All of this hotel is great!! But the only thing is the location.I gotta pay 4.6 euro.
Clean hostel and nice stuff. By walking about 30 min from main train station and easy to find, so not far away but not in the center. Handicapped people can take a tram in front of the train station to near hostel (2 min walking from tram stop).
Although the hostel is not located downtown it is easily accessible with public transportation. The room was spotlessly clean and the staff was nice. In sum, it is good value for money. The only less positive comments that I have are that I paid extra 2€ on arrival (due to taxes or something like that) and the room did not have black outs so I would wake up as soon as the sun rose.
Great hostel and a great place to meet other travellers.
Poor wifi, the shower temperature was inconstant and lacked good infrastructure. Staff didn't engage with the guests.
The hostel is ok, but really far from the city. No restaurants, bars or any other place to eat around! The share rooms have only one key, so you also need to leave the door open whenever you are there. The night I've stayed, people were pretty loud, and no one made anything (even with 24h staffs and rules that you have to sign about silent, etc.).
The staff was really accommodating and very kind, I would strongly recommend backpackers to stay here for a couple days!
Bit out of ton, however very easy access to tram use. And with Innsbruck card u get free public transport and more so no need to worry about getting the correct ticket or tram. Its all covered. Lovely place.
Awful Hostel, I would not recommend it even to my enemy.

It is a nice place to stay, a little bit far from the city center... Nice rooms, just maybe wifi in the whole building would be great.
Came for one night, out of the way from the city however easily accessible by tram... Not much of an atmosphere... Big comfy common room but not social at all... Staff wasn't really friendly I felt like they were angry about something the whole time, weren't really helpful or inviting... Efficient but rude... The rooms were really nice and so clean same for bathrooms... Nice linen and plenty of outlets... Got the job done but not a fun party hostel however not many hostels in this area sooo....
Nice common room and kitchen but overall the hostel lacks in cleanliness. Also having one key to a dorm room doesn't really work, either everyone should have a key or there is no point to having one.
First hostel experience and it was a good one. Got the private room for 4. Was spacious and we had our own bathroom. We got lucky and could get the wifi on the 1st floor. Overall no complaints. Very short walk to the tram which takes you over the whole city.

The room key system was based a shared key for the room -if you are the last person out of the room, you return the key to reception. It was the worst idea I've ever seen for security reasons as well as general confusion of who has the key and if someone is in the room. Wifi is only in the common, which is 24 hours, but was not kept clean.
Great map, staff didn't really want to be there but overall good stay. Would be more than happy to go back. Such a beautiful city
Staff were very friendly. Don't know why people complain about security when they do provide lockers with keys, that you can get for free, if you're willing to pay the deposit. There's a tram not far away that takes you to the center, which runs until 11.20p.m., as a real backpacker, I don't find the distance to be particularly a big problem, since, I'm 90% of the time away from the hostel.
The location is rather secluded, so it can be quite quiet in the night. It is located on the far end of the city but it provides a spectacular view of the Austrian alps on a clear sky. The nearest supermarket M-preis closes at 7pm and its around 300 meters away.I would personally prefer a key card system, so I know that the dorm is accessed by the patrons and staff only. It seems as though as anybody can go up to the reception and request for the room keys with the Marmot mascot.
