Liked: Great breakfast, good location, strong fast wifi that was available in common areas and the bedrooms. The rooms are quite small but the shower and locker area of the room is separated so you can close the door and not wake others while getting ready. Staff were helpful and friendly. Would recommend.

Disliked: Rooms were small so it could get stuffy in the rooms but the staff will change the air con down if needed.

Liked: Great location. In between King & Queen Street where a lot happens. 10(ish) minutes walk to Union Station. Had a bar/eating area (The Cavern) downstairs where they held events most nights. Gave free drink coupons and 50% off food tickets for first night.

Liked: The staff are super super friendly! especially Raj! The hostel was also kind enough to host a Christmas Turkey dinner for everybody something I'd never experienced at a hostel :) made what could have been a lonely Christmas super comfortable. Generally they have clean facilities, computers, good WiFi access, big couches, a rooftop bar and open outdoor area, 2 TV's, phones, full kitchen facility, clean bathrooms, great location for the Kensington Market also. I liked the fact that the owner is very involved and clearly cares about the everyday running of his business and it shows.

Disliked: A couple of things could be improved but nothing really worth 'disliking'

Liked: The layout of the hostel, was well thought out. Loved that we had bathrooms available in the rooms. Toilet facilities were always clean. As was the kitchen, which was incredibly well equipped for a hostel. It almost felt like a bed and breakfast instead of a hostel as it had a very homey feel to it. The owner even organized a free Christmas dinner for those of us saying on Christmas eve at the hostel. Which was absolutely fantastic, we all enjoyed it throughly I might add.

Disliked: Nothing to mention.
