The Glowworm Backpacker is a nice little hostel, in the middle of Franz Josef « town » (which is basically only two streets, one with the backpackers and the others with some bars and places to book glaciers activities).
The kitchen is big, the owners give free soup (not too bad) everynight and there is nice couch to relax during the day.
The room are nice too : TV, ensuite bathroom, heater, even if the matress are a little bit too thin.
Big plus : the mini kitchen in the room to be able to make tea and keep your stuff in the room little fridge, really convenient.
The TV room with sky TV is good too and is a good way to loose time on rainy days (which is often in this area).
Only the dining room is a little bit small : some tables are missing during the « soup rush », so better be right on time !
Basically a good and well taking care of little hostel.More
