Institut St Sebastian is right in downtown Salzburg, just a 5 minute walk to the old city, the Dom and the train to Festung Hohensalzburg. It's located on the grounds of St Sebastian church -- where Mozart's father and wife are buried. The room was quiet, comfortable and very clean. We left the windows open for a breeze and to... More

This was probably my favorite place to stay on our two week trip, even with twin beds! Incredibly clean, lots of room, quiet, and very helpful at front desk. Bathroom was very clean and well stocked. Air conditioning was great, but we still slept with the windows open to hear the bells. Great place, I would definitely stay there again!

We loved St. Sebastion institute. Yes it was a dorm room with a private bath and it was cheap. But the building, cemetery, church and grounds were interesting and beautiful. The location was suburb . Shops and restaurants right outside the door with cobbled streets and a few short blocks to everything of interest in Salzburg. As there is only... More

I studied abroad through AIFS for a month, in which we stayed here for 4 weeks. The best experience. Great location, front desk was so helpful and friendly, wifi, cleaned the rooms, felt so safe. I was given keys, one of which is to a small fridge and cabinet to store my groceries. It was right in the heart of... More

This is not even a hotel, so don't expect that environment. You're staying here because it has a fabulous location and its cheap. With that said, it does a great job of being what it is, but by its very nature it has some quirks. As someone else mentioned, refrigerators are compartmentalized with locks. The rooms are fairly spartan, but... More

It's comparable to a youth hostel in terms of facilities. The rooms are basic, but clean and functional, with shared cooking facilities. Breakfast was okay, but not great, in a somewhat austere dining room. It's a Catholic church, after all. The price was reasonable, the staff very friendly, but the location is fabulous. It's on the NE side of Salzburg,... More

Friendly desk staff communicated with us prior to our visit and welcomed us on our arrival. Rooms were basic (institutional). The facility also accommodates university students, so think dorm-like, but clean and quiet. There is no daily maid service, except that our trash was emptied. Our group had two rooms and neither was supplied with soap, so I assume that... More

ISS is very institutional which reminded me of being back in school. It is a great value for the location. Everything is within walking distance whether the grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, Mirabell gardens or the old town. The have little lockers in the fridge so ask for a key if you plan to store anything there. They provide utensils, pots... More

This hostel is my least favorite of my Europe trip. The hostel itself is pleasant. It's small and quiet, the breakfast is nice, and the accommodations are cozy but comfortable. However, the desk attendant here was utterly unhelpful for any questions we had as tourists, and worst of all seemed totally uninterested in helping us. The hostel also has a... More
