What a dump. Literally. The atmosphere and vibe of the place is somewhere worse then the look of it. What ever happened to places with style and personality? At least paint the white walls and put some pictures up.. surprised I didn't see someone smoking meth in the bathroom.

The hostel is clean and nice, the staff are amazing and understand last-minute changes, thing that I appreciated a lot! I will definitively come back!

.The bed was clean but not the room, I think it's not because it's cheap that it can be dirty. It's written that the wifi is free but it's free only in the coffee. However the staff is really helpful and the location is great.

Top marks: close to activities/subway; great breakfast items; own bedroom in "dorm" for $ of 6-bed dorm room in other hostels. Room didn't look swept (small garbage on floor), LOTS of lose drywall on windowsill. Sheets & bed clean, comfy bed. Loved rooftop - met someone from "home"! Nice roomie! Would go back (and did). Helpful desk staff, but I knew of more events than they did. Note: Some might be scared off by the “late-night 'locals'"/hookers close by.

The staff were really helpful even though it was really busy, I appreciate that a lot! I also like that even the "shared" rooms have a lot of privacy in the individual dorms. The internet situation was really annoying because there were never any seats in the 2 rooms with free wifi. Also, the breakfast selection could be better. Overall I had a good time though :)

Room preparation was poorly carried out e.g. behind the doors, under the bed and under the tables had not been cleaned. Rooms advertised as twin rooms were in fact single rooms with the desk removed and an additional put up bed added.

Pretty awful as you'd expect for the price.

I would not visit it again! Like a prison!

A nice, basic, economical place to stay in Toronto. I stayed in 4-bed dorm room, which was very clean and quite acceptable. Security to building, amenities, staff, etc are all very good. My ONLY complaint is that it can get hot in Toronto in the summertime, and there was no A/C and only one window in this dorm room. So it was quite hot and stuffy with no cross ventilation, which made for restless sleep. I would recommend to the facility that they at least provide portable fans in each room.

This is a good place to stay for the price, not fancy, but comfortable dorm like accommodations for those looking for budget accommodations The staff were quite friendly and helpful with any questions. Sheets were cleaned and changed every day I was there. You might want to bring a pair of sandals, the floor doesn't get swept, the only drawback, but one that is easily dealt with if you have sandals. I liked my stay here, would stay again if I wanted a budget accommodation. .

Decent place, looks like college dorms , the atmosphere is alright, breakfasts are pretty good. Other than that it wasn't clean enough in my opinion but overall a good hostel to stay at.

A positive to this place is that it is only a 20 minute walk to the main shopping area. Around the immediate area of the hostel though there were some characters that Made me feel uncomfortable. As for the cleanliness on my last night I found a mouse in my room(I was in a private dorm), and the shared kitchen is grose. The only other upside is that breakfast is ok. Am going back to Toronto in a few days and will not be staying here.

Private room offered for hostel use was dark and filthy, with dated furnishings and paint. Backpacked 4 continents, sad to find home in Canada the dirtiest room/bathroom/hallway combo I've seen. - bed was half made. Make it, or leave me clean folded sheets. - sheets had many short and curly hairs :S - dust, dirt, stains, allover Loved the roof-top access, great view from my room, staff were helpful and friendly staff.

more expensive than expected- $300 for 4 nights. we were on a budget and this was all we could find downtown- uncomfortable single beds, no soap not enough towels. we could have paid a little more and stayed in a nice hotel. The complimentary breakfast wasn't much either- we had to go buy another elsewhere. short staffed too so we waited a long time at the front desk for service. clean and livable for a night, but will try to stay somewhere else next time.

The bathroom was not clean. No A/C, it was way to hot. The bed was totally uncomftable and bedclothes were dirty. I will not recommend this hostel. We payed way to much that it wasn't this good!!!

It was not really clean. Not having air conditioning kid a big minus, especially as the tiny fans they provide are not up to the task.

stayed there for 3 nights during world pride (late June). The location is really central. its only a 5 minute walk to the gay village, and 10 minute walk to Dunas square (the main square in Toronto). The room itself was high up on the 16th floor, with excellent views of downtown! The room itself was very average. We stayed in a two bed room with shared bathroom. The bathrooms was in ok condition. The hallways were a little dirty. You get a free breakfast. Bit pricey at $40/bed. Would stay again.

Almost all hostels that I have been before offer free wifi also in rooms.
