Great location but the hostel was quite noisy, I could hear a lot of partying to my room. Plus there was a mixed up in the four person room i was staying in - it was accidentally booked for five people and the mistake was noticed in the middle of the night. Otherwise, the central location and the friendly staff made it an okay place to stay in.

Good location. Facilities, especially the kitchen, seem a bit run down. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I really liked this hostel. It's clean and there's a great atmosphere. The employees are very nice and helpful. You can find vending machines to buy snacks and beverages at a fair price. The coffee machine is also great. Coffee is free at breakfast time, then it's just about a dollar any other time. You can also buy tickets for the hop on, hop off bus here, book your day trip to Niagara Falls with great discounts! and the City Pass booklet, as well as many other things you can do here.

We had a problem with our car which was blocked by another car. This was a big problem for us because we rented the car and had a flight a few ours later. The owner of the hostel decided to book and a pay a limosine to the airport and the hostel brought the car back to the rental company. What a great service!!!!!!!

I only stayed here one night but would definitely come back! The Australian guy at reception was super friendly and helpful when I arrived late at night and the pancakes for breakfast were great.

Our stay at Canadiana was fabulous - clean facilities, planned activities to get people socializing and a great location. Big shout out to Dan and Trina for planning a great night out and making everyone feel welcome and Madeleine from reception for her helpfulness and friendly manner. Shame we couldn't stay longer! Love from Maarit, Emma and Katie.

Really nice and comfortable hostel. I only stayed one night and i was at the end of an exhausting trip, so didn't have a chance to join into any activities, but they sounded great! I was lucky enough to get the bonus double bed in my dorm too! I'll definitely stay there again next time I'm in Toronto.

Had an amazing stay at Canadiana, even though I couldn't participate of their nightly activities. The staff was friendly, very informative and really helpful (Our Niagara tour guide forgot me and my boyfriend at the Falls, and someone from the Canadiana staff was really kind to contact the tour agency and helped us find him! Thank you!) The place is quiet during the day but the atmosphere and design of the hostel makes it very welcoming. I loved Toronto and will come back to Canadiana.

We had an excellent three night stay at the Canadiana. Friendly staff, good accommodation, and an excellent karaoke night. The one let down was breakfast, but since it was free, it seems a bit churlish to complain too much!

Great location, helpful staff and decent rooms. Liked being in the separate house as it wasn't too noisy. Loved the free pancake breakfast in the morning :)

I stayed at this hostel for 8 days and can highly recommend it. On check in the staff were wonderfully friendly and the facilitieswere excellent. The location is perfect for exploring downtown Toronto and the atmosphere in the hostel was lively and friendly. I would recommend taking the tour of Niagara falls that you can book through the hostel as it's the cheapest around and well worth the money. Overall a great place to stay and I hope to return one da

There's no better location, short walks to every part of the city! Free pancake breakfast with tea and coffee in a lovely common area. Room and beds were clean with a private bathroom per room, which I found very convenient. They even have parking lots right behind the house, which made our arrival and stay in Toronto a lot easier. As the atmosphere among the guests is great and people sit together in the evening, I would definitely go there again!

I didn't really get to see much of this place I basically checked in, dropped my stuff off and went out to Khao San Road (Thai food) for some late dinner. The layout of the room was weird and sadly they had metal bunk beds that weren't the quietest to sleep in... There seemed to be a fairly active social scene in the main building but I stayed at one of the buildings next door number 48 I recall. The hostel is not the newest but does have a positive vibe about it
