Great Hostel. Definitely the best i've ever stayed in Toronto! Great location and the free breakfast was an added benefit

Highly recommended!!! Probably less of a communal atmosphere than other hostels but we were travelling in winter, so less people around in general. Super clean, super comfortable and staff particularly friendly. Excellent, above average facilities and their breakfast is a real breakfast! Any variety of bagel you could ask for, fruit and cereal. Amazing kitchen facilities with everything you could need to make your own food on a budget. Wicked top floor balcony that would be sweet for summer!

Everything was outstanding, perfect! The breakfast was almost overwhelming, and so were the facilities in the kitchen. We had an awesome stay! If there would be one thing that I could 'criticize' it would be the description of the location. Not acquainted with the city, I read 'Our location in the heart of downtown Toronto' I thought that was quite misleading, although the Kensington Market is close .. true, but I consider the Younge-Dundas square as downtown, but that is open to debate ..

Planet Traveler is an excellent hostel. It's just a short street car ride to the city center or 20 minute walk. Right next to Kensington Market and near a lot of good restaurants. The hostel was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, they have a badass rooftop, and the free breakfast until 1pm was amazing! Definitely recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Toronto!

I really like Planet Traveler! This was actually my 3rd time here! It's in a great location, a good 20min walk from the eaten centre but the area it is in is great, the staff were really helpful and the free BBQ on Saturdays is great. But the best part was breakfast till 1pm, with so many options. The only downfall (if any) was the fact that there are a lot of long term people staying there and from my experience I feel a few people made the dorms like their own rooms. But overall it was great!

A modern hostel for fair accommodation. Breakfast is different brands of bread and corn flakes. Some rooms located on 3rd floor and only accessible by stair. Clean kitchen with a variety of equipment. Walkable range from tram station.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I arrived much earlier than my check in time (7am) and they did their best to get me in to a private room early.

It's a lovely place to stay in downtown Toronto. It's so close to everything, you could just walk to wherever you want to go. great location! It will be better if they can work on the wifi, because it had no reception at all in the room, also, it often stopped even though you were in the common room or the roof.

It is a good hostel, nice location but not so good as HI Hostel. The staff is really good but for having fun or meeting people is not so good as they don't sell beer and unfortunately this helps. The roof is outstanding, with a perfect view of the city, is the bar there as working it would be a must. The room as too small and I didn't have where put my things! A elevator is missing also.

Loved how big it was. Lots of room for plenty of people to cook, watch TV, use the internet, etc. 20 min walk from Queen Park Station, right by U of T. Would definitely stay here again.

Great hostel, would recommend to anyone! Really good bathroom facilities, and good free breakfast! Love the fact the bed is made ready for you!

Wifi didnt work in at any point in the dorms. Security poor- anyone could let visitors in with their key without ever having to go past reception. As a result one night male guest accompanied female to all girl dorm at 3am and stayed in room the entire night, did not feel safe.

The hostel is totally brent new, very clean and secure. I felt at first that was a little far away from places, but when you learn to use "TCC" ( kind of bus there) everything gets easier. I really think that was a best choice! ✔️

Noticed that the back stairwell was used to store supplies leaving not much room to use as stairs - hope this is not an emergency exit route...

The rooftop terrace was the BEST! We watched a free movie (with free popcorn) one night, and sat and watched the sunset on the next night. The breakfast was also excellent and saved us a lot of time and money trying to find elsewhere to buy it.
