I stayed here 2 nights. The staff were helpful and chilled. The common areas are spacious. For the 20 bed dorm, there is one very good shower/bathroom, otherwise there is a locker style shower area and the showers are push button. The water lasts for about 8 seconds before having to push it again. Not the greatest. Apart from that, a fine hostel

Loved it here. Stayed in the 20 bed dorm, which was basically three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom, also had it's own outdoor patio area. Didn't feel cramped like a 20 person dorm at all. Great people, chill place, lots of space and free internet. Location was perfect and felt totally safe coming and going alone. I'd definitely recommend for solo travellers looking to meet people, or a group looking to stay and explore Montreal.

Great Location, but i don`t like the public showers and don`t buy the lock in the hostel, it might can open others...

Thank for your comment. Guest review will help us to improve. At Alexandrie you have choice ensuite dorm (bathroom Inside the dorm) or public bathroom which is good because cheaper and faster. Nobody can block the all goup. There is urinal, toilet, place to share and shower all those section side by side in 2 rooms: one for women one for men.

The set up was so sweet! I had a private room, and it had its own staircase to the street, so it felt like a little apartment! But then somehow magically you could get through the back door back to the hostel, the coolest setup I've ever seen!

I am travelling the world staying in the least expensive places i can find. This hostel has Lockers everywhere. Clean bahrooms and a pretty sizable kitchen and gathering place. The atmosphere is that of an industrial loft which fits Montreal's architecture style. Got all the basics, on the more expnsive side for shoestring travel.

Alexandrie is a good hostel with all the basic amenities, and a few extras. One small suggestion: you should indicate somehow to the guests that there are extra showers in the basement because we only found out by accident on the second day, and one bathroom is not enough for 8 women! But the staff is very friendly and helpful, hosting fun events and making it very easy to meet people. We made some awesome friends and had a great time. Thanks Alexandrie!

I visited 3 hostels in Montreal, this one, one in Old Montreal area and another on the other end of Rue Saint Catherine. I have to say, this one is the best in a lot of ways and if you want the Montreal experience, stay here. Location was the best, in a sweet part of town, nice cafes, people, grocery stores nearby. I met the best and most interesting people here and spent time together. Staff were hilarious. Without a doubt, I'd choose here again.

This hostel was fantastic. We stayed in the 8 bed female dorm. It was spacious and well kept. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. No question was a problem. They also went around and asked all guests if they wanted to partake in group activities. The common area was conducive to a friendly environment where travellers were able to mix easily. The location was great.

Very old building needs maintenance. Tax rate is 19% when at hi montreal they charge 15% on the receipt of course they don't write the taxes separately.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Provincial and federal taxes are 15% but there is also a tourist taxes 3.5% in montreal. I know that this is not fun but nothing we ca do about it. On our bill you can see all detail. At the end, important is that Alexandrie, has the best price. That we garanty.

Good atmosphere, very nice staff. The building needs a general renovation. Some beds are short: so if you're taller than 180cm ask for a comfortable bed. The same if you have problems for mobility: some rooms and baths have no easy access. Time for breakfast is quite short (it ends at 10.15).

The little bridge to the main building was a bit rickety, but you could always go via the road, and it definitely added to the experience! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the building needs renovation and decorating but all facilities were more than adequate. A great location, easy to get around by foot, bus or bike. My first experience in a hostel for many years, and a good one, thank you.

The Alexandrie is the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The location is great, with easy metro access and right off of Rue Ste-Catherine. The best part about this hostel, though, is the staff. They'll take you out to see the Canada Day fireworks, or a walking tour that includes some of the city's best bakeries. Next time I'm in Montreal, I will definitely stay here again.
