Good clean hostel. Deluxe dorm rooms are very good and the bunk beds are very sturdy. Good friendly atmosphere in the lounge areas and a great place to stay for a few days.

It was pretty cold in the room and one window didn't close properly. The heating wasn't sufficient. Free breakfast and soup was good. Free wifi didn't work well.

Nice hostel with free soup in the evening. Friendly staff made my stay very enjoyable

The staff here were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The free breakfast and soup were also really good and there was plenty for everyone. The TV room is also a really nice area to chill in in the evening, especially when you can be in Franz Josef for a few days waiting to get on the glacier.

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in in New Zealand. Great atmosphere, cosy tv room with blankets, free popcorn and soup.. You get the feeling you're being looked after a bit more than most hostels. The staff were amazing, I had a friend who had some bad news while we were there and they couldn't have been kinder or more accommodating under circumstances. Thankyou, it was really appreciated. Would recommend anyone stay there!

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at, mainly because of the staff! They are so welcoming and really make you feel at home. They do their best to make sure you have an amazing time in Franz Josef with a ton of great deals. The place was very clean, free unlimited wifi, and nice rooms.

Good hostel, good location, solid facilities. Mix up regarding the dorm rooms, got downgraded for the first night, staff not overly friendly regarding room changes. Was resolved with staff who apologised and offered tips for the following days travel, but tips were not necessarily accurate. Overall, would stay again but would email/call/not book with HostelWorld to ensure the correct room type.

Have thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights stay at glow worm. The staff are AMAZING! They have made our stay an unforgettable experience. Benjamin the entertainment organizer couldn't be nicer, teaching us how to make sushi, taking us out on tours an giving us chocolate fountain :) can't recommend this hostel more! If coming to franz Josef (we were on the kiwi bus!) definitely stay here!
