Not city center!


57%

This is not a place to meet people at all as it structured like a hotel. The staff weren't particularly friendly and for what you pay for, you don't get very much.

It has good facilities. But the cabinets are too small to put my carrier. The location is a little bit far from the center of Salzburg but you can take a bus nearby the hostel(number2 and 4).it takes 15minutes. Breakfast is cool too :) staffs are so kind, and the room are so clean, and quiet :)

Because it's a hotel and a hostel you get all the added accommodations of a hotel with a low price. Also within walking distance of everything. I recommend a restaurant near there called Urban Keller, great food, great beer, and free tap water!!

Hi there! Thank you very much for this great rating! It´s great to hear that you liked our concept of a hostel/hotel so much and had a pleasant stay in Salzburg! It would be great to see you in a MEININGER again - maybe in Vienna or Munich? Best wishes Your MEININGER Salzburg Team

The only downside of this hostel is how far it is from the city center and how buses stop very early on all nights of the week. It is walkable--20/25 minutes, but returning at night might be a concern. Very secure--you needed to use your key card to use the elevator and there were lockers in the rooms. There is a bar and there are always many people at breakfast so meeting other travelers is possible.

Hello, thank you for your review. We are pleased that your stay at the MEININGER Hotel was great. We hope to see you again in our other Hotels. For example in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Cologne, Frankfurt, Hamburg, London, Munich or Vienna. Greetings from Salzburg, the MEININGER- Team

Wonderful place to stay. Part hotel and part hostel. Very clean, HUGE breakfast for purchase, and nice and spacious rooms. Only one laundry machine, which was challenging. The old town was a 20 minute walk away. Not the best place if you are traveling alone and want to meet people.

Thanks for providing the free hand soap. The rooms were really nice, and so was the breakfast layout.

The only issue with the hostel is that it is not in the city center like the name suggests. It's a 20+ minute walk to get anywhere worth going, though there is bus connections as well that are quicker. Everything else about the hostel was fine. Clean and secure. Wifi everywhere.

Much more like a hotel than a hostel, it is deceptively far from the main Salzburg station and public transport is very expensive. We had an average welcome, but with no advice on where to go or a map. However, we are pleasantly surprised we got upgraded from a 9 bed to a private 4 bed room.

Hi there! Thank you very much for your feedback! We´re sorry about the welcome - that is definitely not our standard and we will try to improve here! We´re also glad to hear that all in all you enjoyed your stay in Salzburg and would be happy to welcome you again! Best wishes Your MEININGER Salzburg Team

As always this chain of hostels is very clean and really nice with comfy beds and lots of space in the rooms. The hostel is a little ways away from the town or the station so you need to bus everywhere but it was ok. Would stay here again

Everything was great except that calling it city centre is not quite right. It is at least a 20 minutes walk to the city centre. And also the kitchen is quite small and would need more plates/classes/cuttlery

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there! Thanks a lot for your feedback! It´s great to hear that you had a pleasant stay here in Salzburg. Thank you also for the hint concerning plates and cuttlery - we will definitely refill those so that everybody can enjoy their cooking session in the kitchen! Best wishes Your MEININGER Salzburg Team

Nice spacious rooms and good showering facilities, kitchen was a little small for the amount of people staying there, but otherwise loved it!

Hi! Thank you very much for your feedback! We´re really happy to hear that you loved your stay here! As for the kitchen - it was meant as an additional service - we never expected so many people using it, but it´s good that it serves its purpose! Greetings from Salzburg Your MEININGER Team

I stayed In the dorms which were very clean and spacious. We also had our own ensuite with separate shower and bathroom. Kitchen is a bit small for the volume of residents but still good. It is about a 20min walk to the old town and about half an hour walk from the station.

Only want to note that the hotel isn't truly in city center...though it was a quick bus ride to the center.

Nice cleanly hotel/hostel, staff friendly, of location opposite Aldi. Ony concern I had was some guests in big groups should nt be able to buy the whole of Aldi and cook a 10 course meal for 30 people in one small kitchen. other than that everything was perfect.

It is easy to find out the location, just on the main road and it looks like a hotel. As a guest, I feel very comfortable to stay in. The staff is professional and polite. I highly recommend to other travellers.

Out of city center. Hotel with dorm rooms for cheaper was all this was. Not a place for solo backpackers trying to meet people. Very clean and new facilities.

Helpful, nice reception. Not a prime backpacker location. A lot of families and older people. Good if you want some time to yourself!
