This hostel was so cozy that I actually opted NOT to go outside and do the tour I had been planning on doing. The lounge area had a big fire place that was kept and big comfy couches. instead of seeing the glacier I actually stayed behind and did puzzles and played board games in front of the fireplace! The staff was also very friendly, learned my name even though I was only there for one day.
