The hostel has a perfect location, is very clean, is pretty and the staff was nice. The kitchen was perfect equipped and arriving and leaving were very easy. Good place to stay in Quebec City for less money!

I got recommendation from my friends who have already been this hostel and end up staying here for 5 nights in the private twin room with the shared bath room! Except for no elevator, I was content with everything they offered. Good service, large extra spaced room, clean bath room and convenient location :) If you don't want to share a room or low budget to stay in hotel, this condition would be the best choice I believe!

This is a big hostel with all the usual HI features.
However the beds were small and squeaky and there are often large groups of children. I was on the second floor and the noise from the third floor sounded like they had made a game of jumping off the top bunks or had perhaps smuggled in a herd of pet elephants.

My main issue with this hostel is that I had to change rooms. Now I understand that sometimes this is necessary and my problem is not with having to change but with our very different ideas on how changing rooms should actually happen.

How I think changing rooms should happen:
1) go down to reception around checkout time and get the keycard for you new room.
2) move your stuff to the new room.
3) return key for old room to reception.

How this hostel thinks changing rooms should be done:
1) pack up all your stuff and carry it down stairs (there is no lift)
2) leave your stuff down there until check in time (not sure if you are expected to pay for a locker but I wouldn't put it past them).
3) go out until 2pm (did I mention I was sick at the time?)
4) collect new key and carry everything back upstairs again.
5) unpack everything again.

Now I did not end up doing this (I mentioned that I was sick) and they eventually let change rooms the sensible way. But I was not impressed.
The manager told me that they do it this way as they need to clean the rooms. But as they do not make you move your luggage out everyday to clean (yet, I hope I am not giving them any ideas!) obviously the cleaning staff is well used to cleaning around the bags.

I was actually considering extending my stay here but I would have had to change rooms again and as they go out of their way to make it as difficult and inconvenient a process as possible I decided that it was easier just to leave.

Good day,
We are so sorry for this inconvenient, unfortunately it does not happen often, we had a group that came in late and made some noise at arrival. When client are unsatisfied during their stay it is easier to change things so we can change a situation for their happiness.

Don't hesitate to call me when you are back in the city it will be my pleasure to assure your stay is perfect.

The location could not have been any better!
Located right inside the old Quebec City walls, this place is easy to find and so convenient.
If you need parking there is a garage within walking distance. Be sure to ask the front desk for the discount.
This place is huge. It basically takes up the entire block. The rooms are good size and very clean! They have laundry machines available on site. The breakfast was included and consisted of juice, coffee, tea, muffins, cereals, oatmeal, fruit, breads with spreads.
I thought this place was well worth the price. The front desk staff was very helpful and nice. Provided maps and recommendations for our stay.
The age range for the guests varied from very young to quite old. We didn't notice any issues or major noise during our stay. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the water pressure was fine.

I love HI-Quebec for many reasons, but primarily for the following:

- The location is fantastic. It's easy to get around Old Quebec on foot, and it helps so much that the hostel is smack dab in the middle of the city
- Planned daytime activities were pretty good (while I was there). I was able to go to Montmorency Falls and take a ferry to Levis
- Helpful staff
- Decent breakfast (you either pay a bit more when you reserve the room to have this included during your stay, or you can purchase a voucher in the mornings)
- Huge kitchen
- Cleanest bathrooms I've used at any hostel so far!

Some small issues I had:
- The door in the room I had could not open/shut quietly, so that disrupted my sleep sometimes (If you're a light sleeper, this will probably be an issue)
- You have to go downstairs to use Wi-Fi (although you may be able to use it from your room if you're on the second floor above the kitchen or something)

Overall it's a good place! I would stay here again :)

right in the heart of old town so can get to most of the main attractions on foot. The place is clean and tidy and one of the more quiet hostels so a good nights sleep is had (perhaps the walls are thicker?). The breakfast you can pay extra for (a few dollars a day) has coffee, fruit, toast/bagels and cereals - well worth the extra for the breakfast. Nice big kitchen and common areas too.
