    One of the nicest hostels I’ve ever stayed in! The kitchen was by far the cleanest I’ve seen, the common area was big and the TV actually worked! The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the bathrooms were individual. It is a great location close to the glacier, shops, restaurants and the Kiwi Sanctuary. Definitely the best hostel I’ve stayed in so far!

    This hostel is very big with loads of space, but it was quiet during my stay which meant it felt quite empty (though I suspect this is down to the time of year and road closures because of the storm, rather than the hostel.) It was all very clean and the showers were great! However the light in the bathroom near rooms 15/23 appeared to be connected to a motion sensor which isn't too helpful for the bathroom/shower where you don't move around very much! Free breakfast was great!!!

    Only stayed for one night but had a nice stay! The only thing that let it down is that we could hear people walking/talking/closing doors through the walls, the interior also has quite a dated feel to it but overall I'm glad we.chose to stay here

    Very Good

    My stay at FJ Montrose was nice, as I had a dorm all to myself. I was there when the bridge washed out, so there were only a handful of guests, which impacted the atmosphere. The facility is a bit dated, and could use with a good sprucing up, but the staff was always hard at work cleaning and keeping it up as best as they could. For the price (comparable to the other hostels, some of which were more updated), I thought it would be a bit more updated, but it was fine for 1 night.
