Free issue of the carte d'hote giving unlimited access to local buses and trains was great

Is included in the room rate, it was 43 euros. Lift fee, room rate, divide, do not know the reservation method of the other plan. For example, room charge 15 days. (15 × room charge) Apart from this, the 15-day ticket, buy (tickets of 15 days) Others include, dinner is a lot too. Long-term stay = light meal, desirable I, a kitchen, I want a refrigerator

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review. I'am not sure i got everything right but will still try to answer. Sorry for the tough time we had explaining things clearly to you, just because of us not knowing a single word of japanese, we 'll have to work on that for sure ... ;) Let me answer that the Lift Passes included for each night is a real benefit offered to our customers coming to visit Aiguille du Midi, Mer de Glace, Tramway du Mont Blanc, most people have the use of it for moutainbiking air sports, trekking, pictures and so forth. Even more during winter for ski-hollydays ! Our package is cheapper than the pass alone ! We can understand that for longterm stay it is'nt appropriate, and we apologise for that, but most of our customers are here for four days in average, and find the deal incredible. The pack without the meals is also available though you're right, there isn't a shared kitchen at the hostel, but, sorry if you weren't told about it, we offer to use a fridge when asked. Hoping you'll keep plenty of good memories from your stay in our Hostel anyway. Kind Regards L'équipe de l'auberge HI de Chamonix.

A good place to stay on a budget in Chamonix. The discount tram pass was excellent. It's about a 25min walk from the south area of town, but once you get a bus pass the bus stops right in front of the hostel. Staff was very friendly and helpful, beds were flat and sheets clean. The shower didn't really have hot water, but otherwise worked well. I would stay there again.

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.
