Not my cup of tea

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 9, 2011

This hostel is in a nice loc. Just around the corner from Duluth (great restos). The owner has a great sense of humor. Still I did not feel comfortable here: the common areas (kitchen, tv room) closed at 11pm (disappointing!). Basically you were expected to go out and party or go to sleep. I personally like a hostel where on occasion one can stay in and relax until the wee hours of the morning. The rooms were fine, albeit abit chilly (october). The guests were typically young and boisterous. So if you are an older traveller and seeking zen, this is not the place for you. Another tiny peeve, the checkin time was 4pm, relatively late for a hostel. Most hostels permit checkins as early as 1-2pm. When asking for a towel, received a somewhat prickly response, but they did actually give me one :) All in all, the staff was nice, no complaints about that. The major disappointment had to be the closure of the kitchen and television room at 11pm. Uggh.

One of Montréal's youth hostels is the Auberge de Jeunesse close to Boulevard Rene Levesque. I eventually found my way there after the incompetent lady of the VIC had stopped recommending hotels above $80... and I wasn't too impressed. The hostel is alright, but the rooms are pretty narrow and seem to be crowded at all times. Breakfast has to be paid for extra, and it's not really recommendable - small portions and little flavour. The staff, however, seems to be very competent and can help you a lot with things to do in Montréal. There's also a relatively cheap internet access in the cellar.
If you come by car, be aware that there are NO parking lots around in which you don't have to pay an astronomous fee. I parked my car next door in a lot which has a contract with the hostel to offer spaces for a relatively small fee. Nevertheless I had to pay $30 for two days.

Unique Quality: Unique? None. But if you're not too fastidious, the hostel is alright.

Directions: close to Downtown Montréal

I stayed here for a week in a dorm room with 5 beds. Linen and breakfast (bread, jam, coffee and tea) are included in the price ($22/person). There are 3 bathrooms altogether, one on each floor, and I never had to wait for my turn. The kitchen has all the cooking utensils and spices to make a decent meal. The owner is very friendly. This is definitely a good area to stay at, since everything is within walking distance, and especially if you like to eat out. There are just too many good food to try out here!

Unique Quality: The hostel is located in Plateau Mont Royal, a trendy area that has a variety of small shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. It is 2 small blocks from Laurier metro station, and you can actually walk to the heart of downtown in 20 minutes. Parking is free (street parking), and it is always possible to find a spot close to the hostel. Grocery/supermarket is not too far away. A laudromat is located directly across the street. It's got a small backyard if you like to enjoy the sun. Internet seems a bit pricey though (at $1/15 min) and there is only one computer. Try to get a room on the 2nd floor as it could be noisy on the main floor. There are also private rooms available.

Directions: 2 blocks east of Laurier station, SE corner of St Hubert and Gilford

Just wanted to give first time backpackers an idea of what a hostel looks like inside. This kitchen was particularly nice. Most hostel kitchens I've been in have been a little bit smaller and not set up every morning for breakfast.

The soda bottle wasn't left there overnight-- it's mine!

We spent two nights here and my traveling companion really liked it. My opinion was more mixed.

The people in the hostel as well those running it were really very nice, and that counts for a lot. The hostel looks like a regular house: big kitchen, comfy living room, normal sized bedrooms with five or so beds apiece. Unlike some hostels, the bathroom was a single-occupant regular bathroom.

However, the location isn't great-- no nightlife at all unless you take the subway...not much daylife, either. And it was maybe a little too informal-- often no one staffing the reception area, no locks, and neverending waits for the computer because no real time limits were imposed. Also, you have to cross through the kitchen and living room to reach the bathroom and shower...not for the modest!

Unique Quality: They do have an outdoor terrace shared with the house next door that was a great place to chill out, read, play cards and/or have a drink/smoke (alcohol allowed till 10pm out there.) Probably this is a better place for long-term visitors than weekend sightseers.

Directions: About two blocks Northeast from Metro Laurier
