My friends and I stayed here for three nights. The reception staff were unhelpful. No lift or help with luggage. The breakfast catered for my friends, however being a gluten free vegan they did not for me. I understand its not the easiest requirements, but fruit would have been quite okay. The rooms were clean but cramped with luggage. The... More

This hostel has an excellent location in downtown Montreal. If you're coming from the airport the airport bus stops almost outside the hostel. The staff is very friendly and help you with all your questions. I stayed in the 10-man dorm and the bed where comfortable. Linen is included in the fee and there is also lockers in the room... More

Bonjour Daniel, Thanks for your feedback. I am happy that you had a good stay with us.. As for the bar, it must be bad luck since it is normally quite busy in the evenings.. the best spot to meet other travellers. By the the way, we just launched our «beer pong» game on thursdays... A lot of fun, especially... More

HI Montreal hostel is located conveniently near Lucien L'Allier metro station on the orange line, very near to some of the major streets which intersect the city, and for those arriving by Megabus - just a short walk from the Place Bonaventure metro where the bus drops off/picks up. Additionally Mackay (street its on) has a lot of cool bars/restaurants... More

Hello and thanks for you review! I am thinking the same as you regarding the breakfast... How great could it be if we could offer eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, yogurts, etc. options as well... We do offer it already, but it is a side menu that you have to pay for. Hopefully we will soon manage the costs to pimp... More

The hostel is clean, friendly, and well organized. Great price and awesome atmosphere. I highly recommend it. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms aren't over-crowded (6 person room). The staff is also very helpful with traveling tips, and pointing out great spots to visit/eat/etc. Also, great little bar in the basement! Fantastic price on drinks and food.

They were doing some renovations while I was there, careful to not trip on exposed work being done. The rooms were decent, shower was really quite old with not a lot of hot water or pressure. only...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Close to metro and within walking distance of Gare Centrale if you're getting an Amtrak train to anywhere. Bed was comfortable and room was of a good size.

Great hostel. Friendliest staff, awesome bar, the beer is so so cheap and the best i have tasted in Canada so far. So close to the Metro station so easy to get around. Rooms are very clean. Only problem was the noise at night time due to an annoying school group but hey that happens. Will defiantly stay there next... More
