I was seriously scared of all the bad reviews on Tripadvisor for this hut, but I can only say by being there myself that either things have changed radically, or they were never that bad to begin with FOR A REFUGE. I saw reviews like...เพิ่มเติม
Its as close to luxury you will get at 3800mtrs, theres no running water and no internet but youre on Mont Blanc FFS! The place is as clean as you need it to be for the amount of people that sleep in it!
The hut is quite new and very comfortable. However they had no running water in the toilets and they have no internet. For the price they charge per night. They should have these things.

Hi Jim (Bnb-Run2theHills),
It is striking how similar your experience at the Gouter hut was in July 2015. I have been there around the same time, and I have encountered the same attitude of Amélie Faure, who might be replaced now. I summarized that as: 'I don't care if you lie down and die'
I have just sent in my review on Tripadvisor, it is not yet published. My story is probably very recognizable to you. I put it there to find a place to let people publicly know.
I may warn you. I have also sent a report to the FFCAM, they did not even bother to respond! Not even after a reminder. That's incredible to me too. And it was another reason to publish publicly. What an arrogance!
Hope SOMEBODY takes notice. If it is not the staff, nor the FFCAM, then the potential guests. I hope that will improve their mentality in the long run.
