    As always the YHA was very good. Dorm and bathroom were clean, kitchen was big and well equipped, beds were comfy. As franz josef is a tiny town you can't really say much about the location but it was a 3 min walk to the store (and to pretty much everything else) It had a nice atmosphere and I met a lot of nice people there. I can definitely recommend staying there.

    Very nice Hostel, not far away from "city centre". Unfortunetely there was no popcorn and we never saw someone cleaning the kitchen. But overall it was great (the sauna is legend).

    Echt cooles Hostel mit ein paar Minuspunkten. Leider nur 2GB WLAN am Tag, ich konnte genau eine Folge Netflix gucken und dann war’s vorbei. Das war wahnsinnig nervig. Personal extrem hilfsbereit & nett!! Als ich da war war gerade Sturm und musste nen Tag länger bleiben, sie hatten aber für alle noch ein Bett und haben gratis Chips und Kekse verteilt, das war richtig Super. Sauberkeit im Bad leider unter aller Sau, also das war wirklich richtig widerlich, auch nachdem die Putzfrau da war.

    Sehr angenehmes Hostel mit top Ausstattung (u.a. Sauna) Von der Atmosphäre her bringt das Hostel nicht viel her. Aber da man hier sowieso nur 1-2Nächte für den Gletscher verbringt war das auch zweitrangig

    Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet. Und für die duschen gibt es für jeden frische Fußhandtücher. In den Zimmern gibt es Spinde in die sogar mein großer backpack gepasst hätte, aber leider ist das Fach mit der Steckdose so schmal das mein Adapter nicht reingepasst hat und alternativ gab es nur eine weitere Steckdose in dem 10bettzimmer. Und auch Sofas waren nur drei im Bereich des Ofens und weiter hinten in der Lounge allerdings habe ich dort schon nach wenigen Minuten gefroren.

    We had a double room which was ok. The staff was very very friendly. It was pretty clean, but the carpet is quite old and it smelled a bit. Kitchen has everything you need. Nice sitting area. Unfortunately some food was stolen out of the fridge, which is not a fault of the hostel, but is really sad... because we are all travelling, aren't we?!
