Our building at College Backpackers has recently undergone extensive renovations. The College hostel specializes in providing low cost, clean, comfortable private rooms for travelers or students visiting Toronto. We offer the best value for single overnights, weekly or monthly accommodation. Free WiFi is available.

At Kensington Market you and your friends are literally just meters away from affordable food and fun. Set yourself down for drinks and sip fancy cocktails while listening to live DJs spin some tunes at a local club. If you are looking for accessories and vintage clothes, there are plenty of places to shop. And for a break from the busy city streets, take a stroll around the University of Toronto campus, which is a sight on its own right. The area is surrounded by Restaurants and pubs. Public transport is steps away.

Each of the private rooms offer double bed (some rooms available with two doubles), television, local telephone. We also offer your dorm rooms. Each guest is provided fresh linen at check-in and every guest has a private dedicated locker to store their valuables. All rooms have wooden flooring, heating and air conditioning and private balcony.
