I am sorry you had an uncomfortable interaction. Ben is not a staff member. He was a guest. I asked him about your review. Apparently you asked him to buy alcohol for you but he decided against it after you were not willing to pay...More
Friendly staff, clean rooms, good breakfast, free wifi and a rooftop view of Toronto. What's there to be negative about!? Just DONT book through hostels.com (saying rooms are available when there isn't!- heard other visitors saying the same!) book direct ;)
Really great hostel with things going on almost every night. The bedrooms are a little small but comfortable. The kitchen is huge and well equipped and there is loads of free stuff which is great for travellers on a budget like we were! My friends...More
This is a great hostel. Seriously.
I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting Toronto; in fact, I told my local friends that they should pass along my recommendation if they ever have friends visiting.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.

When you arrive at the airport ask for the TTC bus stop. Take bus 192(airport rocket) to Kipling Station. Pay $3.25 in coins no change provided and ask for a transfer(the transfer is your proof of payment for the rest of your journey). Its the end of the subway line so you can't get on the wrong train; they both go in the same direction. Take the subway to Spadina station; when you arrive go up one flight of stairs to the streetcar loading zone. Jump on the streetcar and take it to College st.. Turn right on College from the direction the streetcar was travelling. Walk 4 minutes to 357 College St.. Travel time is about one hour.
