Me and my friends were in chamonix this winter for skiing. It was big dream of our life to visit chamonix valley and do some skiing. We went there to stay for 3 days and then wanted to move to some other places in the valley. But, as soon as we have arrived there, we have changed the plan. The... More

As soon as you enter into this homely threshold you are struck by the eloquent charm and character of the building. Upon arrival, the (beautiful and charming) staff showed us to our majestic chambré. We had a breathtaking view over the vast expanse of the chamonix valley. The room itself was a humble yet delightful space. The bunk beds were... More

This is a cheap, dirty, bottom-of-the barrel hostel. Staying here is marginally better than sleeping under a bush in town. It serves a purpose but makes no attempt to provide any shred of quality in doing so. Disappointing aspects of my 5-night stay: - Wifi only functioned 75% of the time and was so weak it was only available in... More

I was un this in this very cozy hostel for 3 days. The people in it where very nice and helpful all the time. The rooms where clean and organize as well as the kitchen and dinning room. The location is also very good you are just 50 meters away from the bus stop or 5 to 8 minutes away... More

Possibly the cheapest accommodation in Chamonix, especially around xmas! We were in the large dorm (18 beds) which was rather crowded. Most annoying things was wifi not really working in the dorm and only 1, yes 1 power point for all 18 people in that room! Didn't have any food/ breakfast provided, kitchen had extremely basic camping facilities for cooking,... More

I am surprised by all the terrible reviews this place is getting. What do people think they are going to get for this price, I paid less than 20 euro a night. The place is scruffy, the boarders kitchen is messy and the whole place smells like an old sock, but that is part of the charm. If you are... More

I went here in August 2013 with my girlfriend. The owners are very nice. As I remember they can speak 3 languages (French, English, and Spanish). They also let you to keep your luggage in the hostel after you check out. This hostel has a kitchen that you can use. I used it because I don't want to spend my... More

Expectations were low given the previous reviews of this place, but I needed somewhere cheap to stay at short notice so booked anyway. Not the friendliest of welcomes but it could have been worse. They did accuse me of leaving without paying because they could't keep track of their records. Positives: Convenient walking distance for Chamonix town centre, close to... More

The experience would have been fine if not for the rude, miserable staff. I didn't expect much from a €16 per night hostel, but I certainly didn't expect such unpleasant hosts. I would avoid this gite in future, especially having been told of others at a similar sort of price. The big dorm was just about clean, and comfortable enough... More

Well, where shall I start......we were greeted by an unfriendly & impatient woman who no body saw smile the whole weekend. The hostel has a side door that is left unlocked all night. The main room on the top floor has no door. In our group of 12.... 6 people were robbed in the night. The hostel owner didn't seem... More
