Liked: Our first hostel we have stayed in in Canada and it has surpassed our expectations! The location is ideal with the Cathedral as a reference point in the city. The staff were exceptionally helpful. The discovery package is a great idea for members to get the best out of Toronto with minimum hassle. Additionally the food voucher per night of stay is a nice touch - very tasty breakfast and dinner here :). All in all, very happy a with our stay!

Disliked: Nothing at all, I think all aspects have been thought out thoroughly.

Liked: The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I paid in cash which automatically entered me into a draw to win a free nights stay and I won which was a great bonus. Would highly recommend, especially for those travelling alone as there's a bar downstairs and everyone is super friendly. I'm going back to Toronto next week and looking forward to staying there again.

Disliked: Nothing at all.

Liked: The meal vouchers were great. Big breakfasts or dinners to choose from. Great location and helpful staff.

Disliked: Not sure why but i didnt find it as easy as most places i have stayed to meet new people. Was not a major issue as i did meet some great people after a few days. That comes down to luck of the draw with regards to who is staying there more though i guess. All in all it was a top notch hostel that i would recommend to anyone.

Liked: The Cavern was pretty cool; the entire hostel had a nice vibe.

Disliked: Awkwardness regarding when is the appropriate time to switch off the lights in the room (it was a 10 person room but at 11pm there were still people who were actively up and in the room but others were in bed/almost sleeping).

Liked: I stayed at several hostels and this was one of the best. Good and clean bathrooms, very good location and very good food downstairs in the cavern. All the employees are friendly and helpful. I would go there again.

Disliked: the only thing that I disliked was the fact that we had to pay more than we expected because the price that HostelBookers shows you is not the endprice. You have to read the fine print and add a 10% fee on your price. That was the only dissappointing thing. But for the money you pay you really get something.
