How do I get to La Cabane from the airport?
When you head outside the arrivals terminal, take bus 15 (Mountain) into the city centre, getting off at Eastbound Portage at Donald/Bell MTS Place. From this stop you can take either 43 (Kildonan Place) or 10 (St. Boniface via Provencher), getting off at the St. Jean Baptiste bus stop. Look for the house with the murals (315 Provencher Blvd)... And voila! Welcome to La Cabane!
*Be careful of bus 10 - there are two routes going into St. Boniface. If you take bus 10 (St. Boniface via Tache), it is best to get off as soon as you cross the river. It will be about a 10 minute walk (800 metres) down Provencher Blvd.
Should I bring a sleeping bag or other linens?
No, linens are included in the price and we don’t allow personal linens such as sleeping bags or liners to be used inside the guesthouse. Towels and facecloths are also available at no extra cost.
Do you have lockers in the rooms?
We do have lockers in the dorm room. Don’t forget to bring a padlock. In case you forgot yours, you can purchase one upon check in (15$)
What can I do with all my gear after check-out?
You can store your luggage with us for free after checking out. Just be sure to pick it up before 9pm.
Can I bring children?
We do not recommend that young children stay in our guesthouse, as the atmosphere tends to be rather adult.

Children under 16 can only be in private rooms unless you are renting the entire dorm.
