  • People in this hostel steal your stuff! The lockers in the rooms are so small that only your purse can really fit. So your luggage cannot be stored in a locker and I got some of my clothes stolen! And the staff do not care to much about it.

  • I had such a lovely time at the Canadiana Backpackers Inn! This was my first visit to Toronto, and it surely won't be my last. You can't get a better location in downtown Toronto than this -- it was especially great for me, as I was in town to attend the Toronto International Film Festival! I highly recommend this great hostel.

  • Canadiana Backpackers Inn is an excellent option for travellers constrained by small budgets. The rooms are small but well-maintained, and the shared bathrooms are kept clean throughout the day. The location is ideal as it is right at the entertainment district in downtown Toronto; however, there are a few condos being built nearby so I'd recommend getting earplugs. For the price, the hostel offers a wide selection of tourist-friendly activities and facilities.

  • The staff were friendly and helpful enough. The street was a little hard to find, and there seemed to constantly be people sitting on the front steps leading up to the hostel, blocking the entrance. Bathrooms were clean, but the third floor only had one bathroom for more than two dorms, which meant having to go down to the basement for more bathrooms. For the price, it's a good deal though. I had an unfortunate experience with room mates who were very rude.
