College Backpackers Hostel

In Kensington Market you and your friends are just meters away from affordable food and fun. Set yourself down for drinks and sip fancy cocktails while listening to live DJs spin some tunes at a local club. If you are looking for accessories and vintage clothes, there are plenty of places to shop. And for a break from the busy city streets, take a stroll around the University of Toronto campus, which is a sight to see on its own. 

In our Toronto youth hostel you get loads of freebies: Breakfast, WIFI, fresh linen and new lockers. All this combined with a great central downtown Toronto location means you may have to book online well in advance because spots fill up fast.

The fun and friendly staff will help you find the best theme tours and other tourist activities. Our hostel is a Toronto budget hostel base for tourist and backpacker destinations like Niagara Falls. 

Don't forget to ask about the latest tours and take your complimentary city map. With the no curfew or lock-out, you may get the urge to just move right in or at least extend your vacation!
