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.

I stayed here for one night and it was good, but staying for longer I think would not have suited me, the dorm I was in was quite cramped for 8 people and there was only a main light. The staff were friendly and I liked the pancakes for breakfast. There are events organised for the evening which is a good idea but I did not get the chance to sample them.

very nice room and staff. Just that they don't lock the front door so every can come in. That's a bit unsafe. Wifi is a bit slow in the evening when many people are using.

The communal aspect of the hostel was great. Not very many times that there were not people in the lobby or dining area talking and hanging out. The ammennities that are provided were great from individual showers, individual washrooms. movie room, free pancakes, kitchen facilities, and great events planned each day. The staff are the best part. They are helpful and connect with each guest and make sure their stay is pleasant. One of the best hostel experiences

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.

Thanks for your feedback – sorry to hear you did not enjoy a hot shower. Sometimes if you are showering directly after another guest the water may take a minute or so to heat up.

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