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!

Liked: I liked the bar and kitchen

Disliked: I disliked the fact that the price shown on hostelbookers is not the actual price that you pay on arrival. They charge extra if you are not a member and their price doesnt include tax. I also disliked that they did not provide fitted sheets for the beds.
