    The staff were extremely helpful with my planning! Thanks to Fabian especially, he really made my stay in Franz Josef! Besides this, the facility is clean and warm, it’s my favorite hostel!

    It was cute and the bonus free sauna between 6pm-10pm was nice. Perfect location in the town - short drive out to the glacier car park with stunning views in a clear day

    Not enough toilets and showers for the amount of people staying there. I had to go from my room upstairs all the way to the showers by the entrance because there were people using the upstairs and the second closest ones to my area also. Needs more bathroooms! Also, even though my lactose free milk was clearly labelled with my name, room number and date of departure someone still stole it!
