We stayed in the Franz Josef YHA for two nights as part of a three week trip around NZ South Island. We booked a double ensuite room which was fine although a little tired and dirty in the corners ! The hostel was nice with a large communal area and kitchens. The laundry room was cheap but too small and there was always a queue to use the computers. Just a short walk from the centre of Franz Josef village and the hostel had negotiated lots of great deals with local companies for discounted food, drink and tours. Staff were friendly but not all of them were very efficient resulting in some pretty long queue's at reception. I would use the hostel again but I have certainly stayed in better hostels.
