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.

However, once you get inside, the architecture is very impressive. I have never seen anything as elaborate. Following on, we decided to meet up with the rest of the tour group for a couple of games of Laser Tag. It was a really fun evening and I was particularly happy with placing third overall in each game (competitive much!). Next stop, ...

Because the museum has underground elements, when we climbed back upstairs we were in a ground-level building across the street from where we had entered the museum.

We had walked around for at least 2 hours and were ready to get back outside and see more sights, so I went back to get my coat from the ...

Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec and the second largest in Canada. It was originally called Ville Marie, the City of Mary. It was founded by French colonists in 1642, although there is archeological evidence that the First Nations people occupied the area over 4000 years ago. It now takes its name ...
Nothing much to say, just that I'll leave from home on Saturday morning and I will stay tyhe night in Trois-Rivières at a couch-surfer's place. 150km to do, mainly flat, a bit of wind in the back, so it should go fine.
To be confirmed Saturday evening!
... by night; and was blown away by the Beat Nation exhibition at the Musee d'art Contemporain - where aboriginal art meets hip hop/street culture. Montreal has so much to offer and this was in the dead season (as was apologetically explained to me by many a Montrealer) in the summer months the city plays host to an internationally renowned Jazz festival, a world fireworks competition, and much more besides. Perfect excuse for a return visit I say :D
