This is a great place to stay whilst visiting Montreal. It is in a convenient location to the central bus station and close to a Metro line. There is a large area which incorporates the reception, dining room and kitchen. You can’t BYO into the communal area but the beers are fairly cheap, two for $6 for a local brew. The hostel isn’t a party hostel so you are pretty much guaranteed a good night’s sleep. If you do want to party, head to the sister hostel – M Montreal.
Itchy Feet Escapades rates the Montreal Central Hostel 5 out of 5 Itchy Feet.
