This is the best place to stay to explore the historic neighbourhood of Quebec City. It is extremely well located, no need to take transit, you stay right in the heart of Vieux-Québec. The hostel is very clean and the staff extremely nice. I recommend the 2 hours city tour. Our guide walked us through the old city, culture, history, and food. I stayed 3 nights in a share room and met up with other visitors. Highly recommend this hostel! Merci !!

The place is extremely well located inside the walls of the old city, just in the middle of two streets taking you to the Chateau Frontenac area, you have all kinds of services and touristic sites around. I had a private room which was big and simple but well decorated, the bathroom was also good sized and the the furniture were a mixed of con temporal and old style. I was surprised beyond my original expectations.

Review from my third stay - first in a shared room (mixed) - then two stays in a private (I'm a loner). Obviously with shared accomodations, you got to put with other's bed- or waking-up -times. But that's when some great talks get going. I love the communal spaces. If you can look away from your phone, there's always someone interesting to talk to at the bar. Ir's downstairs. HIghly recommend! You are in the heart of Quebec.Much to discover outside from the usual tourist traps, ask around the locals...

Thanks so much for your review. You seem to have captured the essence of what it is to stay here: the location couldn't be better, right in the heart of the old city; people are here to meet other people and share their stories and adventures. As you mentioned, we have a varitey of accomodation to offer from the large dormitories to the private rooms with their own bathrooms. This is a great place to go as a family or go solo. Plus, there is always something going on, as we offer free activities daily. Hope to see you again soon!

Fantastic hostel right in the heart of old Quebec, an easy walk from various attractions and the train station. Everything was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was much more than we expected. Would definitely stay here again!

I only stayed here for one night and I wish I could have extended my stay! I booked a private room with en-suite and it was amazing. The room took a while to find but once I did I was very happy with the room. It was massive and had a huge comfy bed. There was a fan to cool the room down and lots of room to do washing. Everything was nice and clean. Lots of nice detail in the room. The staff were very helpful and informative. Will definitely stay here again when I come back to Quebec!

Hello and thank you for your review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your brief stay at the Auberge. When you come back make sure it is for longer! The Auberge is perfectly located in the historic part of the city and within walking distance of many of the attractions. After your day walking up and down the hills of the city we also have a lovely bar with local craft beer where you can put your feet up .

I stayed here for a total of seven nights before and after my photography tour with SalvaFauna. The first two nights was in single room with shared bathroom and the other five nights was in a family room with attached bathroom. The beds are comfortable but the location is really fantastic. The reception is very knowledgeable and pointed me to many nice restaurants and showed me how to get around. It near to many sites like place d'Armes, funicular, the many churches etc. The Fortifications is just a a three minute walk where you get a good different view of the city. The breakfast is standard fare. You can cook yourself if you want. It is a hostel and you get to meet travellers from all over the world. The WiFi in the family room is poor. The other areas are okay. Ask the

Clean. Safe. Cheap. Quiet. 5-20 minute walk to shopping, cafes and many attractions. Recommended for those who have good mobility, ( it is located on a steep hill and there are lots of stairs), and don't mind "roughing" it a little bit - think camp or university residence. Nice people and well run. Bring a washcloth and soap for the shower as well as a padlock. Incredible value for the price.

Staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, the rooms have lockers (you need a lock). There are plenty bathrooms and showers, the breakfast was good. The room has fan, but no AC. We didn't close the windows first night and It was quite noisy early (my room was neext to street, but you could close the windows). You can access to the kitchen all day, they have all the facilities. They have activities every day. Also a good point it's that they have a room for storage your backpack if you need. I would definitely stay with them again. Thanks for everything!

The morning walking tour for english was horrible. Go with some other service. The tour to fall is literally bus ride with a 19 years old, with no information about park, history, or bus back. there are other hostels with better guide tour system. I asked have my bed moved to lower bunk because I twisted my ankle (had 3 more night booked). The receptionist said its impossible because there is no bed available and because i didnt use their website to book. They give you such nasty sting about NOT using their website to book. In my room alone (8 bed girls), 3 beds were empty for next 3 nights. The ceiling fan was shaking so bad that we were scared about our safety at night and some of room doors close very VERY loudly, literally will startle you from your sleep. Very clean

Thank you for your review and letting us know what we can improve on. I am glad you found the bathrooms were kept clean and that you enjoyed our common areas. I am sorry to hear that you twisted your ankle and that we were not able to change your bunk location. I have checked with our system and it shows that all the beds were checked in and paid for during your stay so it is strange that there were three empty beds! Of course we would have moved you if possible (we are at near full capacity at the moment)! All our clients are treated equally, no matter how they have booked with us. We use special fire doors that have to close automatically. We ask clients to be respectful of others by closing the doors rather than letting them slam, although unfortuantely not everyone complies with this request. I am sorry to hear about the magnetic key card you had demagnetising. This can happen, often because a card is kept near a cell phone but not allways. We have bought new cards and replace the old ones when needed. We are now looking into buying a completly new system that will eliminate the problem. Wherever you stay, if you think there is something unsafe in your environment, (i.e. an unstable ceiling fan) I recommend that you immediately tell the reception about so that something can be done right away to fix the problem. I will check on the room you stayed in. I am sorry that you didn't like the free guided walking tour. In Quebec city the municipal government obliges all tours to be undertaken by a trained and licensed tour guide only. The training course is at least 6 months long with exams to pass at the end. We have three guides who regularly offer their services with us and they do not charge anything but appreciate tips. Can you please contact me to let me know with whom you took the tour. If there is a problem with their English it should be pointed out. IF you want a different tour experience there are many companies offering tour guiding services. These can range from free (although you are likely to be in a large group) to $175 for a private personaized tour. Tours Voir are highly recommended The ride to the falls is done using local transportation and with one of our volunteers leading the group to buy their bus tickets and show the way. It is not meant to be a historical tour (although I have asked the volunteers to do some background research) but more a way for clients to get together, navigate the local transportation system and be shown the different paths and routes in the park.

Room 218 had bunk beds built for children I couldn’t believe it when I seen it. Rooms small and stuffy. Heat at night was unbearable I had to get up several times for a cold shower as I felt so sick. Getting up and down from the top bunk requires acrobatics due to the high bars. However these are necessary as the beds are so small you will fall out. Severe lack of communication from staff on check in, no orientation around the hostel or told about any activities or the area. All staff were nice on other occasions. Room card stops working all the time which is inconvenient as you might nip to the toilet then have no access to your room. Good points are that there is a reading light at the bed as well as power outlets nearby and lockers to keep your things. Fresh clean towel every

Hello and thank you for your review. I am happy to see that you found the location of the hostel to be really well placed and that other than check-in, the staff were nice. I will speak to the reception about the lack of information they gave you at check-in as they are usually very thorough and helpful. There is a lot of information on the things going on, with suggestions from the team about things to do, see and recommendations for places to eat. These are all displayed in the front lobby. There is also a wall with the different activities we provide for the week with sign-up sheets underneath. When you were here we were having a humid heat-wave so I am sorry to hear that you were badly affected by it. All the rooms have ceiling fans and we also have portable fans in the rooms and on demand. Some of the bunk beds are smaller than others and we are planning on replacing them soon, once we have found a sturdy and comfortable replacement.
