Je recommande cette auberge de jeunesse! Jadore

Perfect place for anyone on a budget just looking for a clean and decent place to stay. Staff were friendly too. Sadly I missed the free pancake breakfast- and only by a couple minutes! I'll be staying here again.

Good hostel, is just 10 minute walk from Union Station. Clean, good breakfast and free tea and coffee at morning.

This hostel has an interesting atmosphere; Many people are staying here long-term, not just for the weekend. Because of this, it made it feel very cliquey, but we found a welcoming group and still had a lot of fun. Overall, I would highly recommend it. Great location and value for money.

The social atmosphere is what this hostel is all about. Bathrooms were always very busy. I received a "room upgrade" upon check-in to a 3 bed dorm which was a nice surprise.

Yeah place was decent

The room was right next to the foyer where all the residents would hang out at night so it was absolutely impossible to fall asleep as you could hear the people talk up until 1 or 2 am. I left on my second day and moved to another hostel.

All things were great, but the roommate was terrible.

위치도 괜찮고 보안도 나쁘지 않지만 시설은 보통입니다. 제가 묵은 도미토리 방에선 콘센트가 구석에 있어서 찾기 힘들었네요. 아침은 별로입니다. 팬케이크 한종류만 있어서 누가 먹으려고 갖다놓은줄 알았습니다.

Très bel endroit! Rien à dire (de négatif bien sûr) sur cette auberge! Propre (douche très bien, spacieuse avec le détail qui fait la différence : la petite tablette pour poser ses affaires et ne pas soit les laisser traîner par terre, soit les détremper), silencieuse et salle commune avec une déco très chouette, on s'y sent comme à la maison. Et un bonus : le petit déjeuner avec pancakes à volonté!

Situé dans un quartier animé de Toronto et à un personnel assez jeune. L,endroit commence à ce faire vieux mais c,est une place de chois pour s'amuser et profiter de la ville.

The hostel itself was okay, however, I stayed in the 8 bed female dorm for one night and although a certain level of noise and disruption is to be expected - 2 girls had no consideration for other people in the room trying to sleep (popping bubble wrap at ten at night, loud conversations with other guests after the bar in the room - guests that weren't staying in the room I might add). You can also hear the other hostel guests coming home from the bar at night and they are quit loud.

Though we do have some long term guests, we do also have a number of travellers - we hope you were able to meet some at our nightly events like movie night (in our great theatre!) and wine and cheese night!

Canadiana is a cute little hostel in downtown Toronto, in close proximity to ample bars, pubs, restaurants and clubs. They have a different activity organised for each day of the week which are usually free or cheap. I found that most of the people there were long term travellers looking for jobs in the city. This at times made the atmosphere in the hostel less exciting and harder to meet like-minded travellers. Over all we had a great time. But have definitely stayed in much better hostels. :)

Very friendly staff, great location. Have only marked down Facilities because of the parking lot. Entrance incredibly narrow; actual parking spaces also tiny and very difficult to navigate when full.

Glad you enjoyed your stay at our hostel and made the most of our central location! Sorry to hear the parking lot was difficult to navigate - there is also free parking on the street at night and parking lots in the vicinity should you come back!

Thanks for the feedback. We do try to keep our kitchens equipped with numerous pots, pans, and kitchen utensils as well as enough cutlery for our guests.

Good hostel. Clean and tidy however the bathrooms weren't always so clean. Great friendly staff who were very willing to help out with information and questions. Location was good. Only a short walk up to a few things including the CN tower and the waterfront. Good, well organised tours and events run by the hostel

Glad you enjoyed your stay and that you found our staff friendly and helpful! We do clean our bathrooms multiple times a day and are sorry to hear you found one that wasn`t clean at the time. Hope you stay with us again in the future!

Canadiana provided a clean, private, two person room for an affordable price on an expensive NYE. The staff was friendly and informative, and had we not already made plans there was a list of activities run by the hostel we could have signed up for. I highly recommend this bustling, well run hostel.
