We stayed here for two nights and it was great! It is sort of attached to a used to be important fortress! That makes it so much more unique :D The walk with our heavy backpacks all the way up the hill was definitely worth it when we arrived! The view was stunning and looked just like the postcards!

This place is in a nice location with a great view of the city (minus the fact that it's a hike to get to...which can be creepy if you're alone). The beds are comfy but the rooms are quite tiny. The staff is not so nice & helpful - except the young guy. Everything was super clean. For the price,... More

Despite the lovely view from the mountain, this hostel has NOTHING to offer. Check in took a long time, they had no locker keys for us, most unfriendly people I have ever met, rooms/bathroom had beetles, and we could not check out in the morning as there was no one there! We tried to call the manager and knock of... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during a 2 week Europe vacation. We booked early and were able to get the private room. They only have one room that has only 2 beds in it. I realize that is not the typical hostel experience, but for couples, it was definitely worth it! Our room had the picture... More

We booked this hostel through email, specifying we wanted two beds for two nights. We got this confirmed. When we arrived we were ignored for 30 minutes. We didn't know where to go or what to do so we just stood there and nobody talked to us. Finally someone talked to us and sat us down. The owner/manager/whatever called Olaf... More

Despite booking a room at the Stadtalm a month in advance, when I arrived, I did not have a room and was forced to sleep in the dining room, meaning I needed to be up before 9 so that they could serve breakfast. Initially, I was told I would receive a reduced rate, but when I did change and get... More

It might be a tough hike to get to the top of Monchsberg with heavy luggage, but the view from the Stadtalm Naturfreundehaus is something that not even a 5-star hotel can match. Even if you aren't a guest, it's worthwhile to visit just for the great photo opportunity. At €19 it's very budget-friendly to backpackers, and spacious lockers are... More

We stumbled into the restauraunt portion of this hostel-hotel during a recent walk around Salzburg. It is a funky and cozy little place with an amazing view out over Salzburg. Meals ordered cost between 7 Euro and 13 Euro, were well presented, traditional Austrian food, really flavorfull and all around delicious. Each of the three of us ordered a different... More

This small hostel had an amazing view and a lot of charm. The breakfast was simple, fresh, and delicious. We really enjoyed an excellent view of Salzburg sitting in the corner breakfast nook. The rooms/bathroom facilities are small but definitely adequate for those looking to just sleep and clean up. I think it's a good value for Salzburg. The owner-operator... More

Stayed at this hostel for 3 nights recently, and it was awesome!!! Absolutely love the view from the hostel and it's definitely the most value-for-money hostel I've ever stayed in...and I've stayed in a good share of them! Let's start with the location. Ok, I think the location is both its strength and its weakness. It's located almost as an... More
