Good hostel, great value. It seems like they work hard to have a comfortable environment with lots of activities and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's not a luxury hostel (the comforters are worn, bathrooms are small, breakfast space is small) but you find yourself not caring, because it's in a good location and everyone is so cheerful. It was a very social hostel, but easy to sleep at night. WIN, WIN! :) Would be great for single travelers but, as a couple, it was fine for us too!

Went to Montreal for a long weekend with a couple friends and had an overall great experience at Le Gite. Stayed in a 3 bed private room which was very spacious (and included our own private bathroom). Mattresses were not the most comfortable but that's to be expected at any hostel. Breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful/friendly. The only thing we wanted to draw attention to was that parking was NOT free or available directly from the hotel (as is advertised) which was disappointing

Amazing atmosphere, super helpful staff, cool older building (but very clean!), location is basically in the centre of Montreal. Don't look further, this is the hostel you want!

A nice place to stay in Montreal. The hostel is located a short walk from the bus station and is also close to lots of shops and restaurants and bars. Very nice breakfast.

loved the amazing rooftop terrace, and the pancakes at breakfast with Canadian maple syrup were AMAZING. the front desk was super friendly, and the location near to an airport bus stop was key. the only downside was the mattress, not comfy and made for a poor nights sleep.

Atmosphere was brought down by no hostel activities. Pancakes for breakfast was very generous! Limited toilet to person ratio. Dorm rooms had to be locked on leaving so relied on roommates locking after you'd left. Overall great location and a good place to stay

It's a very nice hostel, in a great location. The only problem was that it closes every common space past 11, so there is no place to hang out in the hostel past that time. This kills the atmosphere, in my opinion. The staff was very friendly, and everything else was very good.

I haven't had stayed at a hostel such as this one in a long time. It was a really good experience. The hostel is very clean, and staff was super kind and serviceable. I haven't seen this cordiality among different members of staff at hostels in a long time, whose service is usually quite average. Besides, breakfast was really good! Yoghurt, orange juice, coffee, pancakes, toast, oranges, all included! Really amazing. I would just suggest adding bananas; they're cheap.

We were very happy with our stay! The price was amazing and everything was very clean and nice. The staff were always helpful and cheerful and there was a delicious pancake breakfast every morning. Location was very nice as well as we traveled by metro for most of our stay and the station was only a couple blocks from the hostel. It was also near a street with amazing restaurants and bars. Will definitely be looking at staying here for next year as well!

I stayed here two nights in March 2015 with a friend. The staff was friendly and helpful, the location was central and the breakfast was fantastic. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. My only complaint is that there was no drum circle as advertised on hostelworld. Overall, I would recommend the hostel and stay here again.

We had a fantastic stay - friendly staff, lovely breakfast, great room, amazing vibe, ideal location. Definitely is our new go-to hostel choice for when we're in Montreal. Right between St Denis & St Laurent, close to Sherbrooke Station... perfect. Great bang for your buck.

We loved Le Git -- the staff was super friendly and helpful, the location is within a 10-15 minute walking distance to most of the major sites and only three blocks from the metro, and the rooms are clean and have lockers. There are many showers and all were clean and had good water pressure. We came in the winter but the porch also looks very fun. Recommended!
