Auberge Jeunesse La Merluche



The Review

La Merluche was started in 2012 by a well traveled and very friendly couple who converted their home into a hostel for travelers. The house itself is beautiful and it has an amazing, homey feel to it that you don't find with many hostels. The couple are very welcoming and helpful with anything that you may need during your stay, including company and conversation.

The Location

La Merluche is located in the perfect spot in downtown Gaspe. It is close to the water, a five-minute walk down the street from any banks, supermarkets, and other amenities that you might need as well as the cafes and other attractions. It is pretty much right down the road from the main strip.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are very clean and tidy. The beds are incredibly comfortable, with clean and fluffy linen. There are four beds per dorm room. There is the option of having a single bed or a double bed in the dorms, with two people in the double bed in the dorm as an option. They have private rooms available as well. The bathroom on the main floor is modern, immaculately clean, and really very nice; the shower is amazing. There are also extra toilets and showers in the downstairs area that are great also if the one on the main floor is in use.

Common Spaces

The common spaces in the house include the large, open kitchen, which is well equipped with any kind of cooking utensil that you may need and an oven. It also has tables where people can sit around and have discussions and eat meals together. There is a den downstairs with a couch, television, and some old-school video games to play, as well as board games for entertainment. During the summer months, you can also sit outside on the porch and chill out or do breakfast on the outdoor dining set overlooking the water. They have laundry available for a fee but the price includes laundry powder as well. There is Wi-Fi internet available at the hostel too.


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to anyone taking a trip to Gaspe. It was just what we needed to chill out, relax, have an amazing night's rest and enjoy some good company before continuing on our journey.
