Judging by what people say about other places in Franz Josef, this is probably one of the best options.
i had a single room, it was very basic (nothing but a bed, chair and a small mirror) but for some reason it felt good and comfy.
the kitchen is big, so is dining area and a fireplace lounge. This hostel does have a nice atmosphere.
wifi is $10 a day, towel for rent is only $1.
ah, and they got a lovely little sauna which is free. that was cool yeah.
located pretty well.. you actually can get a bad location in such a small place like Franz Josef :)
