    Really fun, clean and social hostel. Perfect for solo travellers or if you’re traveling in a small group and want to meet people. There’s events going on every night like pub crawls or karaoke and all the staff are very helpful in telling you fun things to do in the day or good bars to go to at night. Zoe and Tiago were especially fun and helpful to me and my friends and took us to some good bars on the bar crawl. Breakfast was a decent size and there were $1 hot dogs on the roof terrace.

    I stayed in an 8-bed all-female room, and had an overall great experience. Really appreciated having my own safe to keep my passport in, and getting free breakfasts in the morning! The location is ideal- walkable from the train station and very close to restaurants and a grocery store. I was here three nights, and on the third the air conditioning was out...otherwise, this was one of the best stays I've had in a hostel.

    Great place for your money, super central location right by union metro station, amenities are awesome, beds are uncomfortable and feel a little dirty but other than that great bang for your buck

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The atmosphere was very good. So close to all the locations, you never have need to take the subway. Staff was helpful. They have events organized for everyday like pub crawl,open Mike etc which makes the stay very lively.

    Man, that was a very sick place to stay (positive!). The favourite thing of all the thingys is the crew!! Amazing peeps, friendly and some go above and beyond --> namely PETER and TIAGO (no, I didn't get paid to say this...). I would start to name all the beautiful female souls working in the hostels but I am running out of characters. Summa summarum awesome hostel!

    Loved our stay at HI-Toronto. No laundry facilities was a shame and also couldn’t get towels but luckily the evening made up for this! Absolutely great atmosphere in the hostel with fun games on the rooftop bar led by Thiago & Zoe followed by a pub crawl around Toronto. Both great hosts who made our only night in Toronto so worth it! Thank you for a fab stay.

    The location was great, walking distance from most things. I was in the 4 bed dorm, which was quite small, not a lot of places to put your bags. But the room was clean and the staff were lovely. Would recommend & stay here again. Also, would bring ear plugs as the air conditioner is loud!

    That was my second time staying at HI Toronto, 13 years apart from each other, and I can say that things didn’t change much. You can see signs of time on facilities. In my opinion the room and especially the bathroom needs an update. A nice touch is an easy to use safe for each bed. The hostel atmosphere is pretty amazing. Staff is really friendly and helpful organizing group gatherings on the bar downstairs. Location-wise is easy access to public transportation and main tourists sites
