by Hugo (08/16/19)

"If you do not know this amazing 5-days festival, MUTEK is all about electronic music with incredible digital art (I mean, look at the photos!). I went there last year and I really had a blast! The venues, the open-air shows, the vibe, everything about this festival is very impressive and just FUN! Can't wait to come back ;)"

Randolph Pub Ludique

by Joanie (07/10/19)

Located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, this place is the perfect match between your inner child and adulthood. It’s a bar where you can drink while you play board games.. and with more than 1500 choices of games you will definitely find the one to enjoy your night! And you know how it’s long and complicated to try a new board game because of all the reading-the-rules-book process? Well good news, the amazing staff know all about the games so they will make sure to suggest the best one for your group and to explain everything there is to know about it! They also have really tasty meals and snacks and not only a good selection of cocktail/beer/wine, but also a scientific potion themed cocktail card. (Pssst, they are even served in Erlenmeyers!) Whether you’re in the mood for a game of Risk and a local craft beer or you feel like a fancy wine and Scrabble kind of night, your time at Randolph will be worth while!

Montréal ComplÚtement Cirque

by Alex (06/18/19)

One of my favorite festival is back again this summer and it's gonna be amazing! Beauty, creativity, madness (in a very good way), acrobatics... Just a few words I would use to describe "Montréal ComplÚtement Cirque"! For 10 days (from the 4th to the 14th of July), you will see some crazy performances in the streets around the M Montreal Hostel, but also in proper theaters every nights and since you guys are guests of the M, you get 20% off!!! Check out their website to know more about their upcoming shows!

L'Avenue (Mont-Royal)

by Sara (03/12/19)

If you want to brunch, it's THE PLACE TO BE! They have a wide selection, fresh and local products, and they adapt their menu to vegetarians as needed! The place is cool but small and very popular, so be prepared to wait a tiny little bit! The restaurant is also well located, Mount Royal Avenue is next 30 minutes away from the hostel! Perfect for a small digestive trip! Or go shopping along the avenue!

Only a short metro ride out into MontrĂ©al's vibrant surrounding boroughs is the fabulous Gusta, where you'll find some of the most mouthwatering vegan food in the city! Choose from a menu of delicious goodies such as burgers, burritos, hot dogs, or my personal favourite - the deluxe kebab đŸ€€. All of the food is made with Gusta's famous selection of "meats" and "cheeses" - in quotation marks as, you guessed it! It's all 100% plant-based. While you're there, you're also perfectly poised to see the famous Jean-Talon Market right next door. It's one of the biggest open air markets in North America, full of fresh local produce and delicious local delicacies. It's open year round, and an awesome way to see MontrĂ©al life in full force.

" How about visiting Montreal in style? At Dyad, you can rent an electric scooter (or even a bike or an electric bike FYI) and do the main attractions of the city within a day: Eating a bagel in the artistic Mile End - take photos of the entire city on the top of Mont-Royal - go on the Formula 1 circuit on the island - chill at the Old Port - ride on the beautiful Lachine Canal etc etc... Dyad also does amazing tours with a super friendly guide that tells you stories about the city & its different neighbourhoods.

Chu Chai

by Paul (02/12/18)

" Chu Chai is - for me - the BEST RESTAURANT IN ALL MONTREAL and yep, it's vegan! This Thai restaurant has beautiful and healthy dishes & they recreate meat like beef, chicken or even shrimp and it's just crazy amazing! [Try the beef 3-flavour sauce]. Not only the food is so good there, but please, PLEASE, try the cocktails! Also, the staff is very friendly and the place is beautiful! So if you're a vegan or not, go to Chu Chai #worthit "

Sports de Combats

by the Staff (01/15/18)

" Looking for a way to escape the cold here in Montréal this winter? Well, here is a brilliant activity, tried and tested by the M Montreal team: Combat archery! After a brief tutorial on the use of the bows and the rules of the games, it's time to go to the battlefield! We were definitely more than exited to shoot arrows at each other - with foam tips for safety though, of course. They offer a wide range of activities, including axe & knife throwing, nerf battle and if you're really stressed and in the mood to break things, let your anger out in the rage cage! Sports de Combats is located in the beautiful Mile End area, so why not explore the neighborhood as well? To recharge your batteries (because let's face it, combat archery will be your workout for the day!) we definitely recommend you to check the Dieu du Ciel microbrewery, which offers some of the best beers in town! A huge thanks to Sport de Combat for their welcome and thumbs ups to their great staff! "

Ma Poule Mouillée

by Alexander (01/05/18)

" Just next to the beautiful Parc La Fontaine is one of Montréal's best kept secrets - the amazing Portuguese feasts of Ma Poule Mouillée. It's small and cosy and unbelievably cheap for how delicious the food is and how big the servings are. I recommend trying the poutine, a mouthwatering Portuguese take on one of Québec's most famous dishes. "

La Graine Brûlée

by Claire (12/20/17)

" La Graine Brulée is the cutest café you could find in Montréal! It has a really nice youthful atmosphere and you can even play Nintendo 64! The mix of playful and studious vibe makes this place pretty unique, plus, it is located only two minutes walk from the hostel. Make sure to try their giant cookie! "

" Open from 3AM to 10AM on Friday and Saturday, the Stereo is a club specially dedicated for after parties and it is only 100 meters away from the hostel. It's a cool place where Dj's play techno and trance music and you have plenty of space to dance! So it is really perfect to have a good party and good memories! "

by Claire (10/05/17)

" Crew collective & cafe : This old bank from the 20's converted into a gorgeous coffee will blow your mind! They kept the building in the decor of the time and the huge ceilings are quite impressive. For a fair price, you can get delicious food & drinks and enjoy them in an unique atmosphere.

Piknic Electronik

by Umberto (08/31/17)

" Piknic Electronik is - in my opinion - the best thing in Montreal. Spend the day on the island and dance on electronic music until you can't feel your legs anymore! Every Sunday is like a Friday night - except it's way better! "

Resto Vego

by Stewart (07/04/17)

" Vego is a vegan / vegetarian friendly café located on Rue Saint Denis. It sells a range of foods like salads, sandwiches and burgers. They also have sweet items like cookies cakes and smoothies. I am neither vegetarian or vegan but their Red Bean Burger is a regular purchase of mine. I would consider it an equal to any 'traditional' beef burger. If you're looking for delicious, healthy food at very reasonable prices, then you should check out Vego. "

Le Pub Saint-Élizabeth

by Myriam (06/25/17)

Patati Patata

by Umberto (06/11/17)

" Located on St-Laurent/Rachel, the guys from Patati Patata make the best french fries in town (and probably the best poutine too). Grilled and prepared just in front of you, the food is also really cheap (2,50$/3$ the burger). My advice? Get your meal to go and eat it on Mont-Royal;) "

And that's not all, cookies, toast, home made lemonade, rice and hummus are also included in the price !

St-Viateur Bagel

by Clément (05/07/17)

" Saint-viateur bagels is the place to be when you come to Montreal. With about ten different bagels such as sesame bagels, with poppy or grappe and cinnamon, your gluttony will be put to the test. In fact the bagels are prepared on the spot with the help of a huge wooden oven, so you will be able to see behind the curtains while tasting your still hot and crispy bagels. Wether they are sweetened with chocolate ot salted with a slice of salmon, it will be difficult to eat only one . "

Le MTL Resto + Bar

by Nicolas (04/30/17)

" At the corner of Saint-Hubert and Duluth, Le MTL Resto + Bar reflects the best of the metropolis we all know and love. Check it out for both its fantastic atmosphere and a taste of food that typifies Montreal—quintessential local plates infused with and inspired by the many different cultures that make this city what it is. Le MTL also offer a few beers from one of Montreal’s best microbreweries and a selection of some pretty innovative and delicious cocktails if you’re into that sort of thing! "
