  • I got a very unforgettable moment visiting franz joseph. Yha is undoubtedly a great budget hostel to stay. It provides you with a clean, cosy room, comfortable shower room and cool laundry facility. It also has a lovely kitchen where everyone can mingle and sharing their stories with people from walks of life. Most important thing, the place is only withing walking distance to tourist attractions. Will definitely give a 5 stars rate for yha franz joseph!. 5

  • We only stayed one night in a double bed (no ensuite), but would loved to have stayed longer. The kitchen/dining/lounge room had great facilities and there was always room to cook or sit in front of the fire. We enjoyed using the tv room and all the times that i used the female shared toilets, i only bumped into someone else in there once. There is a bit of noise that carries from the upstairs rooms, but nothing that kept us awake. The room was tidy and we were warm. The office girl was really nice, answered our questions and went out of her way to help. We'd love to come back if we are ever in the area! . 5

  • The bed was comfy and the facilities good. The room smelt quite badly though of damp or cat wee. Quite a few older travellers and people tend to keep to themselves. Would stay there again. 5

  • Our bedroom and ensuite were clean and tidy. The rainforest surrounding the backpackers is very pretty. The staff were friendly and helpful. We found the communal kitchen area to be a little messy. Overall this was a nice place to stay. 5
