LEAVE NO TRACE!
"Leave no trace" is the only rule of the place.
Please do like at home. But you have to keep in mind that this home is shared by other people all 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 the other people who live in the house who may sleep. And please tell to others 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.
So 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 :)
Noemie was very welcoming and accommodating. Cute air bnb. Very rustic feel. In a fun neighborhood.
Would recommend to others. If you're look for someplace very upscale, this may not be for you. But if you want someplace charming and unique, this might just be the place for you.
Large, clean room in a very old but charming bohemian apartment with multiple guests and/or roommates around, near a major metro station. Window faces out to a busy street, so likely not ideal for anyone sensitive to noise. Perfect for my trip, an affordable and comfortable place to crash every night after being out all day. The only hitch was that one of the washrooms was out of order the first day, so there was quite a wait to use the only other washroom. This was fixed up within a day.
We were three girls staying at Noémies for two nights. The room and the shared bathroom facilities were really clean, and we felt very comfortable in the shabby-style apartment. Everyone was really nice. Nathan showed us stuff on the maps and Noémie had good advice on what bars to go to. Though there were many people staying, it was quiet at nights and the location was convenient as well. Can't complain about anything! Thanks for letting us stay with you, Noémie!
Logement très bien placé en zone piétonne. Accueil sympathique une fois notre hôte trouvée. Dommage de ne l'avoir vu qu'1/4 heure en 1 semaine. Dommage également que ses deux aides sur place ne veuille pas parler un mot de français au Québec. Le logement a du charme, mais manque cruellement d'entretien : fenêtres simple vitrage non hermétiques et boiseries très dégradées, murs avec des morceaux manquants, peintures très dégradées, électricité inquiétante. Bref, les photos sont trompeuses. Je regrette que l'esprit airBNB soit perdu et transformé en pur business : capacité de location de 25 personnes environ. Logement cher comparativement à l'hôtellerie au regard des prestations.
Ótimo lugar para ficar na cidade. Limpo e perto de tudo. Fiquei num ótimo quarto, que dava para a rua de pedestres (pelo menos no verão estava fechada para os carros). Por isso, o barulho não chega a incomodar. Não há ar condicionado, mas o quarto tem ventilador, o que ajuda quando está quente (mas são poucos os dias de calor verdadeiro por lá...). Minha experiência foi bastante positiva.
Very well located old school apartment in St. Catherine. The room was big enough to accommodate 3. The decoration is really old however it is really clean.
We were received by Noemie at the time we were supposed to meet up. Noemie directed us to the streets with parking and we found the parking no problem. The apartment looks Like what we saw online. It's rustic and interesting. We were out most of the day and only came home to shower and sleep. One warning is that it is on a Main Street in the Gay district so it can get pretty noisy so bring earplugs if you have the rooms to the front of the appt.
