Damn, the apartments in Montreal are expensive.
Expensive?

Have a look at Vancouver if you want to see expensive.

I don't really understand the appeal of living downtown, unless you work there.

I'll be looking for an appartment next summer but anything around downtown is not an option. I need a safe place to park my cars. Unfortunately, that means I might need to go to...... you guys will hate me for this.... Laval

Verdun has cheap rent, few subway stations that will take u dwtwn in less then 20, 10 min by car, virtually no traffic to downtown ( depending on which route u take, like avoiding atwater street during rush hours)

Plus u got the river, if u need to quickly and at no cost "escape" the city life from time to time.

Live downtown (if you work there), get rid of the car, maybe save money!

For 800$ you can get a great renovated and furnished apartment like this one around Rosemont/Laurier metro. Which is only 25mins from the bell centre by the subway.

Btw you can park your car pretty much anywhere in montreal and be safe doing so, but you don't really need it for getting around town, although it's still less of a hassle having a car than not in Montreal, if you want to visit places. To get to the bell center is much easier to do by subway (unless you don't care about the 18$ parking)

Honestly OP you don't need to live around the downtown area. Find a place near a metro and you'll be in reach of the downtown core and the BC and save money in he process.
People have suggested good places, I also suggest into looking look around parc extension (or parc ex as everyone calls it).

Don't see why you're taking it so personally.

I lived most of my childhood under the poverty line. I can make fun of ****** looking apartments since I've lived in a lot of them!

Me neither. Traffic, noise, people who can't handle their alcohol, pedestrians who don't respect traffic signals, cyclists, bums, squeegees, no parking, etc. No thanks Jeff.

My standards are probably just really low, but I've seen way less where I am now than when I was back in MTL nord.

the .5 counts for the bathroom. So 1.5 means one room + bathroom. 2.5 means everything is separated into 2 rooms + bathroom and so on.

Beware. Many 3 1/2 have a "double" living room, meaning you get a kitchen and no closed bedroom.

Those are the best when you want to film some porn and you need some extra room for all the camera equipment.

A lot of things are different between Quebec and British Columbia. It's not a good comparison since people in Vancouver are getting more paid than here so student fees are higher and the cost of life is not the same.

So yes, of course, it's more expensive in Vancouver. But when I look at getting an apartment at $500 per month, I need to pay the bills for the electricity, phone, the internet, etc. Not counting the food. Damn man, that's expensive for a student. Not everyone has some parents to help them to pay for everything.

I guess I'll just try to save money the best I can...
