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 stayed in the Pink dorm for 6 nights. They had everything I needed, the location was perfect, There was a window fan/AC unit which cooled the room. Staff were helpful whenever I asked them a question. The rooms & bathrooms were clean. There were lockers for you to put a backpack in, with lock provided if needed. The front door is locked after 12 am, so since I was always back before then, I never had to use the key code for it. I would definitely stay here again if I'm in Montreal! Thanks!

    Really enjoyed my stay. Staff were very helpful and the rooms and common area were amazing. There was a small aircon unit in the 10 bed dorm - but it was a very hot week of summer and was very hot in the room some nights. Otherwise perfect

    Hostel with a great common space where all people come together. My recommendation: book the 10 bed room because in the 9 bed room you got 3level beds.

    First time in Montreal, first time traveling alone. I really enjoyed my stay here: the hostel had everything I needed, I felt very accommodated; and also well taken care off, as the staff was very attentive and were available to answer any questions I had. The common room was big and beautiful, with places to sit and eat, or write, or chat, or play music, or games, or whatever, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Made the trip really easy for me.

    Overall a good experience; clean, comfortable, and well located. At my particular bunk there was no outlet (and also no light), so I couldn't charge my phone overnight, which made it very awkward to try to find ways to charge it bit by bit throughout the day. And I was disappointed that the common area actually shuts down a little after midnight, so there's nowhere to go except to bed after this time. Other than this, it was a good place, and worth the money.
