The girl in the reception is super nice and patient. The room is big and clean, and the breakfast very nice. The only thing is that the showing water warms up very slowly.


Hostel is located far from city center (30mins walking up hill). Checkout REALLY early (9:30h). Breakfast was good. Staff very young and the hostel had no such atmosphere for normal backpackers. It is a HI hostel, so it is a kind of pattern. Room was clean and bed was good, but no locker available. Only a wardrobe where you could not use your own locker. It is good for one night only.


A little bit outside the city, but good public transport.


the hostel is a bit old fashioned for what concerns the rooms and the furnitures but it s very clean and comfortable. it s very well indicated with signage and easy to reach

Quiet place not to far from the city. I don´t know, if it is possible to buy tickets for city busses right at hostel. It may be useful because climbing up to the hill when tired is not too enjoyable.

The location of this hostel is very bad. You have to take a tram to go to the old-city or to the main train station. Check out is quite early (9am), breakfast from 7-9am. The reception hours on the weekend are very limited, and the staff wasn't really friendly. It is suitable for families, and not for backpackers, so the atmosphere for backpackers isn't the best (you don't get to meet that many people). However, the rooms are very nice and very clean.


I had a great stay at this hostel. Staff was really friendly, breakfast was good and the beds were also ok. Bathroom was huge :-)


Nice hostel for a short stay in Linz,very clean,in a nice quiet location,breakfast was good.


The rooms were a little dated, and the hostel was not in the best location. I stayed in better hostels for less money in better places. There was nothing "wrong" with the hostel but there was certainly room for improvement updating it. No wifi in bedrooms.


Hello, It was very nice at the hostel. The girl at the reception was very kind and friendly. The only thing which I would recommend you to make it better is to change the time when guests have to leave the room. 9.30 a.m. for people at a vacation is quite early. Best wishes, Nora
