    If you’re looking for a comfortable place to crash for the night close to the train station, this is the perfect place. If you’re looking for a social hostel or unique atmosphere, then you probably won’t find it here.

    Highly recommended. We booked two beds in a four bed dorm and when we got there we felt the people we would be sharing with might be a bit shady. The receptionist moved us to another private room without hesitation and free of charge, which we were very thankful for. Also very clean. Location is perfect, next to the train station and all amenities and a 20 min walk from the old town.

    My experience at the A&O in Salzburg was much much better than the one I had in Vienna. Covid guidelines were followed and areas were clean. The proximity to the Salzburg Bahnhof was perfect and with Salzburg being a smaller city, nearly everything was within walking distance. The breakfast buffet was fully stocked with a solid assortment of food, and the luggage lockers offered affordable rates for an assortment of sizes. Most of all, staff were friendly and helpful!

    I got a private room, which was very nice for the money. It's just a bit far from the city center; 25-35 minutes walking. And it's right next to the train station, which is convenient for arriving and leaving, but can also be sketchy walking home at night.

    The manager was extremely helpful, nice facilities but the guest kitchen is windowless and with very little kitchenware. Low water pressure but clean room and very close to centeral train station.

    Very Good

    We had a good stay here. Location was great! Close to the train station and local sights. Staff were very helpful. Our bathroom was never cleaned during our whole stay. The kitchen is very small for how big the hostel is and lacks kitchen items. We had a long wait every night to use the only one stove top in the whole kitchen.

    Very good location. Room clean and quite big. Now, I don't want to say staff in general , but stuff member was very unkind and not really helpful. The parking described in the description is just an external paid parking not hotel parking, so why bother writing about it? And the most absurd guest kitchen system ever, you give 20 euro deposit and then they give you box with kitchenware you take to the kitchen and use. To sum it up, it is realtively cheap, but I advise to go somewhere else.

    We are two girls and we only stayed there for one night but we got dirty bed sheets wich you have to pay for them and we got into a room with very old men staring at us from the bed. At the start it was very bad... we were very scared there is a lot of old smelly and dirty guys around. But it is true that the girl that made our check in was very nice and changed our room to one with only two girls. So it was fixed. Still rooms are pretty dirty and with food around.

    No baggage storage facility provided provided by the hostel. You have to pay to keep your luggage in railway-station-like lockers. The rooms have lockers but are small in size and only a few.
