Positive experience: the hostel is welcoming, clean and quite. Breakfast is great: varied and constantly replenished. The only flaw is the staff at the desk: nice people but poorly organized; when I asked some advice on what to do in Salzburg, they were not able to give me good suggestions or provide me of some brochures. Except for that, I recommend this hostel!


Couldn't be happier with the hostel! Great value, location, and breakfast :) Also a pickup point for the Sound of Music Tour, all you have to do is walk down to the lobby. There was only one outlet in our room, so be aware of people hogging the energy haha but overall, still great and definitely recommended for Salzburg.


This place is huge! The day I was there was Easter Saturday, so the place, especially the lobby was full of 15-18 year old noisy kids. Since the lobby is the only place where you can use Wi-Fi, it was not very convenient. The dorm was nevertheless an oasis of peace, and the bathrooms are clean. Breakfast was also good.


A very affordable price, including breakfast.


nice place, quiet close to the old city and city center. staff was really helpful and were nice. i think that the only thing was missing was more electric spots in the rooms. it is worth for the prize i paid (which was quiet cheap)


This place is in a good location, about a 20-30 min walk from the main things. It is more like a college dorm than a hostel. There were lots of school trips going on when we stayed so there were hundreds of kids between 7 and probably 18 running around and lots of parents and teachers. The room was really small and smelled really bad. Breakfast was really good and there were plenty of options. The staff was really nice and didn't judge us for watching Sound of Music 2 nights in a row.


Nice place and friendly staff but lots of annoying and loud school groups staying there. Not great wifi.


The hostel was clean and has a great location. I would recommend it if you are looking for a cheap place to stay. If you're looking for a party hostel, you're at the wrong place!

We took a 5-people apartment. The room was clean, We were given towels and bed linen. The breakfast was execcelent. We did not have a kitchen, but we did not really need it. The location was good, very near the fortress. We walked from the railway station to the hostel. We did not have to use public transport in Salzburg at all.
