I visited La Maison Du Patriote as part of a tour of east Canadian cities. It was by far the worst accommodation I've ever had. Dirty, cockroach-ridden, and cramped. But worse than all this was the noise; the hostel is opposite at club and there is no way to sleep before it shuts. When I tried to complain to the... More

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. I stayed with my niece in a private room facing the street and it was comfortable. The owners were nice and trusted us guests to take care of the hostel at night because they had to go home!! The lounge area was really cool with all the instruments. We were... More

I normally don't write reviews due my laziness, but I'm so shocked to see the negative reviews, that I felt the need to express the positive experience I had staying here and what a wonderful charming place this is! The Location - Right in the middle of Old Montreal, one of my favorite neighborhoods. The building itself has the historic... More

I stayed in La Maison du Patriote for two nights and boy was I glad to be heading out. More than 22 beds were cramped into what was already a very small hostel. Beds were practically touching one another with nothing more than a hanging sheet that separates them. While I didn't expect luxury and great comfort in a hostel,... More

Having stayed at some very nice backpackers' hostels in South America, where I had just arrived from, I was expecting more of North American hostels. La Maison du Patriote was a huge, huge, huge let-down. Although its location is incomparable (located right on one of the busiest and prettiest streets in Montreal), the hostel itself was a tremendous disappointment. The... More

We stayed 2 nights and met some interesting people, the hostel is friendly and has good cooking facilities. Situated in a great spot in the old quarter we were able to walk and travel on the underground all around the island Wifi good we got a large deluxe room although the dorm arrangement seemed well thought out. Would recommend

This place is awesome ! So many other fellow travellers and a great dorm style room up top. It says 22 bed dorm but it has like all the beds with curtains and they made it into little rooms itself. Very cozy and helpful with a ton of information. I think it may be the cheapest hostel in montreal and... More

We stayed here for a week in August. We came to Montreal for the FINA World Masters Championships so we needed to stay longer and booked a private room. I really liked that the hostel is like a home! It's a small hostel and reception is there only for part of the day (from 9am to 6pm I guess) so... More

Arriving in the summer evening into a cosy one bedroom that overlooks the streets of Old Montreal, I knew immediately that this place was going to be good. Add to that a fun atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff, superb resources (to make it more fun they were drawn onto the walls with chalk), and perfect location. The time of year... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
