  • Very clean hostel on a good location, if you wanna go to bars on College Street etc. Downtown is also near enough to walk. There was crappy wi-fi and there could have been more power outlets in the dorms. Overall - pretty quiet, clean and safe hostel. No bar there, but you can find some just across the street.

  • Great hostel - really modern and good swipe card security card system. Bathrooms were better than a lot of hotels that i've stayed in. Only negative was that the wifi was really slow and cut out completely quite regularly.

  • I really appreciated my stay in Planet traveler. Staff is welcoming. Station Bixi Bike beside the hostel. If you are looking for a social life, don't hesitate to choose this hostel, the rooftop is AWESOME ! ;)

  • PT is a clean, modern hostel, with a generous amount of bathrooms (one per dorm plus extras in the halls and lobby). Under an hour walk from the train, and next to Kensington Market. That said, it was not a good fit for me. Big and impersonal, and definitely for a specific type of crowd (hipsters, party-goers), so that if you're a quieter, more laid-back person you will feel out of place. May be the perfect hostel for some, but I will personally stay elsewhere next time.

  • Incredible facility in a perfect location for the crowd. Easy access to public transport. Only comment is to be more helpful to people driving in, as there was no parking available near building, which the website suggested.
