“Wonderful hostel, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Salzburg is Sound of Music mad and Yoho shows the Sound of Music every night.
The rooms are warm, some of the cleanest I've stayed in, and very sensible having a separate shower and separate toilet to the bedroom.

It is close to the station, but be sure to ask directions if you can't find the main exit, otherwise you will go wrong. But it's relatively straightforward once you're out of the station complex.

Hostel has it's own bar menu, which you can have whilst watching Sound of Music, probably nice to do one evening, but there are so many lovely restaurants 5 minutes walk away it's not really necessary.

The old down is a brisk 10 minute walk, and you can discover a wonderful array of cafes and shops along the way.

The staff on reception could be politer, the bar staff were a lot chattier.
The hostel has a huge range of tours on offer, but do check before you book that they are running e.g. in winter.

Good location and the place is ok but staff was not considerate. We had to figure out ourselves all the essential information concerning the hostel (check out time etc). But yes, clean toilets after all.

I have stayed one night at this cool place, clean and comfortable. I couldn't stay longer because it was fully booked for a second night, but the staff was very nice in trying to find me another place to stay. Close to the train station (really walking distance), easy to find and well located, city centre is nearby. I recommend the place and Salzburg itself! :-)

Me and my friend only spent one night in Salzburg and this hostel was exactly what we needed: clean, very comfy beds, very good breakfast, nice and helpful personnel, relatively cheap. The hostel is located in the proximity of the train station and the city center -- within walking distance. Highly recommended!!!

A great hostel with a fairly young crowd. Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights. We were flexible with our stay but enjoyed Salzburg a lot and were happy with the hostel. The bar is nice, cheap food and a lively atmosphere on the evenings. Free wireless internet was fast enough. The rooms were very clean. Fairly basic dorms but that's to be expected for the price.

I think it would have gotten a better rating if it wasn't for having to pay to rent the towels, I accept a deposit to be necessary but paying for the usage is a little stingy.

P.S I would advise those wanting to do the Sound of Music tour to do it themselves, locate the places and go there yourself via public transport etc - you will save a lot of money as the bus tours cost you around 40euro.

My friend and I have been traveling around Europe for a few months now. We found Yoho to be one the cleanest hostels we have stayed at. They also have a great youth hostel feeling. With people sharing tables at breakfast and meeting in the evening for drinks.
We highly recommend Yoho.
