  • This was my first time ever staying in a Hostel and the experience was awsome. I stayed when there was a 5 alarm fire in the building right beside it but still managed to feel relaxed. Most likely because of the very welcoming staff and clients. Great autmosphere! Perfect location to many tourist locations both when walking and/or using the metro.

  • The rooms were small considering how many beds there were. Normally I like small, but with other backpackers also rifling through their things, it gets quite stuffy. The cafe is very nice with a pool table, bar and adequate seating for dozens of folks. There are several vending machines too. Between the vending machine's hums and the basement cafe's lack of windows, it's quite loud and enclosed down there. I'm more for one for wide spaces and tranquility.

  • I really enjoyed my time in Montreal and the Hostel was as good as the travel guide said. The staff was friendly and helpful and there was always someone available to answer my questions. There was always something going on, one day it was a walk around the city, another time it was a bar tour. So, even if you were travelling alone, there were lots of opportunities to meet people. Although the breakfast was not breath taking, it was nice and already included in the price. I can only recommend it

  • One of the best hostels I stayed! The 4 female dorm (1st floor) was very comfortable and cleaned every day. Staff was also helpful.

  • Wifi didn't work very well (frequent disconnections) and the breakfast choices were fairly sparse. The hostel is in a great, very safe area with easy access to the Metro and other types of transportation.

  • Close to the metro and to the airport bus so it's a good location in that sense, but you're not really in the heart of anywhere you'd want to hang out. Had uneven experiences with the staff: one girl was quite uninterested in answering any questions (and frankly looked stoned), one guy was courteous and helpful. Overall okay stay, but would probably go somewhere else next time.
