No travelling blues here...Enjoy the Blue room. funky deco and a large window overlooking Montreal's Main street, and the Mount Royal.
The 9 1/2 is like dropping in at friends place but not expected to spend anytime with them...When you get here, we'll show you the place, explain how it works, give you a virtual tour of the city on the map, answer your questions and then, wish you a good stay in Montréal...The spirit of a youth hostel but in the privacy of your room.
The location is perfect, we are ON the boulevard, the Main as we call it, home to Leonard Cohen and Mordecai Richler, the hip Plateau neighborhood, and walking distance to the new hipsterhood, the Mile End. Everything is walking distance...The Mountain as we call it is just a couple of minutes away.
The french Lonely planet (Le Guide du Routard) says: "the gem we dream of finding in a city...." You won't be disappointed!!!
A long long time ago, even before Airbnb even existed, I managed a youth hostel. There I realized that there was a strong need for private rooms but not necessarily with a private bathroom. A question of economy probably. So I went out and created the 9 1/2 Guesthouse. This is a Bed and Breakfast but with a youth hostel vibe. Breakfast is a self-serve formula, the towels don't match, and neither does the linen, and the kitchen is at your disposal if you wish to cook!! However the place is kept real clean and we definitely encourage a quiet and respectful environment.
We also rent out the entire space to groups. As you will see in the comments, people love the place. It is perfect for a weekend with friends, or a family reunion.
Looking forward to meeting you!
