It's not too hard to find, but the directions are not so good written. The rooms are fantastic, but you must pay for wifi...


very far from central station. however good place and great breakfast. also wifi had issues


Their internet connection is available only near reception, but the reception area is closed at night. So i can't use the internet at all in the evening. It's very disappointing for travelers. And their internet connection is very bad, too slow.

About a 20 minute bus from the centre, this hostel had very friendly staff, a pizza oven and was a very good price. Considering the salzburg card gives you free transport, I would highly recommend this hostel, even if it is a little difficult to find.


Have to work on the direction given to customer , I would suggest that they tell the customer to stop on the next bus stop instead of the one they suggested. It took me ages to look for the hostel.


A fantasticn hostel with a friendly staff and good facilities. It is quite far from the station though but public transit in Salzburg is cheap so it is not a big issue.


A little bit far out of the centre of town but accessible by bus, this hostel was pleasant and suited us for a one night stay. The staff were friendly and the rooms were clean, breakfast was a typical continental selection. The wifi connection wasn't great, only accessible in the lobby and for slots of time as opposed to continuous, which could be a problem if you're looking to book something online during your stay or just have a private conversation.


Building is nice and clean. Really great dorms!!! The free breakfast was really good! However, it was a lot further from the centre than I thought - walking took about 30 mins. Also, they made you pay for wifi, and there was no kitchen. It was the cheapest in Salzburg and ok for what you get.


Het is er schoon en het ontbijt is goed. Probleem is de afstand naar de stadscentrum ongeveer 3 km. Wel verblijf je in een prachtige omgeving en krijg je twee uur gratis wifi.


Rooms were clean, and very big lockers which was nice. Breakfast was great and lots of beautiful sitting areas in the back with a ping pong table and novelty-sized chess board :). Reception was nice and helpful except for one time when we went at 10am to ask a question and instead of answering the question she said, "reception closes at 10." Weird, but great experience otherwise.


A little too far out of town.


Wifi only available in the reception area is inconvenient.


My stay here was wonderful! The hostel is difficult to find, but here's a couple tips: you can take the 3 or 8 bus to Herrnau, and if you walk all the way down Egger-Lienz-Gasse (and I mean ALL THE WAY, past the Haus Humbolt), you'll find a trail in the woods. Walk straight along the trail, and you'll see a fence and gazebo appear on your side, and a building--that's the hostel. Once you hit the road from the forrest trail, it's on your right! Staff is friendly. Must pay for WiFi, 1 euro/hour.


This hostel is the most confortable I have ever stayed! It looks like a hotel. Its big, there is a big garden. The rooms are very big, with a nice window. The shower is amaing and it is inside the bedroom. The smell of the bathroom was not very good. The breakfast is the best with breads, 3 types of cheese, salami, juices, many different coffies. Its very cheap. The only bad thing is that is far from the center. But with a tram its just 10 minutes. Its also very quiet and fresh!!!


Quality of accommodation was good and clean. Unfortunately, as expected was a bit of a trek from Salzburg train station (by bus and then a confusing walk). Absolutely NO kitchen facilities, which is not mentioned, and there are no eateries within walking distance (especially on a Sunday!). Also very noisy at night - groups of children stay over summer who were still so loud (shouting, running up and down corridors, knocking doors) after 11pm that I had to complain several times, to little effect

Staff were amazing, really friendly and welcoming. Great place to stay.


I stayed there when there was a LARGE group of children. I didn't have to share a room with any of them, but it was still weird. Also, it was hard for me to find it from the train station. I don't remember seeing clear directions on how to find it, so I ended up walking, which took almost two hours and wasted a lot of my time in the city. The facilities were nice and clean, and that is the most important for me, so overall it was a decent stay.
