“Health / Bedbug Alert”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2006

I enjoyed staying at this hostel. But for the price it has cost me I could have stayed in the nicest hotel in Montreal.

This place is infested with BEDBUGS. Bedbugs are not a myth, they are absolutely real, flat, red bugs about 1/4 inch long that only come out at night. They are easily prevented as hostels by routinely dusting the beds with a non-harmful insecticide dust dust. La Maison Du Patriote does not do this.

Some came home with me and now my house is infested. I have had to throw away my mattress, wash everything I own in hot water, or throw it away, or put it on storage for a year (that is how long they take to die), seal my couches in plastic with chemicals, and bring in an exterminator three times. I have even missed work twice due the the labour and the stress. Thank goodness I don't live in an apartment, I could have infected an entire building.

Please DO NOT STAY HERE unless you plan on washing everything you bring in scalding water when you come home.

Stayed May 2006

This place is dreadful and a fire hazard.
We stayed during the Grand Prix period and people
were squashed in like sardines.
We were kept awake all night by other quests
ringing the downstairs door bell all night plus
the phone ringing. The owners do not stay on site.
The breakfast was bought on the Thursday and nothing
was replaced by the time we left on Monday.
This place should be reported to the authorities.

we had a really lovely time at this hostel/b&b. for people like me and my husband who are used to and like staying in hostels it was perfect--they have more than the usual number of private rooms, their prices are very reasonable and their location is great if you want to be in old montreal. our room was small but very clean and very warm (this was good since it was february) and had a window with nice light. the free wireless was a good bonus as was the kitchen which was generally pretty clean. and just generally the place had a warm friendly feel.
it would be almost too good to be true except for a couple things...there are only two bathrooms for the whole place which can be a bit of a problem at certain times (like in the morning when a lot of people want to take a shower). it would be nice if the shower was separate from the sink and toilet as both bathrooms were pretty much fully booked with a line outside from like 6 in the morning on til about 9. also there seemed to be a really big group of people staying in the upstairs dorm the second night we were there and they ate all of the breakfast food (except for a very big box of cheerios) by 8 am.
in all though i would totally recommend this place to folks paying a visit to montreal. and i would stay here again too.
