    Poor information

    If I knew I had to go up to 4th floor with no elevator I didn’t pick this hostel in first place. They had 3 flight (29 steps) to each floor. Then the staff didn’t tel me code for entrance will change every day. Second night when I came back from Quebec, I couldn’t go in had to call for help. The guy came down to let me in but he didn’t tell me the code for the room also had changed. I had to go down to 2nd floor to find him to get the code to get in a room. Is it too much to ask just tell us “we have to get new code every day” at when we checked in ? I was so exhausted, wasn’t happy at all.

    Very low key, welcoming, calm and thus making the stay pretty cool. Location is great! A bit noisy (construction outside, was in the Rose room), coming from NY, I would call it no big deal!

    Budget friendly and artsy hostel

    Friendly and artsy hostel, kept clean, kitchen and community room are great amenities. The fresh muffins and bread are tasty! Great way to meet new people from all over, and see old Montreal on a budget.

    Sets a high bar for hostels!

    My first hostel stay could not have been better! Clean accommodations, clean bathrooms, friendly staff, friendly fellow guests, and a kitchen in the common room to cook in. Hugo and his team are amazing.

    Friendly enviroment. Good location. Clean facilities. Low budget. When using pc there‘s no plug beside bed, more convenient if there is.
