This hostel was one of the cheapest I stayed in for $20 per night. I highly recommend Montreal for a cheap getaway. The hostel is right in the heart of the city near to everything and the subway station.

It's an alright place to stay, cheap and great location! Provides the basic necessities. Water always hot, always food in the morning, staff great, helpful and accommodating. Bar area and kitchen always clean. Rooms are basic and nothing fancy.If you want a place with a soft comfy bed and an exceptionally clean bathroom you need to stay elsewhere. Stayed in... More

I stayed at this hostel a few times and it seems to be getting worse. They have a lot of homeless folks staying there some of whom are very strange. In one dorm room I stayed in I heard a woman in there screaming at 3 in the morning and another woman had an alarm clock radio which went off... More

Well… it clearly looks like that we were not up to your expectations. I truly apologize for it. As a non for profit organization, we work with the travelers, for the travelers, hoping to make everyone experience the very best of Montréal has to offer. We are normally pretty good at it, but we sometimes also fail for various reasons.... More

Great hostel, in a central area of Montreal. Staff are super friendly and will give you loads of advice and information about the city. The bar area was great and activities out on by the hostel were great fun! Would definitely stay again :)

The staff were very helpful, friendly and kind. The building is huge, quiet and clean. The kitchen is well appointed and the bistro in the basement serves tasty food and cheap beer. Breakfast is stellar. Altogether a perfect place for a family to stay in Montreal.

This was my very first time in a hostel! So I didn't quite know what to expect. My friend and I shared a room with 5 males who were super friendly. The rooms were clean and spacious. We got our own sheets and pillow. Bring sandals for the shower! Each room has a key card and it also gets you... More

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
