Liked: The staff were outstanding. Everything was very clean and organized. Showers were hot and food was fantastic. Great job eveyone! I perfomred on the VIa Rail train from Edmonton to Toronto and back. Offerings were opposite ends of the scale. And I enjoyed the swanky train and the practical hostel equally.

Liked: The breakfasts in the morning were phenomenal and the staff were lovely. The beds were comfortable and the lighting in the rooms was excellent.

Disliked: The music was played a bit too loud, it was hard to hear other people down in The Cavern, as well as in the lounge area on the first floor. I also was concerned there were no mats for when stepping out the shower, seemed a bit of a health risk to be honest.

Liked: 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 was great in the morning and all front desk staff I spoke to were helpful and friendly.

Disliked: There wasn't much of a social atmosphere here - every time I walked past the common area everyone had their heads in their computers and there was no interaction. I also thought the price was a little steep for a hostel, but I guess Toronto is a big city so that's what you get!

Liked: facilities were good, laundry, common space, patio and close to train station

Disliked: I got bitten by bed bugs. The staff during breakfast were rude and unhelpful. My breakfast was half an hour late and I was blamed for not listening when they called my name, but I was waiting patiently the whole time. not a problem to be late but I was made to feel bad about asking.
