Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.

We stayed in a double private room with en-suite, however it was located right across from the shared bathrooms so it was really noisy all night heating people in and out! There was also a lot of corridor noise even after the ‘quiet time’. The bar downstairs was nice with good

Good value for money and lots of activities during the week which is great for meeting new people, especially if you’re travelling solo. Made some of the best memories! Only criticism was that some nights a few of the bar staff we're known to get a little “distracted” and didn’t

Most Hostels have a mix of Shared rooms and private rooms. I travelled with my 15years old Son, so we had to take a private room because it is not alowed to sleep in a Shared room for People under 18. But in Tadiussac we even slept in a Shared room for one Night, but there were no other rooms aviable.

The only parking I really saw was on the street, but you can find the closest parking lot within walking distance on google maps.

"Rooms on upper floors are quieter, rooms away from bathrooms are quieter"
"Choose the 6 beds room, which offers a lot more privacy"
"stay 2nd floor or above if facing the street, 2nd or 3rd you won't hear anything."
"downtown, privacy, secure, clean, activities, bar, breakfast"
"4 people bedroom."
