Decent location near a subway stop along a funky street with lots of ethnic eateries. Stayed in two different rooms, two different nights..both rooms felt really cramped. I almost wish they took out one set of bunks per room then charged more for each bed to make space sufficient.They should add a mirror to each dorm and a towel hook in each bathroom. Beds due for new sheets. They're building a new extension, that might have better rooms. Slow paced check-in process, awesome waffle breakfast.

Comfortable and very clean. Great layout in the female dorms. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Bar downstairs was a good place to chill. Management put a lot of thought in how to offer a great accommodations experience to travellers

Probably one of the best hostels in Canada. On par with boutique hostels in South America and Europe. Thoughtful layout, Crisp sheets, free towels changed every morning! Nice that they have power outlets next to each bunk. They bake the breakfast croissants fresh overnight! My only complaint is that they may need to get the A/C in room 316 serviced. Other than that, I appreciated my stay at M Montreal.

Clean hostel, a bit pricey though. The type of bathrooms you hope for when hosteling - spacious, new and with good water pressure.

I'm quite fond of this hostel. Stayed at their 6th floor location throughout June. Staff is wonderful, facilities are well cleaned and the breakfasts are great. My only suggestion would be to add rings to the wooden cabinets in the dorms so that they can be used with a lock and to add a full length mirror to the dorm rooms. All in all a well run place - I keep meaning to try other hostels when I pass through BA but it's hard to resist coming back. A good home away from home

A nice, chill place. Met some good people here. It was great that each bunk had an outlet and reading light. Bathrooms were clean, pillows are due for a change and the dorm room I was in could use a fresh coat of paint. Their bus-booking service is was very convenient. Having eggs available for breakfast was a nice touch. There aren't any heaters in the rooms so during a cold spell it can get quite chilly inside. But all in all a very friendly hostel.

Spacious rooms. One morning they hardly had breakfast, had to chase down someone for something to eat, at it was only 9am. Staff not as accommodating/friendly as other hostels, were quite distant.

Great value with all of the bonuses -free nightly glass of wine, empanada-making classes where you can then eat several empanadas, free use of washing machine...Stayed three nights and got our 4th free. This hostel seems to attract a good crowd of travelers. Staff was so friendly, accommodating & enthusiastic. Great common areas. Stayed in a private on the top floor; very tidy but room itself a bit old and worn & bathroom was very small, but it looked like the hostel was halfway being renovated

What a delight! A better choice for private rooms vs booking a private room at a regular hostel. Great location. Our room was super clean, well decorated, extremely comfortable and thoughtfully furnished. Probably the best bed I've slept in in Argentina. This B&B has great facilities, good breakfast and feels fresh given that its fairly new. Staff is friendly, accommodating and attentive and the management was very professional while at the same time seems to understand the needs of travelers

Definitely a good choice if you want to be in walking distance to the downtown sights. Staff was very friendly and attentive . Quite chilly inside during the winter but propane heaters were available.

Probably one of the most unique hosteling experiences I had out of all the hostels I stayed at in the past ten years. Truely a gem of a place out in the countryside of Uruguay, but still fairly accessible. Monica is a wonderful host and the meals were lovely (didn't get a chance to meet Miguel as he was out of town). I was out there on my own but this would be a great place to go if you're traveling as a couple as the rooms are very quaint. If you're out there during good weather, your set!

A nice, family-run hostel. Very clean and tidy with super friendly staff. Nice wood fireplace in the living room, but if you are sensitive to fire-place fumes you might not want to stay in the dorm room directly behind the chimney. Really close to the bus station. Loved the artisinal bread during breakfast and the home-made flan was a treat.

Very, very helpful and accomodating staff. Ask to stay in an AC room - they are inside the main building - the other rooms are outside and are less clean. Hire their tuk tuk driver, Vanna, to drive you around to all of the temple sites - he's a great guy, very informative and friendly.
