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!

Tamas Kovacs

03 March 2010 Tamas would recommend this property

Liked: good value for money (chamonix is very expensive in general), room/bed/shower/toilet clean, can't complain. we were only sleeping there, so can't say anything about facilities (haven't used the kitchen for example), or how fun place it was. one thing i didn't like was that there was a door which was open 0-24, and we couldn't lock the dorm room either, so we left everything in the car (there were two lockers in a 6 bed dorm). it's a nice area so i guess nobody would come in from the street and rob you, but i found it a bit weird. in general it's a good hostel.

Disliked: Tamas left no negative feedback.
