    Gross hostel, wish I could give 0 stars. Dirty, loud, bad beds, bright at night. Overall terrible experience. Would feel safer and cleaner sleeping in a park, there would probably be less homeless people there too.

    This place is great if you're super laidback and just want a place to sleep and shower. It's definitely not worth more than the $35/night (or there abouts) you pay. Beds were fine, I liked that they provided bedding. The common areas were generally clean...More

    Staff there was fun, friendly, VERY respectful and helpful. Yes, it's very basic, but hello! Its only 32 bucks a night! If you need an "atmosphere", flowers, marble counter tops and a big bedroom - 5 star hotel is around the corner. I needed a...More

    Downtown
    At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
    for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
    and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
    a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
    Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
    flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
