Liked: Very nice old-style climber's guesthouse with a perfect personnel. Calm place, friendly visitors, good cooks. 10 minutes on foot from the center of Chamonix (cable-way stations, train stations, alpine equipment shops etc.). Good place for sleeping before and after hike or climb. Don't forget, that the weather is very important for climb, and be ready to stay near the mountain for a week or two. Have a nice weather!

Liked: €5 to have your washing done by someone else was nice. Reasonable price. Not a bad place as such, just not many perks.

Disliked: Only one power point in Each room. Push button showers. Super basic kitchen with barely any utelsils-no kettle or toaster. The lights are all on short timers so the place is always very dark. Wifi was dodgy.

Liked: Very charming and cosy hostel. I like the non-modern and non-perfect aura it has.

Disliked: The kitchen could be a little more modern, but we didn't use it so it actually doesn't matter.

Liked: 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.

Disliked: needs more hooks in the shower room a better wifi connection.

Liked: Great value for money, it has all you really need if you're going to be out all day in the mountains.

Disliked: The kitchen's cramped and fairly basic - though that's partly because the good stuff has been taken by previous visitors, so only the (ancient) essentials are normally available. If you ask nicely you might be able to get some better items. And you might find yourself suddenly moved to another room - not a major problem, but they do their best to handle short-notice cancellations and arrivals and the solution can involve shifting individuals in order to put a group together in a room.

Liked: I like this place very much. Close to the town centre and good value for money. The stuff are really good. I left my bag in the bus the first day I arrived, the lady in the reception helped me called the airport and bus company, and also called me a taxi to go le houches to pick my bag. I really appreciated that. hot water 24 hrs, ppl are friendly. Good place and definitely will go and visit again.

Liked: The staff was so attentive, serviceable and cool with me. They got involved with my requests and solved everything. The climate was of friendliness. It was so inforgetable, people all over the world discussing, having fun, and even sharing dinner time! We were always joint together, like close friends! I would stay there for 3 days, and I finally stayed for 5 :))

Disliked: Maybe that´s because of the wet clothes and boots during the winter, but the property was so bad smelling.
