  • This is one of the best experiences I had. The staff is absolutely adorable (especially Maya, although they are ALL fantastic!), the owner makes our stay really special, by inviting us on Sunday to a BBQ (plus, it is free!) and I really liked the cleanliness. Close to everything, a antastic view of Toronto from the roof. A lovely hostel! Una de las mejores experiencias que haya tenido! Certainement la meilleure auberge de Toronto!

  • I arrived after midnight because my flight wasn't until after midnight and there was nobody there.... I called and I had no way in. I have a leg condition and cannot walk for long periods of time, but was forced to walk around the city for 4 hours looking for a place to sleep. They still made me pay for that night I didn't stay. The night I did stay, I had fun at the party on the roof. given that, I gave a high rating. beware of late night flights

  • This is the best ever hostel I have ever lived! While I only lived in hostel twice, one in Montreal and one here, I indeed felt myself at home in Planet Traveller. I was warmly greeted by the receptionist Carl, the guy from Liverpool. He was so patient to introduce all the stuffs in the hostels to me. I also made all friends from all over the world by staying here. We went together to ROM, and played games in the hostel. I will surely stop by next time I visit Toronto.

  • Very clean facilities and equally clean/modern motif to the building. Staff were predominately polite, helpful, and friendly. Free breakfast is served daily until 1pm, and fresh sheets and towels are provided. Location was fantastic and within walking distance to many of Toronto's attractions. Only complaint I can think of was the shoddy wifi, other than that it was well worth the stay!

  • The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Location is great with lots to see in Kensington Market and it's easy to explore the city from the Hostel. I only wish I was there in the summer time to utilize the wonderful rooftop patio. I will definitely be returning the next time I am in Toronto!
