Alexandrie Hostel

We are settled travelers who have built this place from the ground up over the past 20 years while always putting backpackers needs first. Atmosphere is our top priority. Its important for our guests and volunteers to feel at home here. Although we have grown over the years we have retained the friendliness and close knit personality of a small hostel. All the guests and volunteers are encouraged to add their own character to the mix. Lets see what we can create!

We are looking for sociable and open minded people willing to share their time and especially their positive energy with us. If you are passionate about travelling and hostel life you will fit in here. You can help a few hours a day providing breakfast to the guests, helping promote our hostel through social media or some light cleaning or laundry duties. After work we go out most nights of the week. You are encouraged to join the hostel activities and discover everything Montreal has to offer. YOU NEED TO HAVE A WORK PERMIT to register whit us... you will be offered a bed in our beautiful volunteer dorm with a private balcony as well as daily free breakfast. Most importantly you will become a part of our wonderful and ever changing community. Come join us!

Luc is one of the most kind, generous and welcoming person. The hostel is very centric and situated close to the most awesome places. You have bikes at your disposal to explore the city and Montreal is very bike friendly. Overall a superb experience.

Mi primera experiencia de voluntariado fue mucho mejor de lo que esperaba, gracias al hostel Alexandrie pude conocer a viajeros de todas partes del mundo, el ambiente en el hostal es súper bueno, todos son muy amigables y te hacen sentir en casa. Además el lugar está muy bien ubicado (supermercado, bares, Metro, etc). Recomendado 100%, muchas gracias por todo! :)

This is a wonderful hostel with a spectacular atmosphere. One of the best I’ve experienced. The location is very central. The work and hours is generally fair, though sometimes a bit difficult. If you are considering this experience it is definitely worthwhile.
