The place is not exactly close to Altstadt, but it's not more than 15 minutes walk. The surrounding landscape is beautiful and the staff are nice. Big kitchen for backpackers and people travelling on a budget.

Staying at Muffin Hostel was an absolutely great decision! As a solo traveller this place was so good to meet other people, and the garden is a really cool hangout to facilitate that. Free muffins at reception on a regular basis! Only issue was a particular staff member wasn't having the best day when myself and 4 other guests were checking in so it took over an hour. When Jadzia was on shift things actually got done and she was always very happy and helpful too, more staff like her please!

It took really long for the receptionist to check us in, but it seemed like she was new and had difficulties to cope with all the guest who kept arriving all by herself, so it's okay.

Location was kind of out of the way but they made up for it with the muffins. The fooseball was immaculate. The ping pong was crazy and the staff were wonderful. Sylvia especially. She was engaging with the guests and redefined what it means to be hospitable. Would definitely come back again!

This hostel has huge potential, a student halls turned into a hostel for the summer. Facilities are excellent, bar, table tennis, great garden etc. bit of a walk from town however. But you'll meet like minded travellers and have a good time.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Though the location is not ideal it is fairly easy to walk over to the castle and then into the old part of the city. The dorms are very secure and comfortable.

Location is inconvenient. Buses are rare and need to walk a bit. Its a pain at night. Some staff aren't able to speak English and hence can't help us. Rooms are too small and crammed. There were no locks for the room door or the bathroom door. This is an absolute must when we share rooms. The place was clean though. I feel there is a lot of room for improvement.

The hostel was good, the only problem we had was that at night there were few people listening music and making noise, so they were difficulting us to sleep peacefuly.

It's a great hostal ! It's not in the main city center but it's very easy to get there. Just one bus from the train station. The rooms are nice and very clean. They have 2 kitchens so you can cook. I loved the garden too ! But the best of all is the bar :DDD I met some awesome people there and had a great time. Sylvia y Marzena, you're the best !:D Gracias x todo !

Muffin is a very nice hostel in a good, quiet location, but close to the city centre, a 15min walk. Staff were extremely helpful, went to great lenghts to make everyone feel welcome. Bathrooms and toilets were clean, beds really comfy. Overall a great experience, if I come to Salzburg again, I'll definitely stay there! Cheers

I really enjoyed my stay at Muffin Hostel. The freshly baked muffins they serve you at check-in are scrumptious. My room was very clean even though I shared it with 3 persons I didn't know (initially at least). I really loved the hostel's spacious garden and the fact that it's situated in a calm place, but it only takes 15 mins on foot to get to the city centre. All in all, it's great place to stay at if you're planning to go to Salzburg.

Was a really great place and I stayed another night longer than expected! Really great location for exploring the city (just 10-15 walk to the old town) and to get to the Hauptbahnhof, just one bus. The staff is energetic and friendly and they gave me many suggestions for good restaurants The rooms are small, but the hostel is inexpensive, so it all evens out. The bar has a great vibe and I was able to organise trips around Salzburg with others I met there.

Had a great stay for the third year in a row. It's always really clean and the friendly and professional staff will help you however they can. There was a bbq for all the guests since it was such nice wheater and everyone was invited. Afterwards the party moved to the bar :)

Good hostel for decent price. They have a huge garden with bbq area, which is great to meet other people when you're a solo traveler. The wifi worked fine.

Only a short walk from the old city, this hostel was honestly one of the best I've stayed in. The staff make the environment a really comfortable place; be sure to make friends with Zuza and Jadzia if you go!

One of the best hostels we stayed during our travel ! Really nice (and beautiful, and polish!) staff with very good taste in music. One more good thing: there is only ONE guy ;) If you don't know what to do during the night, just go to the bar and follow the staff, they KNOW where to have really good fun ! (a little tip: if you want to impress them, order a shot of Vodka at the bar ;p )

Not overly impressed with this place. You only got one key per room which you had to leave in reception when you left the room, which themselves had no lockers in them. The place looked and felt more like a hospital in the main corridors. On the upside it wasn't too far to walk into town and there was a kitchen which was good. The staff were helpful.

Nothing to complain about. They gave me a free muffin.
