    Really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were relatively basic but had everything that you needed. The room was spotless on arrival. There's shared bathrooms but the ratio of bathrooms to rooms is fine, I never had problems waiting for a toilet or shower. The shared bathrooms were cleaned regularly and were much more pleasant than what you'd see in a hostel. Shower pressure was great. The staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities had a secure keycard system and security at the front desk. The loc

    At very first I found it a bit creepy because it is reeeally big and on the first evening I didn't meet anyone in the long corridors. But the room was super nice and big, everything was very clean including the bathroom, staff is very friendly, Wifi and free laundry machine are available and the location is perfect (close to shops and restaurants). It was very comfortable and I felt like home. I had a room for my own for the price I could elsewhere only get a room with 6 or 8 beds.

    Beautiful building, helpful staff, great location--you can walk to anything you need! The large high ceiling rooms make noise a bit of an issue, but otherwise, this place is great.

    A really nice spacious room in a good location. If you are looking for hostel type experience e.g. atmosphere this isn't for you. Was perfect for what we wanted a nice room in central Montreal for not too much money

    Great location, affordable and quiet. However, we left a day early due to the excruciating heat in our room. No AC in the middle of a heat wave is a health concern and our fan was not cutting it. The bed was also very uncomfortable -if you are older or pregnant like me just fork out the extra cash and stay at a hotel or a hostel with AC. This place is bare bones but also barely a hostel if they can't afford to give out extra fans or pillows to most people, luckily I was accommodated.

    Not normally the sort of place we stay at as a middle aged couple but we were arriving in town late and just wanted a place to crash without paying the earth. This fit the bill. It was close to local shops, bars and restaurants. plus metro and bus stops. Amenities wise it was basic but this is a hostel at the end of the day.
