“School ski trip with 321ski - great location, value and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

Great place for a school ski trip. Good sized, clean rooms, close to skishuttle bus. Continental breakfast filling and elaborate in the morning, and sets you up for the day. Without fear of exaggeration this loaction has to be one of the most beautiful in Austria. Can't wait to return next year to stay at the same location with 31ski. A big thank you to the JGH staff, Toby at 321ski and our pupils from JSSC. All of our pupils came back buzzing so full credit to everyone involved - sadly it takes a lot to impress them!!

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the lake!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

We stayed at this hostel after a day long hike down from the Alps. We ended up staying in a private room, which had its own bathroom, table and chairs, wardrobe and a set of bunk beds. Everything was clean and neat. It was a little more expensive than other hostels (I think about 23 euro per person), but as we were in a private room it was not so bad. Breakfast is included in the price, and was a good selection of cereals, bread and spreads. The staff are also very helpful.

Zell am See is a beautiful town, with a variety of activities given it's proximity to the alps and the lake. I am looking forward to staying here again in the future!

The 4-bed room had two bunkbeds, a private shower/sink and separate toilet. Everything was very clean. There were two wardrobes with 4 shelves on one side and several coathangers on the other side. Each bed had a little shelf and reading lamp. There was enough floorspace for the suitcases, hooks for coats and a good size table with chairs. The beds were comfortable and well-built. The room had a beautiful view across the lake. The breakfast buffet was good, the staff very friendly and helpful.
There is no washing machine. We used the wash service in town, which was expensive, but good.

We didn't like the shower which was fixed high up on the wall and delivered a far apart hard spray. The towels we rented were old and thin.
For most of our stay the central heating system was switched off, even though night temperatures were close to freezing.
The biggest problem was noisy groups. Noise echoes in the hallways, especially at night. A large group of teenagers filled up the breakfast room in the morning.
Families might be better off with a holiday apartment.

To get into town you can walk along the lake (Make sure you walk on the footpath and not the bike path !). If you want to get to the nearest busstop, e.g. to go to Kaprun, you have to walk along a high railway fence for a while, that separates this part of town from the main road.

The Zell am See Youth Hostel was the perfect inexpensive and gorgeous setting for us to stay in while biking on the Tauern Bike Trail in May 2008. The weather was great, there were very few tourists, and lodging was readily available.
