The hostel felt safe and peaceful. This wasn't a party hostel. You could meet people from all around the world who were at different ages. The hostel was quite clean. The breakfast was really good. The only negative thing was that some of the staff were quite grumpy, but luckily some of them were really friendly.

It's in an okay location and staff are good, but zero atmosphere for lone backpackers, all school kids and families, DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU ARE A BACKPACKER LOOKING TO MEET PEOPLE! But apart from that it was a good hostel, breakfast was okay

The location of the hostel is good. The facilities are nice as well. However, the atmosphere is more like a HOTEL. If you're looking for a hostel like atmosphere, then this may not be the best place.

Bathrooms smelled bad even te separate showers. The wifi did not reach our bedroom, which was extremely bad because we were relaying on wifi for phone service. Free breakfast was great! But the hostel is more family/child oriented as there were always screaming children/Tweens

When I got there there were not clean beds available. Had to wait for over an hour even though I got there at 6 pm. Bathrooms and rooms smelled really weird. Breakfast was great and the staff at breakfast was nice. There were so many Out of control kids being loud during our stay.

The location of the hostel is perfect with a gorgeous view of the fortress. You can reach the city centre in 5 minutes, Rathausplatz in 10. The staff is friendly and professional. You can't make the check in till 4 pm and the check out is at 10 am but you can let your luggage in the hostel free of charge any time. The building is modern and has a nice restroom and dining room. The breakfast buffet was included and it was great.

Beds were comfortable, showers/bathrooms were clean and we felt safe the whole time. The staff was extremely helpful in telling us where to go, booking our Sound of Music tour and just general tips. Thanks for a great stay!

We decided to book via hostelworld because it offered the best prices. When we arrived the hostel staff wanted us to pay the price from the hostel offer, that would have been 265 Eu instead of 115 Eu. An absolutely impertinence! At least we showed our booking confirmation of hostelworld.com and paid the correct price. The rooms were clean, the hostel was good and the location was perfect. Sorry for my bad english ;-)

I had a great experience with this hostel. My friend and I stayed for one night in an 8 girl dorm and we found it to be of excellent quality especially for the price! The included breakfast was great and had a wide variety of delicious options. Everything was kept very clean and the atmosphere was welcoming. I would highly recommend this place to someone looking to stay close to the city center, but not pay too much while in Salzburg!

Booked a 4 person room but was put in a 8 bed room. Excellent breakfast. Many school groups which caused it to be rather noisy at times (couldn't hear the Sound of Music movie which is played on a wing near the front lobby). Staff were generally helpful and we could walk to most attractions and hiking areas nearby.

This hostel is probably better for families on vacation than for young travelers. Kids were running wild through the common area until late at night while the parents ere loudly drinking (making it impossible to hear the sound of music movie that we chose the hostel for). The rooms themselves were nice, though we had booked a 4 person room and were given an 8 person room, and were told recent remodels had combined rooms, which was not shown on the website.

Its basically a hotel, so, if you stay there, have in mind, you will be very comfortable, but you probably wont know anybody. When I stayed there, the hotel received a lot of tourists TEENAGERS.

My review may not be that accurate as my original booking was upgraded due to some reconstruction work. This place has quite good atmosphere and free breakfast! However, it can be a bit pricey.
