“Best youth hostel ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

I had a fantastic stay there. It is the best youth hostel I have ever been to. I stayed one week in a 8 bed dorm.

The hostel is Clean and nicely decorated, the kitchen ideally furnished and you get those services that make the difference : Free wifi, private TV and Bathroom in the room, clean towel everyday, free breakfast, beautiful bar with weekly events... Not to mention the staff, absolutely lovely! They really contribute to create a friendly atmosphere there. I'll definitely be back!

I stayed in a 4-person dorm which was super clean. I liked the fact that towels were replaced, and the ensuite bathrooms were cleaned everyday. The staff were friendly and the bar in the basement is pretty nice. Got to meet a few cool people and enjoyed the live band they had on the Friday night I was there.
Great location as well - close to the Berri-UQAM metro and many restaurants, bars, etc. in the Gay Village.

I loved it here. I stayed in a 6 Bed Female ensuite. It was clean and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Each bed had it's own outlet and light, and there was a locker for everyone in the room, which I loved. The bed was comfortable, and they clean the room and change out your towels every day, which is so rare in hostels, but extremely appreciated! The bar downstairs was a great place to just relax with a drink and listen to live music at the end of the day. The location was great, it's close to Old Town, and being right in the latin quarter, there are a ton of bars and restaurants close by - St. Denis and St. Catherine were always hopping. I would absolutely stay again. Just do it, you won't regret it!

On par with boutique hostels in South America and Europe. Thoughtful layout, Crisp sheets, free towels (of the fluffy white variety to boot) changed every morning. Nice that they have power outlets next to each bunk. They bake the breakfast croissants fresh overnight. Stayed in both an 8-bed mixed dorm and a 6-bed female dorm. Great layout in the female dorms. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Bar downstairs was a good place to chill. Management put a lot of thought in how to add value to the accommodations experience they offer to travelers. The type of comfortable hostel you hope to encounter in every city you're travelling to.

Room Tip: Front desk controls the A/C remotes. So if the A/C in your room is acting up, don't hesitate to...

Staying at this hostel was one of the best decisions I made on my week-long trip to Montreal. There were fun activities planned every night, and the staff made an effort to build a personal relationship with everyone. The basement/ bar is sound proofed so even when they had musicians or dance lessons down there, you couldn't hear it upstairs. The breakfast was okay, with great fresh croissants and hard boiled eggs but not much in the way of fruit or vegetables. Just one thing to note: I stayed in one of the all-girls dorms and it did not have a mini-fridge. The lockers are also not big enough for your backpack, as in other hostels that sometimes have huge lockers. They were slightly larger than pool lockers. But these are minor scruples, and my 7-night stay was overall GREAT!
