Quebec cracks down on unregistered B&Bs amid explosion of online rentals

MONTREAL - For a mere $40 a night, visitors to Montreal can book a room in a trendy, art-filled loft not far from the city's Old Port. The apartment's tenant, Alan Ganev, will sleep on the couch. For double that price, you can have Ganev's place all to yourself, and he'll spend the night at his girlfriend's. These are just two of the options on offer at Airbnb, a fast-growing website that advertises short-term accommodation in homes and apartments around the world. There are thousands of places up for grabs in Montreal alone.
