Hayley Simpson thinks…

"I liked the property's location as it is within walking distance to Toronto's main, and best, attractions. The four-bed dorm was cosy but I liked the ability to have our own ensuite. The breakfast…"

18 November 2013 Customer would recommend this property

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.

Liked: The staff is very friendly and relaxed, all is in good conditions, clean and decoration is cool, I loved the bar "The Cavern" end the ambient music is super (a nice selection of music with a superb audio system).

Disliked: Bathrooms are clean and everytihing but they are really small. Is not a big issue I must say. Be prepared to a lot of night activity outside since this hostel is located downtown (ex. you hear the ambulances the hole night).
