Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria and impresses visitors with its stunning alpine setting. Its Old Town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997 and is famous for awe-inspiring architecture and diverse museums.
The most exciting place to look for hostels in Salzburg is Old Town, but you may also want to stay in one of the surrounding districts such as Nonntal or Neustadt. In that case public transportation will get you wherever you would like to go. Salzburg hostels tend to be tidy and clean, with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
While you are there, do not miss the famous Hohensalzburg castle which is up on a hill overlooking the Old Town. Visit the birthplace and residence of world-renown composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and take a stroll around Old Town to explore the famous baroque architecture, including numerous churches. In the outlying districts, you will find several palaces such as Mirabell Palace, Hellbrunn, and Leopoldskron, which are all well worth the trip. If you have extra time, visit the nearby Salzkammergut, an area of lakes east of the city which can be accessed by train. In winter, have fun at the nearby skiing areas in the south.
Salzburg airport is located very close to the city center and can easily be accessed to or from your hostel by bus.

"HI - Salzburg - Jufa Youth & Family Guesthouse Hostel feels like a hotel with its size, electronic keycards, and common areas only in the lobby area. It is kept clean and it is well lit.

It is easy to locate and had a huge sign on the outside of the...
Hostel Salzburg - Eduard Heinrich Haus
"I happened to meet two Chinese girls (I am from Hong Kong myself) staying here. They claimed that other than the location, nothing was good. They said the rooms were smaller and not clean, the toilets, bathrooms and lockers were outside, you needed to pay an extra fee for lockers, and breakfast was not included in the relatively higher price. So, this writer thinks that it depends for what you're looking for--an easy-to-find place to stash...
"Muffin Hostel is a decent place to stay in Salzburg for a single night, but it’s not the best hostel experience we've had. It’s large and has a sterile atmosphere, so it’s not great for connecting with other people, save for the people in your own room. The staff are friendly, pleasant, and helpful, especially when it comes to tourist information, but the place fails in its trappings as just another chain hostel. The Location The hostel...
"Hostel Naturfreundehaus is an absolute gem! With unbeatable views of the entire city, included breakfast and an adorable setting, there is no better place to stay in Salzburg on a budget! Location The hostel is built into a fortress wall that lines the cliff of Mount Monschburg. This wall leads to the fortress on the top of the hill. The hostel is on top of a fully functioning restaurant atop the cliff -- it features an outdoor...
MEININGER Salzburg City Center
"Nice Clean, Modern Hostel - Modern Hostel, many similarities to a hotel. The location is not great, you have to take a tram to get to the hostel, or walk for 20 minutes. The dorms use bunk beds -- if you don't like them, consider somewhere else. The bathrooms are great, even in the dorm rooms. The wifi situation is a pain in this hotel, having to get a new login and password from reception each day -- it can't be that hard to upgrade the...

"The breakfast is as described--not a British "fry up" but a perfectly reasonable continental breakfast. It's not located in Central Salzburg, so it would be the wrong choice if you are looking for this. It's a few minutes train ride and then a short walk uphill to Panoramaweg, which as you might expect does offer a great panorama of the city. It's a good choice if you would like to stay in the countryside but still be close to Salzburg....
"This bed and breakfast was a bit costly for our family of five. We got two rooms here but the first night we arrived we were told that one of our rooms had been rented out accidentally by her son. She did make arrangements for us to stay at another bed and breakfast about ten minutes away. It was actually nicer than hers and had a better breakfast! The next day we all stayed at the Kernstock house and continued there for a total of three more...

Salzburg Travel Tips & Suggestions
I just returned from a long weekend in Salzburg. It was wonderful and I'm certain you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. The weather at the moment is scorching so pack lots of shorts! It was 32 degrees most of the time! The things I enjoyed most were Hangar 7 (a must for car/plane enthusiasts) -- it is filled with some wonderful possessions, all housed in an incredible modern glass dome! There are also a number of breweries that operate tours in the vicinity that are very interesting. From a transport point of view there are excellent trolley bus services in and out of the city. If you fancy a treat why not have a ride on a horse-drawn cart?
Check out the classical concerts that local college students put on in the Gold Room in the main palace. And it's a free concert to boot!
I went to Salzburg on the fly because I couldn't find a room in Munich during Oktoberfest -- what a great escape.
Salzburg is so charming, especially the Mirabell Gardens and Schloss Hellbrun -- places mentioned in "The Sound of Music." I loved Mozart Square and its friendly helpful people and would love to visit it a second time.
Salzburg is an amazing, cultural, historical city set in the most breathtaking scenery with places to visit suiting a broad variety of tastes. Top of my list was the Eagles Nest tour just over the border in Germany. Built for a fiftieth birthday present for one of Austria's least popular statesmen, Adolf Hitler, it's a breathtaking feat of engineering and a truly eerie experience, considering the facilities perched on top of a mountain were enjoyed by some of the Nazi party's worst villains and other nations' key statesmen whilst they were in power. Conquered by the Allied forces in 1945, it survived being demolished as a memory of the Nazis by the appeals of locals and the sheer magnitude of the work that went into building it -- apparently Eisenhower kept an ornamental door knocker as a memento after visiting. Whilst the salt mine tour sounds particularly dull, on the contrary it is a real adventure where you descend by slides into the mines -- much recommended. I thought nightlife was good at the weekend good even if it is a little expensive -- full of beautiful people and some more traditional beer halls -- especially if you fake being reporters for a snowboard magazine.
Salzburg is like a dream world. The tiny compact streets and the endless playing of fantastic music fills you with warmth and pleasure. Mirabels garden is just amazing while the castle takes your breathe away. Salzburg is expensive however. Just to get into the castle via a cart costs around 15 euro each - far too much for us backpackers! The food is good though and the atmosphere friendly. A perfect location for a romantic weekend break.
I really enjoyed Salzburg. Beautiful old buildings and the Sound of Music history, all good fun. It's nice and compact, easily enjoyable on foot. I enjoyed it much more than Vienna. Try out the brewery, top beer and food!
For some reason, Salzburg is quite possibly my favorite place in all of Europe. When I was there last I remember just thinking "Damn this is so....so European!" ha ha. Last time we saw a lot and spend two nights and two full days, but I'm going back this summer and spending three nights and two and a half days. The winding streets, gardens, fortress- it's all so amazing. Definitely worth going to!
Salzburg is a very pretty town, much livelier than Vienna for my money (but less museums). Music on the streets all the time plus outdoor concerts and operas. In the old town things can get expensive thanks to all the tourists, so try the other side of the river. Nightlife here is not really up to par either. And don't forget to see the Ice Caves!
