Liked: very close to bus station, very friendly staff

Disliked: it's rather a hostel for people who come to party in Montreal, not many actually travelled. Kitchen turned into a bar at 9pm already. Rooms are very small, 6 bed dorms only contained 4 lockers and had hardly enough space for everybody's luggage. Aircon (that is needed) directly at one person's bed.

Liked: Not only was the hostel in a great location, but the staff was extremely helpful, going out of their way to give suggestions, and directions. The room was immaculate, and I was baffled to see we got maid service! Could not have been more pleased!

Disliked: Breakfast was bland, but it was free, so I'm not going to complain about it!

Liked: It is close to the bus terminal. Very convenient for travellers arriving in Montreal by bus to reach the hostel. The breakfast was nice and food is plentiful.

Disliked: The 6-bedded dorm I stayed in has only 4 lockers. And out of these 4, 2 lockers were apparently locked for some reason unexplained to guests staying in the room. So 6 guests for only 2 available lockers, so whoever is the luckiest or earliest gets the locker! The hostel should have enough number of lockers for the number of beds in the room.

Liked: It is so close to the main bus station on Berri it's perfect! Clean, more like a hotel with clean towels provided every day! Very friendly, welcoming staff, supermarkets and metro station nearby

Disliked: Needs some female only dorms. Kitchen is very small, but not overly busy so it was ok. Free breakfast is great- of you can eat wheat! Nothing gluten free!

Liked: Great location, friendly staff, every night there was something going on at the hostel so a great way of meeting other travellers. The breakfast that is included was fantastic!

Disliked: The amount of tax you had to pay on arrival. There is no mention of this in any of the paperwork and it was an extra $6 pp per night! Also it said free parking but this isn't correct, we had to pay another $12 for overnight parking.

Liked: This hostel had a great atmosphere, entertainment and free dinner on friday night was a plus! Had all the facilities you needed and was very clean, great breakfast and good location.

Disliked: The beds! I thought they were so uncomfortable, through the mattress you could feel the slate i had to sleep half way down the bed just so it wasnt digging in my back!

Liked: The staff were very friendly and the property was immaculate. Super helpful with directions, maps, food recomendations, etc. There were a bunch of student protests right around the corner, with a lot of police, and the hostel staff were good at explaining what was happening (it was mostly peaceful). I never worried.

Disliked: Not much, really. My bed was right next to the AC (which while not running, was still drafty), but other than that, great!

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. They were also happy to suggest places to go and things to do. The bar sold quality beer for 2/$4, much cheaper than other bars in Montreal! I stayed in a room with 6 beds, which was very clean and had a private bathroom. I can't think of anything wrong with this hostel!

Disliked: Justin left no negative feedback.

Liked: Pretty much everything! From the cute (and friendly!) at reception to the freshly made breakfast that's included in the price. I was worried that the bar would be loud late at night, especially since our room was on the first floor, but we never had a problem with it, and I'm a light sleeper. All the staff were super friendly and helpful.

Disliked: It'd be nice if it were a bit closer to the old part of Montreal, but it's not a bad walk when the weather is nice (we happened to be there during an especially cold spell), and it's very close to the metro.
