Liked: Close to the hills, free breakfast

Disliked: Not enough showers (only 2 in the entire place), very hard to find, I walked around for quite a whiole befor finding this cave at the back of a retail store which was the entrance. I was really worried when I first came in this place would be a nightmare juts because of the entrance, but it's actually not as bad it seems.

Liked: Great location. Great price.

Disliked: The ski lifts open at 8:30, but don't dare be up before 9am in this hostel or you'll be the ridicule of the staff and guests. If you're a 'first lift' kind of person, you're not welcome.

Liked: Snowbunny's probably the best value for money in Kitzbuhel. It's clean, well-located, and sufficiently equiped. DAVE - the tenant - is great, he LOVES to talk, he's very interesting and he always arranged us fairly with our last minutes booking and cancellations.

Disliked: Not much... might seem a bit pricey for a hostel, but once you know Kitzbuhel, you understand it's a pretty good deal !

Liked: Dave and his wife are wonderful people to meet, to chat and to hear super funny stories. Everyone has to meet them! :) It's also a great place to meet people, especially an old friend of Dave's! ;) The backpackers is a nice cozy house with a full kitchen, living room space with lots of TV satellite channels. It's also very close to the train station and the cable car, a perfect start for a hiking day. Just be careful to get off at the right train station when you first arrive (Kitzbuhel Hannenkam). Although Kitzbuhel is more known for it's winter ski slopes, its summer activities and hiking paths can rival them.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: This is a great little hostel for the skiier on a budget (or even a boarder!); it's friendly, cosy, and warm, and a great place to relax and chill out after a busy day on the slopes. The staff are all really friendly and helpful (thanks Dave!), and I really appreciated the discount at the ski-rental shop next door. If I come back next year, this is where I'll be staying!
