Montreal, French Canada's largest city, is a popular tourist destination and understandably so, since on top of having pleasant neighborhoods, this is the only major French-speaking city in the United States and Canada. The local culture is certainly unique, since the city has evolved under Canadian influence while maintaining its French roots and international connections. The city certainly has a French flair, also culturally, although aesthetically the city is largely Canadian with wide streets and sprawling suburbs. Nonetheless there are certain perks in town that are more common in European cities of a similar size, like the excellent Metro subway system, which you can use to access your Montreal hostel. The local language isn't a huge challenge for visitors, as most locals speak at least conversational English as well as French, though French-speaking people from the rest of the world may have some issues understanding the stronger accents among locals.
As far as hostels in Montreal go, it fair to say that the city is somewhat a mix of the common hostel scenes in Europe and North America. That means that the Montreal hostels tend to be well kept and not attract as many transient people as many other hostels in Canada and the US. Also there is an above-average number of hostels in town, making it easy to find a bed. Nonetheless, you'll want to book ahead during major festivals, as there are many, many people looking for somewhere to stay at these times. The metro is excellent and has wide coverage of the city, so you'll probably want to stay near it. Driving in Montreal isn't hard either, but parking can be challenging and expensive. Most bicyclists will be content with the facilities here, and happy that drivers are used to and aware of bikes.

"Do not stay here! It really is not a deal over the other hostels in any way. I have stayed in a number of hostels and this is the second worst hostel in which I have ever stayed. The location is terrible -- the street does not feel safe. When we pulled up to the hostel there were no outside signs indicating that it was anything more than some dude's (named Yves) apartment. We started out by discovering that he gave our room away to someone...

Montreal Travel Tips & Suggestions
I'm from Montreal so I don't have any good tips about specific hostels, but I do recommend staying in the Plateau or the Quartier Latin. The areas are much more fun and atmospheric than the western parts of downtown, and there's so much to do, especially in summertime! Be sure to check out our many world-famous festivals including the Jazz Fest, the Comedy Fest, the Film Fest, and more. For scrumptious hot chocolate and sinful desserts, check out a little spot on St-Denis called Juliette et Chocolat. Oh, and be sure to visit Les Deux Pierrots in Old Montreal if you want an authentic Quebecois music night, complete with singalongs.
Montreal is such a nice city! There are tons of things to do, you'll never get bored there! Plus people are generally super nice!
— Priscillia, Italy
Montreal is really cool! Really cool bars and old Montreal is really quaint. I'd recommend Montreal and Quebec City, they're much nicer than Toronto!
If you like to party and are in need of a place with a very happening night life then Montreal is the place for you.
This is the best city in Canada. Period. Come as soon as possible.
