A very vibrant 3 star hotel. We had a comfortable, stylish room on the top floor (5th) with a balcony and nice views. Comfortable bed and nice bathroom. An extra cost for a good breakfast. The hotel has bar facilities and also accommodates backpackers so there was a well equipped kitchen including washing machine and dryer that is available to... More

Stayed for two nights. Friendly and nice staff. Good breakfast at a nominal cost. Free car parking and safe location. They have guest kitchen which we did not use but saw lot of young folks preparing and cooking their own food ;-). Hallways and doors are painted trademark red and kind of trendy and different ambiance. Nice and cool!

First off, the location is hardly city centre and a fair way away from the main train station and the actual city centre. Its easy enough to get into the city using the bus but due to the name we really felt like we had been deceived by its location as clearly this was an additional cost when we assumed... More

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your feedback! Having read through your complaint, I would like to referr to some of your points.

We arrived expecting a typical hostel and were pleasantly surprised! There is a large bar and common room area on the first floor with an adjacent kitchen that can be used by guests. The room was well maintained and cleaned daily! I can only speak for the room we stayed in (which was classified as part of the hostel, not*... More

The hotel was very clean and nice, they even had a luggage storage room that was helpful for us who arrived early. The only negative is check-in is 3:00pm and we arrived around 10:00am, we figured as long as there was a room available we would be able to check-in early, and if not we would store our luggage and...

This hostel is clean, comfortable, and affordable. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast in the morning is good. The only negative side to this hostel is the location. It's a good 20-30 minute walk from the train station and Old Town. If you're looking to walk Salzburg, I would suggest a more central hotel. However, if you don't... More

We stayed here for one night in May 2015. The hotel is about 2km outside of central Salzburg but there are buses running from directly outside the hotel if it's raining and you don't fancy the walk. The hotel itself is a cross between a backpacker hostel and a travelodge. This sounds off putting but don't be. It is clearly... More

The hotel is clean and modern and has what I think the kids would call a "hip" décor. My husband and I spent two nights in a Superior Double Room. We paid a total of 328 euros (with taxes) which I thought was decent for what we were getting. The bed is basically just two twin mattresses put together which... More
