We spent 3 nights at the hotel, overall impression is ok, but certain details, as the absence of real cabinets or proper sidetables is counting negative for me. Personnel is really freindly and helpful, i am not sure if I would come back. very bad detail one of the beds was not prepared we had to do it.

I don't know why some complain about this being more of a Hotel than a Hostel, since "Hotel" is in the name. Anyway, I booked a large mixed dorm room here for two nights during my stay. It was nice and clean, private toilet and shower so you don't have to go walking the halls every time you need to... More

I was unsatisfied with my stay here. This is much more of a hotel than hostel, with kids and families running around. Location is inconvenient; expensive to take bus to town. Top bunk was impossible to try and make bed. Staff not very helpful.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 5-bed dorm, and really enjoyed it. Bed was comfortable, and a plus side, the room was very well heated, so I didn't felt cold at all even though it was during winter and temperatures outside were below zero degrees The hotel/hostel is slightly hard to locate from the main train station, but fortunately...

Stayed here for a night and the from had 4 beds and a decent bathroom. The price was right and the place was clean, the view of the mountain from the room was cool and there are restaurants nearby that are good (try urbankeller). Getting to the hotel via bus from the main station is easy but time consuming.

It was far from the train station but not that far from the main attractions in Salzburg. Instead of hostel, it is actually more like a hotel except you need to share room with others and cheaper price than a real hotel. The interior design was excellent, I stayed one night in a 6 females dorm and didnt feel crowded... More

The hotel was slightly difficult to locate from the S Bahn station, but later on my friends and I realised that there were 2 buses that took us from the city centre to right across the hotel. We subsequently took bus number 2 or 10 to the city centre and it was really convenient - but it would be advisable... More
