First hostel stay

Location cleanliness convenience
Norman L. Solo travelers Canada, July 2, 2014
very poor front desk management.

1. clean washroom 2. internet wi-fi 3. central location
1. the front desk keeper did not tell me the wifi password after asking him, resulting in almost a day's loss of network access since their office closes in the evening. 2. the front desk keeper's wife is very rude and will make you run up to return the linens when they did not tell you to return in it from the beginning when submitting a cash deposit for the key.

Simple, but Pleasant

quick checkin and out; comfortable bed; great location
It was fine. My only issues was that the doors tended to stick.
Gabriel S. Solo travelers Nigeria, March 21, 2013
Not too impressive.

Central location, cheaper, access to shopping
My stay was not too impressive owing to the factors outlined above. There ought to improvement in the services that the hotel renders to the public.
Wong Y. Business travelers Singapore, October 22, 2012
Great location but poor accommodation standards

Great location, short walk away from Spadina & Dundas.
Shocking facade greets the guest at first sight with its rundown backpacker inn image, and there was no visible sign of the hotel's name. Room was small with few amenities, corriders narrow and communal bathroom was badly maintained. 1 of room's binds was missing, no temperature maintenance settings found. Sound proofing was non existent, with doors closing and people talking & walking resonating through the narrow walkways. Good for people looking at no frills cheap stay with close proximity to Toronto life.
Ong S. Groups Singapore, August 12, 2012

Value, cheap, location

Great location but small rooms

Jill A. Couples New Zealand, May 7, 2012
Not very central

Close to China town.
It was not overly clear when we booked on the internet that it was a backpackers, so not what we expected. Not overly clean but the staff were nice and helpful
Min H. Couples Canada, April 26, 2012
Nice Staff

Good Price in downtown Toronto and nice staffs
It's a good choice for tight budget trip in Toronto because other hotels in Toronto are more expensive. Plus Global Village has very nice staffs.
Imane F. Couples France, June 27, 2012
arrivés tard (23h00), pas de service d'accueil après 23h, il a donc fallu se déplacer dans un autre hôtel pour récupérer les clés et les infos...clés qui ne servent à rien car la porte de la chambre ne se ferme pas donc impossible de laisser nos bagage ou même de dormir l'esprit tranquille. aucune place pour la voiture non plus. La propreté de la chambre laisse fortement à désirer, à savoir aussi que la salle de bain est commune et sale
