Liked: I like its convenience to transportation, only 2 blocks from Chamonix and 20 minutes to start of Tour du Mont Blanc. Beautiful views of Alps. Many hiking trails. Paragliding. Pedestrian-friendly. Many Trekkers choose this hostel. Rural scenery. Staff speak 3 languages-- English, French, Spanish. I am staying here almost 3 weeks. Free bus rides all over Valley.

Liked: Extremely nice and helpful staff. I was only there for one night so didn't spend a lot of time at the hostel, but perfect for my needs and very affordable.

Liked: The absolutely best thing about the hostel is the cheap prices, location and friendly staff. If you're looking for a cheap bed to sleep in, a hot shower and a place to cook and this is your place. Just don't expect anything fancy.

Disliked: As there's no such thing as cheap and good, the low prices comes with some trade-offs. First of all the rooms are teeny tiny. Everything from the bed linen to the kitchen equipment is a bit dodgy at best. Apparently not all of the rooms have lockable doors and the ones that have are missing lockers. Also the breakfast is definitely not worth the cost.

Liked: It has a fantastic location - a bus stop right outside the hostel that goes to the slopes and just a short nice walk (5 mins) into the centre of town. It's really quiet and peaceful and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The showers are warm, the place is clean and the rooms have cute little balconies. Most of all, it's super cheap and great value for money.

Disliked: The internet only works in the reception, not in the rooms. The reception opens at 10am so you can't use the internet before then. There's no sort of common area/bar to hang out in. They do breakfast in the morning but theres's no kitchen to make your own food/teas. They can only provide blankets (that you pay for) that arean't that warm so bring your own sleeping bag. However every room is heated so it may not be an issue for you. Although I'm pointing out the negatives, none of this really bothered me because the place is such a bargain and you will not find a better place in Chamonix for this price.
