We stayed overnight at this place on the way to Franz Joseph. The place was quite old but clean. The owner was friendly. We didn't book but they have plenty space in the hostel. The room that we stayed in has that old musty smell but you get used to it once you inside. Stayed in 6 bed dorm. The kitchen was clean and has enough stove/pans etc. Free carpark beside the hostel. There is new world supermarket nearby. There aren't that many restaurant/takeaway place nearby. The town itself is pretty quiet as well. 1 night stay is enough.
