    Very well located, 3 blocks away from Salzburg hbf. I stayed in a double room, it was spacious, beds comfortable and the private bathroom very clean. I highly recommend you stay at an A&O hostel anywhere you are... Really good quality stays!

    Was good, it is quite hard to navigate the insides, also there was a suspicious cloth under the bed... Other than that, good experience

    Value for money. Simple dorms with good lockers (bring your padlock). 1 bathroom for 6/8 people is not great. BKF available for extra in the dining area. Interior looks more like a hotel (endless corridors you can get lost in). Staff super friendly.

    Room was small and a bit dark, but clean and the cleaning staff were very friendly. Reception staff was not very friendly. When you book a mixed dorm on the website, it’s actually a male dorm; they only have female or male dorms, no mixed available. Not the nicest part of town, 20 minute walk to the old town/centre. Big common area, but no one really hanging around there.

    This was ran like a hotel and not a hostel. You are charged for every little thing. The luggage storage is pay. The kitchen has nothing in it, maybe that is due to covid. We could not cook at all, which was the entire point of staying at a hostel. The staff was not rude but not pleasant either. The room (twin) was very nice and comfortable. Private bath was clean. Wish we could stay longer but checkout is 10am and they will change you if you stay late.

    The staff was rude. We waited 3 hours before we get checked in. Receptionist need to get some training. No customer service skill at all. We have to pay for linen. My first time to experience this!!

    The hostel is located very close to the train station, which is convenient. However the unfriendly staff were very cold and didn’t make you feel welcome. As a solo traveller it was almost impossible to meet people other than in your dorm. You must also pay for bed linen! The kitchen facilities are awful, there is a microwave and an induction cooker, however no bowls, cutlery, pots and pans to cook anything in.
