From the CN Tower to the thought-provoking modern art museums, the wild banks of Lake Ontario to its multicultural maze of neighbourhoods, Canada's largest city is a real treat for urban adventurers. Those on a budget will be glad to find a whole host of low-cost hostels in Toronto, which are able to offer some of the lowest rates in town by stripping accommodation down to the basics. That said, choosing a bunk in a dorm or a low-key double in one of these sorts of stays can often prove downright fun. There are common rooms and shared kitchens – places where backpackers tell tales before pub crawls down rollicking Queen Street. And there are in-the-know reception staff on hand to help with local tips on the top eateries in the Distillery District, the Downtown and beyond.

Various types of hostels in Toronto

Get ready to be greeted by multi-coloured frontispieces and old Victorian facades, high-rise apartment blocks and narrow townhouses that top out on panoramic roof terraces. The upshot is that there are all sorts of hostels in Toronto to get stuck into. Whether you're after somewhere cheap and cheerful that has mixed dormitories and shared bathrooms, or prefer a little seclusion in your own double, these spots have you covered. Some even have family rooms located close to the historic core of Old Toronto – perfect for sightseers coming with the kids in tow.

For lovers of quirky, out-of-the-ordinary places to stay, hostels in Toronto can usually check plenty of boxes. Some common rooms make use of futon sofas and bean bags. Others are laced with Indian fabrics and have Buddhist paraphernalia adorning the walls. The truth is, these budget-friendly escapes might not be quite what you expected. Of course, you can expect the basics of your trip to be taken care of. Plenty of Toronto hostels come with laundry facilities, self-catering kitchens and even their own tour and ticketing services, to help you explore Lake Ontario and this buzzing metropolis all the better.

What hostels in Toronto are worth knowing?

Starting to the east of the centre, in the bohemian mix of Middle Eastern mezze restaurants and whitewashed tavernas that is Greektown – one of Toronto's most happening gastronomic and nightlife districts – you'll find the The Only Backpacker's Inn, an offbeat place to settle in doubles and dorms that have an infusion of South Asian mysticism to them. Sightseers might prefer the acclaimed Two Peas Pod Hostel. It's right on the edge of Old Toronto, so you can launch trips to the amazing Royal Ontario Museum and its menagerie of ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian treasures with ease. Nearby, the Kensington College Backpackers has affordable beds that rub shoulders with the Victorian mansions, the designer clothes boutiques and vintage antique emporiums of lively Kensington Market – a shopping and dining Mecca.
