The Steinachhof...

...stands in the middle of Saalbach Hinterglemm, one of the best known and most popular holiday destinations in Austria. The Steinachhof is between the resorts of Saalbach and Hinterglemm, at about 1,040 m above sea level, and makes the ideal base for lots of different sports and activities, both in summer and in winter. In addition, this youth hostel of course has all the amenities to help make your stay in this unique region an unforgettable experience.

Dive into a school trip, project week or an adventure holiday of very special kind. We look forward to welcome you. 

 

 

LOCATION...

The Steinachhof youth hostel enjoys a sunny position, about 1 km from the centre of Saalbach, in a quiet, but central location, and Hinterglemm is just a 20 minute walk away. Experienced skiers can actually ski various routes down to the building, or to just below. In summer, the Steinachhof makes a great base for wonderful walks and long hikes. Hiking paths to Saalbach and Hinterglemm, and the Schattberg and Bernkogel mountains are very near to the hostel. There are bus stops for the free ski bus in winter and the hikers’ bus in summer just below the hostel.

CAPACITY...

The Steinachhof has approx. 100 beds, over 2 floors. If your group happens to be bigger than this, there is of course the possibility of putting up additional guest beds in the rooms. The Steinachhof is conceived with young people in mind, and so is furnished in a comfortable and functional way. Thanks to its 2 storeys, each with one wing and about 50 beds, it is easily possible to accommodate 2 smaller groups separately.

 

ROOMS...

The rooms predominantly sleep 3-6, are light and furnished in a practical way, and have shower / WC (sometimes separated), and most have a balcony - a beautiful view on the village and the surrounding mountains included. Of course, there are also bunk beds, because they are always more fun. For accompanying adults, or for those travelling individually, there are single and twin rooms available, and if you prefer that boys and girls or different classes are separated, then thanks to the 2 floors, this can be easily arranged.
 

MEALS...

When you are on the go all day and want to make the most of all that is on offer in and around the Steinachhof, you need to eat suitable meals. We therefore provide varied and high quality meals, tailored particularly towards our younger guests. You have the choice of bed & breakfast, half or full board. Younger and older guests alike are spoiled with regional delicacies, child-friendly menus, fresh salads, and desserts. In addition, tea and squash is served with every meal. If requested, packed lunches can be provided to take with you.

 

DINING ROOM...

Our spacious dining room can also be used as a seminar or project room, and thanks to a large, glass sliding door, the dining room can be divided into 2 smaller rooms, each of them light and comfortably furnished, inviting you to stay around after your meal, or use them for various workshops or similar. There are facilities such as a DVD/VHS player, sound system etc. available for use, should you require them.

Parlor...

For accompanying adults, there is a cosy little parlor to relax in or use for work. The practical common room is equipped with fridge, TV, LAN-connection etc. Any other requests? We always have an open ear and constantly try to support you as well as possible with any of your arrangements. If you want to leave the children alone for a bit, group supervisors are welcome to take their meals into the quiet environment of the parlor.

 

RECEPTION...

Our reception is available to help guests with, amongst other things, any information about the resort, places to visit, current events that are taking place, and any general questions about the accommodation. It is important to us that you have everything that you require, and therefore we always have up to date brochures and leaflets about the region available for you to browse. We look forward to helping make your stay as exciting as possible.

DRINKS MACHINES...

So as not to leave our guests high and dry, we have a hot and cold drinks vending machine, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The selection on offer includes Cola, Fanta, Sprite, apple juice and beer as well as coffee, hot chocolate, and tea. If required, we can provide a 5 o’clock tea for your group, or a lovely mulled wine reception for when you return from your day’s skiing. Simply let us know if you want this.


SKI & BOOT ROOM…

We have a heated ski and boot room ensuring that your boots in winter are dry for you to put on, and with plenty of storage space for skis and other equipment. There is also a workbench for servicing or waxing skis. If you require any additional skis or other sports equipment, please ask and we will gladly help you by pointing you in the direction of a suitable sports shop nearby.

INTERNET...

The accommodation is equipped with WLAN, so anyone not wanting to leave their laptop at home can surf the web all they like and send emails  - of course, free of charge. There are also 2 internet stations available to use for no charge, and a large flatscreen TV.


PARKing...

The Steinachhof is easily accessible in both summer and winter. After any snowfall, the drive is cleared by the local snow-clearing service. This is of course no reason for you to dispense with snow chains – it’s better to be on the safe side. There is plenty of parking available. Even 2 buses can be parked in front of the building with no problem. If access is not possible for any reason, then we can organise luggage transport for you.

SUPERMARKETS...

There are supermarkets such as the A&O (300 m) or M-PREIS (400 m) very near to the accommodation, easily accessible on foot and offering plenty of choice for shopping for long nights or for day trips.

You don’t like fixed mealtimes and you want to provide for yourself in the holiday? No big deal: Our two small but beautiful apartments are a remedy. Both equipped with two separate bedrooms, each for two people and a common room with sitting area, TV and kitchenette you have everything you are looking for a pleasant stay in Saalbach Hinterglemm.

SELF CATERING...

If you prefer to take the organisation of meals into your own hands, this is no problem.
