Friendly helpful staff, free simple breakfast and evening soup. Clean basic accommodation. Use of hot tub (free but pump is broken so nice for hot soak only). Parking next to own unit. Use of communual kitchen and lounge (although kettle, fridge, microwave and toaster in unit). Easy walk to main street for restaurants, helicopter flights and one of the walks, 10 minutes drive to the glacier walks.
the wifi was weak: quite often disconnected.
For the ones contemplating a stay in Franz Josef that are looking for a pleasant stay that won’t break your bank account lean towards this one. We thought this was fabulous and friendly.
Feel warm with the hot soup provided
prefer to have more toilet as we have 3 rooms sharing one toilet (shower room is sufficient)
The accommodation is very cozy and friendly. It starts with some lollies atreception over the free popcorn and the free soup and breakfast. Great hot tub as well, especially good for rainy days where you can't really do anything at Franz Josef village. We rarely felt so relaxed in a hostel in New Zealand.
The mattress was way too thin...I could feel the bed underneath it. Although my mother didn't seem to have the same problem.
With a stay at Glow Worm Accommodation in Franz Josef Glacier, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Westcoast Wildlife Centre and Glacier Hot Pools. Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
