    Other accomodations

    For people with funds contraints, we suggest two youth hostels-like accomodations. These locations have low fares. You can contact directly them and they can be considered as equivalent both for quality and location (Brixen is a small village indeed). Please ask directly them if you need rooms (with or without bath, etc). Under no circumstances we respond on the service they offer.
