You should all jump at the chance to stay in Yann's space. Of all the times I've done AirBNB this was by far the most positive. Yann really goes the extra mile to make sure your space will be squeeky clean and comfortable.
He has spent a great chunk of time and money renovating this space and it shows. From the cool hand made wood finishes, swing chairs in the kitchen, LED backlit shelving in the kitchen, skylight in the shower, i felt it was a 5 star experience. He has the kitchen appointed with all the necessities; brand new Lagostina cookwear, TFAL pans, all top quality. All appliances are brand new and there is more than enough space to really cook a huge meal. He had breakfast cereals, fruits, water, etc all waiting on my arrival.
I really feel like I got away with robbery paying Yann what he had asked. He is situated literally right across from the D'Iberville Metro, not a 30 second walk. Once on the train you are a short 15 minute ride to anywhere in the city. Whether you want to tour downtown, go see Parc Jean Drapeau, Mont Royal, Mile End, its all within a short train ride.
Yann lives downstairs in the lower apartment, the rental unit upstairs is shared between your room and 2 others, so he is accesible immediately if anything is out or sorts. He's a young guy, very kind, social, and friendly. You'll hold a conversation with him for a long time without noticing; a genuinely great person who is really concerned about you as a renter.
If you want to see Montreal and have a the most positive, carefree, and fun experience, you should speak to Yann.
