There's no question that Quebec City has one of the most beautiful old towns in Canada. With its districts cobblestone roads and old stone buildings that pre-date our country, Quebec is almost like a piece of France right here in Canada.
Being one of Canada's major cities, it's also a popular weekend destination. Close to Montreal and just a few hours from Ottawa, Quebec has never waned in the tourism industry and it just seems to keep growing year-after-year. However, due to the small size and popularity of the old town and downtown, it can be difficult to find cheap accommodation, especially during the summer.
Thankfully, the Airbnb scene is well and alive in Quebec and there's plenty of cheap accommodation for couples, families and groups of friends. Here's eight of our favourite cheap Airbnbs in Quebec City:
