Global Village Backpackers

Toronto, Canada

Best value for money in a perfectly central location in downtown Toronto. Can't understand all the haters who rant about bad service and lack of hygiene. Yes, the room was very basic, and in busy times a single shower and toilet per floor might get a bit crowded. But the staff was perfectly friendly, both our room and the bathroom were clean, and the pancake breakfast was great. That in combination with the central location and the unbeatable price: Highly recommended.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Boxes to lock belongings available (however only 6 for 12-bed room) and locks can be borrowed for a refundable 5$ deposit. About 1 h by car (33 miles)from the Yosemite Valley Visitor Centre away and a 5-10 min walk from the Bus stop at highway 140. Very idyllic on a hill, dorms are individual wooden sheds with bathrooms/toilets and showers ensuite. Free internet acces via kitchen computer or wireless lan. The spa (10 $) is a must after a day of hiking! Great stay
