----- IMPORTANT NOTES -----
Please note that our house is shared between roomates and airbnb guests at the same time. Bathrooms and common spaces are shared.
----- 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...

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 :)
We absolutely loved staying here- such an incredibly beautiful apartment! So much character in every little corner- we really enjoyed being in such an old building, it felt like a place that had a lot of stories to tell. Noémie was very welcoming and kind! We enjoyed the atmosphere and it was nice to meet other people staying in the apartment. Perfect location, we would definitely love to stay here again if we ever find ourselves returning to Montréal!

Nice place. Definitely more of a hostel vibe than airbnb, I normally prefer actually living with the people than just in some big apartment they rent for airbnb. But the rooms were nice, and the location's fantastic. Didn't talk much to other guests but they seemed friendly.
Vraiment très bel appartement et merci encore à Noémie pour son incroyable acceuil !!!
The room is large, furniture old en simple. But we really like the style of the room and the rest of the interior of the house.
Great is the common area and shared kitchen. There is no airconditioning.
When you don't expect luxury (and you shouldn't for this price), then great choice.
Neighbourhood is (website hidden) Catherine is very central, walking distance from busterminal and metro rue berri.
The street is pedestrian shopping/eating area, busy, but only pedestrians.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis, la chambre est telle que décrite, pas de mauvaises surprises! Les pièces communes sont vastes. La rue est animée et à proximité de toutes les commodités, transports.
