I stayed at The Clarence Park Hostel for 2 weeks after arriving in Toronto and really miss it there now that I've moved out. The rooms are clean and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is phenomenal just off King/Spadina and the view of the CN Tower and Clarence Square opposite is lovely; there are plenty of...

Best located hostel in Toronto. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Rooms and kitchen are very clean. Lots of space to cook and leave your food if you want to do it yourself rather than eating out.

I cannot explain how amazing this hostel was. This was the first hostel I've ever stayed at and it makes me not ever want to spend the money on a hotel again. I stayed in a mixed 6-bunk dorm room, and the bed were completely clean. They give you a bag of sheets right as you check in, so everything...

Here is what I liked: + great location + very nice staff at the reception and what I didn't like: - I stayed the first few nights in the main house which is basically a student dorm (since the place has a long-term cooperation with a language school) - The last few nights I stayed in a house with little...

This was a great hostel – clean, well-situated, exceptionally helpful staff. You can’t really ask for better on a budget. I had a private room, which was very reasonably priced and surprisingly large. I’ve stayed in shoeboxes in New York for 3 times the price. There’s also a great looking café next door, which although I never used, I saw...

As soon as you walk into Clarence Park, there is a welcoming feel to the old style house right in the centre of downtown. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to explore the city by foot. It is only 10 minutes from the CN Tower and Aquarium, as well as a short walk to Queen St. It is...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
