Quebec City Hostel

Hostel Quebec City

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI-Québec City Hostel is located in the heart of Old Quebec city, inside the walls and fortifications of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. This characterful hostel is housed in a former convent and is within walking distance from the Château Frontenac and main attractions of the city.

HI-Québec City offers dorms and private rooms with or without bathroom, a café Bistro open for breakfast, free Wi-Fi, bar, living room with TV and library and an outside yard. Daily activities are organised including pub crawls and a ferry tour to take in the magnificent view of Chateau Frontenac and Montmorency Falls.

The Old Town has wonderful historical buildings, beautiful fortifications and narrow cobbled streets which are best enjoyed on foot. Cycling is also a good option as Quebec offers a system of bike paths that run through parks and close to many of the city’s local attractions.

Great central location - friendly staff with plenty of activity options. Work was going on while I was there which made it difficult to access guest kitchen at times. Other than that, a good hostel, that I'd definitely recommend.

This would have to be one of the best hostels in the world. The staff were unreal and have to give a special mention to Charles, thank you for your excellent service and great advice. I could not recommend this Hostel high enough. The guided tours were also great and recommend them also. Thank you all for making my stay so unreal Arthur

A bit pricey compared to other hostels. Breakfast included will be better.

The paid Christmas dinner was a little disappointed, since the foods were too salty and sweet.

Breakfast needs to be included in the price for a bed. Having to pay extra on top of an already higher-priced hostel for a bagel and a banana is crazy!

Hi, the breakfast is quite a bit more than just that! There are two types of cereals, at least two types of fruit, bagels, bread, hard boiled eggs, milk, coffee, tea, jam, peanut butter..... Considering it is a self serve style with ceramic dishes (no waste here!) I think it is quite reasonable for only $ 5.25. Don't forget, if you go for a small dorm or the private or semi-private rooms, breakfast is included! If you only eat a little for breakfast, we have a communal kitchen and fridge where you can store your food.
