Give your hostel more character, it feels desolate and sad when you arrive in the afternoon and the front desk isn't open. If I hadn't had a reservation and saw that the hostel in the state that it was at 2pm, I would have left and looked for somewhere else to stay.
How to start? Well this is not the nicest place to stay. Not really clean, my sister got bugs in her 'clean' sheets. Somebody got there passport stolen when we were there and I got my toilet pouch with my tooth brush stolen also... The breakfast, not worth it! Older people rent there too, no ambiance it is very weird place. Couldn't wait to leave that place. I recommend that you book somewhere else other hostels or hotel or airbnb!
Its a typical youth hostel with newly made beds, we only stayed for one night, which was okay. i liked that breakfast was included.
you must pay 3 euro par day if you wanna get wifi.
Average hostel, you have to pay to cook and for Internet. Staff were quite helpful when needed though.
The rooms are pretty cramped. The bathrooms need a revamp or epic proportions. They still look like they were the originals from when the Olympics were in Innsbruck way back in the day. There is almost no atmosphere. The common room is more of a dead room where no noise is allowed. Wifi signal is not the best and the connection is rather slow. Good thing at least is that the night busses run frequently past the hostel.
Nice place to stay. The curfew hours start as early as 10 pm ...lights are dimmed, which is a bit depressing. The best part is the breakfast, quite wholesome. The duvet covers are bit rough.
Good kitchen however you have to pay for the use of the stove. There's no lift. Bathrooms are annoying, the basins and the shower are altogether therefore makes having a shower difficult. Beds are comfy. Must pay for wifi. Free breakfast that it standard.

We stayed at the Innsbruck Youth Hostel for four nights. The cost of the room was very cheap and therefore we didn't expect to have, for example, free internet access (which we didn't get). Some of the people staying there were angry at this, but my friend and I just went to local coffee shops. The hostel was clean. The building clearly originated from the 1976 Winter Olympics that took place at Innsbruck (sort of like an old Olympic village). All in all, it was good.
Lost to the 1970's this hostel is not realistic today.I stayed here 12 years ago, nothing improved, not even the sun faded pictures from 1976. A soulless place, outside building looks appalling, inside no character or atmosphere. Staff reluctant to give you your own key if you are more than one person. MUST PAY FOR WIFI €3.00/day. VERY POOR. Kitchen MUST PAY FOR ELECTRICITY/COOKER USE. SHOCKING YHA.As a YHA member, disgusted.Only reason this place has survived= no competition.NO LOVE/improvment
I had some trouble finding the 'Sillpark' bus stop. I waited at the wrong stop for quite some time before I asked a local where bus O would stop. Other than that I had no other problems. The staff was great and very helpful!
Nice free breakfast, location was a bit out of town but easy to access by bus. Wifi not included and when bought it was not available in the roon, but this may be standard for Youth hostels. Good budget accommodation option.
Just add 3 euros to your room price as they charge for wifi(3 euros a day) and it only works in the common area. Was surprised as it isn't 1999 anymore. Other that that a good place to sleep, and a nice breakfast.
Innsbruck was a lovely town, and the hostel gave you a great view of the mountains! It was a bit ridiculous you had to pay to use the cooker (microwave
A bit of distance from city centre, but easily reached by bus. Tiniest dorms I've seen, actually seen bigger prison cells for one person and they had 6 in the dorm. Poorly maintained bathroom facilities. Horrible check-in times, very bad security around the entrance. Not a very nice hostel. But the city is georgeous.
Amazing, helpful and very nice, always smily team at the reception desk :-).
The hostel was built in 1976 and it looks like it has not been renovated since. You have to pay 3 Euros to use the Wifi and you also apparently have to pay to use the kitchen.
Lockers does not work in the room, my room was cleaned once in a week. Kind of a walk to town but beautiful located near the mountains. Nice staff. Large place, no place to meet new people.
