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.

The internet was really slow and the connection timed out a lot

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback. Telling from your review, I take it you have enjoyed your stay with us, despite the minor WIFI troubles. On busy days, the connection may appear a bit tardy indeed, but we are working on this ;) See you soon in one of our many hotels across Europe ;) Best, Your MEININGER Team Salzburg

Good points -Very clean and new hostel -The transportation to the hostel was easy in every way -The breakfast was good but was 4.90 and it had a lot of variety Bad Points -The only bad point is that I think they don't have age limitation for shared rooms and a guy snored all night long...

The name is a bit deceiving - NOT located at city center. However it was clean and safe and not too far from the city center by bus or walking. Overall nice stay. Breakfast was a good value.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we would love to welcome you back very soon. All the best, Your MEININGER Team Salzburg

A great experience overall. The staff was very helpful with planning out an itinerary for my short stay in Salzburg. Rooms were comfortable and amenities great for the money. Bathrooms were super as well! Plus, the location is perfect. A short walk to the historical city center, which allows you to pass many neat and interesting shops you'd otherwise miss out on.

The location is just okay in Salzburg, but compare to other hotel, the value is not bad. Some of the staff are unprofessional and not friendly, she just pretend didn't see me while I need to check-in. And I was asking about Mozart music event, one of them replied me" I don't know" and ends the conversation. This is not what I'm looking for a trip in Salzburg, especially it's a hotel not a 2 stars hostel. But other staff were helpful.

This hostel is quite a far walk from downtown Salzburg, as well as the train station. They allow free luggage storage before you've checked in and after you check out, which is nice. This hostel is actually like a hotel, with mostly families staying there, so we felt a bit out of place and it does not have your usual hangout hostel vibe. The beds were a bit uncomfortable, and you have to ask reception for a towel. I would recommend a hostel closer to the center that has a better atmosphere.

Amazing stay!! The hostel is clean and confortable.

It is not a city center hotel, what the name suggests. Expect a 45-minutes walk to reach the center. This is the major downside, the rest is good.

It was the aIt's the first bad review i write ever. The staff in this hostel are really unfriendly. They inpatient and rude. They also took a city tax that wasn't mentioned in the sum online. And location is very far from the center even though the name has city center in it.

I was checked in quickly by kind staff and no deposit. I booked a 9 bed dorm and was given a 6 bed. In the room there’s a separate shower and toilet. The internet always worked, and each bed has a little light and outlet next to it. Downsides is that it’s a 25 minute walk to the train station and no lockers inside the room. I didn’t get the hostel breakfast, because there’s a grocery store across the street and It cost me only 4 Euros for a sandwich, drink and fresh pastry.

Nice lodging and great staff. Only problem is it is a 20 minute walk or bus ride to downtown. Not exactly in the city Centre like the name but still very easy to take bus into the city.

Excellent rooms that are spacious and tidy. Large lockers provided within rooms. Ensuite is very clean and modern. Staff are very helpful. Only thing is that the location is slightly out of the town centre, 20mins walk but you do have good hills for walks just outside and well stocked supermarket a minute away.

Friendly staff when checking in. They also gave out neat maps with tips for a local perspective, rather than the tourist one. Overall a solid hostel to stay at.

We ve been to a couple Meinunger Hotels yet, and again a pleasant stay. This one tho has a tiny little (under equipped) kitchen for the size of the hotel tho ! Lots of information about salzburg and surrounding area available, bus stop just on the corner!

The 6 female ensuite dorm was very spacious, with separate toilet and sink (which is brilliant when you have 6 girls in the room!). Room gets cleaned daily, staffs are friendly and very helpful. They have a washing machine & drier available in the guest kitchen for which is really handy if you need to do any washing. The only thing we couldn't quite figure out was how to lock the locker but it's not a big deal. I would go back and stay at Meininger again.
