    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 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.
