  • Hostel was great, however for most guests this was home, they live and work in Toronto, so it didn't give the typical traveler vibe.

  • Very loud. Some guests kept singing and stuff even in the middle of the night. All noises from the lobby/common space came through the wall. Also I got no key to the room so it was open for anyone to enter, which I thought was a little unsafe even though it was a shared dorm.

  • I will only say that I killed 3 cockroaches while using the bathroom. That should be enough for all of you

  • A great location and cheap price however it seemed most of the people in the hostel were living there not just travelers and they have a cockroach problem.

  • A cheap option for staying downtown. Location is worth it all. Nothing spectacular--a bed to sleep in. I had no problems whatsoever with this hostel.
