This was our first hostel experience and it was absolutely amazing! The customer service was very nice and helpful. They went out of their way to tell as about places to visit in Montreal. Breakfast and Internet was included in the very cheap price. The main lobby had board games, a computer, TV, movies, video games, and tables to sit down and talk with other travelers. The dorm room was very clean and well heated. It was a wonderful experience at Alexandrie and I highly recommend this hostel to anyone that is looking for an economic option with brilliant service.

I had a great time staying here for 3 days, I lashed out and stayed in a private room (such a great price for private) and it was in a apartment at the back of the main hostel with its own kitchen and bathroom shared with only 3 other people. The staff at the hostel are great and so is the free walking tour they have on Wednesdays, great opportunity to see the city and meet others in the hostel. Our tour guide H went above and beyond and took us walking for longer then he needed to and was full of info.
It was quite a trek from the central station and bus terminals however is quite close to the metro that gets you there and downtown.
Construction across the road starts at 7.30am which was a bit sucky however not something anyone can help.
I would absolutely recommend this to my friends and stay again. Thanks!!!

A big thank you to the Montreal Youth Hostel because it is literally the best place I've stayed at including 4 star hotels. If you want a secure, convenient and clean place to stay, this hostel has got it. But it also has its hidden gems: friendships waiting to be developed, interesting stories waiting to be heard, friendly staff eager to help with your questions or demands, and a great atmosphere that will put a smile on your face everyday! I would go again and again with no hesitation just because I love my smiles and I'm addicted to this experience!

This hostel is totally awesome. I stayed here for 4-5 days and I had a great time partying with the people in the hostel. If you want to sleep, the rooms are far from the common room mostly so that no problem. The hostel owners have a little son who is mad cute, he's fun to play with when drunk. Its a 5-10 min walk to the metro.

Loved my stay here. The price was fantastic, the staff is friendly and helpful, and it's in a great location. There's free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, AND free laundry. (The catch is, you only have certain hours to use the machine: 5-9pm.) The facility kind of seems like a big warehouse converted into a hostel. I stayed in a section a bit farther away from the main area (where you'd eat breakfast). That section had a few rooms and its own little common area where there was a table, some seats, a television, a dryer, and lockers. One downside is that the beds seemed a bit squeakier than others I've slept in, but the linens I received were very clean. For the price of the hostel, it's really quite a good deal.

The price was excellent, breakfast was included, you have access to a kitchen and it is in a great location. I took a long my lock and had access to a locker. The common room was full of friendly travelers - it felt very Bohemian. I would stay again.

Room Tip: As long as you are the type of person that can handle hostels, you can't go wrong here
