Stayed here for two nights from 26 June 2010, after reading a lot of good things about the hostel. We stayed in a room for 2 (2 single beds end on end) with a private bathroom including toilet and shower. These rooms are obviously used by students during the school term, and there’s plenty of space, and storage, as well as 2 separate desks. Our room was basic student accommodation, but very clean – the service from the lady at reception was outstanding – she spoke perfect English, arranged internet access for our room (2Euro for the whole day – cable broadband), gave us advice re. catching trains, and booked a taxi for us when we checked out. Breakfast was bread & jam with either tea or coffee. On the downside, our window faced onto a small square, which was very noisy at night with nearby pubs/cafes – add this to the bells which ring ‘til 11pm and start again around 7am, and it’s hard to sleep soundly without earplugs. That said, the location of the hostel is excellent – many cafes & restaurants nearby, and the Old Town is only 10mins walk away. The location & service easily counter the noise, and I’d certainly recommend this hostel as a budget stay in Salzburg.
