Liked: 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!

Liked: The location is not strategic...pls do not stay there if u have a big luggage. I was dragging the luggage from the hostel to chamonix train station on the snowing day. The 50m bus stop In front of the hostel is a lie..... No bus is ever going to chamonix train station, the bus is only departing for chamonix centre(national train station and city centre is not in the same place)conclusion, the location is not Good if you are not familiar with the places..Free wifi is good,hot shower is acceptable.

Disliked: Cleanliness is ok, kitchen has cooking pot, gas stove, plates and fridge.No microwave,no kettle...

Hi, Thanks for the feed back :)
There is a bus stop just 50 meters from the hostel, to go to down town and around the valley,
excepted train station.
To go to the train station, you need to take shuttle from another stop, or just walk 10 minutes, if you have alots of bagage its not very practical to walk. If there are few buses during the off season, doesn't mean that it's a lie!!!!

Liked: It was very clean.

Disliked: I went during the off-season so the hostel was pretty empty. I wanted to ask the staff about activities around Chamonix but she wasn't helpful and just went up to her room after checking us in.

Liked: Even though it was out of town it wasn't very far to walk, so the location was good. The staff were friendly and very helpful. It wasn't cold and the hot showers were amazing! There was free WiFi so I could keep in touch with family.

Disliked: One of the front doors was open all the time so anyone could walk in. The rooms only had locks on the inside so security seemed a slight issue. This was the only negative!
