This is a new hostel and still learning the ropes as a result. Cleanliness was noticeably poor, and I have fairly low standards for a hostel. I think the reason is because they use certain guests as cleaners as part of a payment arrangement - better to pay a professional, I think. No lockers in the rooms, and the kitchen cupboards and fridges were full of old food which stank. Staff not always on duty and sometimes quite brusque. Still, for location and value it might be your best bet in Toronto

Josh welcomed me and was wonderfully friendly and helpful - other staff could stand to learn from him. Key cards to enter all doors = very secure. Walking distance to the old town, Latin Quarter an Arts District. Rooms very clean - honestly, we don't need towels changed every day! Free breakfast is good but WHY use powdered milk? Change to real milk, seriously. Great wifi throughout the hostel, sadly this makes for some antisocial guests! I recommended M Montreal to a friend and would stay again

This HI is a great example of a hostel. Key cards to enter all doors makes it super safe and everything was clean to good hostel standard. It's walking distance to everywhere you want to go. The staff were really helpful and friendly, making for a great atmosphere. The bar is a lovely place to hang out in the evenings and meet fellow travellers. All the facilities you need; lockers in the rooms, individual lights for beds, and wifi that supposedly shouldn't have reached our room but did...

Great place in a great area. Internet is affordable, breakfast is free and the best we had during our travels. Homey the cat is awesome and the staff were helpful, though rather eccentric.

Very sleek and well run, nice rooms with keycard access. Downsides: breakfast and internet are too expensive to be utilised. You're a bit out of the centre, but trams are easy to use.

Not a warm hostel, and I don't mean temperature. They charge 1 euro for 10 mins on the web. Wifi is free. Breakfast is 3.50, we got a fresh pastry and drink from a nearby bakery instead for around 2. Very secure, and rooms have nice decor, but we were stuck with no window in a plain offshoot from a pretty room. Reception was busy and we always had to wait. Staff weren't friendly. Big and modern, a hostel chain with no personality.

Free breakfast with good selection (would prefer normal orange or apple juice though). Friendly place, a minute from the Duomo, would definitely stay there again.

Really good budget hotel. We had a great balcony, a sink and shower in our room, and they even gave us a free map on arrival and pointed out all the transport routes to get to the sights and the train station. The staff were very helpful and spoke good english, and there was a free breakfast, which though not delicious was FREE. Those afraid/allergic to dogs beware, they have a huge old labrador that is harmless and quiet but very present.

We had a huge window looking out over the streets which was great. Just a few doors down from Gaudi's bone house Casa Battlo. Easy to use metro is very close by. Breakfast is ok. Don't be to excited to have a reading light - ours were broken. Big lockers in the rooms.

Very secure, en suite bathroom was a nice luxury, big lockers with electronic locks. Common room provided but not a great atmosphere. Sun terrace is lovely. Breakfast is great too.
