This hostel surprised us, for starters it was much bigger than it looked from the road. Our private room was small and a weird shape but there was space enough for us and our luggage. It was pretty clean, the odd hair in the shower...More

The location was really good and not too far to walk from the train station. The breakfasts were average. We stayed in a private room for 3 nights. The decor was better than expected with quirky furniture but the room wasn’t particularly clean. The shower...More

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

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
