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.

Le Gte du Parc Lafontaine
"Time of our lives - Myself and two friends stayed here for New Years Eve. We had an UNBELIEVABLE time, enjoying the clean and very safe hostel. The other guests were amazing, we came downstairs to drinking games and bonding and ended up going out all night with a group of ten other guests from around the world. It's possible that we were there during a very social time anyway, but the social life was wonderful. It was quiet at night, nice and...
L'Auberge Chez Jean
"L'Auberge Chez Jean is a hostel made up of a few rooms in an apartment building. It's a friendly, social place, and it really is more like staying in a (crowded) apartment than a hostel. The Location It's a five minute walk from the Sherbrooke subway station which will take you pretty much anywhere in the city, and it's a short walk from many restaurants and markets. China town and the Latin quarter are about a fifteen minute walk...

Location This hostel turns out to be in a pretty strategic location, located right on the corner of Hotel de ville Street and Sherbrooke -- it's just minutes...
Appartement Qualitas Hostel
"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...
"If you are looking for a laid-back hostel in a big city like Montreal then Alexandrie Hostel is a good place to stay. It´s a fairly old building which looks a bit shabby from the outside and sleeps about fifty people. The Location The hostel is situated on the junction of Rue Amherst and Rue Robin in a poorer, gay area from Montreal. So if you are a guy and walk in alone at night time you may get some breathed kisses. To walk to...

"The Best Hostel/Hotel in Montreal - I was more impressed staying at Montreal Centrale than I ever thought I would be. The atmosphere, cleanliness, staff, amenities, location and price were all a complete five star package. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Montreal. I also enjoyed the people that stayed at the hostel. It was fun learning about new places, languages and cultures. I thought that sharing an 8 bed co-ed room...
"Old and dirty - Great location, but that was the only good thing about it. The entire place is old and grimy, and looks like a construction site. Online they claim to have much longer front desk hours than they really do, and when I called the number posted on the (closed when it should be open) front desk, the reply was rude. I will not be back, and I don't recommend it." … "Best experience - The place was very clean, just like in the...

"Good overall, a bit of a party atmosphere - Easy to get to from the airport, limited breakfast, pretty good beds and lockers, good bathrooms, very noisy on the weekend (probably more because of being in Montreal than anything else), quieter during the weekend. Friendly staff, though they don't have that many recommendations about the city itself (places to visit, things to do, places to eat). Near a grocery store." … "Nice! - A nice...

"Never Book Here - Let me start by saying, I have never ever given a bad review. I am the most easy going, low maintenance person and I would never want to hurt someone's business by giving a bad review but this place was absolutely unacceptable, so I will share my experience, Or lack of one I should say.

"Le Sous-bois is a fair hostel if you're looking to spend little but still live in a clean place with working showers, toilets, and sinks.

"Beware of bedbugs - Even though the staff was fine, and the price was reasonable for a dorm room, I got bitten by bedbugs the one night that I stayed in dorm room L (4 person dorm) on Oct 2012. I have come across bedbugs in Cambodia in the past, but this was my first Canadian BB experience. I would ask the management to please tackle the problem with a professional bedbug specialist (they are very hard to get rid of)." … "… a...

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.
