We always write about being a “downtown” hostel. In fact we are the most downtown hostel in Toronto!
We are right in the middle of the “Entertainment District” three blocks from the landmark CN Tower. We are one block from the new Film Fesival Towers currently under construction. (When completed, the new building will house and attract visiting film stars.)
The hostel is located two blocks from major theatre venues and a multi-screen Cineplex Movie Theatre is right across the street!
In short, there is a lot happening at and around the hostel each and every day!
Movies, television shows, rock videos are filmed on our street and at times, even in the hostel itself. This is in addition to the lives, activities and stories of our resident backpackers.
The pics below were taken on a typical day – both the day and photos, randomly chosen.
