Liked: Central location, close to the Airport Shuttle. Quad rooms have their own en-suite attached. Though those with a lot of luggage will have to use one of the luggage rooms.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

25 October 2010 Sukanya would recommend this property

Liked: Great location from all places, good connectivity. attached bathrooms fro each dorm - makes life easier. co-ed rooms were a surprise option.

Disliked: The 8bed - 12 bed dorms are crammed - much smaller than what we saw on the net. pics are misleading. if you can afford it, would recommend a double or a quad option (quad options are co-ed!)

Liked: Good facilities, well maintained.

Disliked: Free WiFi is good if you have a laptop, but isolates people from each other - the lounge was silent but for keyboard tapping. I didn't have one so a short amount of free computer would have been nice or the ability to buy less than 1hr at a time.

Liked: I liked the price, the kitchen staff, location, and the building set up.

Disliked: The staff were so boring! Very anti-personal, didn't care about making a connection with any of the travelers! As a Canadian myself, I was disappointed to see that this was how the hostel was run.

Liked: Kitchen was a good size, quad rooms were reasonable.

Disliked: Moodiness of cook in the kitchen one morning when 10 orders came in - shocking quality of food compared to other mornings. 8 bed dorm which the size of room would have been better suited to 6 - no room for luggage at all. Had to switch rooms mid stay - not really helpful. Tax hit on arrival - price on the website should include everything - no mention on booking info huge extra cost. Breakfast not included with all rooms

Liked: I liked the fact that the staff was very helpful and that the location was very convenient to everything, from the harbor to yonge and dundas square, the mall. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Even though check out is at 11 they will let you hang around for a little while just in case your flight may be a little later. I would definitely stay there again.

Disliked: I didnt like the fact that since i wasnt a member I had to pay an extra 20$.
