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.

HI - Montreal Youth Hostel
"This hostel is a three-level building that somewhat resembles a budget hotel. The white facade, red awnings, and white/red sign all make it easy to spot, even in the middle of a blizzard. The Location The location is great, just two blocks from Rue Ste Catherine and Rene Levesque, and only 500 metres from a metro station. If you arrive by train, it's walking distance or a $5 cab ride (which is preferable if it's snowing). Rooms and...
Globetrotter Hostel Montreal
"What Globetrotter Hostel Montreal lacks in cleanliness and organisation it makes up for in location, price, and helpful, experienced staff. This place is good for short-term stays, even when you plan to cook for yourself. The Location Globetrotter Hostel is in a prime location. Right on the thriving Avenue du Mont Royal in the Plateau area, it is close to numerous late night eateries, unique and trendy shops, and a central metro...
Auberge de Paris Backpackers Hostel
"It's a hostel that's clean, efficient, quiet (for a hostel) and cheap. It's in a great location, has nice staff, and is open all night so you can come in late after the bars. All in all, it's a very good hostel; one of the most efficient I've stayed at." … "It was fantastic. I loved every second of it." … "I stayed at this hostel two years ago. I really liked the location. I could walk to many cool bars. It is also within...
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...
Le Gîte du Plateau Mont-Royal
"There is a really friendly atmosphere in Le Gîte du Plateau Mont-Royal, this small, bohemian-style hostel. The staff are welcoming, and the place feels homey. There are all sorts of sightseeing information and suggestions scribbled on the notice boards around the reception area. 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...

"Great Hostel - I loved this hostel. Only reason I left was to add some variety to my Montreal visit. Paul the owner is extremely nice, and helpful. Also bilingual. A very comfortable and secure hostel. TV room, free internet. Very secure entrance. Great downtown location. A thirty-second walk from Rue Saint Catherine, a great street to walk down. A nice size. Only three dorm rooms. One for girls and the others mixed, at least during my stay....
"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)." … "…...

Alternative Hostel of Old Montreal
"The best thing about the Alternative Hostel of Old Montreal is the location - but that's also the worst thing about it. As the name suggests, it's located in the heart of old Montreal. Right outside the hostel is a street with a few boutique shops and several nice (but pricey) restaurants, and horse carriages clop by at all hours. The streetfront location makes the hostel noisy at night, mostly from cars going by over the cobbled streets....
La Maison du Patriote
"La Maison du Patriote is one of the best hostels at which we have ever stayed. It has a really nice and homey ambiance so that you immediately feel at home. Alex, who runs the hostel, and his son Steven are incredibly helpful and hospitable -- going above and beyond in many cases. The Location Located right next to Saint Jacques-Cartier Square in the heart of Old Montreal, this hostel is in the perfect spot. It is a short walk of around...
Gîte du Parc Lafontaine Guest House
"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...

Women's Y Hotel
"Situated at the corner of Rene-Levesque and Crescent in downtown Montreal, the greatest selling point of the Women's Y Hotel is its amazing location -- less than a 5-minute walk to the bustling Rue Ste-Catherine and underground shopping malls, Bell Center, and the Metro stop (Lucien L'Allier) and 20-30 minutes to Chinatown or Vieux-Montreal. For solo female travelers, the Y provides a feeling of security with the doors locking by 10 pm;...
Vacances Canada M.D. Youth Hostel
"An all around great value! - I stayed at this particular hostel during the summer of 2007. Granted all you really get is a bed and a hot shower, but isn't that what hosteling is all about? Or was all about? Going from inexpensive place to inexpensive place avoiding all the extra charges for unnecessary luxuries? Right? Well if you don't mind traveling in such a way, I can say that this is a pretty good deal. And if you are going by car like I...
"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. They give out free breakfast each morning and have a refrigerator that can be used by the guests. Breakfast often consisted of little bagels and a variety of toppings (jams, peanut butter, butter). Two computers are located within the eating room and internet use is free. However, as they are free, do not...
"My friend and I picked this hostel blindly off the internet and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We had a smaller group of travelers so we didn't run into problems. Matt was helpful with navigation of the city and ran a laid back hostel. I enjoyed it and would go again." … "I thought that the owner was very nice, but I must say I was disappointed with this hostel. He has noted "free car park;" well really he just shows you on...

Auberge Maeva Montreal
"Auberge Maeva is an excellent place to stay, whether for a couple of nights or for longterm. It's a great place to meet people, as it's quite small with a very friendly atmosphere.

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.
