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

    Great hostel, would stay again. Good location in old town, very close to metro Station. Staff was super friendly. Breakfast not included but cheap (mostly breads with various spreads, cereal, fruit, juice, hard boiled eggs...homemade muffins though!). Showers and bathrooms were small but kept clean. Large lockers provided under bed, door to the dorm had a keypad on it. Kitchen was nice and easy to cook in. Lots of people hanging out in common room until it closes at midnight.

    Beautiful part of town, and a really cool space! There are three guitars, a boxdrum, and a keyboard free for use. A five minute walk from a waterfront. Lots of seating and a roomy kitchen. The rooms fits 9 people you often dont even notice when people are hanging out in their bunks. The lockers are very small, so most people need to leave their luggage out. The hostel is right next to a pub, and after 9pm the streets can get extremely loud, also early in the morning with working trucks.

    A funky place in beautiful old Montreal. Staff are friendly & very helpful, and speak English & French (at least two of them also speak Spanish), so don't worry if you're not fluent in the local language. There ARE tons of stairs, but facilities are good. Brownie points for having wifi that works on all levels and in the dorms! The vibe is a bit strange - no one talks in the dorms, but common room is fine (though gets a tad rowdy at night). Also, the day guy (Simon?) with the hat has cool music!

    Didn't expect a three bunk bed (the 9 person room). They felt very shaky, I would not have felt safe climbing to the top. Please note the hostel starts on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator. However, their kitchen set up is great and we loved the location.

    Location is the best however the washroom was always in trouble. The toilet and sink had many issues, the male staff service were okay, they could smile a bit more.

    I was not impressed with this hostel. It's rated way higher than it should be. No common area at night, staff was a bit rude. Really gotta recommend M Hostel over this one.
