This is a really great stuff lace to stay in Toronto, close to Street cars and metro stations or within 20 minutes walk of Royal Ontario Museum one way or downtown the other direction. The staff are really friendly and helpful and thr place is spotless clean. If I'm back in Toronto I'll be staying here without a doubt

Best Hostel I have ever stayed at! Unfortunately I have forgotten a few names, but I would like to thank Robin (Brit) for a fun pub crawl, the Japanese girl for a fun quiz night and the guy with the big beard for a great 5$ hostel meal!

Really great hostel, I really enjoyed my stay here. Free breakfast is great, laundry room is really useful, amazing common areas and the location next to Kensington is surounded by bars, restaurants, everything.Atmosphere is great, lots of organized events but doesn't get loud in the rooms. Staff is international and super friendly, I totally recommend. Would just add a socket and a lamp next to each bed.

This hostel is great. They provide breakfast from 7am-1pm, and they are located about 10 minutes walk away from the University.

One of the best hostels I've stayed. Clean, staff are amazing, location is great. Roof top area would be amazing in summer (view is awesome). Ended up staying a few extra nights. Would highly recommend

The staff here is probably some of the best I have ever had the pleasure of encountering in my history of hostel stays... which includes a lot! The location is super close to the Spadina streetcar and from that you can pretty much get anywhere in the city that you would want to go. The facilities were clean and the view from the roof... well it was AMAZING! My only complaint would be that the WIFI was iffy in some spots but they were working on it and it seemed like an isolated incident.

I absolutely loved my stay. This is my first time staying at a hostel and I couldn't be more happier. Everything was as described and better. This hostel has set the bar for me for future hostels.

i haven't rated every aspect as excellent- however it was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in (and i've stayed in a lot!) rooftop bar was awesome. location was good by kensington markets (toronto is so big theres nowhere particularly 'central'). bar crawl was quite good but the british staff member leading it clearly didn't want to be there haha. We were there for xmas, and they did a FREE xmas dinner which was AMAZING- really quality food and atmosphere. overall i would defy RECOMMEND.

The staff were fantastic and the hostel was well run. Breakfast to 1pm was heaven sent. I loved having a charging port in my locker (I've only seen this in one other hostel). My only negative feedback would be the amount of space in each room; there was hardly anywhere for everyone to put their bags which could be trouble with some dorm mates.

Staff were really rude during the whole of our stay, I guess the awards were based on the facilities offered rather than the atmosphere. All common areas were shut at midnight which is unfair for those not wanting to wake up their dorm mates. The bar also isn't serving at the moment making it hard to meet other travellers and you are kicked out of the area at 12 anyway. The hostel itself is quite new and facilities are good but the lack of atmosphere and treatment from staff ruined the hostel.

Owner Comment (Hide)
I am sorry to hear that you couldn't find your groove at the planet traveler. For the most part my staff excel at welcoming guests and work hard at creating community. I apologize if you were not treated to the welcome and respect which our staff work hard to provide. Our staff rating is the highest of our review categories. We have five nights of activities a week which provide great opportunities to meet other travellers. Our bar allows you to bring your own drinks to the party. Travel well
