Montreal Botanical Garden
Extremely helpful staff and a very attractive interior
Parking free and was near to town facilities/attractions No tea/coffee facilities provided. Area poor/seedy. Hotel not really up to standard for price.
This hostel was, at one point, a hotel -- the rooms still have their own bathroom and climate control which is fantastic! Super clean and inviting lobby. I didn't partake in the free breakfast, but it looked good.. sadly, not a good diet for diabetics. Bunkbeds. There's no getting around it in a hostel, but bunkbeds really suck for older people and for getting a good night's sleep. There should be a better way... In this hostel, the beds were somewhat new, but screws were missing from the upper berth making me fear that the top bed would collapse on me in my sleep.
The staff were very helpful within reason. It is extremely well located next to the bus terminal for provincial ++ destinations plus Dorval (PET) airport and the subway system as well as a reasonably good nightlife area with a variety of bars and restaurants at good rates servicing the University students in the area. The hotel has two free internet points in the lobby using up to date portables. Many people seem to bring their own laptops but it is still very useful for those who don't travel wired. The breakfast was bare bones to the minimum. The hotel room's electrical accessories were old and missing pieces like TV channel changers. The hotel is stuck between being a hostel and a hotel and the room price seems at odds with some of the services (see breakfast above) and its clientel (many European and other nationality "student travelers".
The location is great! In the centre of Montreal and near to most tourist attractions. You don't even needed a car if you stay hear. Rooms were in good conditions. For the price you pay I think they're more than excellent. This is a resident for college students and the beds were not confortable. I don't think my back would had standed it any longer.
the location was very convenient for shopping and access to the "Just for laughs' festival. no air conditioning
