Koli was responsive and easy to communicate with. The place itself is extremely basic but the bed was quite comfortable. It is not thoroughly cleaned but clean enough, and it sometimes smelled of smoke. You need to keep the windows open to stay cool enough in summer, so there is street noise. However, I was happy with the host, the location, the bed, and it is hard to beat the price!
We had a great time at Koly's place. He was extremely responsive to our messages and even let us check in early. We were there for the jazz festival and the location could not have been better. Great neighborhood near the metro, walking distance to downtown and only a block away from really neat coffee shops/restaurants. Unfortunately there was no ac, but thankfully the weather was not too bad, considering how hot summers can be in Montreal. Overall a good bang for your buck if the location is truly what's most important to you.
Location was ideal and space was exactly as listed. Koly's response time was very quick.
Koly was very responsive and easy to work with. We were actually moved to another of his places nearby (airbnb.com/rooms/1687470). It was a simple 3rd floor studio, but a great value and a fun location. Be sure to bring a towel!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Everything was great, although we were relocated to another place at 25 Avenue des Pins. Very clean and comfy and the location was incredible!!
Only the bed was a bit smaller and not really comfortable, but it was ok too.
The listing is in an amazing location, especially given the price, and I would definitely stay here again but would come more prepared. The apartment was pretty bare bones so I would make sure to bring the basics such as hand soap and towels. I would also research places to park. We spent a good amount of time searching for public parking before finding a parking garage on Rue Ontario only a few blocks away for $24/night.
The only negative regarding the apartment was the method Koly had for us to get in the apartment. We had to wait for someone else to enter the building in order to get in and luckily someone came within 10 minutes but if someone hadn't, we could have been waiting there a lot longer!
Overall, I would recommend this apartment to adventerous people willing to rough it for a cheap place to stay.
Communication with Koly was easy and quick. The location was very good with lots of things to do within walking distance, and public transit was very close. The studio was very comfortable. It (email hidden)ly area and the windows are on street level, so we would often hear people talking or music playing, which wasn't a big problem, just something to be aware of if you're a light sleeper. All in all, it was a great place to stay.
The apartment served the basic needs of having a place to stay for multiple people and a place to drop off your things. The bathtub was very dirty and the shower was essentially just a hose. However, the renter was very flexible with our late arrival and street parking was extremely easy. I just wish there were paper towels or garbage bags so we could properly clean.
The highlight of the space is that it is centrally located and close to McGill University. We drove in, and parking wasn't too difficult. There are many shops/restaurants near by, and maybe a 1/4 mile from downtown. The space was minimal, and provided the bare essentials, but I guess you get what you pay for.
Complaint: Before accessing the space, you have to go through a set of locked doors to access the apartment complex. As Koly didn't meet us to give us the keys we were made to wait for a tenant to exit the premises and quickly run to grab the door before it locked again. We had to wait for a good 30 minutes before anyone exited the building and I found this frustrating.
Malheureusement, je n'ai pas croisé Koly mais je sais par mon colocataire et l'ami qu'il l'a accueilli, qu'il est fort sympathique.
J'ai retrouvé l'appartement comme je l'avais laissé.
Je recommande Koly
Une personne extrêmement respectueuse ;) politesse de qualité supérieur ;) très heureux de l avoir hébergé et j espère sincèrement le recroiser ;)
