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.

Very Good
Nov 13, 2022
I was assigned to the second floor of a bunk bed which contained three floors in total in a dorm of nine people. The distance between my floor and the upper floor was too short for me to sit straightly. I felt so uncomfortable for that. Besides, the light was out automatically while I was taking shower but I could not get out for turning it on. One good thing is the location is perfect as it is located at the old port.

Had a lovely stay here! The location is excellent- right in old Montréal, close to many cafes and tourist attractions, and only a short walk to the metro/bus stops. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the place- have no complaints. The kitchen was well stocked and lacking nothing, and the staff were always super friendly and helpful. :) 5 stars!

Location fabulous to explore Montreal and common room and kitchen great for meeting other people. Bunk rooms were basic and not a lot of room for 'stuff' but was manageable and shower rooms simple but clean Worth mentioning everyone speaks French and whilst that is probably obvious being in Montreal I felt a bit isolated as my French is limited (reception and staff bilingual)
