The staff that also lives here is kind, friendly and helpful. Local staff advises on tips for getting around. The bar on the site is a downside. Some doors are sticky and tiles need regluing. Bigger storage bins in shared rooms would be great. There...More

Stayed in a two-person dorm and was surprised to get twin beds instead of the usual bunk beds. There were personal lamps on each bed and the main room light's brightness was adjustable. There was also two decent-sized lockers that fit my daypack with a...More

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the

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
