Was an incredible experience, the volunteers are the best team ever! The receptionists are very kind, and the installations are just perfect. The work is not hard, the staff is very friendly and also attentive to the volunteers. The location is great, is very centric. It is definitely a recommended hostel, I would go again! Thanks for everything! 🥰

M Montreal has been an amazing experience. You meet so many people from all over the world and have so many meaningful experiences. The volunteer geoup and the staff become you family away from home and you immediately feel the welcome. The accomodation is great, you have curtains that you can close to have some privacy and a light and plug as well as some shelves inside your bunk! the free breakfast is really good too. all in all one of the best experiences of my life so far!! thank you M Montreal for having me ✨

Great experience and great team. Alexander our manager, was the nicest person ever and all of the others managers after him in charge aswell. All of the workers there are super friendly people and there's a variety of nationalities to meet. Overall, the hostel itself is top quality and people work very hard to mantain the high standards that they live up to. The reception team is also very friendly and they help you out a lot with anything. The work is very easy, you just have to do it and be on time, schedules are very flexible as they change it according to your own. Recommend it 100%.

Hey, worldpackers around the world. Have you ever feel insecure to go somewhere? Have you ever feel afraid of leaving your family and travel? Have you ever feel fear of face a new culture and be alone? Well, I felt all those fears before experiencing M Montreal, BUT, since the first step I made into the hostel, everything changed. This place became my home. This place became the safe place to be. This team became my new extended, diverse and beautiful family. This experience was unexpectedly transforming and wonderful. I cannot thank enough to all the crew for making this possible. 4EVER, LOVE

Hi Diego! Thanks for these lovely words - we appreciate them (and YOU!) so much. Your new family will always be here waiting to welcome you home should you ever choose to return. Take care!

Even it has the best facilities, the experience is not really good.

The shifts rules and lack of team comunication makes it awful. Things like having a list of 100 things you can clean when you have free time during your shift, you can not rest or talk to other people during your shift, and if you finish your job before, they will find you something else to clean.

It feels like they are doing you a favor leting you in, and you need to work hard to probe they need you.

But all the people from the reception is great, all of them are really amamzing, open and willing to help anytime.

Hi Julio,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment about your time with us at the M. Reviews are very important to us, and we're eager to ensure we are always improving to provide the best experience we can to everyone who walks through our doors.

First of all, it's great to see you loved our brilliant team so much! There's a lot of reasons we've been awarded #1 hostel of our size worldwide, but we definitely think that's one of the main ones. :)

We take great pride in arranging a fun and diverse experience for our volunteers here at our hostel, from the facilities and environment we provide to the time you spend with us on your tasks. We are quite upfront and clear, however, about the time (20 hours per week) that we ask you spend on your tasks and that we of course expect this time is spent productively - however facilitating a social environment for your peers and fellow travellers is of course important, and encouraged!

Thanks again Julio. It was a pleasure having you in the M family. Best of luck in your future endeavours.
