As you will see from other reviews, this is not a real hotel, it probably is a students residence during the school year. But don't be afraid to go there as a plan B in the absence of a better solution. It's well organized, clean, windows can be open and you will sleep well. It's far from the center, but... More

On arriving, we had to wait for quite some time before we could check in. Very modern and good rooms with nice beds. Nice view of the Alps. Free wifi in reception area that was sometimes unusable due to lots of teenagers. The hotel was located at a 15 minutes walk from the central station and a bit longer still... More

It is about a 30-minute walk down the river to the old city center. Nice for us as we had the time (even though we drove). We were traveling as a family of three, and we were given a room with two double-deckers. Not sure if they had the right to slot in a fourth stranger to join us. This... More

We book 4 beds and asked to be placed in the same 4-bed room. The person who was replying our emails, Franziska [--], was rude, unaccommodating, and had a poor grasp of Englih. She tried to blackmail us into paying more, and failed to comprehend and address our arguments. We did a search of the other hostel booking websites, and... More

Dear Hongjie Chen, thanks a lot for your comment. I had a closer look at the E-Mail conversation you have had with my colleague and to be honest it is difficult for me to understand your point of view. We are definitely not trying to blackmail you - we just gave you the option to book a bed in our... More

The distance between and the train station is 2 Km and that between the hostel and the old town area is more than 3 Km. The hostel is integated with the educational/ study/ activities/ events camp center for the local citizens, students and kids. It is a huge building complex including soccer field/ sports courts, function rooms, games rooms, roof-top... More

The hostel is 35 min walking from the old city and poor indicated. We booked a 4-bed dorm and when we get there, they had squeezed a fifth bed in the room (the only explanation they gave is that they were overbooked) and we barely had space. Anyway, the rooms are clean and the bathrooms too. They have a luggage... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends in a 4 bed dorm. Impressed with how clean the room was and the shared bathroom (although no-on else seemed to use the bathroom so was practically private!). Room was of a decent size and had 4 individual lockers (free of charge). The hostel was about 20 minutes from the centre of Salzburg... More

Kolpinghaus Salzburg was a little bit cheaper than other hostels we had looked into, but was very far from the main train station and not the easiest to find. After asking locals for directions several times and not having any luck, we called Kolpinghaus to see if they could give us basic directions. The receptionist, confusingly, told us that he... More

1. My experience here had been bad from the moment I arrived. It is not hard to find, but it is far. Finally I reached around 1:30. In the booking site where I'd booked from, they said check in time was between 2pm-10pm. My travel time had been long and I couldnt wait to get to my room. I told... More

My friend and I stayed here whilst interrailing. We were split up into different rooms (which never happened at any other hostel we stayed in in Europe) and though the reception staff were reasonably friendly, it didn't help when I was in the basement and he was on the fourth floor. Everything was clean and fine and perfectly nice but... More
