My experience in Alexandrie Auberge de Jeunesse was absolutely incredible. Montreal is a city you want to live in, and the Hostel’s location is great for getting to visit the whole city by metro, as the Berry UQAM station is so close.
Luc is one of the greatest managers I’ve known, he is so dedicated with the hostel and always thinking about how to make travels feel comfy and secure. I hope he also had a good experience from me working there. The job is not difficult at all, it includes daily tasks to keep the common areas clean and tidy. I’d definitely go back if I could & I recommend it!

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.

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.

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! :)
