We booked one day of staying in this hostel, believing that we will get double rooms, we paid for them, but for our surprise we've got twins. The place was clean, but the cleaning lady was pressing us to leave the room around 10.00, even though we had the room until 11.00. So this place it is way expensive for... More

Is was a nice stay, good value price-accomodation. The staff was very friendly, young also, perhaps they were students. I would recommend because is has a good price and a lovely location, near the river where you can see funny ducks.

I don't know why this place as the word hostel in its name. If you're like me thinking it'll be one in the traditional sense of a room with bunk beds, community kitchen and social room, there is none of that here. Just two twin beds in a rooms. This is fine if you want to be alone, but if... More

Dorm with great location (by the Salzach, 5 minutes walking distance from the old town, hauptbahnhof, shops) is turned into a hostel for the summer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice and tidy, the kitchens are modern, but they lack utensils as dorm inmates bring and use their own, so be prepared for that or pay... More

Located along the Danube, it is a pleasant 15min stroll from the old town along the river. We came during the Salzburg Festival which was a very busy time of the year. The staff are very nice and accomodating and try really hard. The rooms are basic at most. A bed, table and bathroom. The sheets are a very thin... More

The location is good, between the train station and the old town and right on the river. The rooms were clean. The beds were very crammed in the 4 person rooms. The staff were polite and helpful.

The hostel is in a lovely-looking building, although the inside is a little sparse. Relatively well priced, for a private room anyway, and the location is semi-close (walking distance), with nice views of the river. Free wifi is provided, but only in the lobby, which was a let-down for us, but there are some other good facilities available (washer/dryer, etc).... More
