Well-located, only a short walk from the historic centre of Salzburg. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and the cheapest place I could find. The breakfast is also excellent (and included!). Not much of a hostel atmosphere, though - mostly this is a hotel with some dorms in the basement, and as a 'family' guesthouse there are a lot of kids. The lounge/bar area is pretty nice in any case.

Great location. Staff is friendly, speak excellent English and are happy to help you with whatever you need. The WIFI does not work in the rooms and at times it can be slow upstairs, you also seem to have to login again every time you return to use it. The drying machine was broken at the time I was there, but I assume will be fixed soon. The breakfast was really good, lots of options including warm food, good eggs.

This hostel is great but a little far from the centre of Salzburg but accessible by bus and a short walk. The young receptionist Philip was in his first month of working and was lovely with great customer service skills!! The hostel is clean, modern and has good facilities. Wi-Fi was not in rooms only reception. 4 bed dorm spacious and clean, no lockers only wardrobe in 4 bed dorm. No plugs next to beds only 3 plugs for whole room. Overall a pleasant stay and cheap.

Does not have the atmosphere of a hostel. The place is very nice but looks more like a hotel.

A nice place, well-located. The 8-bed dorm was cramped but clean. The toilets and showers were clean too. The staff was extremely friendly. Included breakfast was amazing.

Good location, 5 minutes away from most historical landmarks. What was most impressive was the breakfast, which offered a range of cold meat, bread, cereal, yoghurt, bacon, eggs, juice etc.! Awesome value for money!

Awesome place with a great free breakfast of both cold and warm foods. The room we stayed in (5 person suite with private bathroom) was very spacious and comfortable. There was even a TV in our room. Internet was a bit slow and only found in the lounge area.

We had a pleasant stay at the hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is so good, only 10 minutes walk from the train station. We can even leave our luggage there after check out so we can explore Florence luggage-free. The room (we took the private with shared bathroom) was spacious and bed was comfortable to sleep in. Maybe need to repair the bathroom door.

Loved that they played sound of music every night. We did book a tour though and even though we were there half an hour early they left without us. The meeting place wasn't specific. Bathrooms could be cleaned more often the guests sometimes put paper towel in the toilets.

Only stayed one night, but the hostel was great! It was very big and there were a lot of young travelers, families and children, and older crowds. They let us store our luggage in their luggage room and were very helpful. Overall, great stay!

It was so good, for People who want to travel a lot, this Hostal is a good Option. The breakfast was super. The bad and important Thing is that the key Card can open all the rooms.

Very nice facilities, very clean, great breakfast, but looks more like a hotel than a hostel (I think they have more private rooms than dorms). At least when I was there, in the beginning of Sept, there were too many families and kids, making it difficult to meet new people.

Most incredible breakfast ever! Loved the spread--and all included! That alone made it worth the stay. Enjoyed bonding over "Sound of Music" with other guests in the evening. Biggest disappointment was the wifi only works in the lobby and was spotty at best. Bedroom was REALLY small. Location wasn't great but probably the best you can get in Salzburg: 15 minutes walk to Old Town.
