The inclusion of a ski pass in the hostel rate is a very positive point. Dinner at the hostel is good and good value. Only problem is shortage of power points in the dorms - we had only one and it wasn't working.

Die Lage ist wirklich traumhaft, wenn man den Blick zum Mont Blanc bedenkt. Die Toiletten und Duschen könnten teilweise sauberer sein.

The inclusion of a day pass to visit the attractions (Aguille du Midi etc) was absolutely fantastic! Otherwise the hostel would be expensive, but this with pass it was not. A pass for local transport was good as well. Overall - excellent!

L'accueil très très sympa, le personnel souriant et serviable, l'auberge est très propre. Repas était très bon! Certes, c'est un peu vieillot, mais le prix (40 euros la nuit) avec le forfait inclus - c'est imbattable! salles de bain - ok.
