    In all my travels within and outside of Canada, this was my first experience staying at a university dorm. It was quite an interesting experience as everything was new to me: from staying in such a small room to sharing public washrooms and showers, etc.... but I quite enjoyed it and the money I savec on accommodation, I spent it on dining and shopping!!! The staff was extremely professional and the students were very helpful and nice!!! Not to mention that parking was available for free and easy to find. With all kinf of people staying there I felt surprisingly safe - I was alone at the time - Such a cool place to stay at for a short or maybe long period of time! Next time I am in qc I would definitely check in in this facility again.

    The fact that I had to open my windows for the lack of ac which I was able to hear all the outside noises during the night which kept me awake part of it, but it's ok, I was not expecting more for the money I paid, so it's not a real complaint, this is just an observation.

  • Older travelers

    This is not a hotel! There is no service, the room is smelly. I will not go there next time.

  • Single

    Nothing special, fairly goos value for money, fine for 1-2 nights stay

  • Older travelers

    A handy location between the bridge and downtown when traveling by car.

    The room was much too small for 2 people and was very hot and stuffy since there was no air conditioning.

  • Single

    Nothing positive. Stay away

    Room not cleaned until after 3rd night so no sheet or towel change. Shared bathrooms were filthy. I realise it is student accommodation but they are opening the facilities to the general public so should be cleaned regularly. The only positive is the 800 and 801 bus service that runs very frequently to quebec city and the falls.

  • Older travelers

    Reasonable value.

    We were surprised to find on arrival that the standard rooms do not have air conditioning and we had to pay over double to get one of only 4 rooms which did. Thankfully one was available. To be fair, the A/C rooms are actually suites. The cheaper rooms without A/C are very small.

  • Group of friends

    These rooms have no air conditioning or other ventilation! And the two windows were tiny. So it was literally too hot to sleep half the time.

  • Family with children

    Rooms, showers and toilets are very clean and very close to the bus that goes downtown. We had very pleasant stay just it was very hot so fan would be beneficial. There are also laundry and kitchen facilities so very good if you are on a budget. Would use it again for sure.

  • Single

    I truly enjoyed my stay at the residences; the room was very clean and the location was perfect! Very easy access to the buses, the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, value for money absolutely excellent! It was a great stay, I highly recommend it!

  • Older travelers

    It was the cheapest place we could find during the Music Festival

    No ice in ice machine, very poor service, no on-site service personnel, no air conditioning or fan. It IS a dorm room...which we knew.Very small room.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent access to public transportation, reasonable value, close to shopping and major tourist attractions, clean and comfortable rooms

    Rooms not air conditioned, food service as expected for a college campus

  • Couple

    Parking fee was included

    A bit noisy in the morning because of students talking loudly in the corridors.

  • Couple

    Cheap, only place available.

  • Older travelers

    The beautiful campus

    No air conditioning Better location directions, it is a city within a city!

  • Couple

    It is absolutly sufficient for backpackers. Good value for your money. The front desk guy was extremly helpful. You can get into the town easily by taking the bus line 800 or 801.

    Keep in mind that this is a students home which they rent during summer holidays. So it will be definitely a little bit noisy during the night. I personelly did not sleep well in the bed, my back was aching. However, my husband had no problems at all.
