AVOID THIS "hostel". It's nightmare. Be prepared to pay 15-20 $ more than the "advertised price because of "key fees" and "taxes". The staff are rude/unfriendly 2) The rooms ARE AWFUL. THEY SMELL LIKE A COMBINATION OF STALE TOBACCO, MARIJUANA, and BODY ODOR. Poorly painted, hot, musty, and there is no attempt at upkeep. The showers and bathrooms were disgusting...

I stayed here over the F1 weekend, basically because I couldn't find anywhere else to stay. Before I arrived I was a little worried based on the other reviews here, however it was not as bad as it's been portrayed. If you want somewhere with a bed & a shower for a reasonable price, then go for it. I stayed...

Go to Hotel La Residence Voyageur instead - a world of difference for just a few extra dollars per night - amazing service and very clean dwelling. Unsanitary and poor value; Terrible management: I have stayed at Hotel Eureka 3 times in the past because of it's low price, with mixed feelings. But, after my most recent trip to Montreal...

Absolutely the worst dump I've ever stayed in, and that includes hotels and hostels in dozens of countries on five continents. Even a $2 per night hostel in Malaysia was better. Much better. I paid for a week and left after three days, don't know how I lasted that long. The heater worked the first night (in January) but not...

I booked this "hotel" at the last minute for New Year's weekend. I was aware that it didn't get the best reviews, but I was cautiously optimistic. Anyway, it did meet my expectations. The only positive thing I can say about Hotel Eureka is the location: it is close to the bus stop, to metro stops, Gay Village /St. Catherine...

This hotel is located a short 5 minute walk from St. Catherine St which is the heart of downtown. Other hotels on the street go from $100-500 a night so this little hotel is a steal for $50 a night. The room is decent as in it's clean and has a big bed, shower, sink, tv and night stand. Your...

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighbourhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomised by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
