    I've stayed here a couple of times when I've visited Toronto and loved each time! The staff is very friendly, it's always clean, there are plenty of bathrooms/showers open for use, a nice lounge area to work on stuff or just relax, and it's near everything you'd need! Would definitely suggest this hostel.

    The staff was very friendly and gave me two free towels. There was soap in every bathroom. Most hostels where I've stayed there is never soap and you have to pay $1 per towel. My room was very nice and quiet with a flat screen, microwave, refrigerator and double windows overlooking a quaint street lined with Victorians. If booking online beware of a small surcharge when converting money. Given Hostel Toronto's modest prices this is not a major issue. All in all, I would return here.

    My stay was odd. The gentleman who checked me in was super helpful sorting out a problem with my booking. However, something was wrong with the heating in my room. I was completely comfortable and fast asleep but it seemed to be a big enough issue that they came into my room 3 times to try to fix it before 8am. At one point they just left my door wide open. Earlier start the next day but they were cleaning the bathroom at 7:45am. Just a bit odd and mildly inconvenient. They're very nice though.

    Very Good

    Lovely location, clean building and friendly/helpful staff! But 'No Alcohol or Drugs is allowed on property' - $100 fine supposedly. There's no music or and the pool table costs $, so the common room is very quiet and the hostel has no real atmosphere. Essentially - perfect for good sleeps, catching up on work or reading books. Top location for adventures into Toronto, but don't be expecting any fun hostel parties or easy mingling.

    Very Good

    The hostel is pretty clean and new, I think that is good for the money you pay. The location is ok, is a bit far from downtown but personally I like walk in the cities so it was not a problem for me walk about 30 minutes to get to downtown, if you want there are the bikes that you can rent from all over the city, they are pretty cheap and there is a stop right next to the hostel. It is not a “party-hostel” and the common area it is always quiet. Coffee and tea for free.

    Staff here were very friendly. But the room I was in was on the lower level, and there was only one window facing a wall outside which meant no natural light coming in. Felt like a dungeon so not great for spending long periods in. The common area is okay but small.

    I stayed for 3 nights and the stay was OK. There isn't much atmosphere. If you just need a bed to sleep then you can crash here. In the dorm I stayed, the door is dodgy af! It made noise every time someone opened and most times the key didn't work. The caretaker tried to fix it in the middle of the night, which is very annoying. I wouldn't stay here again. Only good thing is the staff - friendly and helpful.

    I found this hostel downright awful, and I would never stay again nor recommend it to anyone else.
