Salzburg Hostel

Hostel Salzburg

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Peacefully located at the edge of the Salzach woods, a 25-minute walk from Salzburg's Old Town, the hostel provides easy access to the city's sights.

Hostel Salzburg has rooms of 1-4 beds, most with private bathrooms. Facilities include TV room, cafeteria, a big garden area, and a kitchen serving dinners, lunches and lunch packs. We also have WLAN and internet access in our friendly cafeteria, a TV lounge, table tennis, outdoor chess, volleyball, a large terrace with a barbecue, a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

Salzburg is a very photogenic city, almost too perfect to be true! Visiting the Mozart houses, the Residenz, and a tour of the Lake Region and hills of Salzburg, filling them with The Sound of Music are a must.

I miss a rating about accessibility of the hostel. Sometimes you have to make a great roundabout way without indications at all. After a concert we walked back to the hostell along the river Salzach. Arriving at the cable-bridge we lost our way in the dark wood and arrived at the wrong side near to the hostell. We had to make a big roundabout against the clock to find and arrive at the hostell. There are no indicators at all from the side of the river.

The location is amidst greenery, great for morning walks. Not very far from the bus stop and the city has really great bus system. All attractions are within 10 mins of a bus ride free with the Salzburg card. Breakfast is superb . Compared to regular hotel prices, room rent is very affordable for the backpackker.
