Montreal Hostel

Hostel Montreal

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI Montreal is centrally located in downtown Montreal, close to Ste-Catherine and Crescent streets, right next to Concordia University, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Bell Centre and the shopping district of Montreal.

The Montréal hostel offers shared and private rooms, each with their own private bathroom, a cafe-bar where you can enjoy breakfasts, dinners or a drink with other travellers, a fully-equipped kitchen that provides basic ingredients (help yourself, but leave some stuff behind for the others!), and free Wi-Fi.

HI Montreal makes a great base for exploring the vibrant, laid-back charms of Montreal. The hostel also organises free daily activities including bike tours, urban walks and pub crawls so you can get a real feel of the city.

Personal muy amable y servicial durante el día,la noche allí un desastre un bar que había mucha gente borracha, recepcionista con la música a tope a las 02:00 Am cuando llegue a esta hora no podía creer de una cuadra se sentía el ruido que había en la puerta del hostel, soy joven y me gusta la fiesta, pero esto se veía poco serio,baje al bar y un ambiente de borrachos y gritos que fue desagradable, me fui a la cama una chica vomitando de borracha en el pasillo.. me pareció muy fuerte.

Holà, Gracias por tomarse el tiempo de dejar su opinión. De más está decir que nosotros debemos diariamente hacer una atmósfera festivalera para los clientes del albergue, pero evitando los excesos y permitiendo a los usuarios disfrutar de una noche de sueño. Su comentario fue entendido y por supuesto y sin duda alguna compartido con todo el equipo para rectificar la situación. Nicolas, Director

Fun hostel with a nice central location, plus they had their own bar, which was great for bringing travelers together. Staff was all bilingual and helpful/friendly in offering parking tips and recommendations for cafes or whatever interests you might seek in the city (they even have a fantastically decorated, large blackboard with categorical lists of places to check out!). For my fellow Francophiles, the music that is the French language is all around!
