One-night stays are rare to find during the main ski season. Loft Mountain Hostel is an exception as it provides complete flexibility, from the whole season to just one night. Our family needed a one-night stop-over on Friday, as we wanted to arrive early and fit in an extra day's skiing. My husband was somewhat surprised I had booked us... More

Nice facilities include complimentary hot drinks and large, clean, organised kitchen space. However the hostel is expensive and heavy on rules and fines. This hurt the atmosphere. The "rider's hostel" image seemed contrived, and they seem to use some upselling to try to get you to pay more.

I'm sorry you felt this way about our hostel. I would, however like to reply to your comments for the benefit of those reading your review, as some points are simply not true. - There is no up-selling. Each bed costs 25€/night off season and 30€ peak season regardless of the room (taxe de séjour is included). This is the... More

Well designed, well planed and well maintained. Extra plus for the food spares left from other travelers. Got our own room, as all beds were not full for the night. Not cheap, but Airbnb prices in the area were even higher. Simply the best hostel experience ever.

I stayed at the Loft regularly from December 2014-April 2015 and I couldn’t fault it if I tried. The location is excellent, being only 5-10 minutes away from the Arc-En-Ciel Funicular, which gives you direct access to the Les Arcs-Paradiski ski resort. It is less than 2 minutes away from the nearest supermarket, and about 10 minutes away on foot... More

I stayed just the one night and it was pleasant enough for the amount paid - clean, cheap and secure - however rated average as it didn't seem 'very good'. In addition I was informed I couldn't use the washing machine because the electricity was too expensive during daylight hours and those who reside in the hostel on a longer... More

I've stayed here twice for a weekend trip and can heartily recommend it. Location - The Loft is a 5-10min walk to the funicular from Bourg to LA1600 so no hassles at all getting there and back in the morning/afternoon. There's also a handy bar at the top of the funicular which you can meet at before heading down at... More

Everything was good about this place. Very clean and the staff was very friendly. I could do some laundry which was great. There was a lot of entertainment in the form of boardgames and video games but it was easy to be alone as well if you preferred that.

Just back from a long weekend at 'LoftBourg' with my brother and a friend. This is the second time I've stayed here and we wouldn't hesitate to return. Great feel about the place, Charley is lovely and Bourg St Maurice itself definitely has that something special.
