12 September 2010

Liked: I think it depends on who works there, and who are the guests : sometimes it is clean, sometimes it is not, sometimes people are nice, sometimes no. I didn't like the handyman, who was rude. I was happy to be in the Annexe, it was a great experience, and the young blond man working was really nice, but I wouldn't like to be in the principal place, the only one open during the year, where the atmosphere is so bad. During the summer, go to the Annexe, it is better, even if further from the metro.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Chez Jean has another house just a few blocks away which offers Private rooms and the same price, why not right??! The house I stayed in Had two rooms completely unfurnished and was exactly what was needed for a two night stay with my friend. Right next to La Parc Fontaine and the Metro is only 5 blocks away. Definetly what you pay for!

Disliked: The house I was in had very little water pressure. I also would have preferred to stay in the main hostel had i known that is where most other people are living. There are four beds upstairs, a hammock, 3 couch beds and two beds downstairs. It is a Hostel in every aspect.

Liked: Very inexpensive and is located in a local area when in comparison to the eateries and shops.

Disliked: It seemed as if the administration was extremely biased when it came to dealing with people who spoke a language other than french. Even though they speak english well at the hostel i would be ignored or blown off if i made a request or attempted to communicate in english, my first language.

Customer review

24 September 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: An absolute great place to meet other travelers and the staff were friendly and helpful. Do not stay here though if privacy is a must and do not expect the Ritz. The three floors have people sleeping on hammocks, on couches, outside on bunk-beds and even in the flatbed of a truck! The price per night is so cheap, it's to be expected... and all that said everyone was very friendly and respectful.. no one partying late into the night, not a long wait to use the shared bathrooms. If you're on a budget and looking to make friends during your stay in Montreal, I would definitely recommend Chez Jean.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

30 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It wasn't a bad place, it just wasn't as good as some of the others I've stayed at. I didn't get the feel of a community. Staff was not around, so no one to ask questions of, only double beds provided and no air conditioning - if it is hot out, it is HOT AS HECK! Location was okay, near some things on the plateau, but far from others. Also, in the summer, you won't know ahead of time which location at which you will be sleeping.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Customer review

28 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: a typical 2-stories house, not far from metro station and from St Denis street which is a great place to hang out. You would probably want to stay there if you want to meet people - in summer, many people arrive/leave every day. Very little space (beds in every corners, in halls too).1 home computer, free wireless, free telephone (local calls). The owners are friendly and cool. Also a good place to relax in the evenings after a long day of visiting the city.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
