if you wany a hostelcthat is more of a home this is the place. the hostel offers pretty much a self managed home. i recommend this hostel to people who have already been to toronto and already know the city and how to get around. the hostel is fairly clean and Mei does q great job at cleaning the place every day! one down fall my mixed dorm meant me and 5 other guys i wish it was a little more mix than that.

Just stayed for a few days here and it was one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in! Staff were super friendly in the hostel and in the bars and cafés downstairs. The breakfast is amazing, there is a lovely atmosphere throughout the whole building. The only thing I can think would be an issue is the noise, however they do play good songs so go get a beer and join them! Thankyou for the trip!

it was overall a nice place. amazing breakfast and the pub is cool. The problem is not the music in the pub, the problem is the people that smokes and chat in front of the pub, In the room in the front where I stayed, one can hear everything they say. Probably you can ask people in the pub to not do that.

Cranped messy room , dirty enough place. Fairly far out from the centre. I switched to another place on College that was much nicer for the same price. It had a good cafe downstairs though

I have only good things to say about this hostel. It's extremely clean, comfortable & homely, with great common areas to hang out in. The waffle breakfast is possibly the best hostel breakfast I have ever had.

The room I was staying in was extremely hot, and very cramped. The noise from the street didn't help much either. The hostel itself was clean, and the free breakfast was great, so other than the sleeping part I enjoyed my stay.

its really good. especially breakfast is wonderful. How can they make waffle with abundant fruits! but due to bars downstairs, pretty noisy during sleeping time and the bed has poor elasticity, so my sleeping is not well. But entirely service and facilities really good. I recommend powerfully!

Pros: fantastic breakfast, great common areas including a back deck and BBQ, location on subway line near many shops n restaurants. Good vibe Cons: security weak in back door area requires manual locking. Not always locked. People can easily climb up onto deck and break in. Pub below can be noisy at night. Beds sag in middle can make for uncomfortable sleep. Kitchen needs more utensils. Area is sketchy at night. Subway station was recently robbed. Lockers are too small. Crowded rooms

Fantastic hostel and I didn't want to leave, the place had everything you needed and everyone is so friendly. It is also an ideal location as it is right next to the subway station. Wouldn't hesitate to go back!

I really liked the hostel. It's conveniently located right next to the subway. Clean and has a great breakfast however I wouldn't stay here again because unfortunately there is a bar right below the rooms with loud music playing until 2am so if you want to sleep it's very noisy and difficult. If you are planning to stay up until 2 every night or can sleep through a lot of noise I'd recommend this place.

Great hostel, nice neighborhood, sociable. Some rooms are a little small but acceptable. Great patio out the back will be awesome in summer. Fantastic free waffle breakfast, best hostel breakfast I've ever had!

I want to say just how awesome this hostel is, but I also sort of want to keep it a secret to myself, so that it doesn't get too overrun with new people. It's my favourite little secret in Toronto.
