How to arrive

From the train station:

At the main exit of the train station go out left - after a couple of hundred meters you will come to a big crossing. On the right-hand side there is a gas station, on the left there is a train underpass.

Go through the train underpass (left side, Gabelsbergerstrasse) and at the 2nd big crossing turn right. The 4th house on the right side is the YOHO (Paracelusstrasse 9) - that's it!
(about 10 min walk)

From airport:
Take bus # 2 from airport to the train station. The bus takes about 20 minutes and costs €2.10. Then follow instructions given above.
Or: a couple more stops after the train station there will be a stop called 'Stelzhammerstrasse'. Get of, turn right, first crossing left 'Lasserstrasse' and at the next crossing just cross the road. This takes about the same time as to walk from the train station...

By car:
Take the highway exit Salzburg Nord. Then take the B150 (Salzburgerstrasse). After 4.5 mk always continuing this street you turn right at Sterneckstrasse/B1. After 2.9 km you turn left into the Paracelsusstrasse. The 4th house on the right hand side is YOHO Int.

Very important!

It was good. Pleasantly nice. The only two problems I encountered was that there were two other backpackers staying in my room and they went to bed at 8pm. It was hard to come in and move around in my room to get ready for bed,etc without wanting to disturb them since the room was so incredibly small. I also would have liked to see an additional bathroom on our floor. It always seemed to be occupied. Last, but not least, the free wifi did not extend to my room on our floor (the 3rd). My friend's room was by the elevator and he got wifi, but I was further down the hall and got zero wifi. I did enjoy the location of the hostel, the fact that the staff was great, there was a quiet room (library area), a kitchen, and a laundry room (I would highly suggest updating the laundry facility!!!).

I liked the hostel and its atmosphere, the facilities were clean and comfortable. However we booked to come back while traveling and they had scribbled our booking out and given it to someone else so we nearly didnt get a room and it delayed the whole days for us ( we had booked to go back for my birthday while trave@gmail.comling) as we had to wait to book in. it was very disorganised.

Yoho Salzburg is surprisingly good for the value and experience in limited budget! I was absolutely satisfy, and might return again for sure! The staffs are friendly, thoughtful, very-well spoken in English and German and maybe other languages too, and rich of information in which they can recommend you to sights around the city. The location is not too far from the city which is just about 15 minutes walks to the centre of the town, 10-15 minutes walk from Main Train Station and 1 minute walk to the local bus stop, the room was 80% tidy and clean and equipped with full features of security you would expect to see in Qualiied Youth Hostel, including keycard lockers! The breakfast was quite cheap which allows you to eat as much as you wish for only €3,- I would truly recommend this place for all travellers who wanted to visit Salzburg and accommodate in higher standard of qualitied youth hostel within the budget and reasonable price! Have fun in Salzburg!

This was the nicest Hostel I have ever stayed in! It was so clean and tidy, and the staff were lovely. It was a little quiet but thats not always a bad thing as there was no problems with getting a great night sleep! The breakfast was convenient, although a little pricey maybe, but all the same it was an awesome stay. Very easy to get to and from the train station also!
