Liked: Great value for your money. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Everything was clean. I liked the decor and atmosphere. Simple breakfast included (toast and fruits). About 5-10 minute walk to the metro.

Disliked: Visibly old and a bit run down (can't shower right after using the toilet because there is no water). No lockers in the rooms (on the main floor). There is no AC but a fan in the room. We had to leave the door open most nights in order to keep the air circulating or else it would get too hot and humid to sleep. However we were there for a particularly hot weekend (35+ degrees).

Liked: The bedroom is clean, and the location is good. People here are friendly, some of them are long-term hosters. I had an international dinner with many of the visitors in the hostel. everyone cooked a dish and shared. They are all very nice.

Liked: - really cool group atmosphere, especially in the lobby - helpful and friendly staff - very close to the bus station - big lockers, not in the rooms though, but still a lot of space for your staff

Disliked: - missing air condition, it became really, really hot in the lobby sometimes - beds are kinda loud, but not too bad

Liked: Had a homely feel and character. It didn't feel like some hostels where they just want to cram as many people in as possible. I liked how the 8 bed dorms were actually divided into 2 separate 4 bed rooms - made it feel more spacious. Free laundry was great, wifi good, comfy couches, really friendly staff, activities, free breakfast, lockers. very convenient location.

Disliked: The room I was in got a lot of traffic noise from the street - but if you aren't a light sleeper this probably wouldn't bother you! Earplugs fixed this for the most part.

Liked: Das war das erste Hostel, indem das Wäsche waschen inkl. Waschmittel umsonst war!! Das frühstück war reichhaltiger als gewohnt, es hat einen Riesen Aufenthaltsraum zum zusammen finden, zwei wunderschöne Dachterrassen und die Lage ist einfach unschlagbar.

Disliked: Sie sin zwar am renovieren und überall am arbeiten, aber im Moment haben die sanitären Anlagen einfach nicht gereicht und waren viel zu weit auseinander. Außerdem haben Krimmer keine Klimaanlage, was an einem Tag mit 37 grad schon unangenehm ist...

Liked: Cool communal area on the ground floor where there's always people hanging out. Plenty of sofas to crash on, TV w/ Nintendo 64, stereo, wifi etc. Easy to meet people, chilled out vibe. Plenty of space, both in the communal room and the dorms. Alexandrie is not like some other hostels I've stayed at where they simply cram as many beds as they can into the smallest possible rooms. 8 bed dorm was separated into 2 rooms of decent size. Also, the staff were very accommodating to a guy that's lost almost all his French-speaking skills!

Disliked: Some parts could do with a new lick of paint! Some might say it adds to the charm. Shared bathroom in the dorm was a little bit grimey but was certainly bearable.

18 April 2012 Jonathan would recommend this property

Liked: It was an older building, but there was tons of space to stretch out in. The main floor "free space" was giant and had lots of comfortable furniture. We loved staying in the two room suite (for 4 people max) that had its own living room and shared bathroom. It also had a kitchen and laundry room that we were not expecting at all, so it felt like we were in a little apartment. The LOCATION could not have been more perfect. We were two blocks from Rue St. Catherine and a few more to two different metro stops. Parking nearby was $12.00 a day in a very safe underground parking lot.

Disliked: Nothing. It was all we were expecting and more. We hope to stay there again.

Liked: Centrally available to lots of places and things in Montreal. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. Free breakfast in the morning was great. Very nice shower. Comfortable bed

Disliked: WiFi didn't work 100% of the time Needs abit more work. Great idea, with a bit of work could be one of the best hostels in the world.

Liked: This place was delightfully weird. It's a converted warehouse, but somehow they still make it feel homey. The other guests were friendly and the staff was kind, funny, and helpful. And it was clean! I would highly recommend Alexandrie to anyone looking for a great hostel experience.

Disliked: The only downside is that this hostel is a bit far from the main streets of downtown (St. Laurent, St. Catherine). This is fine if you have a car, but otherwise you will have to take the (super expensive) Montreal cabs.
