Liked: I have always had such positive experiences at HI in Canada and this is no exception! The atmosphere is friendly and fun without being messy and dirty and full of gross people! The free activities were so good and gave single travellers a chance to make friends.my stay was amazing, safe, fun, comfortable and well located!!

Disliked: If I'm going to be picky..There's not a lot of toilets available if there is someone in yours in the room. It might be nice to have individual lights at the beds like the one in QC. a lift wouldn't go astray! Oh and the staff need to learn their left from their right as they sent me across the road and one block to the left for the bus to the airport when it's one block to the RIGHT and across the road.

Liked: Very friendly place. The bar/restaurant is a great place to hang out and grab a drink or a bite! The breakfast is good too — bagels, breads, cereals, milk, tea/coffee, and orange juice!

Disliked: The room did not have enough "floor space" for all the luggage, hence was a bit crammed up!

Liked: Location is great! 10 min. walk from the train station. Staff is really nice and approachable. The lobby area is welcoming, breakfast is quite decent.

Disliked: There was either an afternoon, or an evening, activity each day - it would have been nice to do both the same day! Hopefully more activities are offered during the summer season. There was construction on my floor so I had to navigate around workmen as I was coming or going. The bathrooms were alright but could use a little more stuff in them - hand towel? Hooks? A bath mat so the floor doesn't get soaked after a shower?

Liked: I like everything about this hostel. The ubication is perfect, you can easily reach it either by bus, by metro or by train station. Is in downtown, which means you have a lot of things to do by walk. There are activities for free, which are very convenient if you're travelling alone. Staff speak well both english and french, all the staff was very friendly and willing to help and give you advice.

Disliked: Unlike the other HI at Quebec, this one doesn't include the breakfast and even if you pay for it, you have to wash your dishes (sorry, I'm lazy). But despite that, I cannot think in another thing I hadn't liked!
