Liked: Cheap hostel in chamonix, hard to beat

Disliked: When they say you can buy sheets they mean you can buy what, in essence, is a paper potato sack. That said, it turned out to be okay. 15min walk to town can be difficult in ski boots.

Liked: Good location, good breakfast, toilets and showers always very clean, comfy beds with good heating in the rooms

Disliked: Not much to dislike, maybe the fact that the showers don't last very long as they are activated by a timed button, which causes you to press it 10 times which is a little frustrating

Liked: Low cost backpackers with wide range of people staying for all kinds of reasons. Stayed in winter whilst on medical course and fitted in lots of skiing. Location was reasonable, approx ten mins walk to centre vile.Reasonably frequent ski busses which allow free transport into town or to le tour, argentiere. Frequency increases at peak times. The bus stop is about 50m away, very handy. Unsure about previous comments about no busses and difficult access to town, if you do some thinking you will be fine!I stayed in 18 bed dorm. Comfy mattress, pillow and blanket provided. Room warm.No lockers in 18 bed dorm but felt safe and secure. Facility to hand valuables to reception for safe keeping. Ski locker seemed safe but not locked, but you can put skis in your room if you want.Kitchen is bombproof with massive fridge, loads of ring burners. A few old pots and pans (bring one if you don't like battered stuff). Does get messy but hey this can't be helped.

Disliked: Only one mains plug for 18 bed room was comical, but a 4 gang adapter soon sorted that.No kettle/toaster.In house breakfast 6 euros for a coffee, cornflakes and some French bread and jam. Avoid if on a budget and hit the amazing patisserie on the way into town instead.

Liked: It was inexpensive.

Disliked: The staff was incredibly rude and disorganized. I've never been treated so poorly at a hostel. The kitchen was outdated and didn't offer much. No microwave, few plates, no cups. They didn't offer secure storage for my valuables. I stayed in the 18 bed dorm and it was freezing, there was no door to it, let alone a lock, so anyone staying in the entire hostel could have come and gone through my things.


The property's response is

"The staff - they are really genuinely helpful and nice! My stay covered a weekend, and on sat night a bunch of rather rude kids partied up to 3am, verrry noisily, in the hostel's common areas. I thought the staff handled the situation quite well, sending them off to their rooms. In any other hostel such noisy people would've been thrown out".
Above mensioned is the review from a guest whos slept in our place, the same night!!!! And he is talking about you and friends.
