  • The bathrooms could use some improving, and the tea/coffee setup in the common area was a bit lacking, but things felt organized and clean, and the staff were really great. The included breakfast was quite nice!

  • The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. I arrived late at night and there was some trouble with my original room. As a replacement I had a perfectly normal folding bed - but I got the night for free! The next day, I was upgraded to a nicer room than booked, also for free. Breakfast is made to order, fresh and delicious. Lots of choices! The rooms are a bit small, but there is plenty of common space. And the girls in my second room very super friendly. The hostel is really downtown. Great!

  • Everything was Great, Especially the breakfast was so delicious, I really love this hostel. But I think they should change their Card key system, that was really annoying.

  • This is such a great hostel. The staff are extremely friendly, organize daily trips for guests to go on. Definitely recommend doing one of these, you meet so many people just from it. In future, this will be my first place to look at when back in Toronto. Only downside is slow wifi, but you're in Toronto, it's a small sacrifice!

  • My overall stay at HI- Toronto was really good! Rooms were reasonably clean and well-maintained. The staffs were nice and friendly. I would highly recommend it to travellers especially those who are travelling with a low budget.

  • Breakfast took far way too long to get. The line was long and if you had an appointment that morning, you either forego the breakfast or miss the appointment. Otherwise it is a good hostel. I like it!

  • WiFi is only really available in the common room, little if any in your room. The night light for each bed is a nice touch, it'd be nicer if it was plugged in or was in any way close to a wall socket. 1st night I was sitting in the common room & could see a puddle forming around the toilet there. I then saw 3 different members of staff use the toilet and none did anything about cleaning it up. Kitchen is closed at 9pm, so good luck if you're hungry when you get back late from sightseeing.
