Sorry, but there are way better hostels in Toronto, only good thing about canadiana is its location and average cleanliness of facilities.

Was a good hostel, but at times a little run down and dirty. Overall a good stay - reccomended.

Free breaky isn't much, just a cold pancake or two. Location is reasonable, served its purpose but there are much nicer hostels out there. Staff barely spoke, everyone just sat in the common room on their phones, very different to most other hostels.
