  • We enjoyed our stay at the cottages! Girl at reception was helpful and working very hard. Cottages were fairly clean and the upgrade to an ensuite room for free was nice! The free soup for dinner was delicious and the hot tub and free wifi was a good addition. Close to glacier hot pools and other attractions. We would recommend this hostel for those staying in the Franz Josef area!

  • Stayed in a dorm for two nights. Top bunk don't have any rail so one could easily fall out. One of the bunk beds that we had had no ladder so we had to use a chair. Soup in the evenings is good as is breakfast. Wifi was also good.

  • Although a cheap night in Franz Josef, glow worm cottages seemed a little run down in massive need of a deep clean and a facelift. When I arrived I was warmly greated by two kind members of staff who directed me to my room, the room itself was quite kitted out with mugs, a mini fridge and a toaster however these all needed a great clean! The Lino in the ensuite was peeling off the floor and the water trickled from the showers. There are many other good packers in Franz Josef.

  • The staff was awesome, and I loved the veggie soup every night. The dorm I stayed in was also really nice. Looking forward to returning!
