  • Well, it's a dorm. But excellent value for the money and very friendly staff. Much cleaner than most dorms, but still leaves a lot to be desired.

  • I missed a coffee maker or some kind of kettle to boil water in. The room would have been too cold if I hadn't managed to cover the air conditioning with heavy brochures. The water fountain on the second floor was a nice surprise.

  • Fastest Internet ever but you need to bring your cable or pay $5. I had to meet several people in UofT and around so it was very convinient for me.

  • Rooms are very noisy with doors opening and closing all night. Beds are uncomfortable. Rooms are very warm despite claiming to have A/C.

  • I had a very lovely stay at the University of Toronto. It is a very safe place and the location is great. It is in walking distance to Downtown Toronto and the castle Casa Loma. The staff was very nice and friendly. The only minus would be that there is no wifi on the hostel so you need to buy/bring a caple in case you want internet access (and who does not these days?). But in general i higly recommend.

  • Unbeatable value for money in Toronto! Will highly recommend to anyone looking for well appointed budget accom. Only suggestion would be to make baggage storage more secure and upgrade towels. The towels are child sized. Otherwise, great!

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
