We stayed at the hostel for 3 nights recently. I checked the reviews here and made the decisions. But I don’t understand why most of the reviews are good. These are the pros and cons in my opinion:
1. Good location – short walk...More

Bonjour and thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback online. I apologize for the confusion with your reservation and I understand that it must have been quite annoying. We actually do allocate the rooms and beds at the time of booking to prevent...More
Booked for 1 night at this place for my visit in Montreal. It seems they had some renovation going on (on the outside only). The staff were friendly but however I was disappointed when I went in and they told me that there was an...More

Bonjour ! Thanks for taking the time to leave your review online.
We do try to be as transparent as possible regarding our pricing policy though it is sometimes difficult depending on the online travel agency.
That being said, it is our responsability to be...More
Disappointing location. For travellers hoping not to be in your typical downtown construction zone with not many sights around, this hostel is not for you. The hostel itself was just simple, not impressive and needs some sprucing up. Less than average bar. Pillows were terrible....More

Bonjour and thanks for taking the time to leave your review online… Obviously, we did not manage to be that blast we promise to be for all travelers coming to stay with us… My apologies for it! I suppose we should have done a better...More
Good hostel. The location was quite good, very close to downtown, walking distance to shops and quite a few nice bars and restaurants. After arriving at the train station, it's easy to get a bus down to hostel but I walked and it only took...More

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.

There are steps up to the entrance, and then only stairs up to the rooms and down to the kitchen and dining area as far as I recall, so probably not wheelchair accessible. But I would suggest contacting the hostel directly... More
There are steps up to the entrance, and then only stairs up to the rooms and down to the kitchen and dining area as far as I recall, so probably not wheelchair accessible. But I would suggest contacting the hostel directly, I may not have noticed how they accommodate wheelchair access. Good luck and hope you can find suitable accommodation - Canada is generally quite accessible.

I wish I could help more in this situation. My group arrived in a large truck and parked it on the street in front of the building. We did have to pay for street parking. As far as a parking structure, I didn't see any near by, we walked a lot in that general area, but didn't see anything to change our mind about our parking location. Have fun! The bar / common area down stairs was a great time.
