A ski hostel for skiers, backpackers, and families
Bahnhofsplatz 8 A-5640 ,
The Euro Youth is set right in the middle of Bad Gastein, only steps from the train station, restaurants, shops, and the gondolas to take you up the mountain. This fairly large hostel and hotel resides in a quaint building that has been refurbished on the inside to provide a comfortable and modern stay.
Both dorms and private rooms are available. Privates have ensuite bathrooms, while dorms have lockers, and modern bunks.
Free breakfast tops the list of amenities, along with free Wi-Fi and free parking. A nice common area makes for a good spot to mix with fellow travelers, and includes a pool table, foosball, TV with games, darts, and more. A hot tub on the outdoor terrace is open year-round. Laundry, luggage storage, tour booking, and bike rentals are also on offer.
The onsite restaurant is also a bar, and there are other nightlife spots around the small town as well.
Guest reviews state that the staff is very friendly, the atmosphere is quiet, and the free breakfast is terrific.
