  • This place is a fantastic bargain. Not the cleanest place, but well worth the money. The price on a private room is unreal!!! The heat worked beautifull, which was much appreciated. Comfortable, too!

  • Incredible amenities for what I paid, though it was a first time staying in a hostel so mine is not the most-informed opinion. This was a great place to stay - plenty of space, a nicely furnished living room, very cozily heated, and a comfy bed. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone looking for an affordable and friendly place to stay in Montreal.

  • When traveling and desiring to feel like you are home, then this is 'Alexandrie-Montreal'! Great staff, location, bus connections, metro to all sites, and then some. Close to grocery, well managed 'kitchen', bike rentals, the 'works'!! Highly recommend mixed or female dorms!! Welcomes all from all around the world, etc. Will return! You go and see for yourselves!!!

  • The only thing that I was concern is that this Hostel have not shower private rooms, mans took showers in front of everbody, that was not good, and for the price weekdays $25.00 and for weekend $28.00 was a little expensive without shower room.

  • Truly amazed at the 'organization' of the hostel, and the ability to accommodate all from over the world, and age groups. All the staff are very informed and able to direct guests to most places, events, etc. So, you have a great idea of where you are going, before you start. And, I am grateful for the ability to rent a bike right at the place with relevant security. Great pancake breakfast and/or toasts with spreads. Great 'parc', 'busline', 'roof-top'!!

  • Cory - one of the staff members - was very welcoming and if he was feeling up to it he would make pancakes for breakfast. The hostel has scheduled events and/or tours e.g. the TamTam festival or Sangria night... Sangria night was cancelled because the hostel was busy... you'd think that would be even more reason to have it! Also, it says that it is a 20 bunk bedroom. This is a little misleading. There are multiple rooms with bunks, just no doors. So you aren't sharing 1 room with 20 others!
