Hostelworld says:

Montreal Central is in a great location surrounded by shopping restaurants and public transport, within walking distance of Notre-Dame Basilica and Vieux Montreal. This hostel offers a lot of popular extras, such as free local calls, free breakfast, a mini-fridge in each room and lockers, reading lights and power sockets for each bed. Hostelworld travellers tell us, 'every evening there is another programme, so when you don't know what to do, just go out partying with the hostel staff and guests; they know how and where to party'.

  • Montreal Central says

    I think what makes us special is that we focus on small but significant details to improve our guests' stay. We've got 24hr reception, free Wi-Fi throughout the building, freshly-made continental breakfast, free tea and coffee all day, free local calls and a decent selection of DVDs and board games. We also have local musicians playing private shows twice a week for our guests.
    Montréal's reputation for great food surpasses that of any other city in Canada and small eateries are now so popular that locals are ready to wait and brave any type of weather in front of their establishment. For the best Poutine in town, La Banquise is your place. For meat lovers, Schwartz and its famous smoked meat sandwich will have you drooling with anticipation. Those who've had a late night and wake up to the sound of pounding headaches must go to L'Avenue, for it's the best brunch in town…remember to pay a visit to the bathroom (you won't forget it).
