Alternative Hostel of Old Montreal Reviews

Sexual harrassment, sorry to say

though i have been sexually harassed by 'the night security' staff on two separate occasions (5 years apart), i still actually like this hostel. the loc, the beautiful kitchen, the free coffee/tea, the basic cleanliness. i don't feel much love for the staff however, as you can imagine. i am not a fashion model or an actress, so why the 'unwanted sexual interest'? the individuals seemed to have emotional, social (and alcohol) issues. also you must understand that this hostel is in a very french (albeit beautiful) neighbourhood. so bring your french dictionary.


Good, Cheap and a lot of FREEs

this hostel is just amazing! FREE coffee & tea, FREE internet (PC & wireless), a lot of FREE food, and a great kitchen with a lot of FREE spices! staff was very friendly and the place is clean. ok the dorm can be a bit noisy, but that was no problem to me. Unbeatable in price: 20$ a night (+2$ once only if you don't have a sleeping bag for sheets). I had a great time and made a lot of friends!

Affordable, great location, friendly, nice common room

i enjoyed the hostel. my sister and i stayed in the rose/pink room -- a girls only dorm which only had six beds and a locking door. I would suggest requesting a dorm room that has a locking door rather than the open type rooms they have. Not that I was worried at all about safety, but having the extra privacy and ease of mind about luggage was great. the common room is well equipped and a cozy spot to hang out.



this place was great. good location so you can get pretty much anywhere you want, especially (of course) all over old montreal, which is at its prettiest a few blocks southeast of here along the water (a great place to see the sunset if youre into that). the breakfast is not free but its GREAT and not expensive. you can cook whenever and people are always doing so (but dont worry about being able to, we never had to wait). the guy at the front desk was really nice. we also stayed in the private "red room," which was great. the color-themed rooms really make it nice. definitely recommend this hostel


I stayed here recently and felt very uncomfortable around the checking-in guy -- he was very pervy and made unwanted advance towards me. I had booked for five nights but only stayed for one. Horrible horrible place, stay anywhere but here.


Twenty beds in a room. awesome. really friendly people and staff. great character -- one big room with kitchen, books, desk, internet. awesome place. slightly different but great. no tv though (missing hockey). one of the better ones on my trip for sure, and in the most spectacular place in montreal.

This place is good, but I don't think its as great as the owners intended when they built it, sorry. "Dimmer lights" aside there are a few annoying features of this place. First, the showers are in the dorm room, which is not good if you shower at night. There are no reading lights, no towel hangers, linen is not included, and they don't allocate lockers to beds so if you are asleep on the bottom bunk you could have someone else opening and closing their locker under your head while you sleep, which is very annoying. I found it hard to sleep in the morning because of the noise. The floor squeaks, the lockers are noisy and the beds shake. Also there is always someone asleep in the dorm all day so you can never feel comfortable in the dorm.

The weirdest thing about this place is that no one talks to each other much. I think maybe it's because people are unsure what language to speak or something. It's very strange.


I rate this hostel as the best in Canada! Clean, friendly, comfortable! I definitely can recommend it to anyone! Plus I liked the free Internet and the all-you-can-eat breakfast.
