Why Gosling's Landing

November 2019

Coming to Toronto and looking for the right place to stay? Well, if you’re looking for a comfortable place to call home for a few days, a few weeks, or even just one night, Gosling’s Landing is a great spot! You won’t find many (if any) accommodations in Toronto like us. That’s not to say we’re the best hostel in Toronto or even trying to be. We know that we’re not for every kind of traveller. But we put a lot of love and care into the place and many guests have called us awesome :)

With only up to 20 guests at time, we know your name. Really. It’s even pinned outside your room! We’re not a typical hostel with 24/7 front desk service, but we are around at random times in the day and always reachable. It’s important that you feel welcomed here. If you need a little extra TLC, we and our “superb staff” (as noted on Hostelworld) are there for you. Our workawayers are very friendly and will take great care of you as well. You might even find one in the same bunk!

Another reason to book with us is our prime location. We are right next to Chinatown, Kensington Market, and Queen Street West, each offering an endless supply of restaurants, bars, and local shops. There's tons to do right in the neighbourhood so you won't have to go far to get far. Check out our post on places to eat and drink.

Those who are considering hotels in Toronto might like to check out our private rooms. Yep, we’re not just shared dorms and bunkbeds, but we have some beautiful private rooms for those looking for a bit of privacy or a queen bed for two. Perfect for your next date night in Toronto ;)

We’ve also hosted several people here for work or conferences in Toronto, such as the big tech conference Collision. Our workspace is great for business travellers and digital nomads, not only to hash out a few hours on the laptop but also to meet others working on similar projects. We’re also an ideal choice for larger groups keen to share a few bunkbeds, so companies looking for a place to accommodate a staff retreat in the city, get in touch!

There are other hostels in town like HI Toronto and Planet Traveler, which are great options as well. No matter where you stay in this incredible city, you’ll have an amazing time. Just know that we’re new on the block for you to also consider for a warm and homey stay.

You can find us on various platforms including Toronto Hostelworld and, but for the best rate, book on our website or get in touch directly!
