I stayed at this hostel with my husband mainly because it was the closest to the city center with parking for the price. It was fine. Not amazing, not terrible. We stayed in a 4 person dorm room for 2 nights. Both nights we were fortunate to have quiet roommates. Everything seemed fairly clean which is a top priority for me in a hostel. They have separate bathrooms for boys and girls which I liked (no walking in on a dude brushing his teeth and flexing for the mirror in his underwear - this has happened elsewhere and I prefer to avoid it if possible). There are only two toilet and shower stalls but I never had to compete for them.
It is a decent walk to the city center, but not bad. We had read reviews before we came about how long the walk in would take us. Perhaps we just had very low expectations but we didn't find the walk troublesome at all. Plus it gives you the opportunity to walk through the tunnel which we both found interesting. We found everything that Salzburg built into the mountain fascinating.
All in all, it's an average stay. The staff is nice but not overly so. The rooms are clean but somewhat uncomfortable. The location is fair. This goes for the price too. Good not great.
