Decent, but not the best
I had a really nice stay at Canadiana. The staff were really helpful finding me a room during the busiest time in Toronto as soon as one became available and then switched my reservation around so I wouldn't have to move rooms at all during my stay. Breakfast is a joke (one stale bagel with 2 spreads available until 11 if there are any left) but the room I stayed in was massive. The lockers were huge, the beds really comfy, the bathrooms reasonably clean and there were mirrors galore. Location wise, you're in an excellent position to walk up to yonge/dundas (20mins), down to the CN tower, or head up to queen street/china town (5-10mims). It was a bit annoying having to leave a $15 deposit for keys and linen, but other than that I have no complaints.

Acceptable but not preferred
Decent enough but many of the guests were young loud types who were making noise until 1am. The breakfast is pretty lame, so I found a cafe in PATH instead and got more than enough to eat for about $5. I'd skip this place in favor of the place around the corner.

Best Hostel
Stayed for just over a week while visiting Toronto. The staff is super friendly, the common areas are huge, and they have something going on pretty much every night. It's a great place to stay and definitely the best hostel I've been to.

Amazing, awesome, wonderful front desk service!!!
I just want to say that the front desk service is so nice! I arrived during the snow storm recently to find out that the hostel did not have my reservation. Apparently, I had accidentally booked the hostel for the next day and the day after, not that night. So, the front desk employee was nice enough to check if there are any free beds and she found one and set me up! That was so nice of her. She moved my reservation to be for that night and for the next night without any extra charge. I even paid the same price that I would have paid for those other days. So because she went to extra mile, I go to settle down my things and not walk in a snow storm towards the rat-infested Backpackers hostel. So this hostel gets A+ for service. Plus, the hostel was super clean, and what helps is that everybody gets free clean sheets. There's a nice theatre in the basement, there's a fun common area, it is not too noisy in the rooms on the third floor where I was staying, and all in all it was a nice hostel. Close to the club district if that's what you want to do! Awesome location, on a quiet side street, very nice. Highly recommended.

Control deficiency at its finest
I wish I could love this place, but I had an unpleasant experience. Last month, I booked for a spot in a female dorm, 5 days in advance over the phone and even got a confirmation email. When I arrived, they gave me a mixed dorm, even though I had booked for a female dorm. But I think it might have been a male dorm because everyone there was male, and the receptionist kept switching between "male" and "mixed" when he described the room to me. I asked the receptionist if there was any other room available, but he said no and to take that one last available spot, otherwise I'll have to sleep "outside", referring to the street. He appeared to be annoyed with me and went off to cleaning, leaving me hanging there. As it was late into the night, I had no choice but to accept to sleep in the "mixed" dorm. In the morning, I complained to another receptionist and got a 50% refund. It seems like a control deficiency to me and I'd recommend against anyone from staying here. Also, to comment on the cleanness -- they give you a clean bed sheet and a pillow cover. But I saw a blood stain on the bed itself.
