Situated at lake Wolfgangsee, next to the beach, the hostel is a paradise for watersports fans. Moreover, the unique lake and mountain scenery offers a wide range of leasuretime activities. All rooms (recently renovated) have private shower & toilet (bed linen is provided, please bring your own towels). Please note: reception times are Monday-Sunday 8-10 & 17-19. Please let us know if you will arrive outside our business hours, so that we can deposit the key for you.

Sports, nature, culture and watersports at the lake: the holiday region Wolfgangsee offers the full holiday fun-package.

Well located near lake. Nice staff. Simple rooms with reasonable breakfast. Good for travelling on a low budget.

I have to give bad score because it was not possible to decrease the power of the heaters. Consequently, the room became very hot. I could not open the windows because there was a road in front which became very noisy if any car passes by.

Mit Ausnahme des Orangenwassers beim Frühstück war alles hervorragend. Für den Preis kann man nicht mehr erwarten. Die Lage ist traumhaft. Die Zimmer funktional und komfortabel. Sehr empfehlenswert!
