The staff is very helpful and welcoming, and the place's cozy, well-maintained, and affordable. Just two little downsides It's a little "far" from the city center, but easily reachable by tram. Check out it's too early make it at least 11:00 Besides that the place its awesome :)
Our room was very large with 4 beds, 2 bathrooms en suite, and a kitchenette. The view out our window was lovely. It was a very short walk to the bus route, and we walked up the hill next to the hotel and found a very lovely view and places to eat. Breakfast was nice, with a lot of choices. The staff was very helpful. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. We only had one night there, but would definitely return.
Since the hospitality of the elderly was considered sacred, foreigners were accommodated and refreshed. My second experience with the Hostel Marmota in Innsbruck starts on November 6th, 2020. I book a single room for my son against payment on arrival. Since there were restrictions on Covid 19, my son was accompanied by a letter stating that the trip was not for tourism but for work. On arrival they refused to take my son in because the letter was not appropriate, to say that my son had ridden a motorcycle from Munich to Innsbruck in the cold and rain weather. And not satisfied with the sacrilege of hospitality, they charged my credit card. (And of course, Booking.com supports: blah blah blah ). Keep in mind when you give your credit card to this place or if you have problem. …
I had a very good time staying at Hostel Marmota. Rooms and bathrooms are tidy, there is plenty for breakfast, the staff is always keen to help. The sanitary mesures are well respected too. The only thing I noticed is that it would be nice to have access to a fridge and a kettle to be able to make some sandwiches and tea/coffee in the evening or before hiking, but that’s a slight detail comparing to all the good sides of the hostel. I’d recommend it to anyone. Thanks guys!
I stayed at this hostel prior to its recent renovation and what a difference! Everything is clean, modern, and in good condition. I couldn't believe how spacious the 6 bed dorms were and that they came with two showers and toilets. The lockers were large too and most of the beds were not bunks. Breakfast was a great variety and extremely delicious, wifi great and the staff were always friendly and helpful. I would say that the only downside was the lack of kitchen facilities especially as you are about a 25 minute walk from the centre.
First of all, special thanks to Madalena and aleksandra. We couldn’t have found more friendly staff then both of them. With their great tips we were able to enjoy the most out of Innsbruck, and they would always receive us with a great smile! Thank you girls! Second of all, the hostel is amazing, very modern, the room and shower are extra comfortable. The environment it’s young and adventurous l! ( by the way, loved the decoration of the rooms). Breakfast it’s delicious as well ☺️ The location it was great, 2 minutes walking from the tram, which takes you to the city center in 5 minutes! Thanks to aleksandra who explained everything for us! And for last but not least, the hostel have bikes to rent for only 10 euros per day. Me and my friend we have rented, and they were super nice. We had the best experience biking along the river to near villages. It felt like the sound of music! Thanks again madalena for arrange everything for us! Vielen danke 😊 …
Everything was as expected, maybe even better regarding the room. But one thing was absolutely awful was our bed, I basically had my worse nights in a very long time, extremely hard mattress and almost inexistent pillow.
The room wasnt exactly clean,the sheets seemed used plus the hostel is surrounded by two cemetery and next to it is the crematory so although i paid i had ro leave as i didnt want this view on my vacation
A very relaxing, clean and safe feeling hostel to stay in, the staff were very friendly and the morning breakfast was continental style although not overly generous. Most people staying were families or mature age, didn’t see any college-aged backpackers. Well worth paying an extra €2 per night for a mountain view although a kitchen/kettle wasn’t included. There’s a small supermarket close-by and would recommend Franky’s restaurant for a low-key meal which is tasty but not too expensive.
One of the best hostels we have tried. All felt very new, it was very clean, it was spacious. great view from the room. There was a mix up with the booking via hotell.com but it was sorted, good breakfast. We had a car so it was easy for us to get to town, however the buss connection seemed tobe pretty easy too.
