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.

I flew out of Ottawa at 6:15pm for an excruciatingly long (26 min) flight to Montreal. My trip through security was painless, aside from one man ahead who was not happy about being searched. Once we were able to board the plane I found out that my aisle seat was not what I expected. On the De Havilland Dash 8-100 there are 8 rows of two and two, and I was in a row of 5 at the back. Basically it's a flying city bus.
We headed back to the big city after a great breakfast. We were back in Montreal just in time for lunch and then it was time to do some serious shopping. Let me warn you this is not for the faint hearted. This is for serious shoppers! 30 kilometres of passageways, under ground linked to all of the Metro stations. This is a real Underground City. 1600 boutiques, 200 restaurants, 34 cinemas, 40 banks, 2 major department stores as well as 1600 ...
... two in fact, completely frozen over making perfect ice rinks. These were much bigger than the lakes in Toronto or at the Old Port, and much cheaper, we also felt padded trousers the best attire to remember how to skate in so gave it a go.
Mathew of course, was fantastic, within minutes was going far too fast, was eventually doing jumps and turns and standing on one leg, ...
Maybe...the upwards and onwards bit, that is.... After picking up my luggage, I once again walked to the subway and got off at 61st street to catch the Q70 bus connection to La Guardia. I was waiting alone at a bus stop that was growing colder by the minute, thick fog was rolling in, and wondering why the bus wasn't turning up sooner. There was scheduled to be one every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day. I was really beginning to wish I'd gone all the way to 74th street, which it ...
... a "get stupid" kind of way, but with the recognition that there are so many things I like and want to do - #YOLO!
Hence, in a couple of hours, I'll be off to YUL to begin a journey unlike any others I've been on.
I wanted to switch up the usual all-inclusive routine and see what else the world has to offer. Hence, I'm heading to Europe for the first time in 13 years, with very little ...
