Location was good, took me a while to find this place but it was really a good and cosy. This hostel is a great choice if you are staying in Montreal for a short trip. Toilet is really clean. Standard breakfast of cereals, bread and milk provided. Good and easy to start your day off. The wifi is pretty fast...

We walked right past the entrance to this hostel, as it is tucked away. You have to take your shoes off, which I like personally as it makes it feel like a home. I was in a female dorm and it was clean and comfortable, with secure lockers. The kitchen and living room were clean and welcoming. Only stayed one...

Amazing location (keep a clear eye out for the door though, it shares an entrance with the restaurant beside it), perfect bedrooms, a good number of bathrooms, has a sitting room, kitchen, and laundry facilities! I accidentally arrived late, after the check-in time, but they still had prepared everything for me and had a cool self-check-in system, they thought of...

This hostel is basic, but good. There is a common room, and a kitchen. The breakfast is simple, but free, and includes everything you would need. I stayed here in the winter, probably not the most popular time but it was quiet in the hostel. It is located in the back of a Chinese restaurant which is a little odd...

Clean Hostel. Basic but good. Close to the subway and a short ride from downtown. next door to Concordia U and a few blocks from the art museum and Mont Royal. All around a well run hostel, a good value, and a good experience.

Met interesting people of all ages and different countries. Bed rooms, bathrooms kitchen and common spaces are kept clean. The stairs connecting the three levels are narrow and steep; and there isn't an elevator. I liked the "small" size of hostel; which made it feel very "homey".

Situated in the core of the city you'll find plenty of activities and also charming people to visit the city with. The breakfast is good and you can find some supermarkets quite near to fill the fridge. The kitchen will make you fill like home. Everything is very clean and ready for you to enjoy a short or longer holiday.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Auberge Apéro, a European-style hostel in North America’s most European city, Montréal. Apéro is the French word for aperitif – the beginning of a great meal or in this case – a great vacation. With only 12 beds, we offer a cozy, personalized atmosphere on two floors of an old 1880s graystone with all the amenities you expect from a hostel, and many that you don’t. The rooms are bright with hardwood floors and some interior brick walls that add an air of coziness to the Auberge. The second floor contains the reception area, the store, common rooms, and the laundry. ... more   less

“Rooms must be clean, with no cockroaches or rats. Sometimes you've to experience it for yourself because I found that even with Trip Advisor's approval in one of the hostels close to Berri Uquam there were rats running around every morning. I complained, but no action was taken. I stayed for more than 3 weeks in Auberg L'Apero and found it very satisfactory.”
