Auberge L'Apero

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Welcome to Auberge L'Apéro, a European-style hostel in North America's most European city, Montreal. 'Apéro' is the French abbreviation for aperitif - the beginning of a great meal, or in this case - a great vacation.

Located in the heart of downtown, we offer you safe, comfortable accommodations just a heartbeat from the action.

With only 30 beds, we excel at having service and amenities at reasonable prices. Our airy dorms feature comfortable beds, clean linens, and large lockers to keep your belongings safe.

Here, you will find everything you'd expect from a hostel, including the most sought after amenities, like on-site laundry, free Internet access, free self-serve breakfast, free coffee and tea and more. The kitchen is well-appointed and kept clean, and the common room offers a raft of activities.

All this is set on two floors of an old 1880s greystone with interesting architectural features. You won't be bored.

One of the features of our hostel is our beautiful terrace where you can relax and enjoy your continental breakfast in the sunshine, or come back for an apéro at the end of wonderful afternoon of sightseeing before heading out to dinner. Most importantly, there is no curfew so you will be free to explore the city and its famous (and fabulous!) nightlife to your heart's content.

What sets us apart from other hostels is our attention to detail. We treat you as guests, not passers-through, and you will find our personalized service not unlike the service you would find in a hotel.

This isn't just a regular hostel that just happens to be in Montreal - L'Apéro is like Montreal; it reflects the city's vibrant social life and European style. Don't just visit the city; be part of it at Auberge L'Apéro.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I recently spent three nights at the Auberge L'Apero and don't have a bad word to say about it. Upon my arrival, Paul was very friendly and helpful. He was welcoming and willing to give advice about local amenities and services. The room was very clean and well decorated, with good quality beds and excellent lockers. Each person is provided with a locker and its own key, so you don't have to worry about bringing your own padlock. The kitchen area and common room are well equiped and there is free wireless internet provided, as well as a communal computer for those who don't bring a laptop. The location is also very convenient, only a couple of minutes walk from many shops, restaurants and the Guy-Concordia Metro station.
Overall, an excellent place to stay and well recommended.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My family of 11 stayed at Auberge L'Apero and most of them would prefer to go back and stay in this hostel next time. Special thanks to Paul for providing guidance upfront which level set our expectations. Most of my family members and teenage children are not familiar with staying on a hostel and sharing facilities with people we barely met before. Our host and those who were guests/users of the place were nice enough to accommodate. Special thanks to Camille who kept the place clean, and to one of the longer term user of the place who initially let us in and welcomed us.
The hostel location is in close access to the Metro subway, a BIX bike depot, parking for our 2 vehicles (except that parking fee was $15-18$ a day per car), fast food and grocery store -- and most of all the location of the Jazz festival key areas, the Canada day parade area and night life go-to places. Paul had information on the board suggesting must see and local information of interest to us tourist. The free use of a computer with internet access was a plus. The place had available a modest breakfast of cereals, milk and bread-- it also had a good kitchen for the likes of my family who prefer to do some cooking. The availability of 2 toilet/bath was a challenge for 18 persons when they need it at the same time but I understand a third one is in the works. With the cost for a night stay of less than $30, the facilities and level of service were reasonable.
Best of all, I had the problem of needing to extend for another day on late notice. Paul offered to fix an arrangement for at least a couple as a last resort, just in case. I eventually found another place as this hostel was fully booked, but appreciated Paul's offer. Truly by staying in Auberge L'Apero you are not just a guest, you become like family.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The people at the hostel were very nice and the rooms and facilities were very clean... overall more than you could expect for the price. I readily recommend this to anyone who is looking to stay in Montréal. The atmosphere is very relaxed and since it is privately owned and run it does not at all radiate the "charme" of other, bigger hostels. If I would run a hostel, this is what I would want it to be like.
