The YOHO-Team View House Rules


With our daily screenings of The Sound of Music, you'll get the real Salzburg experience at the Yoho International Youth Hostel! Check in any time for a warm welcome at our 24-hour reception. If you arrive early, we'll happily look after your bag while you wander around town with your free city map. Discover Austrian food at our on-site restaurant, open for breakfast and dinner. Then get into conversation at the bar – with a free welcome shot and not one, but two happy hours each day! For a quieter evening, put your feet up in the lounge with a novel from the book exchange and board games.


We're 10 minutes from Salzburg's main train station and just a few minutes north of the city centre on foot. You'll be able to wander to iconic attractions like the Mirabell Palace and the 'Do-Re-Mi' steps (yes, The Sound of Music again!). It takes under 20 minutes to reach us from the airport – just hop on bus 180 and walk 6 minutes from the stop at Mirabellplatz. We're spread over three floors and have an elevator – good news if you have heavy bags!

Rooms and Dorms

Travelling couples can get a bit of extra privacy in one of our private double or twin rooms, while solo travellers can mingle in our mixed, male-only and female-only dorms. Some have their own en-suite bathrooms, and they all have a table and chairs in the middle. Everyone gets free linen, a locker and a reading light.

Extras and activities

During the summer, hire a bike from us to explore some of Salzburg's amazing cycle routes. There's free Wi-Fi on every floor, so you can update your friends with pictures of your adventures. Other little extras make us feel like a home from home: you can borrow an adapter, a hairdryer, or rent a movie for free. We've got a small communal kitchen and an on-site laundry so you can freshen up those smelly socks!

    I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. All of the facilities were clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful whenever I had questions. The lockers were great because they were really big, as well as secure because it locked with your key card. Another thing that was great about this place was I was able to leave my bag locked downstairs all day after checking out, since I wasn't catching a bus until late that night and didn't want to have it with me all day!

    Have just returned from Salzburg and stayed in this hostel. I really liked it! The rooms and bathe rooms were clean and the bed were comfortable. They had a free breakfast option of toast and tea/coffee which was a nice. The staff seemed knowledgeable and were happy to help. It’s in a great location - about a 10 minute walk from the train station and a 20 minute walk from the old town. They play The Sound of Music each night which was fun to watch. Didn’t use the bar but it seemed nice.

    YOHO is one of the best hostels I have seen in a while. However, I have a slight concern regarding their free B'kfast which has only the toasts and tea/coffee. Unlike many other hostels you won't find fruits and/or juices here. Of course, you can buy all that but only after paying additional money. If this doesn't bother you, YOHO is a perfect choice to stay with.

    Great place , would definitely recommend. The Sound of Music plays every night, even though there is no stove/oven there is still a food prep area, and lots of space to hang out. Most staff really helpful but some seemed sort of annoyed. Overall awesome!

    Hostel was good and clean. Just those few annoying things. No plugs by the bed. I was in a room with 6 beds and 5 plugs which was just annoying you know? Close to the city but the staff could be more helpful. Not very approachable or friendly. Lockers were brilliant though, they locked with your card and were big and spacious!

    Loved that the Sound of Music plays every night at 8! They booked my tour for me and I got 5€ off. Plugs near each bed would be useful, I had to use my battery pack to charge my phone at night so then I didn’t have a backup the next day. Quick walk to the train station.

    I liked that they had a dinner menu that wasn’t too expensive, the goulash was decent. In walking distance of everything. Has information about other sites outside of Salzburg too.

    The location of this place is quite nice, but the hostel is a bit of a joke. First of all, the staff was unfriendly as it can get. I think the only thing that gentleman said to me was the price for the night, not even hello. The information about toilets and showers were given by my roommate who arrived earlier and searched for those herself. Showers and toilets are tiny, the place is generally very old and weary. I would not recommend staying here, you're better off finding something else.
