/ Space in Chamonix April 1-10

> It comes highly recommended, is well situated and reasonably price. Will hopefully see you in the breakfast room!
Definitely not as spacious or luxurious as the photos on that website make out though!
I wasn't overly impressed with Chamoniard. Owner was a bit of an arse, only concerned about the $. Gave me a bunk in a room for two. Then as I was dozing about 9pm he came and turfed me out cos he had a couple turn up. I was put in a larger dorm and rolled out my doss bag etc. Went for a pint as I was a bit peeved. Came back and some dude was sleeping in my bed!
