When traveling, Victor and I love the hostel’s atmosphere. There’s always more opportunities to get to know a lot of people from all over the world. When staying in a hotel, it almost never happens so hostels are great when you’re traveling solo or with your partner. Now we will share our suggestion of where to stay in Toronto: Two Peas Pod Hostel.
It’s a trendy hostel with a rooftop terrace. They offer free breakfast. It straddles the line between a hostel and a hotel which combines the community and social experiences of a hostel with the sleek design and modern amenities of a hotel.
Where to stay in Toronto
Location: it’s very close to Toronto’s China Town & just steps away from Kensington Market. We could just walk to a lot of attractions (around 15-minute walk from University of Toronto & Queens Park). You’ll be staying right in the heart of downtown Toronto. When we needed the metro, the closest station is Queen’s Park. Yonge-Dundas Square is just 2.3 km away.
Sleep quality: as you can see on the picture below each bed has its own curtains and the hostel offers ear plugs. So I definitely had great nights of sleep. Besides, the common areas of the hostel are far from the bedrooms. There’s no disturbing noises at all.
The room: we stayed in the deluxe private room but they have other options such as shared rooms. Each of their pods were custom built and meticulously designed for comfort and functionality. Each pod features: premium memory foam mattresses; smart TV; headphones, bamboo pillows; charging station; personal fan; bed light, individual privacy screen & the door’s electronic keypad protected.
Services: staff were very friendly and helpful. The main floor includes a variety store and cafe. The common areas feature a home theatre, two lounges, modern washroom facilities with hairdryer, and a rooftop patio space with breathtaking scenic views overlooking the city. You can also count on a computer with internet if you need it, free breakfast (they have a waffle maker!), free towel service, free WiFi, and free keyless lockers. There’s no curfew and it’s a non smoking facility. Maximum period of stay is 14 days.

Cleanliness: all facilities were super clean!
Differentials: I was completely in love with the bunk beds because of the curtains. It really counts to me as you may know by now I am a bad sleeper. What about individuals TVs with Netflix? It’s a huge plus when choosing a hostel, right? Regarding the bathroom, you can count on luxury showers! It’s something not easy to find when staying in a hostel…
Cost-benefit: traveling to Toronto is not a cheap trip. Especially for Brazilians. When you find an amazing hostel, well located for an affordable price reflects a considerable value for money. Despite of being kinda used to staying in hostel, I never expected to have so much privacy and peace.
