About Canadiana Backpackers Inn
There's a 10 ft Mohawk Indian in the lounge, a totem pole on the patio and each room is named after a great Canadian (everything from Bryan Adams to Neil Young). Every morning there is a free pancake, toast or bagel breakfast and a choice of tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
Every night we have fun activities planned (see further down the page for details).
Located right downtown in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District the hostel is a short walk to the CN Tower, the Air Canada Centre, the Theatre District, and some of Toronto's best shopping districts, bars, and restaurants.
We offer accommodation to suit everyone from private rooms (single and double), to quad rooms (4 people to a room), to female only rooms. All the rooms are spacious with thick, comfortable mattresses and extra big wooden bunk beds. Fresh linen and towels are provided for free.
The hostel also offers 24 hour reception, air conditioning, a free breakfast, free wireless internet, a large outdoor patio, an 18 seat cinema, a fully equipped kitchen and day trips to Niagara Falls.
At Canadiana you never need to feel alone. Every night we organize an event from pub crawls, to bowling, to karaoke, to barbeques served on our outdoor patio.
We offer discounts for ISIC, BUNAC/SWAP, VIP Backpackers, and Hostelling International cardholders.
If you read the guidebooks, you will see that for style, service, and atmosphere no other place in town compares. Here is what the guidebooks have to say:
'The super-friendly Canadiana Backpackers Inn is in quiet, charming Victorian houses with a great location in the Entertainment District'.
Lonely Planet, 2001.
'An assortment of young adventurous professionals populate the Canadiana, whose wooden beds and Victorian facade create a calm refined atmosphere. Its central location is near several hot nightclubs.' Lets Go, 2002.
'The Canadiana Backpackers Inn is booked and not surprisingly. It's clean and new and where people gather is even tastefully appointed. There's a patio on which guests are treated to free barbeques.....staff exceedingly friendly.'
Now Magazine, 2000.
