Liked: Great rates for breakfast included! They had lockers for storage, people were always available if you had questions, and the place was well cleaned. Free wifi, and they even supplied towels along with bedding.

Disliked: Breakfast could have had a few more options. Also there was construction going on across the street - it wasnt noisy, but didnt look nice despite the hostel itself being a very well-maintained building inside and out.

Liked: The staff is really helpful and friendly. Lockers in the room seem to be solid and safe. You'll have to bring your own locker though. The common room has a welcoming atmosphere and even has a pool table. You'll also have breakfast there which consists of beagles, cereals, fruits and jam (so it's quite good). You can participate on various activities like biking, city tours or bar crawls throughout the week. We didn't do that though since we had our own programme.

Disliked: The windows in the rooms can't be opened. This is especially annoying if the room smells like piss – and ours did. After a while we learned the smell comes from the bathroom which was why we kept the door shut. Might be that we were unfortunate but it made our stay really unpleasent. Also for the tiny room (we stayed in a 6 bed dorm) the price of 30$ (25$ for members) appears to be quite high.

Liked: It was very sociable and had an interesting mix of people due to the location in French speaking Canada. I had probably the most sociable experience during my time in Canada when staying at this hostel in Montreal. There were lots of activities on offer as well.The location, although not the prettiest area of the city, was conveniently located - close to the metro system and a short walk from the bars and restaurants.

Disliked: There was some building work going on close to the hostel which was a bit of an eyesore but that is not the fault of the hostel.
