Stay at a&o youth hostels without a membership: the flexible way to discover Salzburg

Unlike German Youth Hostel Association (DJH) hostels, you don’t need to be a member to stay at our a&o youth hostels. There are no additional costs beyond those for accommodation and any extra services you might use such as one of our activity programmes. Families are also very welcome in a&o youth hostels: extra-large family rooms offer the comfort you need to get a proper rest at night to wake up fighting fit for next-day’s activities. With our a&o youth hostel in Salzburg, you’ll enjoy a central location at an affordable price – perfect to explore Salzburg in a relaxed and easy-going way. Explore this Austrian city of culture and visit Hellbrunn Palace, which is well known for its water games. Or see Mozart’s birthplace, Salzburg Cathedral and Cathedral Square, or Hohensalzburg Fortress. The Getreidegasse shopping street, where you can wander around and marvel at the Austrian craftsmanship, is especially charming. Salzburg is always worth a trip – of course, with accommodation at a&o Salzburg Hauptbahnhof!
