“good value.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2011

It is more a hostel than a hotel. The room was clean and breakfast was ok. it is a short and nice 10 minute walk form the old town. Nice views of the castle from the terrecce. Careful if you go by car, the let thousand of cars inside and you might find out that there is no space left even when you paid in advance.

Stayed August 2011, traveled as a couple

I've never stayed in a hostel before and I would stop in one like again as long as it was a JUFA. The staff is young and very friendly also very helpful. When I booked well in advance on the JUFA web site it didn't charge me anything only when I arrived was my credit card charged. So only book through the JUFA site you should be OK.

We stayed at JUFA during a round trip of Europe. The location is excellent just a few minutes walk from the wonderful Salzburg Old Town... the prices were reasonable with breakfast included and bed and bathroom were clean and comfortable with hairdryer and TV etc. Free Wifi in the lobby... better than many of the more expensive chain hotels and cheaper... would definitely stay there again

After consulting booking.com and TA, decided to take a chance on this place. Well, did not disappoint. Very clean, quiet family oriented place to stay. Only 5 mons walk to Aldtstadt and all of it's wonderful cathedrals/churches and pedestrian walkways/streets. There is no Air Conditioning, but who cares, the evenings drop to 14C and leave your windows open-it's quiet here. The reception can be a little aloof, but again we weren't here for them. There is a good breakfast (only 7-0930), but if you miss it, there is a food bakery just up the hill on the way to Aldtstadt. There is also a coffee/wine/beer bar opened most of the time and thy serve food such as sandwiches and pizzas. The rooms are clean and spacious enough (we were three and were very comfortable). Never needed to use the car, as we aloes everywhere - even with our six year old child. Buses are a 5 min walk away, and tickets ate sold in tabacco shops etc. Check-in is at 1600, not before, so don't bother the staff with cute platitudes- we sat in the nice lobby with a cool glass of white and listened to several Ftemch and English attempts, to no avail. I would recommend this place to all who are looking for function over fashion.

This is a wonderful Hostel, I don't normally stay at Hostels and I was impressed the rooms are great the location was great and the staff very helpful. The only thing I would say is the breakfast was a little ordinary but I guess you can't expect to much from a hostel, it just would have been nice to have a toaster.

hotel is in a great location, just a short walk from Fortress and Mozart museum. Can hire bikes which is the best way to get around, river nearby too. Staff are very unhelpful and rude, except Monika who i think was the manager, she was really nice. Kitchen staff are rude and miserable too, lots of queueing with checking in and you cannot check into your room until 4pm but kids liked the hotel as there was free wifi/table tennis and table football games

This place was like the IKEA of hostels, cheap, mass produced, but somehow just makes sense. The place had no character and was in a brand new building. It was not far from the city center and close to public transportation. The room was very large and clean, and the breakfast served was the best I had in Europe. But when I arrived, I was told that I was supposed to have checked in by 7pm (which I was never told when booking) and that my room had been given away to someone else. They found another room, but instead of staying in a 3 person dorm, I stayed in a 5 person dorm and had to switch rooms. The place was not bad, but it was not great either.
