The staff are vacant and the rooms are damp and musty. It wasn't good at all. Unless this place has a major overhaul, stay somewhere else. The rooms were dark and boxy and the shower/toilet was tiny. Glad we were only here for one night.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback and I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay experience with us. I am surprised to hear about your feedback about the room and donot remember you mentioning it to our Reception staff. This is one of the comments that we do not hear very often. On the contrary, many of...

Value for money, cant complain much for its price. Nice clean place, with good toilets. But just too noisy as we can clearly hear the people above us walking and talking Bar was great with nice chaps. Laundry is limited to 3pm to 8pm.

Very short notice we looked for a room to stay for two nights. The only place which had affordable and vacant rooms. The room was very smal and smelled very odd. Not enough space to hang or put your stuff. Beds were very soft and some springes were sticking out. Staff at the reception is friendly. The included breakfast was...

After booking a very late vacation, we found no accommodation in Fox Glacier or Franz Josef except Fox Glacier Inn....so swallowed our pride and booked a pod ensuite & thought 2 nights, it can't be that bad for £60 a night !!!! 😢 Upon arriving, you are met with a free soup voucher which sets the scene. The room is...

We camped in the garden of this hostel for only 10$. It was awesome we had free wifi and the breakfast was really good, very much and a real variety of things (cereal, toast, jam, milk, butter, fruits, juice, coffee, tea). Everything was nice and clean, the kitchen was great and the staff friendly.

Even if the staff the reception is very helpful and great, the hostel is an average. I booked a bed in the 4 dorm ensuite room, 2 bunk beds, and the room was very tiny, no space for luggages and horrible mattress. Asked to change room and the guy at the reception was very helpful, giving me a bed in...

My partner and I stayed here over NYE as we were doing a glacier heli tour on New Years Day. Having never stayed in a hostel before, I was curious but also cautious as to what to expect. Pleasantly, we had a very comfortable queen (potentially king) sized bed and our own bathroom which is all we needed as we...

Only stay in the motel part of this backpackers, NOT the hostel part. The motel part has its own shower and bathroom and coffee making facilities. The bed is fine to sleep on and there is also a TV. NO fridge though. The shower pressure is TERRIBLE both in the motel rooms and the hostel rooms (we stayed in both)....
