We had a great stay at the YHA Franz Josef! Very cosy atmosphere and a great place to stay when visiting the Franz Josef Glacier! It was just a little cold sometimes as the heater turned itself off after a little while.

Great kitchen and everybody likes free Wifi. However, our dorm was over booked and the people were unable to reach staff to rectify the matter, not helpful in the middle of the night.
If you've got no choice here, it's probably an acceptable one. the room is a mess and the kitchen is another. People are good to share here and the WiFi is the last good thing here.
Very comfy beds and a nice place to stay
Felt like a really big hostel. Unfortunately kitchen and common room wasn't big enough though. Had no were to sit in the evening when we wanting to chill and it was raining outside. Otherwise, an okay place.
Nice hostel. Nice staff. Rooms need a little bit more air, smells concentrated inside rooms.
This is probably one of the dirtier YHA's I have stayed in, staff seemed disinterested in cleaning it up but were otherwise helpful. Keeping kitchens and bathrooms clean would make a huge difference. Location was great, beds comfortable and bedrooms clean.
