Le Gîte du Parc Lafontaine
Lonely Planet review
This converted Victorian house has an atmosphere more like that of a guesthouse or inn than a hostel. It’s located just a 10-minute walk from the main bus station and close to bar-filled Rue St-Denis. The continental breakfast is served on the terrace and guests can use the kitchen, TV room and laundry. There’s also bike rental available for exploring the city.
Our independent authors have visited Le Gîte du Parc Lafontaine and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Montréal.

Description provided by property
Located in front of Lafontaine Park where there are nightly free shows during the summer, our hostel is housed in a century building with high ceilings and wood floors and offers a unique charming and friendly home away from home.Our hostel operates sensibly like other Youth Hostels - travellers are responsible for making their beds, mixed dormitories are available, the ISIC card is accepted, etc. Moreover, we do not impose any restriction of days and our customers receive personal and courteous service. Cleanliness is of great importance to us.The Gite of Lafontaine Park is where comfort is affordable! Open during summer, June; July; August! Some things to see and do here are as follows - The Latin Quarter with its pubs, restaurants, cafes, clubs, teahouses, cinemas and theatres, festivals all year round (Jazz, French Music, Just for Laugh, Reggae, Movie, F1 Grand Prix, Fireworks, etc.) and Old Montreal, Old Port with street animations!We look forward to having you here!
