I was with a group of 6 who stayed at Boardercamp in mid March 09 for 3 nights. To be clear, Boardercamp has two lodging options: a hostel and a large group dormitory. We stayed in the hostel.
Djambo, the owner, was a very accommodating and knowledgeable host. He was an excellent correspondent via email prior to our trip. He provided rental skis to us for a reasonable price so all we had to rent at the mountain were boots. He also provided discounted multi-day lift tickets. We arrived late the first night and he still served us dinner. He requires electronic funds transfer to secure a reservation and that suprised me and worried me a little. But once we arrived and I got a feel for the place and for Djambo I had no worries at all and it worked out perfectly.
Mostly Germans were staying there and all the guests were extremely friendly and sociable. Hanging out in the common room was a very pleasant way to spend our evenings - which was nice b/c otherwise you'd have to drive about ten minutes to Laax to reach nightlife.
Breakfast was coffee/tea, cereal, meat, cheese, bread and some fruit. And yes you can make a sandwich or two for the slopes if you like.
All 3 dinners were excellent. They accommodated our vegetarian with a tasty option too. Dinner is served in a restaurant about a 5 minute walk from the hostel. Although one night for dinner we enjoyed cheese fondue in the hostel.
Free wireless internet so feel free to bring a laptop. Bedding is provided but you should bring your own towel if possible.
The hostel has 2 or 3 bathrooms so sometimes there is a wait for showers - par for the course with hostels. The bathrooms were very clean. We slept in bunk beds, a 4-bed room and a 2-bed room.
I can happily say that all 6 of us REALLY enjoyed this place and the people that we met there. If you enjoy hostelling, I highly recommend paying Djambo a visit at Boardercamp. It also didn't hurt our experience that the snow and ski conditions in Laax/Flims were amazing!
