This is probably the worst stay we ever had in NZ so far. Since it was Christmas time we couldn't find any other accommodation, so had to go with what we got. We booked an en-suit private room. The carpet was wet and dirty and the bed wasn't very clean either. We felt sick since we had hardly any air...

The only good thing in this hostel is the bed with curtains, and plugs and light for each bed; and the location is good too but Fox Glacier is not that big anyway. Besides that, the staff is the worst staff ever, especially the Indian girl who is at the restaurant and who did the check in, she just looks...

This was not a cheap place and while the room was clean the walls were paper thin and staff not very helpful. Had to leave a $20 deposit for room key and could not get back until the next am when they opened at 8AM. This was only choice because we booked late. Would not stay there again nor recommend.

No comment to make on accommodation, management, food because we haven't experienced any of them...what we have experienced in past two evening into the small hours of the morning is noise!...we booked into fox glacier lodge,( sits adjacent to Sir Cedick!) for three nights to savour a nice slice of luxury and some needed peace and quiet! The thump, bang,...

Stayed here for one night and it was better than expected. The quad rooms are very small and the beds are the only places to sit. There is mould on the windows however the beds seem clean. The bathrooms are also clean but the floor gets extremely wet. The staff are helpful at the bar and the drinks are a...

We stayed at room 5, next to toilet and laundry room. Sound proof are so bad that we could basically hear all the noise from toilet, laundry room and people who stay up stair of our room. Whenever they are people walking by (either in front of our room or on the upstairs) we sound the sounds very loudly. Feels...

Where to start, the welcome by the owners is far from welcome and rude!The room was tiny and the curtains were moldy. Bathrooms dirty and only one shower with warm water at the ladies. In short, don't go!

I am happy to read that I am not the only person who got treated badly by these people. It's a long story about a hostel without a conscious. I made a booking through booking.com with this hostel and in the afternoon of my arrival they send me a rude email, asking me to find something else because of a...

The "rooms" and pods were nice. Good location, facilities and service. The one downside was a somewhat poorly organized kitchen. Too few utensils and working stoves. Come back? Yes, probably. Due to a mishap we were forced to change rooms, the staff handled that perfectly.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the appreciation for our facilities. Since, its a busy season one of the issue we are facing is all the guests coming to the Kitchen at the same time. We are trying our best to curb this by putting a time slot for different floors so that everyone can use the kitchen comfortable. Looking forward...

Very rude and unpleasant management/owners. They treat the backpackers who work for them like slaves. Rooms and facilities are covered in mold, really grose bathrooms. No hot water in women showers. Owner talks bad about guests at the phone in public.....don't ever stay here!!!! Just keep driving to Franz Josef
