A short walk to all there is to do in Franz Josef (which is basically just the glacier) this is a bustling hostel with some cool features. Biggest kitchen I've ever seen at a hostel with dishtowels and soap for guest to use, and you can even get free canola oil from the front desk! Nice rooms, clean bathrooms, kitchen is kept tidy and clean. Great place to stay when in Franz Josef. Good internet.


Great facilities. Won't be staying in any dorms again due to snorers.


The beds came with 2 PILLOWS. Enough said. :) Great location and free wifi.


Felt welcome on check in.

Enjoyed staying here - very clean and good facilities . Enjoyed the sauna and television room after a cold day on the glacier. Would stay here again!
