"I love this big hostel because I can meet many international students and tourists to exchange experience and adventures either in the common kitchen or TV room. Everybody are nice and interesting. I stay here for only five nights but I made many friends so we can keep in touch each other online in the near future. What are you waiting? if you come to Toronto, please try it. This hostel is located on the Kensington market which I can buy fresh fruits and vegetables within minutes walking distance; I can visit University of Toronto Library within walking distance; I can connect with three main transportation (streetcar, bus, subway) just on the corner. I paid $22 a day but I can get free internet access and free local call. I don't need worry about something, everything is included. Anyway, I will be back soon, Thank you College Hostel."

"The College Hostel is one of the best hostel's I have ever been in. the staff are fantastic ... It's so friendly, everyone just mingles, and there is no stopping it,. You just get sucked into conversations with so many people. you can't help becoming friendly. location is sweet, just away from the madness of Downtown, and sweet for walks in many different style areas. There are also some very good bars around. If it's a game of pool you want, right around the corner "Thymeless" will cater for you, and you must try the Buzz Beer Companies brew-CLASSIC."

"... it was nice to have a tiny balcony, and the area was great. I couldn't have chosen a better location, right in Kensington Market. There are also tons of vegan places around, so if you're vegan, this is the place to be!"

I can get Internet access without payment and cook with other students in the common kitchen. It's like I'm back at the University again.
