Hoopty but sick little place Apr 03, 2011
This place is all you can really ask for in Franz Josef. It's a little cold though, and it's only hit 6:30pm, so god only knows what midnight will bring us. I'm currently staying in a 6 bed, dorm, that has a shower, toilet and little kitchenette inside it. Basically, you don't have to leave this if you don't want to, which Mom and I probably won't.
It's about a 3 minutes walk to the shops and grocery store and all the pubs around. There's nothing really in this town, so you're going to be close to everything no matter where you stay.
We're only here for a night, but if we needed to stay longer I wouldn't move to another place. It's super tacky, but I really like it. If there was a fireplace and better heating in the room I could stay here for a while and just chill out of read some good books. This is my kind of scene.
The hot tub isn't very hot though, but that's probably because it's not housed in a very enclosed area. Oh well. Still pretty cool that they have one.
Stay here if you don't mind kicking it a little old school.
