The Hostel is very good but there are things that could be improved. For Example the floors in the hole Hostel could be cleaner and our bedsheets were dirty and had some holes.

This is a good hostel. Very clean and good atmosphere. But not the best location as quite far from subways and the bus station.

The hostel itself was very nice and the staff quite attentive and helpful. The drawback for us was the room we had. We were located right on the street and with people standing outside talking until the early morning it was difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep! If you are not a late owl I would highly recommend getting a room in the interior of the hostel otherwise you won't get much sleep :(

Would be nice to have some chairs in the rooms. Best air in all hostels (we visited in the last weeks)

The best nights sleep I've had in a hostel and that was due to the mattress. The breakfast is served till 1pm so you don't miss it if you've had a late night. The only down side was the wifi. The signal wasn't the best and kept dropping

Best Hostel I ever stayed! Very, very nice staff! Everything was very clean and free BBQ on saturday was just great, met so many people from all over the world! Only negative thing I want to mention is the breakfast. It consists just of bagels and jam! But again, best hostel I ever stayed and absolutely good value-for-money!

Excellent location, good ensuite dormitories, very good breakfast served till 1pm everyday which was a great plus. Very attentive friendly staff. Would recommend this hostel to others. Very good price compared to many other hostels in North America and you get good facilities for this price.

Best location! Next to Kensington Market, my favourite place in Toronto, and walkable from Queens Park Metro station. Facilities are amazing. Everything seems new and super clean. Atmosphere downstairs is non existent, but go and check out the great view from the rooftop. Free breakfast until 1pm so unlike most hostels, you actually have a chance of making it down in time for bagels, bananas and cereal. Staff were really friendly and helpful. I recommend hiring a bike and exploring.

Great hostel located right by Kensington Market. Very clean, friendly staff, great entertainment. I happened to arrive on a Saturday which happened to be the night they were having a bbq on the rooftop. The rooftop by the way has a fabulous view of the skyline. Everyone in the hostel definitely added to the experience, awesome people. Another plus unlike other hostels that have breakfast from 7-10am this one is from 7-1pm, score! I will definitely be staying here next time im in Toronto.

Not so safe, they have a door with a magnetic card to go inside, but anyone can open the door if someone lose the card. The reception is not 24h, it closes at midnight, so the people has no place to stay after this. There is no wifi in the rooms!!!! Some day was a party at the rooftop that was night long one. A lot of people that wasnt there were allowed to get to the hostel, I thought this is so unsafe!!!! A lot of people going up and down, drunks... Not nice at all. Very small rooms.
