Dear Tripadvisor user, KINDLY DONOT POST THE SAME COMMENTS FROM DIFFERENT IDs. Kindly read the answer to your fake allegations that I have given in the previous review. And we will be sending you the bill shortly for destroying our hostel by getting bed bugs.

The plan this time around was a Christmas road trip inspired by Top Gear to cover the breadth of New Zealand, with a good stay at Fox Glacier for enjoying natures beauty at its best. Since we wanted to spend a good part of the budget on travelling, we refrained from the usual stay at a 5 star or boutique...

We booked a suite online for $250 per night, the most expensive room during our 3 week South Island tour. At this price we were really expecting something a bit special. What a shock! The room opened onto a narrow, dark, messy concrete path littered with electrical wires, a wheel barrow and a junked drying rack. Horrible. On arrival I...

This place is not worth 150$! I had a private room with toilet and shower. Only one lamp in the room (cealing) The wi-fi is so bad it's rediculus!! Could barely open up a e-mail... If it had cost me 75$ I would still be disappointed...

We knew it's a backpacker place, but as the other places in Fox and Franz Josef were fully booked, we booked for a double at €160 per night. Soon we discovered why it was the only place with a room... The double room consisted in a bed and a chair. That's it! Not even a table lamp exist. The matress...
