    Funky sweltering hotbox

    by

    Set in the midst of the most vibrant of Montreal neighborhoods known as the Latin Quarter, this funky alternative hostel makes up for an overall sloppy appearence with its great location and devil may care attitude.

    Unique Quality: The place looks like a frat house after a huge party, with people sprawled in sleeping bags everywhere and in the heat wave that swept Montreal that weekend, it was a sweltering hotbox, but I found some cool breezes sleeping on our balcony. Somethings money can't buy, and this is one of them.

    Directions: Just off Saint Laurent in the Latin Quarter

    Auberge Chez Jean
    $18 a night, cheapest you can find.

    Unique Quality: This is a gorgeous 3 story appartment in the heart of Montreal- walking distance to St.Denis and St.Laurent! There are mattresses (couches, hammocks and vans outside in the back) stuffed with people- there are also several annexes nearby that tend to be quieter and less crowded. I love this place! So many cool people to meet there AND there's a kitchenette on every floor so you can cook your meals. Jean is also a very cool man!

    Directions: 4136 rue Henri Julien between Metro stops Mont Royal and Sherbrooke.

Though Montreal has its share of sights, the thing that sets it apart from the rest is the diverse and colorful neighborhoods which you must take the time to explore on foot. There was a haze emanating from the Montreal skyline as we crossed the Port Champlain Bridge that suggested the Sahara rather than Antarctica, and throngs of scantily clad pedestrians belied the truth at hand. We were in for a heat wave that braced the city perhaps once a summer. Oh well, we were here to drink beer, not run a marathon so we headed over to Auberge Chez Jean, a funky little hostel in the Latin Quarter, one of the most colorful neighborhoods of downtown Montreal. The place reeked of shoestring travel ambience and in cooler weather; it would be a great place to stay for a few weeks to soak in all that Montreal has to offer. As it was, it was a sweltering hotbox and sleeping there would be akin to basking in an open oven. It was the Jazz Festival and with only one and half days to explore, there was no time to look for anything better. Besides, at $24 for a double with breakfast and a great central location, who could complain about lack of oxygen while you slept?

After showers, it was time to hit the town. A late lunch of smoked meat at local cult institution, Schwartz's, was first on the agenda. No beer in this throwback deli, just black cherry soda to wash down the delectable juicy sandwich. At this point, I kind of wished it had been nightfall to offset the heat and not make me feel guilty about dragging my cohort to a brewpub without even the most rudimentary stab at sightseeing. But with long summer days, I argued it was too hot to walk around the Old Town. It would be more pleasant and relaxing to sit in an air-conditioned pub. After all, it was Happy Hour.
