Montreal Hostel

Hostel Montreal

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI Montreal is centrally located in downtown Montreal, close to Ste-Catherine and Crescent streets, right next to Concordia University, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Bell Centre and the shopping district of Montreal.

The Montréal hostel offers shared and private rooms, each with their own private bathroom, a cafe-bar where you can enjoy breakfasts, dinners or a drink with other travellers, a fully-equipped kitchen that provides basic ingredients (help yourself, but leave some stuff behind for the others!), and free Wi-Fi.

HI Montreal makes a great base for exploring the vibrant, laid-back charms of Montreal. The hostel also organises free daily activities including bike tours, urban walks and pub crawls so you can get a real feel of the city.

The overall experience was very good. However the dinning hall and bar can be improved a bit. There can be more permanancy in staff, better discipline in the bar, more variety in drinks and food.

Gut: Vorschläge vom Personal für Aktivitäten, Angebot von gemeinsamen Aktivitäten, reichhaltiges Frühstück Verbessern: Angabe der Preise im deutschen Buchungssystem stimmten nicht mit den Preisen bei der Jugendherberge überein, ferner fehlte in der Buchungsbestätigung der Hinweis auf lokale Steuern
