Thank you to the team at Fox Inn for extending such warm hospitality. Easy booking process and check in facilities. The room was warm and cosy. Clean sheets and a tidy space to make us feel at home. We hope to come back!

Excellent location, clean, budget accommodation with helpful friendly staff and restaurant right on the premises if you can't be bothered cooking.Kitchen really well set out with everything you need for your own use. Great mix of travellers. Very good showers/toilet areas.

Very clean,cozy and well located. The use of space is intelligent and proximity to market. Good wifi coverage all around the hostel. The best thing is very friendly and helpful staff, specially the owner(HT).

The hostel has a large bar/restaurant, which offers discounts to people staying in the hostel. There is also...

Really liked this place. Friendly and helpful staff, clean facilities, solid pizza, good wifi coverage and spacy carpark. Altogether with decent free soup and free hot tub it's no doubt a great value for just 20NZD. Not to mention it was the only hostel in Fox Glacier that let me stay in my own van overnight.
