    Great hostel. Me and a couple of friends arrived in Toronto and this was the hostel that we book. It was a great decision, which we do not regret. The hostel is just 50m (around the corner) from the subway station, even though it is not located in downtown, you can get there really quickly. We loved the bar downstairs. They have many variety of beer. Wish we were there longer so we could try all of them.

    My second stay at this hostel. I was so impressed with my first stay in May I booked in again. The rooms and bathrooms are really clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. I used the washing machine and driers both times that worked well.

    This hostel was very nice. I hightly recommend it, the staff is really welcoming and the localisation is perfect (1min from metro and 15min by metro from the center). I just stayed 3 nights but I met extraodinary people.

    The hostel is located literally 30 seconds from a metro station so even though it isn't downtown, everything in the city is accessible. The staff are amicable and helpful, the atmosphere is nice, and you have all the facilities you want. One of the hardest things for hostels to get right is cleanliness, especially in showers, but here they absolutely nailed it--everything was clean and great. I'd definitely come back!

    It's a nice hostel with good atmosphere. Not located downtown but there's a subway entrance less than a minute away. I'm a solo traveller and was there for 4 nights. The staff are incredibly helpful with anything you want to know about Toronto or to make your stay pleasant. The only thing I didn't like is that the air con stays on through the night and you can't control it or turn it off. I felt cold at times and I actually had to an extra blanket which they provided me with very kindly.

    It was a super fun stay at the Only Backpacker's and I will most definitely come back! Everybody is nice and you can enjoy your vacation and the city just how you want it. It's location is not the best but easy reachable by Metro so it was all fine:)

    Very Good

    Entrance is a coffee shop for check in, no matter how much they Ignore you it is the hostel reception. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm it was very dirty and they’ve crammed too many beds into the one room. The top bunk has no railings so it’s really difficult trying to get down. Power outlet at bed which is good and lockers too. No reading light. The bar is cool but not ideal for solo travellers as it’s full of locals etc so no one really wants to chat to you so difficult to meet fellow traveller
