I love this place. When I go to Montreal, it's almost always by train. So this is a very good spot to go to since it's only 10-12 minutes from the Central Station by foot. Not the most comfortable bed, but at 15$/nights (if you are a HI member) it's more than a bargain, especially since breakfast is included! Staff... More

I stayed here Labor Day weekend of 2012. The hostel has a very bright, fun atmosphere. They have daily activities posted for guests to participate in. The bar/restaurant area is chill and you'll find interesting people to chat with at every hour of the day. The kitchen/food prep area is immense! The refrigerator alone won me over. They have a...

I stayed 2 nights & both nights were good, clean room, free breakfast & would recommend to stay. Close to the subway so easy to get around but shops & bars are within walking distance. Do the walking tour to the royal crescent, its free & worth it.

The hostel is clean with very large rooms. There were 6 beds in the room I was in, but they come with a locker for you to keep valuables in. The hostel is in a good location, right next to the Ice Hockey stadium and only about a 30 minute walk (or tube) to downtime Montreal. The hostel provided nights... More

HI-Montreal was very clean and in a pretty good location - close enough to the downtown area. Not exactly walking distance to clubs (especially if you're in heels!!), so I'd recommend taking a taxi. The hostel was great overall, except for the fact that my friend and I were charged a "booking fee" for having used Hostelworld (said the receptionist).... More

Great hostel, everything was clean and nice. Reception were bilingual which is good. Location pretty good you can walk to quite a lot of things. Breakfast was really good too. The only down side is we booked a female room but were put in a male/female dormitory. I would still return though, the price cant be beat.

Stayed here whilst travelling with a friend. Have to say the Hostel is really nice. The staff are incredibly friendly and happily direct you anywhere. Stayed in a 10 mixed dorm room - people were brilliant, rooms were nicely laid out! The only problem with our room was the shower, no power and the water dripped out, so ended up... More

Thanks for the good words... If I may correct on thing though, we do not offer tours of Quebec City... Even if Quebec City is only a 3 hours bus ride from Montréal, we much prefer to focus on Montréal during our daily activities!! ;)) Bon Voyage, Nic, hostel manager More

Hostel is located just a 10 minute walk from the train station and very close to the main shopping area. Cheapest hostel I have stayed at in Canada. But still provided an excellent nights sleep and free breakfast consisting of bagels, fruit & juice. Hostel also provides daily activities and the receptiin staff were very helpful.
