...and I would have given it 5 stars but they blew it in the last 30 minutes by not having hot water for a shower. I might understand this later in the day, but no hot water at 8am??
Otherwise this YHA is pretty close to perfect. Situated close to the village shops and bars, restaurants etc, the hostel is also close to some nice walks if you don't have a car to get to the more distant ones. Also close to the thermal pools and spa if you feel you need to unwind.
The glacier itself is just 2km away from the hostel - walkable and there are some nice hikes around that area too.
The hostel's communal lounge is comfy (with lots of sockets to charge those pesky phones and laptops) and the kitchen is clean and well equipped.
I found the staff to be friendly and helpful and with my one cold morning shower aside, I can't recommend this hostel highly enough for your stay at Franz Josef.More
