Property Description

An ‘auberge’ translates as an ‘inn’ and ours is situated in a 1875 warehouse, which we restored and rejuvenated. The basic attributes and rich textures of the old city building: the rock walls, the old hardwood floors, the arched windows and high ceilings.

The ‘Auberge Alternative’ is an budget boutique hostel. The art of travelling moves us through internal as well as external landscapes and often a creative urge demands to link the two. The Auberge Alternative is an eco-friendly and artsy hostel providing accommodation and resources to travellers and artists alike to join us in redefining bohemia. Welcome to the Alternative.

Please note that we are on three levels, with no elevator. View House Rules

    I had a lovely time at the hostel, located right in the center of old Montreal. It was a prime location for accessible bars and restaruants, the staff was friendly and very helpful, and the space was clean, yet still had character and a family feeling.

    The common area is great, pretty hip. Everything is kept clean, and we get fresh linens and towels on check-in. There is a locker for keeping valuables (keep a padlock, though they lend you one for free if you ask). Overall, only one major room for improvement: breakfast should start earlier than 7:30, given that so many occupants like to start early!

    Hostel staff were very nice took the time to say hello in the kitchen area. Atmosphere was good music playing and a nice sofa area to relax in. Everyone else in the dorm had a duvet I was only given a sheet although there were cupboards on the floor with extra blankets.

    Other than people snoring and people telling you to quiet down, it not a bad place. Got a full kitchen, clean bed and bathrooms, security is good. It just the other people small petty complaints that bother me, nothing on the staff though.

    Stayed two nights in 20 mix dorm and it was not bad but now super good either. Location is the best value. Other than that, I would say it was slightly below normal since it has a quite atmosphere that makes people hard to meet other traveler. Staffs also are helpful as much as I ask for. There are some long-stayed guests and one of them was randomly playing instrument and singing weird after 12am and weird part was nobody stopped her or something(I guess she did quite often I don't know)
