Top tips for finding Toronto hostel deals

  • Toronto is a sprawling city, and there are small concentrations of hostels in many of its neighborhoods. While many hostels are situated in downtown Toronto, there are also small collections of them in Chinatown, near Regent’s Park, and in the areas surrounding the University of Toronto. Each one of these neighborhoods offers its own unique attractions. Booking a hostel in Toronto’s downtown area can offer the most convenience, but booking a hostel in Regent’s Park or Chinatown might give you a more authentic taste of daily life in the city.
  • There are several advantages that come with booking a hostel in Toronto instead of more expensive hotels and vacation rentals in the city. Besides offering accommodations at a fraction of the cost, hostels offer amenities like shared kitchens where you can prepare your own meals, recreation areas, and common areas where you can meet fellow travelers.
  • If you’re heading to Toronto with a group, booking a room that can accommodate a group at one of the city’s hostels can make your stay go more smoothly. The Two Peas Pod Hostel, located in the area near the University of Toronto, offers triple rooms that can accommodate groups of up to three. The Two Peas Pod Hostel also has plenty of common areas, where you and your party can kick back after a hard day of sightseeing.
  • Going to Toronto on your own? One of the best hostels in Toronto for solo travelers is the HI Toronto Hostel, which is located in the downtown area close to attractions like the CN Tower and the Royal Ontario Museum. In addition to a tour desk that can help you plan your Toronto vacation to best meet your interests, this hostel features an on-site bar, where you can mingle with other travelers and listen to the live music acts that perform there several nights a week.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Toronto, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Toronto in December and April.
