Liked: The staff were very friendly, and helpful (e.g. leaving luggage whilst skiing). They also allow bookings of just one night, whilst other places have a 2-night min booking.

Disliked: I stayed in the 16-bed attic dorm, with some noisy students. Earplugs meant I slept well, but other people didn't. On the other hand there was a friendly atmosphere up there!

Liked: OK, so it is not exactly the Ritz - but it is €18 per night and offers clean & simple accomodation, kitchen facilities, clean hot showers, space for ski kit, and very friendly owners. I thought it was ideal, a 10 minute walk from the centre of town, and despite a young ski crowd was quiet at night. I would happily return and recommend it. Take your own padlock for the lockers.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Very cheap place to stay in walking distance of the town.

Disliked: Although it was reasonably priced for the facilities on offer this is very much a basic hostel. There are few luxuries like a decent kitchen or communal area.

Liked: it had a place to sleep when so all other options were full

Disliked: no heating on (apparently the boss was away for the week & his assistant did not know how to switch it on); no real security (front door seemed to be open all night - keys were NOT given out); I checked (by email) before turning up that there would be a place nearby to watch the Rugby World Cup - this was met with a positive response by email, but when I turned up, it was revealed that there would be no where offering this service
