We spent a whole week with our three year daughter in this hostel. The staff was very helpful and patient with our little earthquake. The old building is very charming and is conveniently located close to a very big park.

Perfectly acceptable, but by no means luxurious. Shared bathrooms were clean & in good order (the outdoor shower might not be great in winter, but there's an indoor one also!) There's a well equipped kitchen if you feel like preparing your own food. No complaints at all.

We stayed here for 4 nights with a two year old...It's a nice family location actuatally: the hostel just opposite a park, which is lovely in case your kid needs to run!

First time as solo traveller and although I've been to montreal a couple of times I was a bit scared of 'hostels' but Gite du Parc Lafontaine was sooo safe, clean and the ppl that stay there aren't creepy whatsoever.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
