This place is great for people on a budget but still want to be downtown. Sure you won't get a deluxe room but for the price you pay what you get is perfect. The service was good and there is room for every style possible.
Shared bathrooms are too smalls, and shared dormitories are narrow, leaving no much space to deal with luggage.
Positive points are friendly staff, location is excellent near markets and subway and breakfast is great! The Cavern pub downstairs is also very cozy :-)
One front desk employee she gave me some inpatient attitude . Others , like (spelling like )Ruta and the 'East'/Asian Indian guy and the (Eastern)Asian guy and the manager Travis are good,good,good,good .
It was incredibly expensive, dirty, old, uncomfortable. Location is good but the experience was awful. Prices in the pub are high, it is nothing like a hostel atmosphere. Rooms are small, very dirty, quite old. Just avoid it.
The room was very clean the whole time. It has a great location where you can wal to pretty much evertything downtown and very close to subway and train station. Breakfast was always yummy and the bar downstairs is great to meet people and have...More

I'm glad you enjoyed our hostel! I'll pass on the comment to our front desk staff as well. They're normally the highlight of the place. Thanks for the review!

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, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
I don't remember how long the beds are, but I did request a bottom bed in advance when I booked the reservation, and they were able to accommodate. Security was very good I thought. A key must be used to get to the main... More
I don't remember how long the beds are, but I did request a bottom bed in advance when I booked the reservation, and they were able to accommodate. Security was very good I thought. A key must be used to get to the main kitchen area where the elevators to the rooms are, then key is used for the elevator (if I remember correctly), and then key for your room.

Apart from the lockers placed by the bunk bed, there is enough space under the bunk beds where you can fit your luggage....under thr bed, or some rooms have space beside the beds...Also, there is luggage storage place in the entrance where the reception desk is! It is a pretty safe luggage storage room. Good trips and good luck!
