There were only two bad things: we couldn't do the check in until 3pm and the beds were super uncomfy.. I ended up with back spasms. Other than that, the location was relatively close to the train and bus stations as well as Old Quebec. Metro is closeby as well, so it was possible for us to grab some food and freely cook it at the hostel.

When i went here it wasn't that busy, but the cosy hostel created a good atmosphere when people were there. I barely interacted with the staff but were helpful enough when required. I could see it being uncomfortable when busy, with only two small toilets and shower rooms. The location is down the hill from the old city, which is where most people want to go to see but was fine really.

The hospitality of Pierre, Skippy and Bobby was very inviting. It was helpful to share converstion and learn about Quebec and Canada.

La Belle Planete Backpacker was a great place to stay. Very close to the train station, and an easy walk down the promenade to the old city by the port, or up to the old city proper. Fairly quiet at night, good restaurants and a grocery store close by. Excellent wifi connection, and they had a place to leave my bags the day I had to check out.

The guy wasn't quite welcoming, and he wasn't there at times when he should have been (still nobody at 9:45am when it was supposed to open at 9). Just two toilets for at least two dormitories, and the bathrooms are not practical at all (nowhere to put your things). The security wasn't great: the front door remained open all night.

Room was very basic for the price and the outlets did not even work. The comforter on the bed was really dirty and worn.

They need to clean up hard in this hostel.

They said that breakfast is included but its just some old food in the fridge. I locked my door and went to old Quebec, when I came back my door was OPEN. I complained to the hostel's owner (I think his name is Pierre) but he didn't do anything. Nothing was stolen, HOWEVER It could have happened. That's my tip: DON'T STAY IN THIS PLACE.

First night I was there, my room wasn't ready. Instead of compensating me with a better room I got a worse category (and I know that two double bed rooms were available that night). Staff is too relaxed for me. They do everything with minimum effort - that is how it seemed.
