“Great location, nice hostel”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Great location right in between the train station and the city centre. Key card activated lockers and cheap meals offered in the bar. Bathrooms could be cleaner, but I understand that's hard with so many people going in and out of them all the time. Kitchen is terrible and only open from 11am onwards meaning you can't cook your own breakfast. Discounted tours offered as well as bike rentals and it really is neat to watch The Sound of Music with a bunch of other fans in Salzburg! Cheap laundry prices too. Bunks are uncomfortable if you're over 5 ft 7 in.

Great location, 5min walk away old town. the bars that the hostel recommended on their city map are also really cool chilled out bars with lots of variety in beers. Great locker system in rooms that only your key card an open. Happy hour drinks €2 each night. Clean hostel, there is always staff cleaning throughout the day. Would say here again. There are that many people stopping at the hostel there is not a personal touch with the staff as they are busy all the time.

This hostel was comfortable. The rooms were good with comfy beds. They could do with more toilets and showers on each level though cause there is always a que. Also the kitchen area has only a fridge and 2 microwave so you can't really do any proper cooking. Close to the city centre.

Great location, great set-up! Rooms are clean, could do with more charging points though! Showers are decent. The restaurant is good value and staff are friendly. One of the best we stayed in on our travels.

About 10 minutes walk from the station, and decent location to visit the major attractions in Salzburg. Can't stay much about the staff, but its good for a night's sleep. Be careful with the 10 am checkout deadline. They take a 5 euros deposit for the key. I missed the checkout deadline by 5 minutes, and didn't get my money back.

Pros: location - close to main train station. Lots of info on available tours.

Cons: room was hot hot hot! Small window didn't help. Uncomfortable bed. Noisy. No sleep. Awful!
Self catering kitchen was a joke - two microwaves, a kettle, a fridge and a total of five pieces of cutlery in the basement. And they closed the kitchen in the morning until 11am so you had to buy their breakfast for €3.50 if you wanted to eat at the hostel.

A short walk from the train station, and great listed directions made it easy to find. Helpful staff on arrival (English speaking), clean and tidy hostel. €5 key deposit which also gives access to a locker in your room. Simple basin in the room and showers &toilets were a short walk away. Very comfy beds! Very reasonable breakfast of €3. Also, the hostel shows 'the sound of music' every night at 7pm
