Room with a glacial view

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 15, 2009

The Franz Josef Top 10 is very conveniently located close to the village and about 6km from the glacier, but away from the hustle and bustle of tourist busses and arctic-clad backpackers.

We bunked in a 'Deluxe' basic unit, which came with a bunk bed (double at the bottom, single at the top), duvet, pillows, bar fridge, toaster, kettle, table and two chairs. It was nice having the little porch outside, on which we sat and had snacks while peering out towards the billowing clouds over the glacier.

Shared facilities include kitchen, dining, laundry and global gossip cards are available for phone or internet use.

Unique Quality: Location.

Set in a very quiet & serene environment with rainforest behind, this is a cosy hostel. They have rooms ranges from twin to multishare & family rooms. Well equiped and rather spacious kitchen open directly to the dining area. Other facilities includes bike storage, pool table, coin operated laundry, tv lounge, internet service and so on...

Your indoor entertainment @ night... try the free video night.

Unique Quality: Sauna, drying room...

Right beside the Waiho River with dorm style rooms, small units and campsite facilities in a prime location. We did camp for the first night, but after it refused to stop raining and sleeping in a pond just wasn't practical, we upgraded to a double room.
The shared kitchen can get very crowded with many folk fresh off the 'Kiwi Experience' bus. We quietly borrowed some pots and pans and cooked in the non-crowded (no equipment) kitchen.
Wise to book ahead.
