Great little place in Franz Josef. Amazing value for money. Very backpacker style and you get to meet a lot of travellers. Everything is basic but available. Wifi gets spotty when lots of people use it but still functional. As long as you dont expect luxury, its a great place to stay. Not noisy at all. Stayed in the private room with ensuite.
