The Planet Traveler
If there’s a winner of the greenest accommodations in Toronto, it’s The Planet Traveler. So far, it’s the only spot in Toronto that has eco-awareness as their driving mission. As the only hostel on this list, it’s also the most budget-friendly. Situated in a refurbished century-old building on College Street in the downtown area, it’s a spacious hostel that includes a lounge and rooftop bar. Their green technology is hands-on, allowing guests to feel the heat being reclaimed through copper pipes and to check the building’s electricity production on digital readouts throughout the hostel. Planet Traveler was also Toronto’s first joint geothermal project, and rooftop solar panels heat the building’s water. They also incorporate photovoltaic electricity.
