We have planned to visit slazburgm, austria. As a cost factor we have decided to stay in the youth hostels there. But little confused on whether there is any age limit for those places.

Our ages are 24, 27 and 32

Please help us.

Now lm NOT speaking from experience BUT when l stayed in hostels in Australia there were people from all age groups - the over 60s to the 18-20 year olds.

I dont think you will have any problems as regards age - lm 32 (only for another week mind you!) btw!

As far as I'm aware the youth hostels with upper age limits are in the Bavaria region of Germany (something like 26) - I think Austria is ok for that.

Usually it tells you (actually it should always tell you) on the page you book the hostel through on hostelworld or wherever. I haven't booked a hostel in Austria where there was an age limit as far as I'm aware, so I don't think you should have many problems. Even when there is an age limit or similar restriction it's often ignored, how many of us have booked a "male dorm" or a "female dorm" and arrived to find it was actually mixed? Practicalities often trump rules in reality.

It's best to check with the hostel in question. I stayed in one in Antwerp a few years back and they had no problem accepting me, and while I was there I saw people who were older than me also staying at the hostel. So I guess age shouldn't be that much of a problem, but no harm checking with the owners.
