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.

Not a good place to meet people at least when I was there. Common area is fairly cute and had a well stocked kitchen. Rooms were nice enough and bathrooms were nice and not communal. Would stay again because location is 10/10

Great hostel! Very clean, well equipped kitchen, and friendly staff. They even have you take off your shoes at the main entrance, which I loved as it’s winter and the floors can get muddy easily. My only complaint is that there were only 2 showers for the whole place, it wasn’t too much of an issue when I was there but still can be inconvenient during the morning. Amazing restaurants located around the hostel and I felt safe walking at night as a solo woman. Couldn’t pick a better location!
