Frau Ainberger is famous locally for her delicious food and warm welcome. This simple but recently renovated youth hostel offers a good standard of accommodation for school ski trip groups looking for sole occupancy on a budget. Fifty-one beds are divided over two floors, each with shared shower and toilet facilities. The Hausbergerhof is a five-minute drive from the village of Brixlegg and 20 minutes away from Alpbach, where you will meet your ski instructors. Enjoy cosy evenings in the Stüberl, torchlit walks or bumboarding directly outside your house. Alternatively, bowling, swimming and night skiing are a short coach ride away.
