Temporary or short-term accommodation

Students: If you don't find suitable accommodation by means of the above mentioned services, you can of course come to Salzburg and stay in a youth hostel for the first few days. You are likely to find a room in a shared appartment on the spot upon arrival. Although it might seem to be a risky method of searching for accommodation, most students finally succeed in finding a suitable place.

If you need temporary housing prior to moving into your confimed accommodation, the local youth hostels are an inexpensive alternative to hotels.
