My girlfriend and I have stayed in Alexandrie for the past month and are unfortunately leaving today. We have had a brilliant time here, meeting lots of new people, going out to many places across Montreal with the help of the staff and enjoying the features of the hostel (bikes, air conditioned rooms, terrace, nights out, free laundry, the whole place is very clean). All of this for such an affordable price! The hostel is relatively simple, but I think the best places always are.
The staff have been fantastic during our time here too. We have become great friends with Alex (I think it's impossible not to be friends with him), the man who just never stops partying and having fun. He gives the hostel such a friendly and social vibe as he organises the nights out to local clubs and bars. Kader is the ever present man behind the desk ready to help you with anything you need and Luc is the manager who works tirelessly seemingly all the time to make sure the hostel is in the best condition it can be. There are so many others who make the hostel great too :)
The hostel is in a great place too. It's so close to shops, parks (Mont Royal is about 30-40 minutes walk away) and the metro.
We would definitely come back here.More
