The Hostel offers several different room choices with different bed configurations. The furnishings are spare and rooms are small but pleasant and very clean. A recent renovation allowed for wonderful updated bathrooms. It is convenient to everything in the city and located on a beautiful walking street. They have limited parking available for an added (reasonable) price but are very...

Amazing location on the beautiful Linzergasse -- the gateway from the new half of the city to the Altstadt (old city). Close to Mirabell Gardens and the train station, and bus lines etc. So wonderful to walk down the charming pedestrian street to the river and into Altstadt. Basic but nice & private rooms. Even the "shared rooms" have only...

Our group of 8 stayed at the Institut St Sebastian this summer. Such a beautiful little place hidden away off the beaten path. My family of 3 had a rather large room with bunk beds and 2 singles along with plenty of dresser space, and a table with 4 chairs. The bathroom was clean and also pretty spacious. The rooms...

The hostel is situated in a great part of the city. It is very close to the main center of Salzburg, only about a 5 minute walk to the old town. It is situated in a pedestrian area meaning that there is no traffic noise. Very quiet and peaceful. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Although it is...

Salzburg is an expensive city to lodge and this place could be an option if your budget limited. Is very simple, but is clean, no loud because of the double glass, it is in a very good location and the breakfast is between basic to a bit poor but is ok. If you have a car, you can get a...

We stayed here for one night. It was reasonably comfortable but not great. Its biggest plus is its location. The breakfast is included and is pretty decent. All in all, okay but don't expect too much from the place

When my wife and I stayed there we were treated very courteously. The place is a college dormitory. Our room was very spacious which we pleasantly surprised. Where we stayed is a short walk fro the bridge that crosses over to the old town, when we go again we will stay there again. If you walk from the train station...

We stayed here for six days in August, 2015. Everything about it was homey, smooth and comfortable. The other people who stay there are helpful in providing information on where to go and how to optimize your time and money. The room was comfortable and had double windows, which keeps any noise out. There is a common cooking area and...

When searching for a place to stay in Salzburg in August, I found many high-priced options and fully-booked hotels due to the Salzburg Music Festival taking place. I learned about Institut St. Sebastian and was pleasantly surprised to find they had availability at a very reasonable price. The location is very good. It took about 10-15 minutes to walk there...
