Hostelz.com's Review
HI - Quebec - Auberge Internationale de Québec Hostel has an amazing atmosphere and is upbeat. The staff here are really cool; all of them speak English and French, which is helpful, and they are full of information on places to see and go.

The Location

Located right in the center of the action in downtown, Quebec City, this hostel has an amazing location! You are within walking distance of all major attractions that you would want to see while you are here, including the Citadelle and the Chateau Frontenac. There are an abundance of restaurants within the area lining the stone cobbled streets, and also and you can find grocery stores just a short walk away too. It is located within the old walls of the city, so it is among more of the older-style buildings and cobble-stoned streets that Quebec City is renowned for.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms at the hostel are cosy and spacious. They have good quality mattresses and linen which make sleeping comfortable. There are lockers for storage of your valuables provided that you supply your own lock. Bathrooms are clean and equipped with one shower and toilet per each bathroom of which there are many on each floor, so waiting is not often a problem. They are all modern facilities and very nice.

Common Spaces

The hostel consists of a large lobby area with an abundance of information on things to see and do. There are sign-up sheets for activities if you want to get involved. They have a computer room if you haven't got access to technology that allows you to use the free Wi-Fi. They also have a large library, from which you can exchange or borrow books. Downstairs is equipped with a large kitchen, with an abundance of stoves to cook on and they all work! There is a large dining area where you can eat and be social and next to that they have a bar for the hostel where you can also catch a drink or two with fellow hostelers.

Summary

We would most definitely recommend staying here! The location, the friendly staff, the clean and funky environment make it the perfect place to stay when visiting Quebec City!

4   Good The hostel is in a prime location and the staff are great. The room was also very clean. My only complaint would be that the showers aren't set up very well. There's not really anywhere to put your stuff and the floor was usually flooded.  , age 23, USA ()
5   Clean, spacious, friendly staff The hostel facilities were very clean. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm which was very spacious. Hostel staff was very friendly and helpful.  , age 21, Australia ()
5   Great location, friendly staff, excellent value HI Quebec is located in the heart of old Quebec, which made it convenient to walk everywhere. If I ever come back to this beautiful city, I'll stay here again! Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a hostel with good location and service and don't want to spend too much for their stay.  , USA ()
5   When I visit Quebec again, I'll come back to this hostel I think at the end the most important are the people. I'm traveling alone for ten months. The staff and my roommates are so welcoming and hospitable. I felt like family right away. Even the mundane things like playing bingo were memorable experiences. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to enjoy the city with likeminded travelers and locals alike. Special thanks to the best staff ever -- christian, elli, belen, julien, and more!  , Switzerland ()
5   Clean and Professional Very well managed and clean hostel. The staff were all very helpful. I was impressed with the free earplugs since I was put into a room with two loud snorers. The location is perfect. Because the place is run so well, you won't only find backpackers but also families. The best time to meet people, besides your own room, is during breakfast when the dining area fills to capacity. Breakfast is not free, however. Parking passes can be purchased at the hostel for $14 per day, giving you access to the city's underground parking lot close by. If you don't purchase through them, it'll cost you more.  , US ()
5   History comes alive in the heart of the old city! This is one of the best hostels i've ever stayed in! Great location (close to transportation, to train and bus stations, and close to all of the main attractions!). Hostel is clean and spacious. Great self help kitchen and good breakfast. One of canada's best hostels for sure.  , Canada ()
4   Ok, not great Twelve years ago i had laptop stolen at this hostel, so was a bit weary of staying here again. got private room, as was busy weekend and short notice, so very attractive room, reminded me of many historic hotels in paris. however, i experienced BedBugs, and wasn't at all happy, though the reception dealt with very professionally and thoroughly. however the next day i asked for refund, as i only got a few hours sleep even though they had moved me to a room that was vacant. didn't get a very positive response. and felt i really had to push for it, or even call up my credit card company to request stop payment. i don't believe that i should have to push so hard, after having suffered such an awful night, never mind the following day still getting over the itchiness and drowsy, which pretty much ruined most of the next day -- and half of the weekend!  , australia/usa ()
5   Excellent price, service, and location! Best hostel I've ever stayed at! It was right in the middle of everything and the staff was super friendly -- and made some good recommendations as to what to see. Overall a great place to stay!  , ON, Canada ()
