Property Description

Welcome to Planet Traveler Hostel, the friendliest, greenest and most comfortable hostel Toronto has to offer.

At Planet Traveler we work tirelessly to ensure your time in Toronto is as enjoyable as possible. We understand that it’s guests that make a hostel stay memorable, and from the abundance of amenities to the friendly staff and exciting daily events, we do everything we can to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Our turn of the century building has been restored from the ground up to suit the needs of the most discerning traveler. The property has been renovated and rebuilt into a purpose-designed hostel incorporating the latest in green technology: geothermal heating, photovoltaic electrical production, solar thermal water heating, building-wide LED lighting and wastewater heat reclamation.

Secure dorms have custom-designed hotel style ensuite bathrooms, private locker areas and extra comfy memory foam mattresses to ensure the best night's sleep you'll ever have away from home. Cook up a feast in our fully-appointed kitchen or relax and meet other travelers in our beautifully designed common area, which features a fireplace, phone booths, a dining area and an awesome couch where you can watch TV, movies and major sporting events.

Enjoy a hearty free breakfast everyday until 1p.m., tailor-made to give you those vital extra hours’ sleep after the night before. Make sure you take time to chill out in our amazing rooftop lounge with panoramic views of the breathtaking Toronto skyline.

Our location in the heart of downtown Toronto is minutes away from the best the city has to offer. Kensington Market, Little Italy, the Annex and Chinatown are at our doorstep. These neighbourhoods are famous for their diverse mix of bars, restaurants, cafes and great shopping opportunities.

Overview

At Planet Traveler Hostel, we're not only the greenest hostel in Toronto (our heating's geothermal and solar powered), we reckon we're the friendliest, too. Every morning we serve a free breakfast until 1pm, just in case you fancy a lie in. And all through the day, you can help yourself to tea and coffee to take up to our rooftop terrace. We love it when people make new friends, so come on one of our free pub crawls, sing your favourite song on karaoke night or come with us to Niagara Falls. And if you've still got energy to spare, join us for a fitness class on the roof.

Location

We're in the heart of downtown Toronto, a 15-minute walk from Chinatown in one direction and Little Italy in the other – favourites for their mix of bars, cafés, restaurants and shops. The easiest way to get here from Toronto Pearson International Airport is by taxi – it takes about 30 minutes. We're 15 minutes from Union Station Bus Terminal – catch metro line 1 to Queen's Park Station then take tram 506 to College Street at Major Street and we're a minute's walk away.

Rooms and Dorms

Our shared dorms and private rooms are fresh and modern, with en-suites and secure locker areas. Every locker includes a handy power socket for overnight phone charging. Towels and sheets are free, and you'll appreciate the so-comfy memory-foam mattresses. You can choose mixed, male- or female-only dorms. Like all of our rooms, they have air con.

Extras and activities

You can get cosy by the fire in our communal lounge or slouch on the comfy sofa to catch the big game or put on a movie. The popcorn's our treat. If Twitter's your thing, keep on top of your feed using our free Wi-Fi and one of our iMacs. If you like to cook your own meals, get creative in our kitchen. Checking out but leaving late? Leave your bag worry-free in our luggage store.

    I had a superb time at Planet Traveler Hostel. The staff were friendly and accommodating, and gave me many helpful suggestions for traveling and sightseeing. The facilities were well-kept, and very secure. The hostel itself was right next to the Kensington Market and other great sights on College St., so there was a lot to do within walking distance. Ultimately, I will most definitely stay at Planet Traveler again the next time I'm staying in Toronto.

    This place is great. One minor thing is that the walls at least in the "private room" sections are were thin so you can hear everything through the walls. Maybe another point is that the rooms are very small. However, overall, we had a great time.

    A very pleasant place to stay! I wish that you could go on the rooftop or kitchen after midnight, but maybe they're worried about security.

    Decent hostel! The staff were really great also. However they didn’t have a lot of activities on throughout the day, in comparison to other hostels ive stayed at; and I personally find that a good way to meet people!
