    Quite clean, the only thing i hate travelling alone is that budget travel, the hostel per se is very clean, clean by professional staff. It's good reasonable price, central to everywhere

    HI Toronto Hostel is by far the best hostel in Toronto in every single category you can think: Security, Location, Staff, Atmosphere, Cleanliness, Value For Money, Facilities. I can't think of any reason for going to a different hostel other than HI Toronto. I had previously stayed at "Planet Traveler Hostel" for 1 night, and Planet Traveler Hostel was really bad, particularly their offensive staff, so I moved to HI Toronto, and thanks to HI Toronto I had a great time in Toronto. Thanks, H.I. !

    Great location and staff, and the atmosphere was great. The place was pretty clean - the only thing that grossed me out a little was that the were other people's hairs in the comforter. Other than that, it was a great experience, and I would stay there again

    Overall great experience, place has a bar under which was great for getting to know others. Free continental style breakfast and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Location is convenient to pubs, Nathan Phillips square, union station, subways, and we even walked to the art of Ontario museum. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and come back

    Loved my short stay in this amazing city, the atmosphere and the staff/ fellow travelers were great. Could maybe do with adding larger storage facilities in the shared dorms though. I’ll definitely be back for longer in the future.

    Was a decent place to stay at while I had a couple of days to kill in Toronto after the holidays. It's in a nice spot, easy to walk to anywhere, and even take transit. The rooms were also alright, with big windows, great for sunlight, with alright views. Other than the small bathrooms, it was all in all a great vibe and would recommend it. I did only stay for a couple days, but for those staying a lot longer, the kitchen could be bigger.

    The staff here were excellent, super helpful and friendly. Has a great time here for New Years, the Cavern bar is pretty banging for that. Great location and had a pretty comfy sleep. Security system is a bit annoying and had to get cards changed in the early morning etc. Plus the lack of hot water form time to time. Once annoying thing was closing down an entire floor of showers to clean them at 10am, so which is pretty grim when you're trying to shower before 11am check out.

    Good location, friendly and helpful staff upon arrival. Kitchen is tiny and gets busy/crowded quickly so not very suitable for a lot of cooking. Comfortable rooms - I really like that there were powerpoints at every bed and a light. Bedroom was slightly cramped and difficult to store larger bags. Bathrooms were limited, i.e only 2 per floor. Bar downstairs had a decent atmosphere. Overall a comfortable stay for a short period of time.
