Accommodations


Start the day by having a traditional Canadian breakfast with our all you can eat PANCAKE BREAKFAST served every morning with maple syrup.

LONELY PLANET said we were, 'TORONTO'S BEST RUN HOSTEL WITH A COMMUNAL FEEL THAT MAKES IT HARD TO FEEL HOMESICK'

On a scale of 1 to 10, we care 10. From the free pancake breakfast, to the weekly barbeques, to the authentic movie theatre, to the extra big wooden bunk beds (made to our specifications), we have strived to make our hostel feel like home.

A little bit about the hostel:

Canadiana Backpackers Inn is the most centrally located hostel in town (please see photographs). Right in the heart of the Entertainment District we are only three blocks from the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre (Skydome), the Metro Convention Centre, and one block from Toronto's trendiest street, Queen Street West. We are the closest hostel to the centre of town, saving you costly street car fares.

Both the guide books and our guests say, 'Canadiana feels like home'. But why?

Housed in 1886 Victorian townhouses the hostel has been carefully restored to it's original splendour, with high ceilings, hardwood floors, and original fixures.

As fellow travelers we know how important it is to make people feel at home. Our lounge with it's soft lighting and comfortable seating is a place where it's easy to relax over a beer and chat with other guests. If you prefer coffee or tea, help yourself, it's free.

We offer accommodation to suit everyone, from private rooms (single and double), to quad rooms (4 people to a room), to female only rooms. All the rooms are spacious with thick, comfortable mattresses and extra big wooden bunk beds.

Our hostel has it's very own 18 seat surround sound cinema. The screen is 10ft by 8ft and the seats are from a Lockheed L1011 airplane. So relax and enjoy one of our two shows a day.

Feeling lonely? Don't, as every night we organize an event from pub crawls, to comedy nights, to barbeques served on our outdoor patio overlooking the CN Tower.

If you read the guidebooks, you will see that for style, service, and atmosphere no other place in town compares. Here is what the guidebooks have to say:

'The super-friendly Canadiana Backpackers Inn is in quiet, charming Victorian houses with a great location in the Entertainment District'.
Lonely Planet, 2001.

'An assortment of young adventurous professionals populate the Canadiana, whose wooden beds and Victorian facade create a calm refined atmosphere. Its central location is near several hot nightclubs.' Lets Go, 2002.

'The Canadiana Backpackers Inn is booked and not surprisingly. It's clean and new and where people gather is even tastefully appointed. There's a patio on which guests are treated to free barbeques.....staff exceedingly friendly.'
Now Magazine, 2000.
