  • Definitively a very nice hostel with one big exception. There are way too many Germans! And I mean that in a negative way (since I'm one of the I am allowed to say that). It was 7AM breakfast an there were 10 people already there. 9 of the were Germans including the receptionist! When I'm on vacation I want to get rid of german people (especially of our mentality) and meet other nationalities. Unfortunately this was not possible during my stay which for me ruined this location.

  • It was one of the best hostels I ever was. The people are very friendly and cooperatively. The Location was great, because you just need a few minutes to reach downtown and the rooftop was amazing. The only thing you could critizise is, that the lockers are too small for your luggage.

  • In Canada they do not give the wash rag with the towel, so bring your own set.

  • One of the best hostels that I have stayed in the past 10 years of traveling around the USA, Europe, and Canada. I flew up to Toronto, Canada for a weekend to attend the Pan Am Games. I was impressed with the hostel check in and common area which offered Mac computers for the guests to use. I met some interesting people from all around the world. It was wonderful to chat with them and find out about their travels in Canada. The bathrooms were modern and rooftop had lively activities each night.

  • It's simply a great hostel in a fun neighbourhood. Roof top bar and a terrace with, some might argue, the best views on downtown Toronto are the biggest plus. Hostel is clean, security is good and staff is always there for you. Easy one to recommend :)

  • This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The location is great, the place is clean, the staff were friendly, the events (bar crawls, baseball games, etc) were fun. There's a very nice rooftop area. I met some very lovely people here and will likely be back the next time I am in Toronto.

  • One of the best hostels I've stayed in. The breakfast was great with a huge selection of bagels and cereal. The view from the cool roof top terrace was amazing and the bathrooms were more like those you would expect to find in a hotel.
