The manager is really helpful. We're surprised there is breakfast. Everything is new n clean. If only there is a shelf in the bathroom to put down the towel n clothing. But I'll certainly go back n recommend it.

Overall- the location is great and the staff is friendly. There are issues with the facility... The fridges need to be cleaned out, it's like a puzzle game trying to fit your food in and not knock someone's else's uncovered plate of food or open milk container. They also need more toasters- only having two wasn't enough for the amount of people staying. Also, my bunk bed was missing a plank so when I would get up on the bed, it would cave in.

I had been to two hostels in the area, and this was by far my favorite. Hospitable staff with great recommendations, loved the common area, and I soaked in the sauna after a long day. Comfortable beds and a sheet and blanket. Loved my stay. Thank you!

The perfect hostel the owner is so considerate and really knows how to keep backpackers happy!!great kitchen area it's really big and always clean. Free wifi is just such a bonus!!the security is brilliant free parking right in the middle of town aswel. The breakfast and soup are just amazing. The rooms are clean and the heater is perfect for when it gets colder. We had the best time in franz josef and that was mostly down to the hostel thank you!!!!

There was one showers for 4-5 rooms for 4?preople each, makin toilets and showering difficult. No top sheets were offered on the linens, and the whole place was musty and wet smelling. Great location, though the town is small enough that any spot is reachable by foot. Not the best experience, especially after reading others reviews I expected better.

Location is great. Staff was extremely helpful and the free soup was awesome! Hostel facilities are not the best (a bit old) but in general is okay.

Very good hostel, clean, friendly, kitchen could be slightly bigger and do with a re-vamp but otherwise excellent. Fantastic that there is free breakfast and soup on an evening.

Cesar the host was exceptional making us feel so welcome and looked after! I could have stayed here for weeks. The staff were all excellent and the free evening soup was really delicious. We really enjoyed our stay and would rate the hostel highly!

Great layout and very interesting hostel. Location couldn't be beat, and the vibe of the place was much preferrable to the cookie-cutter chain hostels found elsewhere. The soup and breakfast was a very nice touch, even if i didn't partake every day.

We booked a private room which put us in the "lodge" not the hostel. It was super clean and almost like a hotel which we enjoyed. Unfortunately there was not much of an atmosphere since it had a hotel style in the lodge. I'm guessing the hostel was better though. Facilities were great. Cleanest hostel/lodge we went to all trip. Only complaint is the family above us that was making loud and mysterious thumping and banging noises all night preventing us from sleeping well.

Its a very clean hostel with a nice lounge area with a lot of sofas and sky tv for a wide range of movies. The free soup for dinner was delicious. The sauna is very small and not very hot, so you dont get thetypical sauna experience, but its good for warming up when its cold outside. The stuff is friendly and the hostel has a very relaxing atmosphere. I would definitely come back and highly recommend this hostel.
