    I liked that the manager helped me find somewhere else to stay when he had to close down due to low number cause of weather and the virus outbreak. He got me a room across the street and payed the difference himself.

    The room and bathroom were GREAT for a 3 night's stay AMAZING (seriously) mattress. I've never slept on a more comfortable mattress in the past year of traveling as a digital nomad. Excellent desk to get some computer work done (!) Free soup every evening Hot tub

    There were some raccoons or possums rapping on the ceiling, an odd but harmless experience, and nothing the staff can really do much about :) Can openers didn't really work.

    The receptionist was pleasant

    The base of the bed was almost on the floor but surprisingly enough, the bed was quite comfortable. The whole place is run down and passed shabby. I was glad to leVe.

    I stayed at the dorms and everyone were super sociable. Great location in town. Great social area to meet other travelers from different countries. The free soup every evening was delicious. I will definitely consider coming back there on my next visit to Franz Joseph

    The room is small and the bed was a bit uncomfortable, but the overall experience was great!
