"The facilities are basic but clean and there are not many places in ski resorts where you can stay for this sort of price. Having a kitchen available was a boon and presented good opportunities to meet other travellers."

Liked: It is very cheap in Chamonix and very near the center station

Disliked: no cabinet for the guest, and no key for the door of the hostel and room. It make me feel a little un-safety. But I did not lose any thing.

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!
