Was such a nice homely vibe the staff were really helpful, rooms were amazingly comfortable, the socialising areas were nice and having a big kitchen was great! The area itself is also amazing can't wait to come back.
Awesome place to stay and see the Wildschönau valley, booked 4 nights and ended up staying 6. awesome staff that are super helpful.
Fantastic staystay, highly recommend it if you looking to escape the cities and see some true Austrian countryside. Really friendly atmosphere and wonderful staff, you could nearly be at home when you stay here.
Felt like a home away from home! Didn't want to leave it was such a great atmosphere and really felt not at all like a hostel but more like a family and a place to call ur home.

Emma and Marty made us feel so welcome at Apsley and were extremely helpful. There is a big kitchen that the guests can use as well as a nice big chill out room with a TV and DVDs. Rooms were nice and cosy, felt like you were staying at a friends house.
Had a great stay, would definitely recommend anyone and everyone to stay here and the staff were lovely too :)
We found this hostel to be absolutely amazing. As soon as we arrived we knew it would be a good stay. Staff make you feel very comfortable and the vibe within the hostel is as welcoming and warming as being at your own home. Would recommend Apsley to everyone!

One of the best hostels we have stayed at. The staff are incredible, extremely helpful and so nice! The kitchen was excellent! Everything worked and there were plenty of plates/cups/pots/pans etc. The rooms were great! And the location is really good, a few minutes walk from the chair lift and a grocery store. Since it's fairly small you get to meet most of the other guests and get to know them. It has a very homely feel. We absolutely loved it!
The staff were friendly and joined us for a meal. They went out of their way to assist us with bookings and directions. The paragliding was awesome!
This place was amazing in the summer. The couple who were running it, Emma & Marty, were sooo lovely! They went above and beyond! There weren't many of us, so they put us 3 girls in a 5 person family room. Bathrooms were clean. Nice homey common area. You got a Card on arrival that allowed free cable car access to the top of the mountains. Kitchen was good, access to everything needed. DVD lounge room was great. Austria is cheap! Supermarket is a short walk. They did our washing for us for €4!
really recommend apsley ski lodge. Emma and Marty were amazing hosts, with a wealth of knowledge of wildschonau valley and very helpful and honest. the rooms were mostly two beds and had their own ensuite which is awesome when travelling. it was the most laid back place I've stayed at and I really enjoyed the movie nights and group dinners that we made in their kitchen. I also really recommend paragliding if you stay in wildschonau valley. this has been my favourite stop on my trip so far.
I really enjoyed my time at this hostel. The staff were extremely hospitable and helpful. The Apsley Ski Lodge definitely felt more like a home than a hostel.
Great little place to stay. Nice and quite. Good place to relax. Plenty of hiking trails and plenty of places to explore
Absolutely loved this place. Beds and duvets were heavenly. Staff went out of their way to be helpful. Free kitchen (including stove, microwave, fridge and kettle). There was a fire pit and bbq in the back yard and we roasted marshmallows and hung around the campfire both nights I was there. Only issue is that there are no lockers in the rooms. I knew nearly everybody that was staying there though, so I wasn't too concerned about this. Close to grocery store and mountain lifts. Loved it!
Great stay! Staff was AMAZING (friendly, helpful, and always around). Very clean rooms and great atmosphere. Hostel was close to enough stuff to keep us busy for the two days we were there. Have no complaints! Thanks!
Such a cozy and inviting place to stay! It was almost like one big family with the shared dining area yet there was privacy in all of the accommodations! The staff were very fun and helpful! Definitely would stay again!
Hostel wasn't run by locals and they couldn't give advice on hiking trails in the region even though this was the main summer pastime. Maps provided were for ski runs only. Had to go to next town to get advice about hiking and a trail map.
Wifi pretty much didn't exist, even in common areas. The breakfast was toast and cereal only but no milk was made available and the butter (just a blob on a plate for everyone to share) looked like it had melted and then re-hardened. No tea and coffee made available at breakfast at all, though the manager sat down to a lovely pot of percolated coffee ..... Kitchen facilities for customers were disgusting with big buckets of scrapes left on the counter all day, no glass plate in the microwave
