The town of Niagara Falls on the Canadian side gives spectacular views of one of the world's most famous waterfalls. Known for having the greatest flow rate of water in the world, the power and beauty of the falls themselves are spectacular. From this side of the border, you get the best view of the American Falls, and the Horseshoe Falls, which collectively are known as the Niagara Falls. If you want to get right into the action, you can take the Maid of the Mist boat down into the bottom of the horseshoe and get sprayed with the mist coming off the falls. This attraction, like many of the others at Niagara Falls, only runs during the summer.
While there are fewer attractions running during the winter, don't be deterred from going at this time of year. The frozen-over river and the large chunks of ice going over the falls are absolutely stunning and give a completely different experience than going in the summer. At either time of year though you should take a raincoat to avoid getting wet from the mist.
Hostels in Niagara Falls are scattered, but many of them are located close to the Niagara Falls Bus Terminal which is serviced by numerous buses coming from mostly Toronto on a daily basis. Other hostels in Niagara Falls are located closer to the action of the falls and to the numerous tourist attractions and shops located along the main streets. Among the shops there are also many casinos that you can go visit. Many of them do quite an impressive buffet for an even more impressive price.

Niagara is more than a one day visit! Most travelers are coming to Canada to see nature. The Niagara river is one of the world's greatest rivers, not just for the falls. The gorge and parkway are amazing. There are many great, short hikes along the river with spectacular scenery. They have the world's largest whirlpool, the best jetboat ride in the world, Canada's largest wine producing region with vineyard tours and free wine tasting, bike tours, great hostels, awesome night time activities, festivals year round, and Canada's best New Years eve celebration. Yes, it is touristy but so is every other world "must see" destination. However it is very easy to get past the touristy attractions and have a great time during the day exploring nature and chilling in the parks, along the river, and then at night going out to an awesome restaurant, pub, nightclub, or even try your luck in the casino. Give yourself at least three days to see the area, do a bit more research, and properly enjoy one of the wonders of the world.
If you go to Niagara Falls and like beaches, be sure to go to Sherkston Shores.
Niagara Falls is very touristy, and there's not much to see asides from the main tourist strip. If you want to see the Falls, just one night, or even a day trip from Toronto is generally enough to get your fix of this place. There's the huge waterfall (you can take the Maid of the Mist boat right up close), and Clifton Hill which features numerous haunted houses, a Ripley's Believe it Or Not Mueseum, and a big arcade, amoung other things. The weather is generally very nice in the summer.
