Stayed for 2 nights in four bed dorm. Easy walking distance to major attractions and close to many good restaurants and nightlife. Little on noisy side so you may want to bring earplugs. Private bathroom in room always a plus and security guard on women's dorm. Skip the bar/cafe better good less than 100m down the street. I particularly liked the Lebanese restaurant and grumpys bar.

Bonjour Maggie D,

I am happy to read that you had a good time while staying with us! If I may, I would add that despite the kind advice you mentioned, no one should need earplugs to enjoy their night of sleep and we will make sure to be more vigilant to ensure a quiet stay for all.

Greetings, Au Revoir et Bon Voyage!
Nicolas Lemaire, hostel manager

Bonjour Alan,

Firstly, thanks for your comment as it is a great tool for us to get the pulse of the hostel from a guest point of view! I'll pass you kind words to all staff and as for the Café issue you raised, I'll definitely investigate to know what could have happened since the guests are normally pretty happy with it... The good news is that we will make sure to correct whatever went wrong and I'm sure you will be fully pleased next time you come and visit!!

Bon Voyage,
Nicolas Lemaire, Hostel manager

Considering location and services provided, it's a great deal. The staff there is very friendly and the hostel has this weekly program that is great (walking tours, pub crawl, etc).
Definitely will go back there if I'm around.

Really neat and clean dorms with ensuite washroom and bathroom. Staff are superbly friendly, helpful and very willing to answer questions. Staff has good knowledge of montreal and great food recommendations for foodies like me. Near shopping areas and restaurants, walkable distance from via rail. Really enjoyed my stay here!

Hey! Many thanks for this great review! Let's be honest, I think a lot of the staff could be consider «foodies» too! We love to eat in good little local restaurants. So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Take care and see you again maybe!

When I look for a hostel to stay in, the main things I'm concerned about are cleanliness and security. After that comes location, and I was very pleased to find this hostel delivered all three. The rooms were clean, with a private bathroom and shower (always a bonus!). There were two of us who reserved a four-bed female dorm, and with the exception of the first night, we had the room entirely to ourselves. The hostel had a bar on the bottom floor and while we only checked it out the first night, it was nice to have the option. I had my car with us and initially the front desk had warned us about parking. We didn't seem to have a problem finding spots outside, although the residential permit thing can get pretty confusing for those who don't speak French. We stayed here in March, so I would imagine parking would be a lot worse in summer, when tourism is bigger. If I were to have any complaints, that would be the only one- parking. Everything else was great. One front desk worker- I didn't catch his name- took the time to grab a map and circle/highlight areas that we should check out in Mont-Royal, and that was much appreciated. If you're traveling on a budget, this hostel is a great option. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat on my next trip to Montreal. Unless of course, I happen to strike it rich in the mean time and can afford a fancy hotel :)

Room Tip: Shelling out the few extra bucks for a private or even 4-bed room is totally worth it, in my opinion. Our first night, we were stuck with two morons who came in drunk at 5 a.m., yelled when they saw us asleep, turned on the lights and left the room for an hour. Then, of course, they locked themselves out. I've stayed in enough hostels to know that this is totally normal, so I'm not complaining. If you can get a private room, though, you can probably get a way better night's sleep and then wake up early in the morning to check out the wonderful city!

Bonjour Becca!

I'm not too sure what's the best way to answer your review other than: MERCI BEAUCOUP!!!

It's always a pleasure to read such good words about us. So glad you liked it here!

By the way, even if you get super-mega-rich, notice that chances of findind such a cosy mood in a fancy hotel won't be that high ;)

Take good care, hope to see you again!
