More like a hotel than a hostel, and laundry facilities were constantly busy. However, very nice and clean and great rooms and beds, would stay here again.

I didn't want to leave my bed it was so comfortable. Definitely the top hostel I've been at on my whole trip. Good wifi, close to a great Austrian restaurant, bus stop is nearby. Pretty solid.

This isn't a hostel... this is a huge room with 9 beds inside an even larger hotel. The hotel is about 10 minutes by bus from the city centre and is full of school groups etcc. There is no atmosphere apart from with people in the dorm. That being said it is very clean as you would expect in a hotel.

Staff was great when we realized my friend and I only booked one bed instead of two. They set us up with no issues. Really clean place, wifi is good. City center is around a 15-20 minute walk. Breakfast is too expensive though, but they do have a lot to choose from

Pros: the hostel is in a decent location, offers the Salzburg Card for purchase at reception, is very clean, and plays the Sound of Music on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Cons: building had no personality, felt more like a hotel(which is my fault for booking a chain hostel), beds were not very comfy, breakfast is way overpriced (6,9 euro?! For cereal and bread?), lockers don't fit suitcases in them and are very noisy in rooms, and this may be more my personal issue - but beds are not assigned.

When I arrive the lady at reception was somewhat polite. I stayed in a 5 person dorm which was very clean despite it being full. The night porters were incredibly helpful! The hostel is a 15-20min walk away from town and the route is so straight forward. Breakfast is €6.90 which is over priced considering there is a supermarket less than 200 m away €20 for one night in a 5 person dorm 20 minutes from the centre is too much. I think it should be around €14

Dear Guest, thank you very much for sharing your feedback! It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay and liked our house. Our prices change everyday, also depending on the day of the week and how full our house is. So it could be that you where here during a "more expensive episode". Anyway, thank you for staying and we hope to welcome you again. Best wishes, Your MEININGER-Team

Clean place with nice staff. Short bus ride from the main train station. Only a 10 minute walk into the city center. Breakfast is alright, but overpriced. Grocery store right up the street, very convenient. Guest kitchen is on the small side, but it always worked out. Each bed has a light and plug for charging. Decent sized lockers in the room and smaller ones downstairs if necessary. There is also a hike into town just behind the hostel... I would suggest tackling it.

Great place to stay. Everything was clean and had a great atmosphere for young travelers. We met a ton of people just making dinner in the kitchen. Downside, only one washer and dryer and they are the kitchen....makes the space difficult to work in sometimes.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for sharing your feedback. You'r right regarding the location, it is a little walk to the old town. But there are bus stops leaving just in front of the hotel, our staff is always happy to help you find the best bus for you. We would love to welcoming you again soon. Best wishes, Your MEININGER-Team

It was a very nice hostel to stay. Very clean and organized. Took about 20 mins to get to the center, which was okay. I'd stay there again

It is not located in the city centre, quite far from the train station and old town. Other than that, everything is good.

Location is not idea for anyone looking to have easy access to Altstadt. Expect to walk at least 25 minutes to get where you want to go. Otherwise, the facilities were fantastic and the rooms were very clean!

I left my keys at the hostel and e-mailed the hostel to notify them about it. They responded really quickly and were more than happy to help me get it from the room and kept it at the reception till I returned from Hallstatt. However, when I reached there, I realized that I left my toiletries in the room too, they weren't able to help me open the door as they said it will screw up the other card keys of the people in the room. Maybe you guys could have a spare key?

In a dorm of 10 the place had just one bathroom and one toilet ... The wait was just endless. Similarly for the entire hostel they had only one washing machine and one dryer... The wait was intolerable I had todo my laundry at 1.00 am. Breakfast was average and the price was exorbitant at nearly 7 euros

Love the Meininger places. Always a good stay. Staff was nice and took care of the noise problem all the high shool kids were making.

Stayed in a dorm. My only gripe is that the ventilation in both the room and the toilet is poor. The ventilation fans in the toilet and bathroom are not working. Ventilation is poor in the room is poor because other guest don't want to open the windows because of the cold. So a ventilation system would be very much appreciated. Another small point is that there were no hooks (for clothes, etc) in the bathroom. Other than that, everything else is expected for the price you pay.
