staff were absolutely terrible, inattentive rude and aloof. the only atmosphere to speak of was the loud dingles out the front, no fun to be had anywhere else. never paid this much for a dorm bed, never again
Really is a hotel with a few dorm rooms, not hostel-y at all. Bed was fine and great locker provided but room very noisey next to big road. Common room had virtually nothing to cook or eat with and no drinkin allowed which sucked. Very close to great arts district
pretty good place for a bed, but a few problems. no social common area (besides the rubbish expensive bar in the basement, which gives the hostel a no outside alcohol policy which they obviously do not advertise), and because of this a nice 'hostel' vibe is pretty diminished. located in the financial district pretty far from Queen St or anywhere to go out which too
No colour whatsoever needs some real hostel charm and atmosphere. Besides the sterility very good
Great spot. Staff hooked me up when I really needed. Kinda sketchy wifi and cold showers and really thin blanket provided though. Other guests a bit lame but not really hostels fault.
one really really awesome staff girl and the rest were poor. some of my clothes fell off the balcony and the actual manager said not my problem and went off for a cig.
one great staff girl but others needed some lessons in hospitallity
really top new hostel, bloody great common area. really one of the best
the bed rooms were amazing (the new ones with curtains bed lights etc, the old ones suck) BUT this hostel is so over rated! no kitchen, not allowed to use bbqs, no decent common area, no internet in rooms, it just made the reception really busy and loud. wouldnt go back unless you want to spend alot of money in the restaurant/bar next door
this hostel is actually pretty cool but just a bit strange. its like hanging out in the owners living room, its sweet but wouldnt recommend if you hate smoke. there was like no security but i felt completely fine leaving my bag under the bed. would go back for sure

and a pool table too
they do not say in the description but this is a MISSION, like a christian run hostel, complete with bibles discussions and the new testament for free. was a big suprise when i got there, especially not being able to drink alcohol in or even outside the hostel. no security at all but i felt safe leaving my stuff on the bed. good kitchen with free food shelf. no wireless is a major downer. staff very nice but not much help with knowing where to go out etc. stay here for peace and quiet i guess
the 'dorm' was disgusting, a mouldy smelly basement with dirty matresses and pillow. the staff didn't know where the toilet was, and only had one key for a 10 person dorm (luckily i was the only one in there, except some guy who unlocked the door at 2am and slept in an unmade bed to disappear in the morning...) complete lack of security unless you count the lock on the door. expensive as hell! nice breakfast. the rooms were actually good, ONLY go here for a room!!!
´´hostel´´is a joke filled with old men or little kids nothing included in price faux niceness of staff very patronising
pretty good for the great price. neither amazing nor bad. nice enough staff, who dont really give a damn which is always good fun.
stuggled to see the "retro" aspect besides the posters, dont expect to see any 45s or turntables... nice hostel but would NOT recommend for people looking for fun, drinking, meeting other travellers, especially young ones. we were the only under 30s, maybe even under 40s and it was slightly awkward drinking and socialising in the common room. seemed to be a cheap place for older people. staff were good, the buzzer concept is strange but works i guess.. close enough to the old town and big mall
