The Franz Josef YHA is not exceptional but the facilities are adequate for travellers needs. I stayed there for a couple of nights (as I think most backpackers do, especially those doing the glacier day walk). The staff was friendly and helpful.
The 4 bed dorm is not very big, and the collective bathrooms are also a bit small and not as clean as I would like them to be. However, the other common areas are clean, spacious and pleasant. I have been to another backpacker in the village and I think the YHA facilities looked much better. Overall is a good hostel that does the job and I would stay there again.
