“Friendly hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I am not an experienced visitor of hostels, so it might be a bit difficult to write an objective review. I stayed with my boyfriend, um and sister in a 4-bed room with private shower.
The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. You could watch a DVD and read books downstairs. The coffe from the machine was awful! We also had breakfast in the morning which was very worth the money of 3,50:-. Overall we had a pleasant stay even though hostels always makes me feel like Im on a childrens camp.

Stayed here for two nights after a conference to explore Salzburg. Really great, clean and friendly hostel with superb facilities.

A particular highlight was the card swipe lockers - very spacious and secure. The cheap bar was great for meeting people before exploring the city.

Very centrally located and a good map is available for free at reception. Dorms are priced very reasonably and are quite spacious.

The place is quite easy to locate. It is in a quiet location which can help avoid the drone of vehicles. Although in the winters, it might be easier to stay somewhere closer to the train stations(to avoid walking). I stayed in the 6-bed female dorm. It was very clean, safe (something I was very conscious about as a solo female traveller). I was lucky to not have snoring room-mates :) and enjoyed a good night's sleep. This place is great to meet a bunch of travellers from different countries.

Good location close from the station in a quiet street but far from the old city by foot. With the Salzburg Card and free buses, it won't be a trouble. 4 beds room was just enough large when luggages were too bigs for lockers but new and clean. Some noise from people running in the stairs. Good traditional breakfast. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms close from stairs and common lavatories which are noisy

This hostel was clean and close to the train station, though a decent walk from the old city. The bed in the dorm was fine, though there weren't a ton of plugs and it took a little while to figure out the locker. My dorm room had the in-room bathroom and shower, and they were really nice. The breakfast (costs extra) was nice. The bar downstairs also serves dinner. Again, it was extra, but it was cheaper than other stuff around and it was good and convenient with a number of options. The kitchen was a little sketchy, so I wouldn't plan on trying to cook. I also liked watching the sound of music, which they show every evening. A little cheesy, but fun and a nice way to meet people.

It is closed to main railway station just about 10-15 mins walk and not too far from main sightseeing in town.

The mixed dorm room was very nice and clean. All provided facilities including kitchen are very ok. The staffs were quite friendly and gave good recommendations for interesting places to visit.

Recommended !

Close to the main station. Staff were helpful. The 8 bed dorm was sufficient as somewhere to sleep. Wifi was average. Good in room lockers with electronic locks. Terrible kitchen. It was dirty and looked like a biohazard. The bathrooms and showers were good though.
