We are located only ten minutes away from the main train station and three minutes walking distance to the world famous „Sound-Of-Music DoReMi steps“. Our unique free city map will guide you to the main attractions in town. You can also make use of our bike rental service during summer season.

We are prepared to accommodate you all year round. The reception is open from 7am to 12am, but you have access to the building 24/7! Check-In starts at 2pm. We also have a luggage room, which is free to use before your check-in.

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!

    Very nice and helpful staff, comfortable beds... I change my dorm from mixed to female (i just thought i would feel more comfortable- no particular reason) and the lady at the reception handled my request very professionally and with understanding. Also, a small bonus breakfast was a great surprise and very welcomed for us- coffee addicts...

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. However, you need a €5 cash deposit for a towel - this is absolutely crazy, who carries cash anymore? Charge my credit card if I steal a towel like any other accommodation provider would.

    I had a really good stay at the Yoho hostel in Salzburg. The location was great, close to the centre as well ad the train station. There was a free (simple) breakfast and coffee which I really enjoyed! The showers and toilets were very clean. The only issue I had was that there were no plugs near my bed and there were no clothes hangers. However, overal, I had a really nice stay.

    I spent some days at the hostel during the Covid Pandemic, so it was probably not representative of the real atmosphere there. In cany case, the facilities are superb, including laundry, basic breakfast is included, the library is perfect for reading or working, and there are some rooms and an outside court to socialize. Plus, it's within a stone's throw from the Old Town, the town centre and the main station.

    Stayed here for around 2 nights. This is a really nice and clean hostel. great value for the money you are paying and also centrally located. The staff is super nice and friendly, and let you leave you stuff in their locker for a very low deposit. totally loved it, highly recommended. Only one issue: bed was on top birth, and no power outlet there.. that kinda sucked.. everything else: great!

    Unfortunately I did not enjoy my stay at this hostel. I shared my room with one other person: a 60+ man (who snored throughout both nights I stayed there). There seemed to be plenty of rooms/people, so I’m not sure what the rationale of having me share a room with someone clearly not in my age group was. The irony is that the hostel is called the “international youth hostel”.. The rooms themselves were fine, but mine ended up overlooking the front area where people were very loud/talkative.
