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

Bonjour! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. If I am happy to read that you had a good time while staying with us, I am sorry about the confusion regarding the price. Needless to say there are absolutely no booking fees for using Hostelworld, or any other booking engines. As a member based organization, I suppose... 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

Very nice stay: the hostel is located in city center, very close to the subway station, the shuttle stop for/from the airport and close to some pubs in the area of the hostel. Nice the activities organized by the staff like the tour in Quebec city, possibility to rent bike for all day etc. Cleanness, breakfast and facilities are more... 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

We had breakfest included. It was ok. The best were the fruits which were served. The coffe was good. Furthermore... 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.

I stayed here with my friend for just one night. Seemed nice and clean and the check in had a ton of information you can take with you. There are shuttles once a week to ottawa and back for 10 dollars! Nice and cheap. We found somewhere cheaper in old Montreal so we moved locations but was a nice stay... More

Bonjour Kayla, Great to know you had a good time while staying with us! True that we are well located... we sometimes like to think that we're at the center of the world... but since we are humble people, we prefer to say that we are at the center of Montreal! :) Bon Voyage, Nicolas, hostel manager More

The hostel is located near downtown and subway station, amazing location right in the centre of Montreal. Great staff, great rooms. Bed was comfortable and I met friendly roommates. I'll be staying here for future trips to Montreal.
