The youth hostel St Gilgen is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts as it's directly across from the beach at Lake Wolfgang where there is windsurfing, sailing, water-skiing and diving. The hostel is also an ideal base for Nordic walking, mountain biking and hiking in the surrounding mountains and Almenwelt.

The rooms are equipped with shower and toilet. You can choose between single, double and quadruple rooms and the kitchen offers a breakfast buffet, half and full-board options with a vegetarian option too.

And after a busy day exploring the area then there's lots to do at the hostel. We offer cable TV, a sauna, table tennis and lots of cosy lounges where you can relax.

Great rate, nice location, clean and large room, and a decent breakfast buffet. Bring your own towel and be aware that the front desk is not staffed for the early part of the afternoon.
