Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Two Peas Podshare is a centrally located hostel in the downtown area of Toronto. This fun, social hostel is good for spending a few nights in the city.

The Location

The hostel is located in the Chinatown area of Toronto, within the downtown core. It is close to public transportation and easily accessible from the airport. Street parking may be difficult due to how busy the area is, but there are are several indoor parking lots available nearby.

The hotel is located nearby several markets, many interesting shops, as well as restaurants, bars, and coffee shops.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms have pod-type beds, and each one closes with a curtain. The pods are well-built; however, when we visited, the outlet by the bed and the TV in the pod weren't functioning, but these problems might've been fixed since. The lockers are very spacious and located underneath the rows of pods. The beds are comfortable and the bedding is clean.

The one major issue with the rooms is that instead of a door they have a curtain, thereby not blocking any of the noise from the common area. Some of the rooms are close to the reception area, and some are close to a heavy door that makes a loud noise when closed. This can be very problematic if there are people going through during normal sleeping hours.

The bathrooms are clean and modern and there are many showers and toilets to easily accommodate everyone. The shower cabins are well maintained and there is enough room to store or hang your clothes to avoid getting them wet. There are hair dryers available in the washrooms; large mirrors on the side ensure that there is enough room for everyone to get ready.

The one inconvenience of the bathrooms is that they are located on a different floor than the sleeping rooms, which can be inconvenient if they need to be used during the night. In addition, a key fob is needed to come back into the room area, so you need to make sure to have it on you at all times, even when half-asleep in the middle of the night.

Common Spaces

There are common spaces on the top floor, both indoors and outdoors. During the summer, there is a nice terrace area on the roof, where BBQs are often organised and guests like to socialize. It is a social hostel where it's easy to meet fellow travelers, and the staff make a particular effort to create a nice atmosphere. There is also a kitchen area where a good, free breakfast is available every morning.

Summary

Two Peas Podshare is a good hostel to spend a few nights in if traveling for pleasure. It's centrally located and social and it has modern amenities. The one downside is that the layout can prevent guests from sleeping through the night, which might be problematic for anyone needing a good night's rest.
