    I stayed for two weeks in Höstel Toronto and i can recommend it to everybody. The locaion is perfect, you can walk everywhere for sightseeing, like for the CN Tower, Toronto Islands, Distillery District or the museums (it takes around 20-30min). The farthest away is Casa Loma; but it is possible to walk there in 1.5h and explore the city. Supermarkets are just around the corner and even a NoFrills, which is a very cheap but good one. The staff is very nice and supportive if you need any help.

    This hostel is very well located and has so much potential. Unfortunately, it falls short on many points. For one, the cleanliness standards appeared to be very low. Our sheets were impeccably clean, but we found dust, an empty box of cookies and a bottle of juice under our bed. The shared shower did not have a curtain, making the bathroom floor very slippery. There were no paper towels or hand dryer in the bathrooms. Also, the front desk could not provide us with soap or an ironing board.

    1. The stairs are dangerously steep and I ended up with a sprained ankle. 2. Someone checked in around 11.30pm and when the staff brought her to the room, he didn't care that half of the dorm was already asleep and switched on the light. I have never stayed in such an ignorant environment before. Besides that the showers were leaking and it smelled like weed everywhere.
