This is a great place to crash in for a few nights, it is a little bit far from the downtown nut the subway is stesp away. there is a bar in the first floor and it can get noisy after 11 pm. the breakfast is wonderful. I would stay again!!The rooms are small and the heater doesn not work properly so it could be very cold in winter inside.....

The rooms are too small and the music in the pub downstairs makes difficult to sleep well. Best breakfast ever! and the guy who prepares it is great!

Quiet hour policy is pointless if the bar does not abide by the policy as well. i was unable to sleep because of the speed metal the bar staff was blasting til they closed at 2 am. I was able to hear the music in every single corner of the hostel. either ditch the hostel or the bar. 28 people can stay but there is only one bathroom and three showers. also if a problem arises during the evening, as did on mine, the staff is not allowed to come and help as they are busy at bar.

Clean and friendly in a multi-ethnic strip of the Danforth and just around the corner from a Subway station. There's a bar and a coffee shop on the ground floor. In summer there's lots of outdoor terrace places to loaf or eat.

Great bar, great breakfast, close to the Subway (although not close to downtown). Only problem was that on the first night I was there I had gone out and come back late to find someone in the bed I was assigned, which isn't great. It points to either poor organization or poor security. I managed to find someone that worked there who found me another bed, but that wasn't great.

The rooms are a little cramped (there are only 3 rooms in total) but, overall, it's clean, friendly and quiet. Never had to wait for the bathroom or the shower and the living room area is super cozy. And a waffle breakfast with fruit in the morning? Wuuuut, so good! Easily worth the price. Oh, and the bar downstairs is on point. Great local brews and board games. Would definitely be back!

Far from the city centre, but right around the corner from Donlands subway station. Facilities are pretty basic, only 2 toilets. Breakfast was delicious, but it should start earlier than 9 am. Really wish there was a female only room; I had to change in the bathroom. Had it been fully booked that would have been really annoying.

i was not happy with dis hostel ,.first of all the atmosphere and layout are great and the people that stay there were cool ,but the room i was staying was like a suana one night then a meat freezer the next either way near impossible to get a got night sleep, also the music in the bar dosent stop till 4 in the morning.also someone should tell the cleaner not to empty the mop bucket into the bathtub it is discusting, also privacy the cleaner opens your door first in the morning and starts moping

Pros: Located within a 30 second walk of the subway which is brilliant for getting around the city with ease. The breakfast they serve is the best hostel breakfast I've ever had! The common room is great for chatting to fellow guests, or just chilling on your laptop. Cons: Sometimes it was very loud after midnight because of bands playing at the bar downstairs. The room I was in was a 10 bed room but was far too small to fit that many comfortably. Should be for 8 people only.

Great breakfast!

I wish breafast was earlier, 9-11 is a bit late for people wanting to start their day early, a simple cereal / fruits option for those who wanna eat around 7/8 would be great. Not best location but not too far either and a TTC metro station is 1min walk from the hostel.

By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. I've stayed in a 10-bed dorm room and everything during my stay was fantastic, the people were nice, the rooms / beds were comfortable, a locker was provided in the room, the breakfast was nice as well. There could maybe be more restrooms, but this is the only critic I have, everything else was just fantastic!

After a bad experience in a Hostel in Downtown, I decided to check this hostel and the breakfast which must be great as I read here. The Hostel is very clean and the atmosphere is more like a shared apartment then a hostel, because it's pretty small, maybe six rooms. The kitchen is very clean and the living room big, there's a cafe and a bar in in the ground floor and the rooms in the second floor, but I didn't hear any noises. Just the location isn't top, it's quite a long way to downtown.
