          We had a twin room (one double bed, one single) with ensuite and kitchenette for two nights. The room was lovely; a little timeworn but very comfortable. The hostel is very friendly, lovely staff and seems to run events for guests - they put on a $5 BBQ our first night. The wifi was free and unlimited but tended to drop out, although its worth talking to the staff at reception if this happens, they will try to help. There is a free spa which we didn't try but it seemed to be well patronised. The communal areas are large, comfortable and well set up. They offer free soup at 6pm and free breakfast. All in all, a really nice place for a very good price.

          But at least the hostel is cool. Also a Spa and lots of games. A bit small dorms but nice place...if the sun shines. And if you are there in the high season. But no problems with the hostel. And of course BBH :-)

          Our room was decorated in an interesting 'ski lodge' style and had a good kitchen area and en-suite bathroom. When we asked about WiFi, we were given a free card to give us a days internet access. Amazing views of the mountains.

          The drive from Greymouth wasn't long which made a nice change as we've been spending a lot of time travelling since we left Rotorua. The views on the drive to Franz Josef were so beautiful. The clear, bright blue waters and snow peeked mountains were just incredible and we ended up stopping loads as we went along! On the drive into the town of …

          Hello all,

          We took the rather long jump on a bus up to Franz Josef on monday, not too far in miles but suddenly it was like we were up in the coromandel again, after the vast dramatic and often barren landscape on the east of the south island hitting the west side we were suddenly in rainforest, mountains everywhere and roads winding up …
