Loved The Only! It's colorfully decorated, a block from the subway, and great for meeting people. Most people staying here have just moved to Toronto and getting settled, so if you want to meet other travelers to go see the sights, that may be hard. The common spaces encourage socializing and the kitchen is well-set for cooking--group dinners were great. Homemade waffles with fresh fruit and cream were aweome; served 9-11 (or 10:45 if the grouchy bartender is working). Would totally stay again!


is my second time in the only backer,and like the first time,i really had a good time,is very clean,the staff is happy to work there(you can feel in the air)so it make the place very confy and you don t want to leave,and great place to meet people,i will come back,see you soon.


The hostel is new and well project with all comforts. It's ideal for a weekend in Toronto, the metro is very close to the hostel and the breakfast is very good.
