well organized. a bit fa from city center
When I arrived at the hostel the staff was very nice to me. They give me a delicious savory pie that I enjoy a lot because I had not eaten lunch (jaja). The location is amazing, because you can see the beatiful views of the mountains sourronding the city of Innsbruck. And the polish people is very nice. I enjoy a lot my trip there. The room was clean and cheerful.
PLEASE get rid of the rats on the keys. We understand that you don't want them to get lost, by its quite obnoxious for light-weight packers/hikers. We felt very juvenile with all the childish paintings and coloring book marmots. Besides personally disliking the atmosphere, the showers at night were cold, not enough toilet paper, the floors in our room hadn't been mopped, music blasting at 7 from reception was annoying when trying to rest for a hike, beds were uncomfortable, no light in hall.

Hostel is a five minute walk to tram that takes you into Innsbruck in ten minutes. Staff is friendly/helpful. Hostel is old and in need of updating. The floors are swept but need a good cleaning, especially in the kitchen. Kitchen is large with three two burner stoves and two sinks. Our room's radiator did not work, but we were given a great portable radiator when we reported it. Wifi signal is weak. Common area is large with plenty of tables and seating.Beds comfortable with clean linen/towels.

Very nice staff in a young warming hostel. It is not as far from de city center as it seems in the first sight but if you don't want to walk there's a tram station very close to the hostel. Defenitively a good value for your money if you are not interested in luxury.
The hostel was not as social as some that I've been to, but the staff was very helpful in my travels.
Great staff. Really helpful and friendly. Next to a tram station.Near by the castle. Big kitchen. I would recommend to buy the innsbruck's city card sold there. I recommend this hostel.
For the love of God, remove the rats from the keys! Otherwise, great stay and decent location. I liked the assigned lockers with your own keys. Staff could have been more helpful.
The hostel has the basics. It's price is way above my budget but the only place I found to stay near Innsbruck.
Nice hostel, nice staff, nice location surrounded by the mountains. Kitchen a bit crowded at dinner/breakfast, and no oven which made making meals harder. Overall nice.
This hostel is very friendly.

We gravitated to this place because of the promise of parking. but otherwise it's a bit far from the action. the one key per room thing is a bit odd, I wonder if anyone can walk in and ask for a room key without question? rooms were spacious, it was enough for us for 1 night stay.
I'd recommend this hostel & I'll probably be back. Staff were friendly & gave good info on local hiking. Common area is large and usually full of conversation. Rooms are a decent size & with ensuites. Close to the tram, restaurants & supermarket, but a bit far from town to walk for most people. Only negatives are that wifi wasn't great outside the common area and my pillow was uncomfortable. Try the lasagne at the Italian place down the road if you don't feel like cooking ;)
Staff were friendly and helpful, though check in felt more like an interview. Good location, not in the city centre but it's easy to get to by tram. The place was pretty clean. The bed was comfortable and there were lockers in the rooms. The place had a friendly atmosphere about it and it was easy to meet people. Wifi worked fairly well in the common room but not really in the rooms.
The good thing about this hostel that i booked a 4 bed mixed room and they put me in 2 bed room , 6 minutes to train station , normal hostel
Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Hostel had a good vibe and it was easy to meet other travelers. I would stay here again.
Location is a 10min team into town which is okay. Rooms are good size but a bit dated. Kitchen was well equipped but it was filthy like it was never cleaned. There was a social area which was nice to meet others although pleeeeaze take down all the marmota colour in sheets and jars of colour pencils. It makes you feel like you're in a kindergarten. We met two staff. A lady who was rude. And Sebastian who was the highlight of our stay and we would return only to see him again.
The staff is so nice and helpful and the facilities are fabulous and clean. Good location too- east bus ride from the main station- 7 minutes- and walking distance from tourist sites and any stores you may need
The hostel was great value for money, short tram to town. Staff were not the best, when we checked in the guy was very stressed and told us all the problems, served other people before completing our check in. The last day the lady was quite rude and we felt like we were annoying her. Wifi only works in common room but that's ok, gets people talking. Recommended to go to the castle to see draculas painting, we went there only to find it's not there and on exhibit elsewhere.
Great hostel, one of the best we have stayed in!
