My friend and I arranged a short ski holiday through sunweb over the New Years period - we could only go on specific dates so choice was limited. Skiing (and apres ski) was the priority so provided we got those things and a roof over our heads, we were sure it would be fine.

Response from Jasontvl, Propriétaire at 1861 Châtel Hostel

Hi Patrick, Thanks for your feedback. Our hostel is located between the village center and the start of the chairlift of Chatel Pre la joux. A bus stop is located 50 meters from the hostel and bring you to the village or to the chair lift every 15 minutes for free from 8:15 till 6pm. Next to these hours, we have our private shuttle to bring you to restaurant and bar till 11pm. Why did you never ask us for this service instead of walking? There are signs in all the hostel about that. About ski passes, we provide it for our direct guests right at the hostel on check in date. As you have booked through Sunweb it is a little bit more complicated as Sunweb wants the guests get ski passes at their place. Maybe it would be better to leave a review about that on their own webpage as Sunweb guests are only 2% of our guests. Next time, do not hesitate to book directly to us. You will get all the informations before arrival and your skipasses too. Kind regards Jason, Manager

Just stayed here for 3 nights for a boys ski trip. Excellent value for money but very basic and shared facilities. If you want to ski on a real budget then this is ideal. Ski bus stops just outside and couple of good restaurants are a 15 minute walk away. After 5.30 no shops

Clean, friendly, confortable, well suited for individuals, couples and group of friends. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need to prepare your own food. Whatever the season this place is ideal for people seeking some mountain fresh air for a few days.
