The staff was simply fantastic. We arrived late (after reception closing time), they made a call, sent a mail and even an SMS, what to do in this case. Everything was all right and we could get our room.

We arrived at Salzburg very late in the evening. The city is impressive and people were friendly, a bus driver even offered to take us to the door of our hotel, to which no fellow travellers with us appeared to annoy. Upon arrival, we saw a small old lady who stood right at the door of the hotel (which is very small and of a house-size) to look out for her guests. The image right away reminded me of my grandma back home who used to gesture the same way when she received news that we would drop by. That old lady turned out to be a very humorous person who immediately made us feel like home. The rooms were not so big but we particularly liked their cleanliness. They gave us an impression that the hotel is run and taken care of by a very careful and thoughtful person who treats her guests like her relatives. Coffee and tea and snacks are free of charge and always ready at the reception. After our stay in a horrible hotel in Vienna, our stay in Salzburg was rewarding. If you look for a family-run hotel with a good value so that you could enjoy Salzburg as a countryside vacation, Cibuco may be a good choice.

It's easily accessible for people on a driving holiday and has plenty of parking. Getting into town was simple, about 10 mins by bus. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff spoke good English. The location is quiet, charming inner suburbs and even has some interesting historical walks about. Breakfast was tasty and varied. Wifi worked well. The place has a great restaurant, also popular with locals, which we ate in every night.

The hostel is a great location about 10 mins walk from the train station and another lovely 10 mins walk into the centre of Old Town along the river. The girl at the front desk was extremely helpful, even looking up train/bus times for my day trip out to Halstatt. The room was small, but clean and adequate with its own private bathroom and the best shower I had during my holiday in Europe. Overall, this hostel was great value for money and I'd definitely stay again.

We stayed in a private room and it was great. Large, clean rooms. Private bathrooms. Apparently this is a college dorm during the year...I would have killed for a dorm room like this at home!

Wonderful accommodation. Walking distance to HBF and main sights. Room was clean, comfortable and the breakfast is wonderful. More of a hotel than a hostel. Staff were extremely helpful and chatty.

This hotel was very nice, not only were the staff extremely helpful and the rooms were very clean and we were surprised to find champagne and chocolates. We were also very pleased to find that the hotel was not even a 10min walk from the stores and shopes in town.

Probably the most convenient aspect of this hotel is the location - it is very close to the train and bus station, as well as the city centre and has many local amenities. It is a charming little hotel, very pleasant in character and with a friendly feeling. The rooms are very nice and clean. I am a musician and had to practice a little during the day during my stay and this was also not a problem. The free wifi is also great!

The breakfast spread, and the newness of everything. There was also a lift which was great. The cleaning staff are also very professional, they made the beds and didn't move anything else. It was also a ten minute walk from the main station. The TV channels included AlJazeera, which was fantastic.

Location was only a couple minutes walk to the city center (Olde Towne) and about 15 - 20 minute walk to the train station. I rented a bicycle for about USD $5/day while I was in Salzburg so was able to get around with ease. Rooms were comfortable but I ended up having to change rooms my second night there. I came back to the room and my stuff was gone. Had to hunt it down. Staff was friendly and facilites were clean and in well repair. Breakfast was good and had free wi-fi in the lobby which is pretty typical. Overall a pleasant stay!

I had a Mozart dinner and concert across the river that began at 6:30 that I didn't know would lasted until 10:00pm. I was able to call the hotel during the intermission and let the attendant know I would be arriving later than the 10pm check-in time. She was very kind and gave me a code to get my key from outside. However, when I arrived a little before 11pm, she was still there and checked me in. Very great service!!! Moreover, I loved the central location. It's right behind the Crowne Plaza at the kongresshaus bus stop.
