Sander I really wanted to like this place; on paper it sounds great, with all the important touches and more. However, reality during our visit showed this place to be understaffed and undermaintained. Airconditioning broke on the 2nd day we stayed here, and still was broken when we checked out on the 5th day. The stove was broken during our entire stay (two crappy portable electric heaters replaced it), the doorbell was broken during our entire stay, one of the dishwashers was 'broken' (missed a tray) during our entire stay, WiFi was badly configured and only usable during non-peak hours, etc. The single person staffing front-desk was friendly when present, but most of the time wasn't present, apparently running errands throughout the hostel (yet never managing to get around to freeing up the overflowing dishwashers, which apparently also was part of their tasks). Rooms are extremely sparse; a bed and nothing more (a hook on the wall or a bedside table wouldn't be too much to ask, would it?); soundproofing from the outside is excellent, but soundproofing from the inside of the hostel is non-existent, which sucks as all rooms have these heavy hotel-style doors which lock with very loud clicks, easily keeping you up deep into the night. The few positives to this place would be its rooftop area with nice views over the Toronto skyline, its location (just south of the great restaurants and shops on Bloor and Harbord Street) and the awesome hours for (the quite decent) breakfast: 7:00 (or similarly early) up to 13:00!

tessjane19 The Staff were nice and the location was good and the tours that are on offer are what made me want to stay at the hostel keep it up and add some more tour options
sushi_hong not as good as hi-washington. Staff were less friendly and the wireless was simply horrible. the rooms were clean but small and there was no free breakfast like hi-washington. the place was easy to find with many attractions nearby
vanecka This is an amazing Hostel!! I have traveled alot and I have to say that this hostel ranks among the top five places I have stayed! The place is clean and defiantly caters to the people staying there! The staff was also very friendly! You are able to watch tv, surf the net, use a full kitchen and patio, which most hostels do not offer. It is also very reasonably prices considering it also included a waffle breakfast!! Locationally speaking- it is toronto, so anywhere you want to go you can via subway!! They are right next to a stop, so it isnt to difficult! Overall I would say you are going to have a GREAT experience!!
pinkdms This was more of a low-budget hotel than a hostel in my opinion and experience, therefore we had a very pleasant surprise when we checked in as far as the accommodation was concerned. It's not a place to meet people / fellow travellers though if that's what you are looking for. Adam was extremely friendly and efficient. I would definitely go back.
