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.

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.
