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.

The metal bunk bed isn't great for the shifting the other (above, or below) person makes in the middle of the night. The whole piece of furniture moves, as each person moves. Not the best for either person......

Hello and thanks for the feedback. The beds that we used are to most common in the hostel business, but I agree with you that this could definitely be improved! I am currently looking for different types of bed and hopefully we will be able to get a new type in the near future! Happy Travels, Nic, management team

We liked having local suggestions on the boards. The parking was a few blocks away and there was construction on the street which was less convenient for getting around, but hostel was in walking distance to many forms of public transportation and local eateries. The staff spoke both French and English which was helpful. We were in a 4 bed girls room and our roommates were polite and respectful. Breakfast was fantastic. ATM located in lobby for easy access to Canadian currency.

Excellente idée... mais un peu difficile à réaliser en plein centre-ville! Cela dit, plusieurs stationnements abordables sont disponibles près de l'auberge. Je verrai avec l'équipe de réception si l’information est correctement diffusée. Au plaisir d'une prochaine fois, Nicolas, équipe de direction

Staff was friendly. No storage for large bags on the first floor. Sewer smell. Mold in shower room. Room was hot and humid due to poor ventilation---even turning the t-stat to lowest temp did not work. Mudhole outside of hostel, due to construction. I had a near fatal car accident from lack of sleep because of the conditions at this hostel.
