“I had an excellent stay in Chamonix! There staff was very helpful and pleasant. I stayed in a dorm room with three other people, and although the room is small it did not create a problem. The facilities were wonderful and very clean. The kitchen is great if you want to save a few and cook your own dinner. i... More

Can't say enough good things about this hostel. The communal kitchen is great, all stainless steel and gas stove/oven. Very social atmosphere in the common room, we've made a few new long term friends while staying here! It is a short walk into town, but far enough out that it is nice and quiet. Very cheap for what you get,... More

I had a mini break to the snow and decided to try mountain high lodge. There was a good vibe about the place. People all ages , all nationalities . It was a bit noisy at night but it is a hostel so a good pair of ear plugs would take care of this. A good location and easy to... More

I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights before attempting Mont Blanc. It was very clean, friendly and excellent value for money. Great place to relax and soak in the amazing views. I will definitely return to this hostel if I was come to Chamonix again.

After 25 years of skiing, this has been the prettiest alpine town by far! Chamonix was only an hours transfer from Geneva. The chalet was a brisk walk in everyday shoes into town, but not suitable for walking in ski boots. However, there was an excellent chalet shuttle service to any piste area of your choice (to and fro). The... More

The chalet was very far from the center of Chamonix and the buses for the center were on every hour instead of minutes apart. The rooms were really small, only with beds and rarely with a wardrobe. There was one wall-plug per room. The bathrooms were too small as well. One of the rooms has been a garage and has... More

This chalet comes highly recommended. From the word go Gary (Valley Fever) was extremely helpful and accomodating with the difficult task of taking staged payments from 16 unorganised friends, who were potentially arriving and leaving all on different days. We were picked up from geneva and dropped off at the chalet door (with a return transfer picking us up from... More

It is very far from the train station! I repeat, very far! Also, I am having difficulty in finding this place, as minimum direction was given. They are supposed to give away guest card that allow free transportation in that area, but they are "running out" of card, although I wonder they have ever stocked it. There are only 2... More

Mountain Highs is a no frills hostel which is perfect when you are spending most of your time outside. I was able to book a single room here for 3 nights for the cost of one night at the next cheapest accommodation. I figured, and I was correct, that most people staying in Chamonix were here for the hiking, thus... More
