Centrally-located hostel, a very laid-back facility, offers the right mix of comfort and convenience at a very competitive price. Dorms are set in large, double-room, furnished suites giving access to 3 shared bathrooms and 1 shower.

In addition, the living room floor was recently renovated and the kitchen is fully furnished. Onsite, and for your convenience, is a dishwasher and a laundry room. Our lockers are super-big and they lock. We are near some amazing parks and sports facilities (Centre Robillard & Jarry Park).

Even though such treats as the glass-protected Plaza Saint-Hubert, swimming pools and Little Italy are close by, you could walk across the street and hop on the swift, rubber-tired subway or avail yourself of the efficient network of busses that can dip to the ground to assist the handicapped. Optionally, our local guide offers a whirlwind tour (by private car) of Montreals landmarks and little known, hidden treasures. While youre getting your bearings, hell even brief you on how to best use the transit system. Once again, our major asset is our central location. Whether a tourist, looking for new sights, an apartment-hunting student, or new in town, searching for employment, you can travel to almost anywhere within 15 to 20 minutes.

We supply (free of charge) a broad variety of tourist maps & brochures and encourage you to explore! At the very least, rest assured that our cast of characters will keep you laughing, entertained, and well informed throughout the course of your stay, whether it be a day, or a month.

By SUBWAY from the BUS Terminal...

Take the orange line to Jean-Talon and exit St-Denis Street.
Walk about 400 feet and you are home.


Call us at (five-one-four-eight-six-five-eight-seven-three-zero) upon arrival and request private shuttle service. The cost is 21$ taxes included and allow 30 minutes for a pick-up. This saves you 14$ off the cost of a taxi and the trip back to teh hostel is less than 20 minutes.
  TransportationPlease considertaking advantage of our Express Shuttle pick-up from the Airport, Bus Terminal or Train Station to our hostel. This is a very economical and intelligent method of finding your way, to us, as it saves you time and money, and you get here in comfort. Our shuttle features onboard movies or TV, good radio and a fine view of the passing scenery. The estimated travel time from the airport is under 20 minutes, but can be up to 45 minutes with traffic.
Our direct shuttle to the airport costs only $20.00, each way, or $34.95, round trip, and we pick you up directly at the airport. Special rates apply for the bus terminal or the train, starting from $10. In order to successfully time our arrival with your exit, from the terminal, it would help for us to have your travel details such as flight/bus/train information and to exchange contact numbers, etc. That is why I am mentioning this before your departure.
Your other travel solution alternatives, spiced with my advice, are:
Taking a taxi, for a $35 flat fee, one way, to our location, however, the driver almost always expects tips and more for handling your luggagml;¿½ï¿½ve witnessed a few visitors having to pay $55-$6e. We've in some suspicious cases, so have a clear understanding with the driver before you decide to ride in his cab.
A more popular solution is to take the airport shuttle bus, for $15, which drops you off at the Berri-UQAM subway station but, from there, you must tote your luggage and take the subway which costs you another $2.75.
The least popular, but, by far, the most economical solution is to take the city bus which, if you have exact change, costs $2.75 but, it has been reported to take over 2 hours to get downtown and I don�t know how to advise you with the bus routing. Just to be fair, about your available options, I am providing you with the link to get more information on public transit. .
If you require additional information or assistance, or have a need or concern, prior to your arrival, please e-mail me.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon, we wish you happy travel and a safe journey.
