  • I would only re ommend it to young and/or adventerous travellers who don't mind the little things that don't work. I stayed in the part of the building you canreach from the back staircase and that was my main problem: This staircase has a big hole below the handrail, so I can not recommend it to families with children, people who come home drunk, anyone who is clumsy... So who's left? Stuntmen?

  • Best hostel if youre under 30! We got the double room and it was perfect: kitchen has tons of pots, our room backed right onto the terrace (which is where most people chill). Staff is incredible (and are so easy going), its a great place to meet other people if youre in a smaller groups, everyone was so friendly and we tagged along with people every night. Its not perfect, but its so cheap and you cant beat the atmosphere. 10/10 would recommend, def going back! Good location and great set up! xx

  • This was my first time ever staying in a hostel, and I was just astounded by how wonderful every aspect of this hostel. The facilities were great, I felt quite at home and comfortable, the staff were very helpful and friendly, especially Cory. I recommend staying in the 20 bed dorm, everyone was friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed being in Montreal, but honestly, the best part of my trip was staying at the Alexandrie.

  • Easy to find, especially great for those traveling by Greyhound. Definitely best for younger folks with a cool vibe. Still, as an older woman, the staff was kind and welcoming. If you have valuables, bring a lock!

  • Really friendly staff, clean, excellent communal facilities, good value. Well situated for the quartier latin, a little further out for downton/old Montreal, but still just about within walking distance.

  • It was my first time to try settling in a hostel. The experience I had with Alexandrie-Montréal was just right and cool. I liked the dormitory type ambiance and meeting new people and brings back memories of my college days.
