A Cultural Exchange/Lasting Friendships

“A Cultural Exchange”. That’s pretty much describes one of the nice things about our hostel. (Among many, I hasten to add!)

We have hosted travelers from all over the world from Bulgaria to Bora Bora. At our Toronto hostel you are likely to meet a future “life-long friend” from another community, culture and country.

It happens with great regularity, right here, in downtown Toronto! For instance” we have randomly selected some comments from a Facebook site started a year or so ago by a former guest from Germany.

It already has almost a thousand members! Check out some of the comments posted just since Christmas 2009!

Canadiana Toronto HostelsBec Maddocks Thanks for the awesome experience! I am planning a trip back asap! It was great meeting all the other Aussies; it was a little reminder of home! Can’t wait to come back.
