Liked: Guests were mostly walkers or climbers of all ages from different countries. For those that make the effort to engage with others this can be interesting. The place is basic but adequate for a 1 or 2 night stay where a clean room/ bed, a warm shower and WCs are required. Theres no problem with abusive or difficult guests.

Disliked: The kitchen is basic. Theres no oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, chopping/bread board or or even a tin opener/ gas lighter and little crockery. Breakfast and evening meal are offered, and for the majority of guests who stay a couple of nights and either pay to eat here or in town its fine . For a 1 week base where you intend to cook each evening its below par. Apart from reception theres no area to sit and associate-ie no lounge, no garden to sit in and eat/enjoy a beer or coffee. The kitchen has a vending machine for soft drinks,coffee and beer. If you compare with a backpackers in NZ it wouldn't rate highly-thats cos it only a place to wash and sleep not a place to live for a week.

Liked: This was definitely worth it! It's a fantastic price and a nice place. I didn't spend much time in the hostel cause I was out and about but from what I experienced it was clean, quiet, and had all the services I needed (shower, kitchen, bed, etc.)

Disliked: It's not bad but its a bit of a walk from town. Maybe 10-15 minutes?

Liked: It is the cheapest bed in the Alps! Although the location is a bit off Chamonix centre, but it really is only 10 minutes walk. Also there is free WIFI.

Disliked: When you are in Chamonix, you should get a Guest Pass from your hotel which entitled you to several privileges including free bus ride, but the staff did not (maybe forgot) to give it to us and its too far for us to walk back and ask for it from them .

Liked: Good location, as it was close to nice hiking routes and close to downtown, but not immediately in downtown, so it was quiet at night.

Disliked: There was no room key, so the room was unlocked all the time.
