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.

We had a very well appointed room with ensuite. Very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a good breakfast and evening meals. The staff were extremely helpful and we really enjoyed our stay at St Gilgens.
