Planning a backpacking trip through Tirol, or simply on the hunt for inexpensive accommodation for your holiday? Maybe you just prefer the more relaxed atmosphere of hostels? The following article contains a list of hostels for your next low-budget holiday in Tirol.
1. Montagu Bed & Beers Hostel, Innsbruck
Six friends, a creative idea and a lot of heart and soul. This is the recipe for success for Montagu, which opened in 2016. A hip pub in the heart of Innsbruck consisting of an upcycling-style café and a bar in a rustic vaulted cellar. After three successful years, the friends decided to expand Montagu by adding a hostel. Each of the three floors has been designed slightly differently. To create additional privacy there are individual bunks which are all equipped with curtains, a locker, electrical outlet and light. There are also multi-bed rooms and a double room. There is no breakfast provided, but there is a communal kitchen including a sunny roof terrace as well as the restaurant on the first floor. The hostel is the ideal place to relax after an active day in the mountains around Innsbruck or to explore the city. Concerts, film presentations and even exhibitions take place regularly in the vaulted cellar.
