This is probably my favourite hostel in NZ yet. Atmosphere was great, I think the free soup every night really brought people together and got everyone socializing. Everything was clean, ensuite bathrooms great. Would highly recommend!

By far the best hostel we have stayed in on our travels in New Zealand! Benjamin puts his heart and soul into creating a relaxed, personal and fun atmosphere where he takes the time to get to know each person individually. Every detail in the hostel is considered and it is clear he has put a lot of thought into his guest experiences. We will be making an excuse to come back to Franz Josef just to get to stay here again! Also thanks to Jackie!
