If you want to be in the middle of it all in Montreal and not break the bank, this hotel is great for that. Great shopping and nightlife in the area, and if you want to explore the rest of the city then you just hop on the metro which is so close.

The rooms aren't spectacular or anything worth writing home about, but they serve their purpose as a place for me to sleep at night. I did enough research ahead of time to know that this would just be a very basic room.

If you don't need luxury, then stay here and save your money so that you can spend it enjoying the city!

This place is a lot more like a normal, very small apartment rather than a hotel. There were some ink stains on the comforter, chipped spots in the sink, a little bit of mildew in hard to reach spots in the shower. But it was clean in general and was a decent place to sleep. I found the temperature to be quite comfortable although I couldn't control the heat. It was quiet while I was there. Great spot if you are going to the Bell Center which is VERY close. The internet was unprotected and extremely unreliable which was very frustrating. The shampoo is in a soap-like container in the wall of the shower so you might want to bring your own.

I'd previous visited Montreal a few years ago and stayed at the HI hostel during a few blocks from this YWCA hostel. I didn't enjoy that particular experience for various reasons (you can read that review) so wanted to try somewhere else that still offered good value for money. Based on reviews on this site, I chose the YWCA for one week following a (hopefully) permanent move to Montreal. I wasn't disappointed!

First off, the room I booked was on the 6th floor, which is the hostel. Floor 7 is the hotel Y (didn't stay there so not reviewing). The hostel is serviced by a lift so for people with reduced mobility, you won't have any problems. The room was basic but for about $50 a night, that's expected. It had a TV, sink, chest of drawers, closet, fridge (very welcome), kettle, alarm clock and a single bed. It was very comfortable.

The room with toilets was just down the corridor. It was always clean and most of the time I was using it alone. The shower room is also clean and separated into four or five private showers with attached changing cubicles so complete privacy is guaranteed. The water temperature was hot, although it did get hotter throughout the shower so I had to constantly turn the temperature down. But hey, at least it had hot water!

Other facilities included a computer room with computer and internet. I didn't use that because I had my laptop and the whole place has free wi-fi. There's also a laundry room, which again I didn't use, but I think it was $1. There was also a kitchen with attached dining room with fridges, cupboards etc. Most of the kitchen equipment seemed to be provided, although there was a serious shortfall of spoons!

The location of the hostel is also really good. It's about a 1 minute walk to St Catherine Ouest, a good shopping street. The nearest supermarket was just 10 minutes away at most. The Lucien L'allier metro stop was a block away and there were other metro stations just a bit further away. The hostel is also really close to the central train station - 5 minutes walk (depending on how you catch the traffic lights). And the 747 express bus from the airport stops a block or two away as well. So a great location!

The only problem I found with this hostel is that the walls are quite thin. That seems to be a Canadian thing though. Unfortunately I had someone inconsiderate next to me for part of my stay who liked to watch TV starting at 4am and it always woke me up to. I could also hear people walking in the corridor quite easily, especially if they had heels on. But those are my only complaints!

In short, if I ever needed to stay in a hostel again then I'd pick this place. It was good.

Great location, great service and great room at a good room rate!

We have this private room for 2 nights in late August. Love the place, its convenient to go everywhere in Montreal downtown. Especially if you are ok with bicycles, there are bixi station just behind the hotel.

The staffs are very friendly. Share bathrooms are clean and well maintained. No problem with waiting for the shared bathrooms as we are up early and back there very late. The room we stayed is not facing the street, therefore, its quiet and has a good view of the old montreal buildings.

Will go back again if I have a chance.

I would like to comment on this idiot about bed bugs, he has to consider that maybe he is the one that brought them with him in his bags, clothings....people think before writing bad comments, and people think when reading them, because some people just want to stay for free. This guy had also been refunded, THINK, if the hotel didn't care, would he have been refunded, NO.
Hotels are not to be blamed for bugs, because CLIENTS are the one bring them with them, in your luggages, yours purses, your bags and clothing. You could have got them by going to a friends, or family member home, you could have got them going to a clinic etc....
Unfortunately Governement do not want exterminators to use the strong stuff, therefore they use only ECO product, which are not really effective. And i would not say that 1 room that has bugs is an infectation IT'S NOT.

Therefore people please think before reading these idiot comments.

Anyways it seems that the last one that had made the comment about this hotel, with bugs, was out drinking all night.....

Anyways, i enjoy going back to this hotel and so does my family and friends.
