Liked: Each room had it's own bathroom, so you only shared it with 6 other people. Beds were comfartable and some of the staff were helpful. Not too expensive and not the worst hostel I've stayed in.

Liked: Excellent hostel with extremely charming and helpful staff. Great location; within walking distance of virtually everything... including the metro, tram, greyhound station and the CN Tower. Ultra clean rooms and well maintained communal shower and rest room facilities. If anybody knows how to do hostels it's Hosteling International. Stay here with confidence as you know exactly what you'll get; great service, plenty of free social activities, friendly staff who go out of their way to ensure you have a happy and pleasant stay and you can't beat the location.

Customer review

25 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Location was good. It was within walking distance to the nearby attractions like the CN tower and Toronto Islands, with a metro station nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful and organised activities everyday, which were listed on a board at the reception. The beds seemed to be a bit flimsy but apart from that it was great.

Liked: Excellent hostel and location, within walking distance of all downtown attractions. The staff at HI-Toronto are extremely friendly, super helpful, kind, courteous; they go the extra mile to help you with their invaluable travel advice and money saving tips, booking your onward travel hostels and Niagara tours etc. The common areas are excellent; pool table, juke box, internet, cosy sofas, pay phones, vending machines etc. There's a kitchen and Cavern Cafe serving an excellent menu for the budget conscious traveler. I would recommend and stay at HI-Toronto again. Stay here with confidence.
