    I loved this. We really appreciated the leftover hiking poles to be used on trips, they made our hike much more enjoyable. We wish the wifi was faster, as we had difficulty getting train tickets to leave. Overall an extremely positive experience!

    Chamonix Lodge was the best hostel I have ever stayed in! The staff was helpful and fun to talk to, there is free breakfast all day as well as a full kitchen that is equipped with everything you might need to cook meals. The hot tub and sauna feel amazing after a long day of hiking and the atmosphere was very fun and filled with people that always were down to do things and explore Chamonix. If you are coming to Chamonix, stay in this hostel!!

    Amazing place. Can't recommend this more. I found exactly everything I needed for my short stay. You can do almost everything in an autonomous fashion. The kitchen is well equipped. Washrooms are clean, and recreational facilities are great as well. This is nestled right below Mont Blanc so dont forget to catch the views. Albeit, a short walk from the city, but it is a great walk, nonetheless.

    You will not find a better hostel to stay in. It is 5 mins away from the bus stop but a little far from the city centre. The staff was really friendly. The ambience of the hostel overall was pretty cool. There is a hot tub facility where you can have drinks and chill.

    Great atmosphere/vibe and free breakfast all day was a huge plus. Uncomfortable beds and squeaked at every single movement. No security lockers but staff was accommodating and willing to help with valuables. Fantastic location.

    Great place. A little bit of a walk from the bus station in Chamonix. I had my own small room with a twin bed. There was a dresser and a small nightstand with a lamp. Breakfast was free, bathrooms were fine and it was a quiet hostel. It was great -- no complaints!!

    Good hostel in beauiful Chamonix. A little out of the centre, but within 15 min walking distance. Kitchen was perfectly equipped. Small breakfast included. Had a good stay, would definitely recommend staying there.

    This property has a main house with a ‘bunker‘ down below with its own entrance. There are three rooms with one that is very tiny and felt claustrophobic. Very clean but does smell a bit musty, the dehumidifier helps. No windows in bedrooms which felt even more enclosed and by N American standards illegal. Very clean, comfy bed, great shower and kitchen. Staff couldn’t be better. Not close to town, 15-20 min walk but Great bikes on site to rent. Overall good location.

    Very small private room with very very small private bathroom. Dorms and private rooms smelled very bad, like humidity and very small window in the dorm I stayed so was very hard to ‘clear’ the air. The shower in the dorm was not working. The night I stayed it was very noisy even after 1 am. People were shouting in the hallway and nobody of the staff seemed to care. So it was not a good experience and definetely don’t recommend the place.
