    Grey Nuns provides a wonderful service; private room for less than the cost of most shared 8 bed rooms, and a fabulous location close to St. Catherine Street.

    Excellent weekend @ grey nuns residence. Staff and security excelled at customer service. Rooms and shared bathrooms clean and functional. Excellent location for walking to st Catherine st and near by museum. Parking was available in near by hotel underground for $15 24hrs. Only feedback to improve would be the huge mountain of dirty bed linens in the hallway outside the laundry room near the elavator, need a better system to contain linens to be washed. Thanks, would stay again !

    We absolutely loved staying here! The Residence has no A/C, toilets/showers are shared + coed, and the place is a labyrinth to navigate, but honestly these just added to the charm for us. Other pros: large bright rm with fridge and sink, beautiful serene courtyard, solid security protocol, unbeatable location. Staff warned us that it was a full res for Osheaga wknd but we had no issues with noise or availability of washrooms/showers (incl. hot water). Excellent value, would 100% stay here again!

    Everything as advertised. A clean dorm room in the center of Montreal. My only quibble was that the shower area could have been cleaner.

    Great hostel. Great location with access to Bixie Bikes 100m up the road. We had a sink in our room which turned out to be really handy. Showers were clean and water pressure very good. Wifi was good. Clean towels upon request was great. No kitchen.

    The lock on our private room didn't work from the inside. It only locked from the outside. There was a security guard downstairs and a turnstile to help security. Also no air conditioning. We left the fan on the entire time and the window wide open and were cool. Washrooms were okay, sufficient. They gave us towels which we weren't expecting- good quality and clean so was the bed. The bed didn't look much but was actually quite comfortable!

    Great location! Staff was super friendly and let us leave our bags at the front desk after check out. Bathrooms were questionable, shower door did not lock properly... rooms were very clean but bathroom could definitely use more attention.

    I think it is a great, affordable place to stay. But the noise of slamming doors, at times throughout the night, is extremely jarring and greatly interferes with sleep. Seems like some notices posted throughout the building reminding people to be mindful of others when closing their room doors could easily remedy this problem . If you hold the doors when closing it, it doesn't slam. The slamming is extremely loud and jarring.

    You can't beat the price for the location but you get what you pay for. The bathrooms are gross with dirt, dead spiders and extremely moldy shower curtains. There was no screen in one of the bedroom windows, and one of the fans rattled so hard it moved across the table and would have fallen on the floor if we let it. There was also a dark hair on my sheets. On the positive side, there were no signs of bedbugs or pests. This place is great for a budget but not for the faint of heart.
