A different kind of hostel, where travelers have been contributing creatively by making furniture from recycled materials. It is located in the old part of Montreal, near major attractions and very well connected by metro. The rooms are not very big, but nicely decorated. If you travel without a laptop, iPad, etc., you can us the internet for free for 20 minutes. There is also free WiFi.
The Auberge & Hotel Montreal Espace Confort is located in the heart of Montreal's Latin Quarter, so it's very well-located for trips on foot to different central areas (Chinatown, Old Montreal, Vieux Port, etc.), as well as to more distant destinations outside the city center. It's located right next to the subway and just a 3 minutes' walk from the bus heading for the airport. For the rest, it is a very pleasant hotel with a cozy, charming style of decor. The staff are very nice and friendly, always willing to help us. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in downtown Montreal!
