So this hostel has a great dive bar (but not too divey) kind of thing going on in the basement where they have comedy shows Thursday night. The vibe was comfortable and fun. The comedy show had a few uhm,.... folks who were trying but...More
I didn't know what to expect when I heard that my youth hostel had a comedy show, but I am so happy that I went. This is by no means an amateur hour open mic. These comedians are clearly very talented at their craft and...More

Thanks for the awesome review! We're actually located in The Village as opposed to Vieux Montreal!
Personal taste in comedy is totally subjective and so this review isn't based on the performers themselves, but rather, the concept and venue. The venue is very cool; located in the basement of the M Hostel with an awesome vibe. The staff were welcoming and...More
Amazing relaxed and intimate atmosphere, see rising stars and chat with them! Comedians practice their material here, it is very exciting. The bar is in the basement, lovely decor and friendly cool staff.
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party
spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomised by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
