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.

Liked: Great friendly atmosphere in a brilliant location close to town and near bus stops for getting up the mountains. It's a cool place to meet other skiers / snowboarders / adventurers and I made some good friends there. The staff were friendly and really helpful- you just need to have a sense of humour about the Fawlty Towers style running of the place. Everything is cool, just not the most efficient way of doing things but it has loads of charm :-)

Disliked: The wifi was intermittent at best, although the staff were doing their best to try to get the internet provider to sort it out.

Liked: Helpful and friendly staff. Be prepared for dorm living, however everyone I met was friendly and enthusiastic. With gas ring cooking and no oven it's advisable to bring a kitchen knife and maybe some cutlery. This is definitely a hostel with no desire to be anything else, as such you get to save your money for the real reason you're in Chamonix. Short walk to a bus stop. Check out MBT bar just down the road for really nice beer and food.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike apart from the Breakfast, which I only tried once.
