An emotional departure from Gatwick as the long-awaited reality of what I was about to embark on suddenly hit me! But I'm pleased to report no tears on either end of the Mum:Son goodbye phone call - despite Frankie & Benny's doing their best with music choice (Every time we say goodbye, Crying, and various other tunes that I could have done …
... doesn't fit with the rest of the place. There is a giant bronze sculpture at the end of the aisle that was too modern for the building and, frankly, not my taste. Maybe you'll enjoy it more than I (see photo gallery).

As expected I woke to a nice hangover which meant that once again I wasn't going to be doing much today. However housework called so we had some stuff to do around the place.

After a beautiful night's sleep on some huge thread count sheets and a pillow that felt like a cloud, my alarm went off at 7am - it was dark. Something else I forgot to mention about the bathroom.

TravelPod Member ReviewsA Montreal Oasis
This is how to hostelling. Beautifully renovated former hotel which provides dorms and private rooms of various sizes, all of which have their own en-suite bathrooms. Modern, clean and contemporary, staff are friendly and very helpful.
In the basement is a gorgeous cellar bar where breakfast is served in the mornings and most evenings is host to variety of entertainment acts.
The free WiFi is strong throughout the entire hostel which makes life much easier.
Finally the location is perfect - just a few minutes walk from the airport bus terminus, the metro station, and the bars and restaurants of the village.
I would definitely stay again if in Montreal.
