I had a great all-around experience at this hotel. It is located at the intersection of St. Laurent and St. Catherine which is a quick walk to the Latin Quarter, as well as having an adjacent Metro station just outside its doors. Walking up from the street doesn't give you the greatest first impression as it looks more akin to a hostel type lodging, but once inside I was very pleased. The staff was very friendly and helpful, offering me unique insight into what the city had to offer, as well as offering to hold my luggage for the afternoon after checkout as I had time to kill before my next check-in at a different hotel. I stayed in the most basic room as I was travelling solo (one double bed). The room on the whole was on the smaller side (tiny shower), but I didn't mind as it was very clean, modern looking with exposed brick, good air conditioning, etc. All-in-all I had a great experience at l'abri du voyageur and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy hotel in a great city.
