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.

"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...

HI - Salzburg - Eduard Heinrich Haus Hostel
"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...

HI - Salzburg - Haunspergstrasse Hostel
"This youth hostel was pretty good. We may have been upgraded from a twin to a triple, so the room seemed nice, quiet, clean and big for just two of us, given it even had a table and chairs and lockers within the room. Breakfast was also decent, and included in the price, which is always a good thing. The main thing I didn't like was that check-out time was 9 a.m., so, leaving Salzburg at 1 in the afternoon meant that we had to leave our...

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!
