Hostelworld says

In typical Meininger style, their Salzburg City Centre hostel spoils its guests on location. Sited close to the historic old town, you can explore all the city’s favourite sights, such as Mozart’s birthplace and the Festival Hall, on foot with ease. If retail therapy is your thing, then you’re right in Zentrum im Berg, the city’s shopping centre. But it’s not just the location that makes this hostel great. The bar is the perfect place to meet fellow travellers and bond over a game of pool or table football, and its kitchen helps keep food costs to a minimum.

Property Description

Welcome to MEININGER Hotel Salzburg City Center!

Servus and welcome! Salzburg is the home of the Mozartkugel, the Salzburg Festival and the Old Residence. But up to now there has been one thing missing - the new MEININGER Salzburg City Center. For your convenience, we've sited it close to the historic old town in the 'Zentrum im Berg' shopping centre on the Kapuzinerberg. From here you can easily explore on foot the sights of this 'world-class small town', such as Mozart's birthplace or the Festival Hall.

But you can also enjoy spending time in the hostel - in the morning why not go along to the breakfast room to enjoy our all-you-can-eat-and-drink breakfast buffet for 7,90€. At lunchtime or in the evening - if you've had enough of Salzburger Nockerl - you can make yourself a meal in our guest kitchen and get to know other guests from all over the world. Finish off the evening with a trip to the bar and have another chance to meet new friends. Or enjoy a clear view of the stars from our roof terrace.
The MEININGER is well-known for its unique and relaxed international atmosphere, and here in Salzburg it's combined with a laid-back feeling that is typically Austrian.

In the games room you can defend your honour at pool or table football or show off your singing voice at a karaoke evening. Or maybe you want to chat with your friends on our internet terminals in the lobby? If you've got your own laptop, WLAN is available free-of-charge in all our areas.

If you've been on the road for a while, you can use the washer and dryer in our guest kitchen to freshen up your laundry.

If you've got your skis with you or are using Salzburg as a stopover on your way to the slopes, your gear can be happily ensconced in our ski storage room.

And you can spend the night in a single, double or shared room. We also have a small mixed dormitory and a women-only dormitory. Please note that only people older than 18 years old are allowed to sleep in the dormitories! So that you don't get bored, every room has a TV and its own bathroom with shower and toilet. You can happily leave your bedding at home as at MEININGER it is always included in the price.

Very professionally run hostel with seamless check in, check out and other amenities such as room cleaning. The reception staff is super helpful, they went ahead to give me print outs of route maps and suggestions for trains etc. to plan a day trip. Conveniently located with several bus stations around, a mall next door, it makes for a comfortable stay whether you’re traveling in a group or solo.

Good location, well connected with public transport, rooms are FANTASTIC! Optional parking in the underground garage right next door for 12€ per 24 hrs was a great perk for us, as we arrived by car. The only downside was that it's a cash-free facility, so you can only pay by card, and I don't remember seeing this anywhere in the emails prior to arrival and seeing a sign at the front desk. Minor detail, but neither I nor my husband use credit cards and had to pay with a debit card.

The score of my review might be high, but I had a tough time here. Really wish I could look back at it with good memories, but the first night somehow a girl got into the room and peed in the middle of the room. The second day when I wanted to extend my stay (I asked for the price earlier) and somehow the price went up? I asked whether my bed would be cleaned and the answer was no, as I would stay in the same room. Next thing I know all my stuff on my bed is gone and I got half of it back...
