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.
