The location is 30 minutes walking from train station, but 5 minutes walking to town center. Breadfast is good, room is clean and safe. But, no enough plugs in rooms and public area, very inconvenient.
Jufa is a hostel for everyone not just young people. It doesn't have the same feel as a small youth hostel where you get to know the other guests. It is a big operation. It is clean and nice though!

Staff were friendly, the was room small but clean and the common area very nice. Extremely good breakfast in comparison to other hostel breakfasts I've had. Great value for money!
Neat and clean hostel with awesome breakfast included in the price. There is also free wifi and lockers provided with comfortable couches and a bar in the lobby.
Great place to stay- we stayed in 8 bed female- we definitely had the best dorm (B6) - others didn't look as spacious. Free breakky amazing, staff were nice, security was great (had security outside at night). Great walk into old town. Would recommend!
The bathrooms smelled of mould and were very dirty. The wifi only worked in the reception area. There were small school children everywhere. They were loud and unruly. It was close to the old town which is useful if that's what you want to see.
Jufa is not a hostel. Its a hotel that has some dorm rooms. There is no hostel feeling here and the staff are often rude. They advertise having bike hire but when asked they said all the bikes are broke which isn't .
The staffs are kind and approachable but a bit expensive.

This is sort of a hostel/hotel combination, so it does not have the atmosphere of some other hostels, but it is a clean, safe place to stay, and the free breakfast is great!! Note that they advertise here that they have the lowest rate (37 Euro) for the Sound of Music tour, but this is not the case. You pay 40 Euro, same as if you booked directly from Panorama tours. Panorama does pick you up at Jufa though, which is nice.
Best hostel out of five that I stayed in while in Europe. Hostel was nice and clean, staff was helpful, beds were comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was very good having eggs, bacon, cereal, bread, bagels, jam... I would stay there again due to the breakfast alone. It was also one of the cheapest hostels that I stayed at.
Every thing was nice and I want to stay at Jufa.
It was great to have free breakfast provided with the room however the place lacks atmosphere and makes it difficult to meet fellow travellers.
One of the BEST hostels I have ever stayed at! Just about a 20 min beautiful walk to the city center, the rooms are cleaned, they show Sound of Music EVERY night, felt safe, and free breakfast! Worth every bit of money!
The best part about this place is the free breakfast, which includes bacon and eggs, yogurt, pudding, tea, coffee, hot cocoa, different breads and cereals, fruit. Amazing. The dorm rooms are alright - beds are comfy, and have a reading light and shelf, but the rooms themselves are very cramped. There's no storage inside the room - only school-like lockers in the hallway outside which cost 2 euro extra to rent. Location is alright. Staff are friendly, but often too busy to answer questions.
Was bitten terribly by some kinds of bugs (might be flee), but not sure where those bugs from. (Might be from outside of the window or from the bed linen.) The other facilities and breakfast were perfect though.
I had to lock my luggage for a day after checking out. The door to the luggage room is not near reception so they can't keep an eye on it. The door was unlocked when I put my bag in, and unlocked when I came back for it that night! The atmosphere was great and rooms were spacious. Clean showers and bathrooms. Love the nightly Sound of Music showing!
The biggest problem with Jufa was that its a hotel and hostel combined. The hostel rooms are hidden away in the depths of the basement and from time to time you witness ghostly, disturbed men walking the corridors. There is no kitchen, the rooms stink and you are unable to consume any of your own products in the common areas. On a slightly more positive note, the location is decent.
