First of all; what really makes this place good is the lovely owner (?) who is so helpful, friendly and nice. Exellent service from him all the time!
The hostel is all right to stay in for a couple of nights. I can imagine longer would be a bit difficult. The place is quite big, which doesn't make it very cosy at all. It's not very well planned: there is one tiny kitchen in what's almost a hall way, and then there is a bigger on within the Tv lounge. It's not very smart to have those connected. It gets quite crowded and messy, but it works all right.
The biggest problem with the place is that there is far too few toilets/showers. Our room was located just beside on of them, and from 8.00 PM to 2.00 AM it was occupied constantly! People were watching in the hall way so they could slip in before someone else took it. If you want to take a shower, do so during the day, because in the morning or evening you can forget it!
The location is good, but Franz Josef is so small that everything thats in the village has a good location. It is just behind the "night club", so if you have a room on that side, you can count on hearing that pretty well at night.
Our room, a double was ok, clean and nice. However, I really missed something to put or hang things on. The only thing in the room, except for the bed, was a plastic chair.
