6/10 Good

Could have been better.
The room wasn't as clean as it should have been, there was a curtain missing and there were no glasses to drink from.

A good budget option.
Close to the train station. Convenient area but not so nice, yet within walking distance to the historic centre. The hostel is basic yet functional.

Very good value for the money
I have stayed here before, and find the location nearly perfect. For a weary traveler arriving in Salzburg by train, it is only A5 minute walk. Check in is easy, and the amenities are adequate. The en-suite bathrooms were clean and well organized, separating the toilet completely from the shower area. Both areas were also very well maintained (I was placed in room 110). I looked at the breakfast on offer, and while there was an adequate selection, I had breakfast after buying items are the SPAR Supermarket in Hbf Salzburg. It was a very nice stay. I'll come again.

Super convenient to main station! Walls are paper thin, but I always travel with ear plugs so I didn’t mind. The beds are also pretty hard, so if you have a sensitive back wouldn’t recommend.
