This place is very clean, quiet and a good deal if you are looking for a central location for a very reasonable price. We had our own room with a bathroom. There is a kitchen (2 burners - no oven - sink , fridge and microwave) on each floor and dishes, pots etc can be requested from the staff. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful.
I wouldn't recommend it for people who are travelling alone or are looking to meet other travelers. It's pretty big and a bit institutional. It is a university residence during the school year. It's also beside a church with a large bell that chimes every 15 minutes starting at 7 AM - so not for those who love to sleep in either.
The included breakfast is pretty basic - buns, tea or coffee, juice, jam and packaged turkey spread.

... went to a pub. I ordered a Berliner Weisser - a beer that is sweetened with fruit flavour & served with a straw. I enjoyed this much more than a regular beer, which is, of course, what Jared had. I had read about the curry wurst, so I went for it. Bratwurst covered in onions with ketchup & curry powder - surprisingly good. Jared had a huge pork leg with sauerkraut and dumpling. It was just what we expected for typical German pub ...
... we explore the Red Bull World Exhibit. There were planes, race cars, motorcycles and the astronaut suit belonging to Austrian Felix Baumgartener - the first man to set the world record for sky diving, an estimated 39km. We were then escorted upstairs to the ultra-modern restaurant. Jared went for the suggested menu of 10 courses but I wanted a slightly lighter menu & they accommodated me with ...
... and Sue completed some judicious purchasing (some would say "power-shopping"), we grabbed a dinner of schnitzels at a small local restaurant. Dessert this evening was a chamber-music concert at Schloss Mirabel, and at the concert's end, following our bus ride home, we fell deeply asleep.
Yesterday was "all Mozart, all the time". Touring the house where he was born, we learned about his parents and one surviving sister, and saw some ...
... for lunch.
Then we went into Zell am See to try and find some dinner. We parked near the center and walked down the main street, stopping at a few places to check out their menu. We chose the Steinerwirt, which turned out to be a great choice. I had the grostl, which is kind of like hash browns with pieces of potatoes and pork, and a fried egg on top. It was amazing. Although surprisingly, I liked the cabbage salad that came with it even more. ...
Woke 6.30am for a 8.00am (2 hour) bus trip to Salzburg. Thick fog - temperature 22. Arrived at Passau before breakfast, a beautiful baroque city that lies on the corner between Germany, Austria and Czech Republic. Bussed to Salzburg, setting for ‘The Sound of Music’ and birthplace of Mozart. It was the lamest guided tour yet. They had the bus group sing "16 Going On 17" at a Pavilion that was used as part ...
