Liked: Ordinarily this hostel is really nice with alpine cabin feel and a few perrks like a good restaurant abd games room. The rooms are very small and tight for in-room storage and access to this storage is under the lower bunk so that is a pain. On the night I stayed the whole town was on a scheduled maintenance blackout. Arriving after 17 hours in transit from the UK to a completely dark hostel with no hot water was disappointing. Even though it was scheduled so they could have warned guests the HI had not arrange hall lamps or torches or anything just giving out rediculous glow sticks. CRAZY.

Disliked: The rooms are very small and tight for in-room storage and access to this storage is under the lower bunk so that is a pain. The toilets are in the room and no alternatives are provided off the hall so night time nouse is annoying with flushing etc. On the night I stayed the whole town was on a scheduled maintenance blackout. Arriving after 17 hours in transit from the UK to a completely dark hostel with no hot water no food either was disappointing. Even though it was scheduled (so they could have warned guests) the HI had not arrange hall lamps or torches or anything just giving out rediculous glow sticks. CRAZY.

Liked: The room was cosy and I like that there is a sauna. The games/tv room was a good size.

Disliked: Would have preferred the tv room to be nearer the kitchen as the main option for eating food you cook is to sit in the kitchen.

Liked: The location is great, the ski bus stops right around the corner. The staff at the front counter were cool and helped me with my greyhound bus problems. The upstairs area is a great relaxing area. The kitchen is pretty good with lots of room for everyone. The beds are fairly decent, but mine definitely could have used a new pilow and blanket. Large ski storage lockers were also great.

Disliked: The wifi is rubbish in certain areas. But you can get signal in the tv room and dorms. When i arrived my room stunk (but i think that was just due to the people already in it).
