  • Great atmosphere during the long 7am-1pm breakfast, easy to meet people there. The hostel offers everything a hostel should, and extras like bike rental, landline phones, and a rooftop with a beautiful view. There was a shooting outside the hostel while I stayed there. It was very unfortunate, but I think an isolated/coincidental incident. I spoke with the police and with my friends at U of T and this is not a bad area of town.

  • The stay in Planet traveller Hostel was superb. Perfect accomodation and kitchen facility. I had good support and behavior form the Hostel caring people. I remember Mr. Matteo, Miss Camille..they all were good. If I would be in Tornto again I would choose this hostel only for myself. Great people, great time. Its a memorable experience.

  • One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Super friendly staff, very modern rooms and excellent in-room washrooms. Also, plenty of activities every day of the week.

  • This is honestly the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff are so friendly, the free breakfast stretches until 1 PM which is incredible. The rooms are great - en suit bathrooms?? And it's all so clean! I love the rooftop deck, and enjoyed the nights sitting up there with my fellow travelers. The fellow guests are all incredibly friendly. The location is perfect - close enough to downtown to be convenient, but just far enough to be a quiet place to be peaceful

  • Staff was helpful with public transit to/from airport and train station and provided recommendations for things I wanted do. The bathrooms were clean during my stay, and the common areas were well-maintained. Many of the travelers were nice and friendly, but it did feel a little "cliquey" as I learned there were some people there for weeks/short-stays on work visas and for school.

  • I was in a double room. It would be nice to have a table for the suitcase and a lamp on both sides of the bed. We were chilly but the staff was most accommodating and turned up the heat for us. It would be cheaper for the hostel to just have given us a second blanket.
