    I loved the fact that the hostel is not situated in the busy touristic city centre of Chamonix, but in a very relaxed neighbourhood at just a 15min walk from the city centre. The people and staff I met in the lodge were very easygoing. The organisation of the stay was simple and clear. The garden, sauna and luggage room are all positive aspects. I would certainly recommend this hostel.

    Staff is great Nice, helpful, and worked really hard to keep the place clean as people kept on bringing snow in. Cute lodging. Most uncomfortable mattresses though! I complained the first night after getting little sleep cuz my matress dipped. Next night wasn't much better. The mattresses are very thin and poor quality and probably wear easily.That was a shame cuz place was otherwise really nice but wouldn't come back. Also was kept on the cold side and would have preferred it warmer.

    No lockers, but electronic locks on every door. A bit of a hike to the bus stop, especially with ski gear, but not unbearable. Excellent, friendly staff, but are only available for limited hours. Common rooms, kitchen, spa and dorms were all great for meeting friends Bathrooms always smelled terribly, but kitchen was very clean and rooms were cleaned daily to a good standard.

    The washrooms were moldy and very smelly. They haven’t changed the shower curtains in years and the smell is awful. The whole house had to live with a crazy couple breaking things and we all tried to call the number we were given and no one answered or wrote back to us. The hot tub was broken and the grounds are not well kept. I would not recommend.

    I usually don’t leave negative reviews but I’m making an exception. This is by far the most expensive hostel I’ve stayed in and also one of the worst. Rooms too small, felt claustrophobic. Too far from the center. No lockers. Charge linen separately (why don’t you include it on the price?). Smelly. I didn’t get to know the staff, it’d be helpful to ask them about where to go. Won’t come back, have a nice day.
