Property Description

Gosling’s Landing is a newly renovated, family run hostel tucked into a quiet neighbourhood right in the center of the city. It is your home away from home in the heart of Toronto! We've got a nice and big common area with comfy couches where travellers can meet one another, and an awesome workspace for those looking to get in a few hours on the laptop. Our kitchen is also well equipped for travellers who like to cook. Whether you’re here for a few days or a few weeks, we’ll take you under our wing. No Gosling gets left behind!

We are nested right next to Toronto’s Kensington Market/Chinatown neighbourhood, surrounded by an endless supply of local restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops. Other nearby sites include Graffiti Alley, City Hall, Yonge & Dundas Square, CN Tower, and Harbourfront. Located a block or two away from four major bus/streetcar routes heading in all directions, it's easy to get around town. As we're on a quiet street, you can sleep without the sound of traffic while also being minutes away from all the excitement.

Our mixed dorms and private rooms are perfect for young, adventurous travellers looking to meet others here to explore or move to the city. We're nothing fancy. Just a small, humble home. Unlike most commercial hostels, we don't always have someone at the front desk. But as long as you're comfortable and happy, we're happy!

    I would highly recommend this hostel and would stay here again if I’ll happen to be in town in the future. Right by Kensington Market, the coolest area of town! There’s coffeeshops, juice bars, with organic and gluten-free options, the best!

    I stayed at Gosling's Landing when my usual hostel was all booked and it thoroughly exceeded my expectations; I will be returning here from now on! Cozy environment, excellent wifi and outlet availability, very attentive staff. Nothing negative to say whatsoever! :)

    Amazing location and the family that runs the hostel is amazing. The hostel is clean, fun and really centered around community and located 5-10 minutes away from Kensington Market and the entertainment district.

    Enjoyed my brief stay at the hostel, and particularly liked the layout of the everything. The common sitting area is central and the reception, dorm rooms, washroom facilities, and kitchen surround it. Other than one backpacker that was arguing loudly on his phone in the next room between midnight and 1:00AM, my stay was very pleasant. The centrally located location just steps away from Kensington Market and Chinatown is perfect. I would consider staying here again for sure.

    Really enjoyed my stay here, such a well thought out hostel. Everyone was so nice and I felt very safe. It's easy to get to from the airport via the UP Express and 505 bus and you can pretty much walk to any attraction from the hostel. Everything was spotlessly clean and organised with great little signs/instructions everywhere. Will definitely be returning. 😄

    Wengsi is super friendly & the location is great (near Kensington Market, a short walk to Queens West & College Av). I felt safe as a woman traveling solo. There’s a code to access to hostel & your room, lockers, & families with kids live near by. There was some free food in the kitchen & good priced restaurants close by. Only complaint is that the comforters were not clean. My original one was smelly so I grabbed one off another bed, it was also smelly. Alma replaced both.

    Great, clean little hostel with excellent hospitable host. My only complaint was the rooms were hot during the summer but Wengsi did what she could to help cool it off by adding a floor fan and turning the AC down a bit lower. It did make a difference and we were all able to sleep much better and and less sweaty! Since they are newer they are working out some kinks so don't be afraid to give them feedback during your stay.
