Le Petit Baroudeur
Reviewed 22 February 2013

This is a lovely backpackers, really clean, well laid out with great cooking facilities, hot showers and tidy rooms, 4 of us took a six bed dorm and it was excellent. The staff were really helpful and friendly and there is also a nice lounge to watch TV or read.

They have parking next door and a dry room for Ski/Snowboard storage.

The great thing about this place too is the location, its right next to the gondola, there is a hire shop and supermarket next door and the train station is 200 yards away but you don't hear any noise.

As a place to Snowboard or Ski I thought there were quite a few decent runs and a couple of snow parks, hardly any queues either.

Id come back here, really good.

I stayed her with two friends on one of the busiest weekends of the season and yet was able to get a bed two days in advance.

Catherine, the manager, was extremely helpful and friendly speaking both fluent French and English.

The 10 bed shared dorm was clean and modern, and the same goes for the bathroom. The kitchen was well-equipped and spotless. There's a great shoes off / slippers on policy.

Right next to the ski lift, ticket office, 'Champery' train stop. a Migros supermarket, and a selection of equipment rental shops. A 5 minute walk uphill and you're in the center of town.

Safe ski storage (albeit down the hill a bit) and free lockers for valuables behind reception. The hostel itself is very secure with keycard access to the door.

We stayed at Le Petit Baroudeur for the weekend with a group of friends and had a great time. This is a 5* hostel ! Catherine, the hostess, could not do enough for us. She is very knowledgeable about Champery and the region, and can give you very useful tips ! Great welcoming smile and lovely tasting daily fruit tarts ! The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom facilities are great. Le Petit Baroudeur is very well located next to the cable car station, the grocery shop and the sports centre. Great, comfortable, clean and friendly place if you don't want to break the kitty.

This new and nice hostel is definitely value for the money. Situated right next to the train station and next to the gondola, it is perfect for a weekend or over night stay. We were there in January and the place was almost empty - we got a room with a days notice. The personel is very friendly and would be happy to assist you with anything. The only thing I am missing is exclusive rooms (they only have dorms) and a more filling breakfast. I will definitely come back to this hostel and the wonderful village Champery.
