spent over a week in chamonix at the mountains high. every day felt special from the view of mont blanc from the hostel, jacuzzi and sauna amenities there were perfect after a days hiking, to the friendly and always helpful service of the two girls who run reception. i expected basic, so between these and the general experience of meeting...

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

To come back to the hostel, tired after a day of hiking, it is wounderful to sit in the hot tub and the sauna and just relaxing! This was by far my best holiday ever, and I have had many good holidays. In just a fiew minutes, you reach Chamonix center with a lot of resturants and bars. If you... More

We loved our stay at Mountain Highs. The facilities were great and the staff friendly and helpful. We took a dormitory for our family of 4 and the bunks were clean and comfortable although the room was tiny. The common areas were excellent and kept clean and tidy. The kids loved the free wifi and movies. The supermarket wasn't too... More

When we found Mountain Highs Chalet Christol we thought it might just bee too good to be true as it was a significant amount cheaper than any other accomodation we could find. We took sole occupancy of the chalet as a group of 16 mid-20s skiiers, and we weren't dissappointed. The staff were friendly, helpful and fixed any issues (caused... More
