Lovely staff, Becky and Lauren. Very cooperative and helpful. For peace of mind, would have liked to be able to lock bedroom door as there were a number of other users in the same building. Could do with a sign at the entrance to the Chalet.


Good facility. Great location. Friendly staff. Good value.

The staff are wonderful and helpful. Always cheerful. Breakfast was above average for price. If in Chamonix again, I would stay here. Nice common area too and we could store luggage while on the TMB.


Kitchen wasn't allowed to be used and the staff generally made is feel unwelcome. Disappointing for an expensive place.

Great hostel for the price. The rooms are not super fancy but I was very pleased given what we paid. The beds were very comfortable. The staff are great. Breakfast wasn't over the top but just what you needed before setting off on your day. Using the lock combination to get in was fine once we got the hang of it, but I think they should let you know when you book to check your email on the day of check-in (for code) since international travelers might not always have internet.


Awesome staff! Would definitely stay again!
