Guest Reviews

Look, I have stayed there a few times. Simply because of the location and the price. But I can assure you, I am disgusted by the lack of cleanliness, the absence of hot water, the creepy owner,... Remember this: you will never receive a refund from this guy; he will snoop while you are online; he has never physically washed any comforter or replaced any pillow or vacuumed any carpet in the entire hostel. There seems to be no quality and control when it comes to the backpackers 'establishment'. I suggest that you avoid them.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This hostel is in a really great location and is the cheapest I found in Toronto. However, it's really dirty (trash, dirt, alcohol bottles, food) and noisy. Many of the people there have been staying for a long time and have no intentions of seeing sights or sleeping. They are working and just getting drunk every single night while playing idiotic drinking games so loud that you won't sleep a wink. They drink ALL night long- I woke up at 6 am one morning and came out of my room to a drunken guy who couldn't even speak properly let alone stand up.

If you want to party all night long into the morning like a 17-year-old then this place is for you. If you want to actually sleep and do your own thing and see sights and stay in a clean place you better book your stay somewhere else.
