Pleasantly surprised by the B&B, great value for money, the location is brilliant, 400 meters away from the bus stop and just a short walk away from one of the main streets, very good conditions inside the B&B, very clean, a small boot room behind the B&B, very useful if you want to keep skis bags boots etc. Overall great...

Vagabond is dirt cheap and the price of your bed includes an evening meal. It is reasonably well situated, being around the corner from the bus stop (almost every location in Chamonix requires you to get a bus to the slopes). There is a little pub downstairs which is busy, cosy and a pretty good shout. You must however share... More

The bar was cheaper than in the centre, probably the cheapest accommodation in Cham. You can't really complain about the size of the dorms when the cost is so cheap. We stayed for 3 nights - very helpful and friendly staff & relaxed atmosphere.

My first impressions of this place were not too bad. The dorm rooms are small and not clean but this is less noticeable due to the darkwood. There is a sink in each room but there are no sinks in thr bathrooms and no soap provided....a hygiene issue with multiple people sharing. The showers were adequate but also not clean... More

The vagabond is right in the centre and has all the features you could ever want. It has hot showers, spacious rooms, a bar, luggage storage and everything to make you feel at home. The wifi is good and there is also a car park just out the back.

Our group began and ended the Tour Du Mont Blanc here at the Vag. I was worried about the accommodations we would encounter throughout the Tour, but the Vag got us started on the right foot. Staff were friendly and welcoming. It is a VERY desirable location near shops and restaurants. I appreciated the basin right in the room, makes... More

I made a reservation via the phone because their website said you could not book online (which is false - you can actually book online via hostelbookers). The first few times I tried to make the booking, the date was too far in advance, so the new staff couldn't make the booking (apparently, it was their first day). So I... More

This is the cheapest accommodation in chamonix and is only a short walk from the main street. There is a separate gear storage/ drying room.The dorm room is not spacious but is ample. It is weird that there is a basin in the room as this seems to replace any need for one in the toilets. There are only 3... More
