Great place! A bit of a walk to the city center but great facilities and great staff! Would stay again.

Not a good experience. There was a group of at least 30 school children at the time that were constantly making excessive noise, running up and down the hallways and slamming doors until 2:00am. We asked them to keep the noise down and complained to reception several times but nothing was ever done. Cleaners would enter our 9 bed dorm as early as 9:30am while everyone was still sleeping, turn all the lights on and talk as loudly as they possibly could, even answering their phones in our room.

Great hostel, very clean dorm rooms. Not in centre but right next to a trail up to a beautiful lookout. Only negative thing to say is the breakfast is not worth the 6 euros. Your better off going to one of the many supermarkets nearby for a pastry. Would definitely recommend!

This is more like a hotel than a hostel. Not a good place to get into people but the facilities were great. A bit far from the center, need to walk for around 25mins to the city center.

I thought the hostel was modern with modern facilities but the price is a little expensive for a 9 bed dorm that only has 1 shower and one toilet. As I came late I had a bed on a corner which was extremely difficult to get into. The staff are polite bit slow. You can stand and the bar or reception waiting in view of them for several minutes before they great you which can be a little frustrating. All in all I would say my stay was satisfactory and nothing more.

All around a good hostel for Salzburg. I stayed in a dorm and was able to meet other solo travelers, and from there we were able to explore the city and surrounding areas. Definitely a good vibe among other travelers and the staff was awesome.

great room, new wide and practical, locker is too small but ok, toilet is big and clean. Breakfasr is too expensive when compare to price. It should be more option to choose and the last day I stayed there was no boiled egg for the breakfast

Great hostel. clean facilities. wifi is good. location is about 20-30 minutes walk from the old town but an easy walk. kitchen was good, they could do with buying some more sharp knives though! beds were comfortable and bathrooms were clean with hot showers and good pressure. no complaints!

I loved this hostel. It was more like a hotel than a hostel. The shower and toilet were incredibly clean and they even provided soap. The kitchen area was combined with the laundry area so it was a little noisy to eat there when the machines were going. The rooms were fantastic though!

At times, our guest kitchen may seem a bit busy indeed, but this means it is also a great place for meeting new people. Anyway, we would love to welcome you back very soon! Best regards, Your MEINIGNER Salzburg Team

As the description (if not the name) suggests; quite a way out of town but the bus stop is very close. The hostel is really cool - hotel really with some dorm rooms too. En-suite dorms are modern, comfortable and clean - although only one toilet and one shower for 9 people! Breakfast is 7 euros; depending on what/how much you eat it's good value; meats, cheese, breads, cereals, fruits and yogurt. I'd stay again

Clean, well-run hostel/hotel. I looked for Meininger in Salzburg after a great stay at a Meininger in Vienna, very happy with my choice. Nice lounge area, friendly staff. While it's not situated right next to the touristy sights, I found the walk to the old town pleasant.

In a nice place, 20 minute walk from the centre of town, there's plenty of information about the city. Breakfast is a lot for what it is, but apart from that very impressed. Good wifi, facilities, you're welcome to drink your own alcohol. And got to watch the sound of music which we turned into a drinking game. Quite a good atmosphere and nice room with ensuite.

Room was surprisingly quiet, especially considering the young and rambunctious predisposition of the typical Meininger clientele. The only thing that could have been better is the location. Get your bus pass, or just be prepared to walk a simple 15 minutes to get into town.
