Visitor comments

  • "Probably the cheapest accommodation in Chamonix. No private rooms, just dormitories with bunk beds for 4 people (I was in). Living areas have just very basic furnishing." - Trip Advisor
  • "For the price that we paid, it was everything ok. 4 beds dorm are a very good option. Kitchen it is well equipated and showers are clean. It is just about 800m from Chamonix centre and a easy walk to there, I will visit them again on my next visit to Chamonix." - Trip Advisor
  • "I chose this hostel as I wanted to leave some belongings in Chamonix while I hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc. (I paid €3 per day, though it depends on size & weight.) It was rather cramped but the facilities were adequate, the staff were efficient, plus it was good to get breakfast before setting off early the next day" - Trip Advisor


The gite can be found on the main road out of Chamonix town centre in the direction of Les Praz, about 800m up on the right hand side. See the map above to locate them.
