Thank you for taking the time to comment! We agree with you - we think everywhere should be beer-where. However, Ontario Alcohol Licensing Laws are pretty strict and they don't think that way, so they don't allows us to have alcohol outside the bar area. Another thing they prohibit is alcohol purchased outside of the bar to be consumed or kept in the hostel rooms. But come on, we can still have a pretty good time at the Cav, don't you think?! =) Thanks again for the feedback.

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.

Hello there - thank you for your feedback. It seems like you missed our free coffee/tea station located in the guest kitchen/seating area, because we do have a free coffee station every day, all day! Maybe next time. Cheers.
