    Great place to stay

    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 trip from Queenstown to Franz Josef takes 8 hours and I expected 8 hours of boredom while Courtney slept. Well, Courtney did sleep but I got a fantastic trip. We had booked with Intercity but actually went on a Newmans Coach - that's not uncommon here, we booked through Naked Bus from Te Anau to Milford Sound but got a Tracknet bus.
