Loft is by far the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! Charley, the owner makes you feel very welcoming. She’s always prepared to answer all of your questions and give you tips about what to do and see in the area.
The rooms itself are all spacious, very clean and comfortable. There’s under floor heating, free wifi, a large chill area with a massive flat screen TV, Wii, DVD’s, drying room and even a pool table! The large communal kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook your meals. The showers and bathroom area are kept nice and clean. I always had hot water, even late in the evening when everybody else already had a shower!
In the garage there’s plenty of place for storage (ski’s, snowboards, mountain bikes). I found the boot heaters very useful.
The location is superb! A 5 min walk to the funiculair (7 minutes right up to Arc 1600), town centre and railway station. Loft is located right opposite super market Lidl and the local bakery.
I travelled solo in the winter of 2012 and stayed in the loft for a month. The Loft feels like one big family with like-minded people who are all out there for the same reasons.
During summer time I went back for some summer activities. Loft is without a question a great stay during both summer and winter. During my stay in the summer I’ve met some motor biker guys. It’s perfect for them as they can park their precious bikes on the private parking space.
I would definitely recommend the loft to anyone who is looking for a superb accommodation with excellent facilities in the French Alps. It’s simply the best place to stay in Bourg/Les Arcs! Go and visit, you will not be disappointed! But be aware, the word is out so book quick!
