    The hostel was really great and the location perfect ! The breakfast was delicious and everything was clean and well-decorated. However almost all the lockers in my room were broken and I couldn't secure my belongings even if there weren't so much risks. Also the room doesn't have any locker to put the bag in...

    Very comfy beds. Clean. Decent breakfast with toast, boiled eggs, and fruit. Would stay again. Personal safes in the rooms, large enough for small valuables, but no lockers for your bags, which would be nice.

    Hi Toronto is definetly located in a good spot. You are just 10 minutes away from Young Square and Dundas Street. 5 minutes away from St. Lawrence Market. They have restringed area so you only can get when you do a check in, so it's pretty secure. Their breakfast menu is good for a budget trip. Private rooms are a little bit smaller than it seems on the photographs but it shouldn't be a problem since... well, you are supposed to be outside knowing Toronto haha They also have plenty of activities

    2nd time staying here. Very close to many of toronto attractions. I stayed in 4 bed ensuite room. Some rooms/bathrooms are cleaner than others. My stay at 10 bed mixed dorm had cleaner facilities but it's case by case. Staff were very friendly and accommodating

    It was a pretty basic place. The mattress was really comfy. Only major complaint was the bathrooms were quite dirty. Location was amazing. Close to subway and within walking to distance to lots of things.

    Great location only 10 minute walk from distillery district, museums, CN tower and the harbour. Heating system was a little faulty and could do with more bathroom and shower facilities but overall decent hostel.

    No hot water, that's how I can describe this place. The hostel location is great, about 15 minutes walk to/from the Union Station (central train station). But when I tried to take a shower there was no hot water in any of the available showers in 3 different floors. As I had an event and I needed a shower, I had to leave the hostel in the evening to find another place that could provide me the basics: hot shower. Previous comment report the same issue... I wish I had read these comments before.
