I'm a hardworking student who loves to travel....
The reservation was canceled 17 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Private studio in cool area (bars and restaurants around, can walk or bike virtualy anywhere), a little noisy at night, as in pictures, not very clean. Recomended.
At first sight it was not very inviting because of the dirty street and then, the dirty stairs. But we were reassured when we discovered the studio itself: clean, spacious and well decorated as predicted. Also, the host was nice and helpfull. We stayed one week here.
As mentioned in previous comments, there are some defects: the heat, the thin walls, the door handle of the bathroom is almost broken... Sometimes, the walls were shaking with disquieting noise when we used hot water in the shower. Despite these things, we had good times here. The neighbor's noises didn't bother us as the bed was very comfortable, so we slept well.
The studio is well located in Montreal, in a vivid but dirty street.
If you're young and you like to go out, i recommand you this place, it has good quality/price in Montreal.

I had a hard time finding the keys to get in and a text to Jo went unanswered. (Later I realized it was her partner I should be calling, but the phone number should be updated to reflect that.) When we finally got into the building, I was not impressed. The staircase is really dirty and messy, shoes everywhere, even a fridge right outside the apartment. The walls are paper-thin and I could hear the neighbor coming and going, which was distracting late at night. Additionally, the city was incredibly hot and the only remedy was a weak fan in the apartment.
I do have to say that the apartment was clean, and the toiletries in the bathroom were nice to have just in case. The location was very convenient and there's a Bixi station right outside. However, it was not the most comfortable stay and personally I would not recommend it unless you're really trying to stick to a budget. We left a day early.
The apartment is exactly as advertised. Bright, spacious, and well located. Check in and check out was well organized and easy going.
Great studio in a great location! Would stay here again.
The studio is great and really spacious. The location is perfect to discover Montréal.
As it has already been said before, the only point is that it´s noisy on weekends nights. Contrary to my boyfriend, I'm a "light" sleeper and barely slept on Friday night.
I didn´t meet Jo but her partner is nice and friendly and seems to be easy going.
- Bon rapport qualité/prix, très abordable pour le quartier
- Situation idéale au coeur du Plateau, proche du parc, de nombreux commerces, restaurants et bars.
- Très grande pièce unique
- Lit kingsize
- L'hôte est très efficace, agréable et honnête
- Sous-équipé (très peu de matériel de cuisine, de vaisselle, de matériel d'entretien, etc.)
- Attention, il fait très chaud dedans quand il fait chaud dehors ; très bruyant la nuit (avec les fenêtres ouvertes)
I stayed in this apartment more than 5 weeks. I am medical student and I had training in the McGill Health Center. I was running out of time, didn't have a lot of choices since I started looking for the apartment late so I chose the one nearest to the hospital. The host was welcoming and she is a very nice person. I traveled a lot all over the world and used a lot hotels, apartment, house sharing, and even hostels. Anyways, the apartment is in the third floor and the stairs are really narrow. Every time I feel like falling of them. Thanks God this didn't happen. The apartment is in the Saint Laurent street, a lot of clubs are there and there is one just next to the building. The problem is that sometimes it get really noisy to the level that you can't sleep, especially in the weekends. There is an apartment next to mine and really I can hear what they are talking about, the music they are playing and everything they do !! I am not a stalker but the walls of the apartment are thin to that level. I used to put high music when I have some company so to get a little privacy. The door handle for the bathroom from the inside is not working. I remember I got a friend that visited me. She used the bathroom and couldn't open the door. She was knocking the door to let me know but I was putting my headphones on and couldn't hear her. It was really embarrassing ! Am glad that didn't happen to me while am a lone. Anyways, I was expecting more since I paid a lot of money on this apartment and if I am going to take it again when I am back to Montreal, definitely I will not pay the same price ! May be half of it or little bit more. So if you are planning to stay in Montreal for 1 or 2 nights, go to the nearest clubs, restaurants, bars, and stuff like that, may be this is suitable for you.
Everything was perfect!
Great guest. Lovely girl.
Response from Jo:
Your place is gorgeous!!!
Nice guest, respectful and flexible.
I definitly recommend Rumi as a tenant. He was thoughtfull and very kind.
Rumi was a great guest ! Very nice and easy to communicate with, he took care of the place and left the place in a perfect condition.
Would host him anytime again, highly recommended !
Rumi is a nice guy! Very concern about other people and don`t want to add truble to others.
This is the first time he came to Beijing, he doesn`t want to bother me so he wouldn`t even call me when he meets problems in Beijing and I find out this only a two days before he leave. I could help him to make his trip much easier if I knew it earlier. But he is definitely a good man and a great guest!
