We stayed in an 8 bed dorm which was a reasonable size with secure, spacious lockers. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Bar area was great and very social and it's set apart from dorms so doesn't disturb people. We ate there once and daily special was very good and very cheap. Free wifi was rubbish but that may have... More

Clean and comfortable, but otherwise pretty unhappy with this place. They charge for EVERYTHING, including 5€ deposits for towels, keys, etc. They clearly don't trust their customers much with how many deposits they require. Way more expensive hostel than it's worth. We had a very strange experience this morning. Took a lazy morning, got up around 9, and around 9:30... More

Despite what we had been told by friends who had stayed here, we were pleasantly surprised! We stayed here on a topdeck group tour and our room was clean, as were the shared bathrooms. The nightly screening of 'the Sound of Music' was definitely a highlight!

The location of the hostel is NOT close to the main train station at all...and NOT easy to find !! I used 1.5 hrs to get there from the train station!! I have asked many people how to get there but no one could tell!! The staff were not really helpful, they would only answer you: yes, no and ok!!!... More

The location was excellent, very close to the city centre. The reception were very friendly and offered lots of advice plus maps with recommended places to visit/eat which was useful. It wasn't that interesting of a place to stay, very much a practical hostel but the facilities were good and there was a bar which was good to meet fellow... More

Yoho was easy to find from the train station, and was only about a 10 minute walk. I would say the hostel itself wasn't very impressive. It was far too large to have any personality, and was very expensive to boot, but it was a bed in an expensive city, so any other place would have been more expensive. You... More

Yoho is definitely one of the better hostels that I have stayed in. Salzburg is a small city, so the location of the hostel a little bit out of the main tourist areas is not any problem. If anything, being a little bit away from the action makes it quieter. The hostel was super clean - sinks in the rooms... More

Stayed in Salzburg for one night during our holiday from Munich to Italy. Lovely youth hostel, with friendly staff that were more than helpful. Showers were very clean and in excellent condition. Would recommend this hostel for a weekend stay.

This hostel, Yoho International Youth Hostel, was expensive and simply not worth the money. We stayed here one night in a four person room. The hostel was too large, it seemed like a factory out to make money. You paid money for the towels. You got the beddings in the reception and returned them there after your stay. We ended... More
