we stayed in a private room which was actually situated in one of the local womens house next door...but it was great and very comfortable ...was nice to stay with some of the locals surrounded by the city walls which look over the area...gets the legs pumping to get there climbing all the steps with luggage but the staff are brilliant and recommended some great places to eat and have a beer...I would definitely stay again and recommend for anyone wanting to stay in the old town!

Overall this is a good base for travelling around Salzburg- Whilst is has more of a hotel feel rather than a hostel I would def recommend it. Facilities were very good. The hostel was very clean- the location is a bus journey into centre of the city or about a 25 min walk.

This hostel is a nice place to relax for a few days. Whilst there were a number of issues (internet / credit card facilities on the blink and door jamming) this did not deter from the brilliant time we had here. The food is amazing- especially the all you can eat bbq. There are a number of tours that you can do through the hostel- which appear to be good value.

FREE dinner is amazing!! We had empanadas, pizza & bbq(additional money). There is a bar joining the hostel- but we couldn't hear any music when we were trying to sleep. The walls are thin enough so you can hear ppl during the night. The staff were really helpful & the walk to the main plaza was about 10 mins stroll.

We only stayed in the hostel for one night as we were only passing through Puno- but this hostel was perfect for this. We were collected by the owners from the bus station (about a euro extra). Then we booked our onward journey through the hostel & the next morning dropped us back to the bus station & even carried our bags onto the bus for us.. The owners go out of there way. Pancakes in the morning were lovely too. Good spot.

Hostel is situated near the majority of hostels in Brisbane. It is a walk to the city centre- depending on where you want to go this walk can be between 5-35 minutes. Hostel was very busy- sometimes difficult to get space to cook in the kitchen and get a seat in the eating area- as this is also the internet area. Rooms were very clean- so were the toilets. Overall good hostel

The hostel was in a very good location- near to shops/ restaurant & beach. The hostel itself looks very good from the outside. We were a group of 5 ppl in an 8 bed dorm. 2 long stays had taken over the room. It was messy & not the standard of other hostels. The pub nxt to the hostel was excellent. We got free drink for the majority of the night (random free drink night). What's not to love!
