  • A great place to stay! Some noise from the road and a bit poor wifi, however, the staff is great and all the guest were cool. The first floor consists of a nice cafe and a good bar with a good selection of craft beers on tap. All the doors are secured and you'll need an rfid-key to get around, which makes the security quite good. There are also some lockers available.

  • The hostel was pretty nice, everything was fine, kind staffs and awesome breakfast! The waffle I ate in the morning there is, i think, the best out of foods Ive tried in Toronto. However, The location was a bit far from the downtown, I had to transfer three times to get to the hostel from the harbor. Also, in the bar downstairs, people play guitars, drums night... yeah it is written on the hostel info, but if you want to sleep early at night, then this hostel is not so good choice.

  • Some friends and I stayed at The Only Backpacker's Inn for 2 nights and were very happy with our experience. The atmosphere was great and the free waffle breakfast was fantastic. Great value, would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Toronto.

  • The Only Backpacker's Inn was great for me - apart from its quite offset location. Also, some people might be bothered by music humming from early in the morning until late at night.

  • A truly special place. I did not expect to feel so at home, but the staff were so sweet and down to earth. The cafe was my go to spot for daily work/reading. A cozy environment, quite peaceful and well decorated. I enjoyed the bar as well, the vibe was relaxed and inviting, with a good selection of beer. The location was perfect for me, outside of downtown, but close enough by subway. The rooms were good too. Beds, comfortable. All in all, I really love this place. Highly Recommended.

  • We only stayed a night, but this was perfect, even with the pub crowd we didn't have to wait too long to get checked-in. Keep in mind, as advertised anyway, this Hostel is on the top of a pub, if you go there for the weekend like us, I advise you to take a beer at the pub before heading for the bed, it'll help you.
