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 …
... he received special 'clearance' from the security manager to be in bare feet although this didn't stop every security guard questioning him throughout the gallery. It will go down as a major incident at the gallery!

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.
