Liked: The location was near some attractions.

Disliked: The price quoted by hostelbookers was not honoured.. They gave me a higher rate because I was not a member. It would be wiser to advertise the non-member rate. The washroom was cramped and uncomfortable. They gave me an upper bunk despite there being lower bunks available.

Liked: Nice location in the centre of Toronto, super friendly staff, delicious breakfast, own bathroom for the shared room

Disliked: The room was pretty small for four people, which resulted in really bad air during night time. Air ventilation/heating system was annoyingly loud and blew air into your face during night time. The room and bathroom seem quite old and battered but were at least clean

Liked: Very central location, plenty of bathrooms so never had to wait, good common area, brilliant breakfasts for the price.

Disliked: Got a little hot during the night as the air con was little undersized for the room, but it is only hot in Toronto for 2 months of the year so can't complain too much.
