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.

This hostel had the best vibe out of all the places I stayed during my US/Canada trip. Good location, staff and kitchen but the highlight was the rooftop terence. A great place to hang out and meet fellow travellers while having a few drinks.

Lovely hostel centrally located with staff that are willing to go the extra mile. Rooms were clean and spacious bad breakfast in the morning was a bonus nice too! Highly recommended

I have concerns about the fact that all my emails to this facility have gone unanswered. I had concerns about not being able to check in by the time the front desk closed and, later on, concerns about an item I may have left there. Neither of these emails have ever been responded to. Why?

I have stayed at Planet Traveler multiple times -- and for good reason. The facilities are clean, the complimentary breakfast is great, and I appreciate all of the extra touches such as having the lockers in the hallway instead of in the room so that there's less noise in the night. The only thing that could be improved is more room to hang things. I think that the rooms could benefit from a few hangers for towels and a small shelf near each bed to put things like eyeglasses or cell phones.

I will definitely recommend for anyone wanting to visit Toronto. The location is central and most tourist attractions are very close, as well as the transit system. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view. The only (minor) drawback was the limited parking but there was a public parking place about 5 minutes walk away. Really a top-notch place to stay.

This is just a lovely hostel, the location is great, the place is clean and the staff is really friendly. The ensuite bathrooms are really nice, every room locker has 2 electrical outlets and there is free popcorn and rice all day.

Very very recommend.......The hostel is near the university of toronto and downtown (chinatown) which is a big advantage to visit the nearby place by walking.

Nice location. If you are visiting Toronto and wanna do something special other than touristic stuff, this kensington market area is what you are looking for ! Seems like newly renovated but the washroom in the room that i stayed was a bit disgusting, like no one cleans it. A couple of staffs were pretty rude, and as i showed that i felt uncomfortable with it, they started to be nice, like they care of reviews :) Other than that it was nice staying there. The rooftop was awesome !

The staff were great: very helpful, welcoming and friendly. I received prompt answers to my email questions prior to my stay. Loved the rooftop and how environmentally friendly the hostel is.
