The Hostel is full of friendly people with all the services you really need (storage space, bathrooms, kitchen, and good beds). We stayed at one of the lodges, which... More

This hostel was pretty much perfect. Clean and friendly. 2 minute walk to creekside Gondola and 30 second walk to bus transport to village. Had good heating and free internet! Full kitchen with all amenities. Rooms were warm with board/ski areas and dry racks. Room had bathroom and slept 4 people in bunks. Also they provided discounted lift tickets.
