Very spacious hostel, two kitchens and a good eating area. The dorms were spacious and I was in a six bed mixed dorm, but it didn't feel like it, because there was so much floor space between the bunks. I noticed there were no ladders on the bunk beds, just a weird step, so I'm not sure how the people... More

I initially booked a dorm room, but after a bad day and a bad nights sleep, I just wanted some peace and quiet. The guys at reception went out of their way to change my stay, add the extra I owed, minus my deposit and not make a fuss. Even coming to find me to refund me when I overpaid.... More

All you need in Franz Joseph, and reasonably priced. Friendly staff, a fabulous kitchen and dining area, freshly made and a delicious pumpkin soup the night we stayed made the stay enjoyable. We would stay here again.

Clean. Centrally located. Daily housekeeping. Free breakfast. Free soup in the evening. Free unlimited WiFi. Free parking. I can go on and on and on about the good value of this motel but what really impressed me was the committed customer service. Extending their courtesy by bending over. When I told them I don't like pumpkin and tomato soup, on... More

I give you a short summary: Friendly staff Free unlimited wifi Free breakfast Free soup Free movies The best: free popcorn! And the price for all that is surprisingly low 🤘🏼😁 Stayed most of my time in rainy Franz Josef inside watching films and eating popcorn. Almost felt like a lazy winter day back home :) Thanks!

I love the lounge area, the big sofa and the layout of the place! It makes me feel really comfortable and feels like home! There's 2 kitchens available so you do not really have to wait long. They also provide free soup every night which is a bonus! The room for the 4bed mixed dorm is clean and so is... More

We arrived at the hostel and were pleasantly surprised to say the least. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, explaining to us in detail how the hostel worked (e.g kitchen times etc). We arrived in our 6 bed dorm which was lovely and spacious, with a lovely thick and clean duvet. The whole place just had a nice, cosy... More
