8/10 Very Good

Great place to stay on a budget
I love everything about this place. The staff are so friendly and there is everything you need on site. The only comment I'd make (not a complaint) is that I arrived close to 1 AM, and I would have really appreciated having access to a towel on arrival. After 12+ hours of travel, I just wanted to have a little wash before bed.

10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic clean inn in an old building. Rooms upgraded with new air conditioning. Breakfast included. Note however that there is no elevator so handicapped people will have a hard time. Toiletries are not provided. Room 210 where we stayed does not have enough hot water pressure in the shower. Cold water pressure is enormous. So unless the water is opened only a trickle, only a cold water shower can be taken.

4/10 Fair

There were no private bathrooms or showers. This was an expensive youth hostel, not a hotel. A lovely place, but people need to be aware that it is NOT a hotel. Parking is HORRIBLE in Montreal, so stay here only if you are car-free.

8/10 Very Good

Decent experience with kind staff
Service is excellent, everybody involved was very kind and helpful (in both languages!), and there was a good variety for breakfast. They give you a towel; shampoo and soap are extra. The lockers in each room are quite small, for valuables only. I didn't get a fantastic night's sleep, though this was to be expected. Lights-out at 11 pm is a bit jarring: that's when the patio closes, as well as the kitchen/lounge on the 1st floor. The only common space left is a couple of chairs on the 2nd floor, so it's difficult to get any work done at the end of the day.
