ive been skiing a number of times, and in the past in a number of hostels across the world during my travels. i can honestly say this was the worst accomodation ive ever seen. firstly, the reception "staff" run between the bar and the front desk all day, working at both, leaving out room keys and PASSPORTS free to be stolen at any time (we actually stole our passports back to keep them safe and they didnt even notice!!).
they have the cheek to ask for a 200 euro deposit in case anything was broken in the room, we pointed out to the man at reception that EVERYTHING WAS BROKEN and he shrugged and said i know. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHS. there are no stairs or split elvel apartments, one smelly dark room, with SIX "BEDS" WAS ALL THAT WE HAD. two crappy camp beds, one smelly sofa bed, and two single beds, all within touching distance of eachother. im really not joking.
every bed was broken, every bed! slats supporting underneath had been taped together, so the mattresses wouldnt fall through. imagine a place so dirty that when you sleep you dont want to touch the mattress or bed sheets your sleeping on. our pillows (4 for six people) had traces of blood on them, IM NOT EXAGGERATING. THERE WERE HOLES IN THE MATRESSES..
the door had signs of forced entry by some sort of metal implement form the outside, which i thought strange since it was so bad i would have expected them to have been form people inside trying to get out!
list of things broken in the room- table, six beds, door lock, door handle, radiator mount on wall. this doesnt seem like much, but thats all thats bloody in there.
we had no hot water on the first night, and for every other night we had to ration the water. out showers consisted of- quick hot water burst, lather up without water, quick hot water burst for delathering, and then towel dry fast to let the next person in. if your not fast, you have to wait for one and a half hours to let the water heat up again.
the noise in unbelievable. ive read other reviews saying that it was noisy, but ive honestly never in my life experienced anything like it. rediculous. never heard so much noise.
let me be honest, were in our late twenties, and have travelled extensively. weve stayed in different places around the world, from hostels to 5 star hotels, and were were fully aware what a budget accomodation shoud be like and have stayed in lots. nothing will prepare you for this accomodation.
to summarise- its a noisy, dirty, smelly, dark hole. you wouldnt let your dog sleep on the mattresses. its overpriced (for what it is), the staff may aswell be zombies, its too loud, you need to be drunk to sleep, everything was broken, and most importantly ITS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURES. DO NOT GO HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. DO NOT GO HERE.
