    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.

    The hostel staff was very polite and willing to help. Other than that, I would say the facilities in most respects were rather inadequate. The building is indeed old and could have had a unique character, but as it is, the feeling is rather negative and the atmosphere cold. The access through Carlton is perfectly fine, but some of the southern neighborhoods should be best avoided, especially at night-time. I am sure that with the necessary care and investments, it can greatly improve.

    Location is good. The place has potential but it's just not inviting, I didn't want to spend time in there. It's poorly decorated, there's no sign outside, no mirrors in bathrooms, no lockers in the dorm rooms(!)...I'd read all these complaints in other reviews when I booked; most of them are really easy to solve if they pay attention to what their customers are saying, but seems like they don't care. What a SHAME! I wouldn't recommend it.
