We paid 23 Eur each per night for 1 bed apiece (3 beds in total) in Aug-14 in what is decidedly a costly city to tour. For this price, we got a good-looking hostel, helpful and nice folks at the reception, a spacious common area (with free wi-fi), elegant 4-bed dorm rooms with excellent bedding, roomy cupboards, two pairs of...

This is a good, clean, friendly, looks new feels new hotel. However, it is quite a far walk from the train station if you come there. Food super market about 10 mins walk from the hostel. Kitchen is big and with everything you need to cook. Would recommend!

Dear Su, thank you for sharing your opinion with us. We are glad that you liked our kitchen and felt welcome in our hostel. We are located close to the city center, but the main train station itself is a bit far away from the old town - it is possible to get there directly by bus number 1 or...

We spent over 60 euros on a double private room. We then had to: 1. Make our own beds 2. Take our sheets off the bed in the morning and put them in a bin in the reception area 3. There were towels, but we had to ask for them 4. Check out is at 10:00am so we were rushed...

A nice hostel that offers everything you really need at a relatively low price. Staff are friendly, helpful and available 24/7. They can recommend what to do and where to go for food, and have maps to show you this. Pros: clean rooms, comfy beds, free towels, cheap bar, cheap laundry room, kitchen, warm and powerful showers, friendly staff Cons:...

We booked Muffin as it was at a good price point in Salzburg. We booked a private room with own bathroom for one night. Our room (16) itself was nice and clean. However having to dress our own beds upon arrival after a long train journey was annoying. We then went into the city to explore Salzburg which is a...

Me and my Girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights and we can honestly say it was one of the most demoralising and frustrating experiences. Initially booked 2 beds in a 3 person dorm, yet when we arrived the gentleman at the reception said that due to overbooking we were actually staying in 2 separate dorms with 2 other people each....

I stayed here with a summer program for a month and it was very homey! Spacious rooms, clean and modern. There is a wifi and a large kitchen on every floor. The location is good for going into town or grocery shopping. I would recommend this for younger or older people, it is also family friendly which is great.

We stayed here for two days during the Salzburg festival time. Though rooms are pretty small the general facilities pretty much make up for the same. Their welcome muffin is also nice. Garden area for get together is also good

Can't say that this was the most pleasant experience. If you're looking for a hostel environment, this really isn't one because the "dorms" only hold three people. It's evident that this hostel was a student accommodation before being converted. Although clean, the staff are still rather new and inexperienced. Seven of us stayed here for two nights, and there was...

“I stayed in Salzburg on 18-20th July for 3 days. I remember this hostel because the hostel very clean and good, especially kind people !! I heard that this hostel used for dormitory from other guests(I don't really know about that.). I cook some pork steak with Korean noodle(called ramen) and a cute and kind lady told me 'hello~' and we talked a lot. Sylwia Świerczyńska that is you : ) . Thx this hostel and Sylwia Świerczyńska for giving good memory ~! If you have chance to visit Asia, please visit Korea! ^^ Thank you for kindness!!”
