A great common area is what makes or breaks a backpackers hostel and Global Village Backpackers has space for you to read, relax with your laptop, have a game of pool or chat with friends. Our large outdoor patio is perfect on sunny day when you can watch the locals shop or take in some sun. Oh yes and free wireless is available everywhere!
Lockers and Storage
We have lockers and longer term storage space for your gear so you can store your bags safely and walk around the city.
Food and Drink
Our in house bar is an awesome place to share a drink and your backpacking stories with your fellow travelers and local Torontonians. Check out The Departure Lounge for weekly specials and events.
Toronto is an amazing city, but if you really want to see Canada check out our travel desk where you can find tours with the Moose Travel Company to Niagara Falls, Montreal, Quebec City, New York City, Boston, Washington, Algonquin Park and even all the way to Halifax! We also highly recommend trying out the hop-on hop-off Bus and Boat tour (www.citysightseeingtoronto.com)—it is a great way to explore the city and waterfront. Discounted tickets available at the front desk.
