Decent hostel in close proximity to supermarket and cafes. Close to naked bus stop.


Door to my building was never locked. Staff entered room when I wasn't there to empty trash...I don't like this because they could have gone through my belongings.

Staff were lovely and very helpful. The towels are large and fluffy - give them a try.


Franz Josef montrose is a cosy hostel to stay at. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Only downside is wifi is only in the common areas and the showers leak everywhere. But otherwise, a nice hostel :)


Nice hostel. Staff is very helpful and dedicated. It is clean and cheap. Only disadvantage was the very soft mattress.


Our stay at Montrose was awesome. The beds were the comfiest we've had throughout New Zealand, and the rooms were spacious. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful whenever possible. The common areas and bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the days, and there was plenty of free entertainment on offer. Even though we were not able to go onto the glacier, this place lifted our spirits, as it was like home =)

Our experience in the hostel was great! Probably one of the best places where we stayed. We felt secure, welcome and happy there. The staff was very welcoming, the hostel is clean and has perfect location. Strongly recommend.

Staff were amazingly friendly, Couldn't do enough for you! Really spacious common room area with loads of places to chill. Good internet. Clean rooms. Can't complain with anything.


We had a really gold time at Montrose. The stuff was super helpful (he even parked bis car around the corner to make space). We got cheap laundry facilities, dorm for 20 bugs, Sauna and even a brush to clean our shoes. I Highly recommend this accommodation in which we even felt Kind of home. Thanks!


A great hostel! One of the best I've ever stayed in. Caesar is an amazing host, very kind and helpful. The rooms were spacious. Two clean kitchens to use and a large communal area. Thanks Ceasar :) we highly reccomend this hostel for anyone thinking of going to Franz.


Big meeting room that is nice to chat with other travellers, but a little hard to heat so it was mostly quite cold there.. No separate bathrooms for male/female.
