Chateau Backpackers & Motels

Franz Josef

Surrounded by rainforest and mountains, Chateau Backpackers & Motels offers an outdoor fire pit, BBQ facilities and a guest lounge with a fireplace. What a great hostel! Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Good facilities, a bit dated sure, but everything was functional and clean. They even had extra bath mats outside showers for people to change wet ones into. The free soup & breakfast are awesome! Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and apparently muffins (maybe that was a one time thing?) available free of charge too. Comfy beds with curtains for privacy. Loads of different spots for hanging out. Such great value for money would definitely recommend
