Liked: The hostel was basic but fine as base for snowboarding or skiing.

Liked: I wouldn´t stay there again...

Disliked: They don´t change nor wash the sheets, they smelled terrible. The hostel had bad heating and it was very dark. It was impossible to find the staff, they were never around. The rooms have no keys, they stay open and so is the front door, there´s no security.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at the Chamoniard Volant! The staff was really helpfull to find some hicking to do in the mountains. It was also really clean. The only negative point that I see is that you can't lock your room so you have to keep all your valuables belongings with you, But I would defenitly come back to the Chamoniard Volant anytime!
