Are you planning a backpacking trip through Tirol, or 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. Mellow Mountain Hostel Ehrwald – sleep.explore.repeat

Formerly a classic Tirolean hotel in Ehrwald, the Mellow Mountain Hostel is now a modern and easy-going base for all those who want to explore the Zugspitze region. The hostel is especially ideal for active holidaymakers on a weekend or longer break. Hikes, bike tours and visits to bathing lakes can be started directly from the front door and the bus stop to the nearest ski area is only a hop, skip and a jump away. Owner Sebastian’s vision was to create a home from home for all nature and sports lovers who don’t feel the need to spend their vacation in a hotel. He and his team strive to offer holidays the way they like them themselves: authentic and relaxed. Come and see for yourself whether they have managed to achieve their aim!
