About this listing

The space

This is the Little Blue Room. Note that this room only has a skylight, no windows, therefore it is hot in the summer. We furnish fans.No false publicity here, it will be hot during the summer months. That is also why it is cheaper.

The 9 1/2 Guesthouse 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!!!

Location was absolutely amazing, near lots of great shops, bars and restaurants. Walkable to lots of things. Suited us perfectly. Room was as described. Minimal but comfy. Jean was a great host; helped us settle in, found us convenient parking, and very knowledgeable about the city. House can be a bit noisy, but for this price and this location, we didn't mind. Thanks again!

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at 9 1/2. We were there for one full week and it was exactly what we needed - the comforts of home in a big city. Jean is a fantastic and very accommodating host who is happy to help. If you are unfamiliar with Montreal, this would be the perfect place to stay as it is located in a fantastic area. Though there are quite a few rooms in this bnb, we were able to sleep well due to the quiet nature of the apartment. I will be staying here again next time I am in the city - I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I had a great time in Montreal, thanks to our stay in this cute, affordable B&B right in the middle of a great neighborhood. Jean was a great host, who met us after we were running late, gave us a map with some nice walking paths and other destinations. He even upgraded us to a larger room since there weren't many rooms booked the weekend we visited. The B&B really is like staying at a friend's house, with a shared bathroom but plenty of privacy in your own room. We would definitely recommend for an inexpensive but clean and convenient place to stay for a few days in Montreal.

Nice, clean place, well located on the Main. Jean was friendly and informative -- told us where to park inexpensively (or free if you're lucky!). Thanks for the great stay in Montreal!

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!
