I spent on hostelling international at Montréal just one night but it was enough to realize how practical and funny it is with its handy bar and real close to the métro. I'll return there for sure on my next trips to Montréal.

Considering it's great location, friendly staff and clean rooms, you can't beat this place. Ive stayed here before to see the Canadiens play and I'll keep staying here. Renee, Arelis and Max have been great!!

I had a great time here, it was my first hostel and I am glad i came to this one. My wife and I met alot of great people, one lived there for 3 months and was very articulate and fun. The pub in the basement was a complete blast, cause it was -8C outside. I recommend this place to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of an organised tour over Christmas 2013. We arrived here on Christmas Eve - the hostel's just off a large street, so you're away from passing traffic, which means it's nice and quiet. It does make it more difficult parking though due to the snow! The -15°C was proving difficult for some in... More

A group of six of us shared a private dorm room with en-suite shower in this great hostel. The location was good, and the hostel bar was awesome (great deals on pitchers....good for your wallet, bad for your head!). The only real downside to this was that there wasn't an elevator to take bags up to the higher levels with,... More

I have stayed in a lot of hostels over the past 4 months. Some of which have been very fancy and modern, and some that we're just plain rubbish. None of them however good or bad, had the same atmosphere as this place. By far the best hostel I've stayed in. Great value for money, great location, and fantastic staff,... More

To be honest I was a bit nervous about staying in a hostel. It's been a few years and I wasn't sure if I was still in the right age category for this, but I figured that a hostel stay would be a bit more social for a solo traveller than the usual hotel experience. On arriving, I was a... More

We ended up in this place without a reservation and being totally jetlagged. The receptionist was very kind, recommended that we get HI membership (which we have used lots of times since) and we spent 3 nights there, in 2 differents rooms which were both ok. The kitchen was very well equipped and the common room was spacious, although crowded,... More

This is the best hostel I've ever been to! Great location, really beautiful and cosy building, super clean (they even change towels every day!), fun social activities every night and free yoga classes.
