Very much enjoyed my stay, all staff were lovely bar the girl on check out. I was a few minutes late checking out and really felt I'd been a burden. Manners cost nothing and I have to say she brought down my experience of the hostel hugely


was unlucky with a roommate, but overall a solid hostel. nothing to complain about. staff is super helpful, facilities are alright


Very old mattress and bed linen. Room on basement with windows at street level that couldn't be closed, therefore noisy and drafty


Comfortable stay, clean, decent showers. hostel is a short walk to the waterfront or the main bar areas. Would recommend the tours that you can have organised through the front desk, very good company, although probably mainly operate in high season


Everything was great. The location is fabulous

Nice place. Made my stay quite comfortable.


I stayed here for 3 nights. Positives: Great staff, very clean facilities and comfortable accommodation. Breakfast was available and was delicious. Very relaxed atmosphere. Negatives: A little far from downtown Quebec (10-15 minutes drive). The shuttle is very helpful but only runs until 10. We took an Uber back for $25. Overall, I would recommend this hostel, and I enjoyed my stay here.


the hostel was clean well organized and spacious being close to the harbour was very convenient saw many things and enjoyed whole stay . was a bit hot in the upper part of the house but not bad


Amazing location. Was located right near the water front. Everything was within walking distance.
