Good hostel and facilities, a pity the kitchen closes at 9pm

It's at a great location! 8 minutes walk to downtown area, and there's a lot to see and but. Small restaurants and cafe everywhere around the hostel so dining is not a problem at all! The hostel also offer very delicious breakfast, and lots of city tours. After all I had a very great experience staying there for 2 nights! Thanks to the Australian guy who recommended it to me^^

The staff took this place to another level. The reception and the cooks were all very friendly and helpful. The a.c. in the room we stayed in the first night didn't work very well, but they were glad to switch our room for the second night. they are in the process of updating the a.c. units and in the second room we were set up great! The cave in the basement served great food which was part of the price included for the room. also they set up a huge projector for the world cup games!

Centrally located, lots of activities, great atmosphere, and very comfortable mattresses. The only gripe I have is regarding the really early close time for the kitchen (9pm) ... most hostels have 11 pm as their close time, which suits me better (and many others), as I tend to have late dinners as a matter of course. Other than that, excellent place to stay!

An ideal place for discovering the town, situated in a lovely part of town. Good atmosphere.

I had a nice stay in Toronto, the hostel is clean, has comfortable beds and nice and helpful staff. The only thing I can complain about is the live-music. It is a good thing and the music was definitely not bad, but you can hear it up to several floors, although it is in the Cavern. If you are sensitive to extreme loud music while wanting to sleep, try a bed on the upper floors and do not forget earplugs.

Hello and thank you for the feedback. We are happy, despite some noise, you seemed to have enjoyed your stay and the free live music held at the bar. Also - the hostel does offer FREE earplugs at the front desk, so even if you do forget yours, you can always get some for free at reception. ;) Safe travels

The hostel was in a nice, safe area but a bit removed from nightlife. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the hostel setup was nice with a big common area and a bar downstairs.

The best. THE BEST!!! Absolutely care-free living. Nobody tells you what to do. Nobody bangs on the bathroom door--they go to one of the mannny public stalls available. In the kitchen, I could freely operate the many sinks, and stove-tops and again, everybody's very non-judgemental. I stayted 5 nights--best vacation I ever had simply because of the environment. Combine cheap cost to stay, a kitchen so you can cook and save money(versus eating out), sundays and tuesday is cheap pint night!

This was the worst hi hostel I stayed at. Here goes my list: -i couldnt pay with a credit card that uses a signature -the rooms were way to small for 8 people -the staff was very unhelpful (concerning the creditcard thing, the guy just said:"you better figure this out fast if you dont want to sleep on the street") -my roomcard almost never worked (no, i didnt store it close to my cellphone or cc) -the kitchen closes at 9pm, WTF? -the matress felt like stone -no real events

Hi Toronto is great place. But what I didn't like is that hostelworlds didn't say that the price on the site is for only Hi Toronto member, if you r not a member they will charge you 5 doller extra for each night when you get there. Anyway the place is great and the staff are so kind

Great place to stay and meet people in the bar downstairs. Staff friendly and helpful and activities organized for each day. Only pain is no plug points by each bed.

Great location downtown. A walk from bus station but easy to find. Really helpful and friendly staff on front desk made things really easy.Great city maps,+advice on where to go and what to do. Hostel was fine, fully equipt kitchen with lots of space to store food,not very busy as most people seemed to eat out or have breakfast from the hostel. Atmosphere-bar downstairs,but in main common area just a load of people using wifi and not interacting with other guests which was sad.Free computer use.

Very nice hostel. I stayed in a 10bed mixed dorm. Beds were very comfy, especially for bunk beds. People were good. Not very noisy, but i always bring ear plugs to hostels just incase. Would definately stay here again. Only thing is i was under the impression that meals were included, however they are just available from the bar downstair, you still have to pay. Other than that was a good stay.

Hey there - we include breakfast with our 6 and 4 shared rooms and private rooms. All meals are super affordable, and all guests are welcome to join in our restaurant and pay very small amounts for awesome food! Cheers
