    Very nice place close to the central station and just around 15 mins walk to the center! We got upgraded due to corona and had a pleasant stay.

    Right next to the train station and just 15 min walk from the city center. There were no lockers or cabinets in my room. Everything was clean.

    The location is practical, but the area around train stations are always a bit unsafe at night. We did not experience any problems, but it's difficult to feel perfectly safe when arriving. The hostel in itself seemed very safe. The room was very clean (a little bit of dust on the ground but other than that, no complains!) It seemed that health safety was applied accordingly (during Covid-19). The staff was very nice. Overall the value for money was very good. I will come here again if needed.

    A nice hostel close to Salzburg Hauptbahnhof. I had a good time here and no problems. The only thing that felt strange to me was one cannot pay for breakfast on the very morning if one has to check out that day. Breakfast if needed had to be reserved the day before.

    The hostel was fine. There was nothing I'd go back for as it was very generic and the atmosphere was poor. On the plus sides the room was big, location excellent and they were reasonably priced. There's no major reason not to come here as nothing was terrible but it also had nothing special to offer.

    Difference between hostelworld pictures and actual room. The room was dark and depressive and the blinds didn't function. The window did not close and thus we were cold at night. The personnel wasn't that friendly.

    I made a booking online. When I arrived, I was told I could not check in due to corona virus. I had nowhere to else to live and regulations allowed for accommodation to provide for emergency housing situations like mine, but OK, fine, I will accept it. BUT as a final kick in the ass, the hostel still charged me for the entire booking despite my not having even stayed for a single night. And now I'm gone and can't even complain to get a refund. Terrible, heartless business. Go anywhere but a&o.
