We stayed for 2 nights in a double on suite room. Basic but comfy and sufficient room. Tea and coffee , towels etc provided. Good location. Tip, take your YHA members card for free Wifi. Well equipped hostel, big sitting room and also a tv lounge. Walls were a tad on thin size however was quiet after 10pm . I think every one gets turned playing out on the glaciers and retires early.
Glad we chose franz over fox as we had a drive to fox and it was very quiet and small and not as many facilities and things to do as Franz. Lake matheson is well worth a walk round and a visit to the cafe there.
