First time ever I comment something. So read this !
La Baraque is the place to be in Montréal. We really enjoyed our stay, we even took one more week to spend more time here. The location is great, Michael is really kind and you can count on him for anything. Moreover, the roomies are great, we enjoyed our stay with these new friends of ours, from France, Canada, Switzerland, and Czech Republic. A lot of people with different stories, cultures, dreams, which are inspiring and also great to know. We wished to have more time to spend with them, because that always would have been a real good time shared.
We never lived with roomates before. We are a couple that likes to be alone, in our privacy et caetera.. But that experience changed our mind : We can have time for us, our privacy, and friends, parties, at the same place. (still, I do not know if it would be the same out there.)
So, it's a special place, and we want to add that you can not be disappointed by the apartment. It's vintage, it has a spirit. Aaaand yes : that's huge and comfy. Everything is clean, tidy, and beds are perfect.
This is a unique place.

I spent with a friend two incredible months in the most wonderfull place in Montreal ! La baraque is one of these unique place on Earth ! I would love to come back and stay more longer ! The host are so Nice and with the other roomates we had so much fun! The baraque is a big home for every body who have this little piece of craziness ! We Will miss la baraque and Montréal so bad !!!!!
Thanks for everything

We stayed with Michael in February 2014. He and his room mates were all very friendly and helpful. The room was warm and quiet as advertised. The house was not perfect but it added to the charm and had everything you needed. The best part was the location which was unbeatable for the price. It was in walking distance of most of the main attractions and there were plenty of food places and shops near by. Public transport was also very close if you needed it. Would definitely stay there again.
This place is really cool given you understand that you're pretty much getting what you pay for. It is one big room with a double bed and then they add mattresses on demand. The vibe of the place is quite cool and the people who live there were friendly.
It's perfect for a boys weekend but nothing more I believe. Definitely not for families.
Close to the metro and many activities.
Would stay there again. Considering value for money, it's ideal.
This is a clean, warm, and very quiet hostel-like environment. If you want something cheap with no frills, it works.The walls are unfinished, and the upstairs floors and hallway were a bit grim and need a lot of work. The wifi was extremely slow and weak, but I could connect to free wifi from local businesses. The breaker shorted a few times (any time I had on the heat and my computer).
Michael and the roommates were nice and helpful. Great access to the metro (Beri-UQAM station) and bus routes around town and to the airport. I loved the location, but next time I'm in Montreal, I'd rather spend a little more for a few more frills.
I had a fabulous stay at Last Baroque. A really good crew live there and create a homely and fun atmosphere. My room was bigger than a lot of my apartments in Melbourne but somehow the bar heater managed to keep the room toasty (website hidden) Catherine St is right in the mix and I pretty much walked everywhere. There is even a supermarket across the street. Don't tell too many of your friends though as otherwise I won't be able to stay there next time!
Michael et les Roomies sont vraiment gentils, ce fut 4 jours en bonne compagnie. C’est vraiment bien situé, près de l’épicerie, des bars, de la station de métro, etc. L’appart est grand. C'est un très vieux bâtiment, les tapisseries, les cicatrices sur les murs ainsi que l'escalier de bois en témoigne. Personnellement j'ai trouvé cela charmant. Pour le prix et les avantages, nous recommandons cet endroit.
