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!
thought it was quite nice! I did like the idea of the kitchen where you could cook your own food. Slightly overcrowded so you pretty much have to queue in order to use anything, but overall a good hostel experience.
The internet was extremely poor, even in the common room which was the one place I was told I'd have access to wifi. The staff weren't particularly helpful when it came to local advice and the directions to the hostel given in the email were misleading. Unfortunately, the atmosphere was not great, perhaps because no events or activities were organised and the staff where not around. It is in a nice location though (albeit 25min walk to city) as it has a lovely view of the mountains.
Quite far from the center, easy enough to get the tram although I just walked. Really nice view and outside area. Could do with more plug sockets in the dorms. Kitchen was adequate. Would stay again.
I liked that there is now a key per person. The bedroom door wouldn't stay closed without locking it but on a plus side this meant everyone definitely locked the door. Facilities were good hostel facilities and I liked the common area, solo travellers can easily meet people if you simply talk to people.
The hostel itself was good, nice bed rooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was great and it has a great view of the mountains. There's wifi only in the common room which is a little annoying. The staff were okay and nice when you asked a question. It was a little dull though, there was nothing organised for travellers, no tours or nights out or anything so unless you found people to do things with it was a bit boring at night but it depends who else is staying there at the same time as you.
The staff is simply wonderful. Nice and fun people, good job, the party on saturday was awsome. Though, the wi-fi wasn't working so well everywhere. Unfortunatly the hostel is not so close from downtown. What could be a good idea is to offer a discount on public transporation.

I would give this place 100% if it weren't for the poor wifi strength. I'm in room 19 it terrible when everyone is online. The dining area is no better. But, I loved the hospitality of the Polish owners. They know how to entertain everyone with shots of Polish vodka. Thanks!
A little bit out of the way in relation to the city! Staff were very friendly and hostel was very clean. Beds were comfy. Would stay there again
24 euros and no breakfast included, away from city center. can do better.
Staff were very helpful and the cooking/communal area were very good with wifi too. Was on the 3rd room so wifi didn't reach us up there but the room was clean and tidy. However there wasn't enough lockers in the room so we kept our valuables with us at all times. If you're happy to pay for a tram then location is perfect but if not it's a half hour walk which might not suit you! All in all would stay again!
The best part about this place was the view of the mountains. Also the staff were nice, it was clean and it had a great atmosphere! Would stay here again.
Good hostel for a few nights. It's kid io far from the centre but there's a direct tram that takes you there in no time. Besides, it's the only hostel actually in innsbruck and has a great terrace where you can drink beers and enjoy the mountain view
Good hostel, we had nice time there. :) The common room and kitchen were very spacious and the outdoor terrace was great. The location was a bit far from the centre but it was still a walkable distance and a tram from the centre and the railway station stopped behind the corner. We would highly recommend this hostel!
Everything as advertised. Good size kitchen and bathroom. A little of the main backpacker trail and so not guaranteed to get a big social culture.
