You can sleep for cheap, but don't expect more. The room was small with no extra's. The kitchen is too small and a mess, only 2 people can cook at the same time. You get free bread and coffee in the morning, but not enough knives and places to sit for everyone. After 2 nights we were glad to move... More

This hostel is really excellent. The management is very friendly, you're provided with free soup in the evening and free cereal and toast for breakfast in the morning. They also have really excellent wifi.

Shared a 4 bed dorm as it was what was available, beds were clean but noisy, could hear guests walking through corridor and through the next room . So if you must be here keep... More

The staff are vacant and the rooms are damp and musty. It wasn't good at all. Unless this place has a major overhaul, stay somewhere else. The rooms were dark and boxy and the shower/toilet was tiny. Glad we were only here for one night.

Value for money, cant complain much for its price. Nice clean place, with good toilets. But just too noisy as we can clearly hear the people above us walking and talking Bar was great with nice chaps. Laundry is limited to 3pm to 8pm.

Very short notice we looked for a room to stay for two nights. The only place which had affordable and vacant rooms. The room was very smal and smelled very odd. Not enough space to hang or put your stuff. Beds were very soft and some springes were sticking out. Staff at the reception is friendly. The included breakfast was... More

After booking a very late vacation, we found no accommodation in Fox Glacier or Franz Josef except Fox Glacier Inn....so swallowed our pride and booked a pod ensuite & thought 2 nights, it can't be that bad for £60 a night !!!! 😢 Upon arriving, you are met with a free soup voucher which sets the scene. The room is... More

We camped in the garden of this hostel for only 10$. It was awesome we had free wifi and the breakfast was really good, very much and a real variety of things (cereal, toast, jam, milk, butter, fruits, juice, coffee, tea). Everything was nice and clean, the kitchen was great and the staff friendly.

Even if the staff the reception is very helpful and great, the hostel is an average. I booked a bed in the 4 dorm ensuite room, 2 bunk beds, and the room was very tiny, no space for luggages and horrible mattress.
