We arrived at the property at 14.00, which is the agreed stated time for check-in. However there was no one at the property and the phone number left on the property door went through to an answering machine. We finally gained access after 17.00pm. There was NO water for the shower. The sink plug did not work. There was no functional ski locker - expected to leave skis/boots in stairwell of cellar which is NOT locked and six feet from the door to the property which is also NOT locked! **POOR**

Staff were very courteous and helpful. The accommodation was fit for our purposes and very clean. The bathroom facilities are a little dated and could do with modernisation. In general the bathroom and toilet facilities were cramped but acceptable.

Stayed in the hostel 4 nights during skiing holiday. The rooms were worn out, small and the bathroom was tiny - this is what you expect with the very low price. However, we found the staff extremely helpful and flexible despite of the language barrier. Free parking in the yard was a pleasant surprise - though the car was absolutely unnecessary in this location, which is simply superb - next to the main bus tops and very close to the pedestrian areas for restaurants and nightlife.

Advertisement is wrong, there is no hot tub. Our room was extremely tiny and the water pressure in the shower was very weak. BUT: it is probably the best deal you can get in Chamonix. Easy walking distance into town, clean room, good mattress, hot water. Staff wasn't overly friendly, but helpful when needed.

The rooms and bathroom are small, but quite great. The staff does not speak English very well. Overall the rate of this hostel is great and I was satisfied.

It was difficult to find because it doesn't have a sign outside. But other than that, we enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again.
