----- MEET THE HOUSE! -----
Lamps and weird knick-knacks dwelling with antique furniture and cosy sofas, torn tapestries, crooked hardwood floors and squeaking steps and doors makes all the charm and the warmth of the place. Built in the end of 19th century, The house has been preserved from aging, but in respect of its past, which makes the place very "storytelling"...
Amongst many vocations this place had, we keep artefacts from a past Chinese food restaurant and a retro women's clothes shop. Other non house-related artefacts fill the house. Discover all this while coming to our place in Montreal. And ask one of your hosts to translate what the walls and objects don't tell clearly to everyone...
Included features for every room are :
-Access to the fully-equiped kitchen, all you can cook!
-Two shared bathrooms
-Free use washing machine (bring your own soap) / Non-electrical air drying only

LEAVE NO TRACE!
Please do like at home. But please, this home is shared by other people all of the time. It doesn't take a lot of efforts to have a clean, tidy, calm house, if everybody collaborates...
So "leave no trace" means... leave no trace!
If you cook, leave no trace.
If you take off your boots... don't leave them in the way.
And if you walk with it on the floor during the Winter : leave no trace!
Same thing if you're having the shower of your life : leave no trace!
When you leave... empty your mini-fridge or give the food to other roommates!
And if it is late, around 10-11PM, in the lobby... sound is considered as a trace.
Please be quiet and kind to other roommates. And please tell the other roommates they should remain quiet if they are feeling too much social around our marvelous bar! ;)
As you can see, there are uncountable ways of leaving no trace. There are more and more and more... but we can't write them all here. That wouldn't sound fun and would be useless. Why? Because leave no trace is a logic way of living. It is a way to respect the the life space of others, a way to share without hurts. And we think, with experience, that you truly understand this. Airbnb users are really respectful people, and if we comparate to other guests we had, you're the best so far!
So as "Leave no trace" is the only rule of the place : Please leave no trace :)
And everything will be fun and fine!
Otherwise... you are free to do whatever you like inside the house... except smoking, playing with bare fire, and running naked (although it could be tolerated)...
See ya in da house :)
A beautiful, unique space. Noemie and her roomies are all very welcoming and helpful. I recommend it to anyone!

A lovely apartment, with a nice living room and kitchen. It has kind of a hostel feeling, due to the great amount of rooms and other guests. The introduction into the apartment was good and "Noémie and The Roomies" were friendly and helpful.
The gay friendly neighborhood is nice and has a good atmosphere during summer times, though parking is a bit of a problem. Only paid parking nearby and hard to park overnight.
This room is what you can expect for the price but it was definitely not as nice as the pictures look. It was located in a central location if you want to experience downtown montreal and the room was surprisingly quiet. Everyone was kind and respectful and my only criticism would be the cleanliness/quality of the building (ie. slanted stairs/door handles that are falling apart) but I would definitely recommend this place to any one looking for a cheap bed to crash in.
A house with a some rooms and really nice people. My room was as described, perfect for a few days stay. For those who like to be in the middle of the town and love hostel-style, this is the place to be!
The hosts were nice and helpful.
