This is a pretty standard hostel although they tend to charge you for everything. It is within walking distance of the old town and train station, has a reasonably priced bar with cable TV and was very social and you get a free large locker in the room.
I have a few problems with the place, namely the internet access is really expensive (go to the Internet cafe around the corner for half the cost), the staff were very unhelpful and on occasions rude and there was no kitchen. For such a large hostel you would have thought that they could have a guest kitchen. What makes this worse is the price of the food served at the hostel. The food is not expensive but it is only slightly cheaper than eating out. So as well as the room price you were kind of forced to eat your breakfast and dinner there and along with the internet there are a few 'hidden costs'.
Plus: Nice folks (Didnt meet anyone rude in Austria :) ), clean hostel.
Minus: No guest kitchen. They have dinner too, I didnt hear good opinion about that from the people who I was eating with. Well, I had pasta, and how can anyone screw up pasta anyway.
Will stay there again (unless I find so much free time to research on another hostel)
The Yoho Hostel is an ok place to stay. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are ok. The bathrooms are clean, and there's also a little restaurant and bar.
We found some of the rules of the hostel a bit too strict, like "no food in the rooms", and some of the posters were not to friendly. The Yoho staff were very helpful answering all sorts of questions. They can get you in touch with local companies offering different activities, and also other hostels in the International Youth Hostel chain.
Their slogan is "Easy to find, hard to leave!". I agree with the first part, but I had no trouble leave the hostel. I was sorry to leave Slazburg tough!
The hostel was located within a 10-15 mintue walk from both Mozarts square and the Salzburg Castle. The staff was very helpful and were willing to help you out by making calls to organize tours for you or getting you a taxi. The rooms were extrodinarily clean and the price included an all you can eat breakfast every morning.
5 minute walk from the train station. The Yoho has a friendly bar and clean rooms. one thing that distiguishes from most accomodations in Europe is that it provides an American breakfast. After several months of bread and butter for breakfast-eggs and bacon made me feel like royalty!!
Unique Quality: They play "The Sound of Music" on a continuous loop in a TV room.
Spacious room, close to train station and old town.
Unique Quality: They have restaaurant/bar with Happy Hour (discount price for beers).
i stayed in salzburg for 2 days 1 night, and it's the hostel i spent the night in. the hostel facilities are pretty good, and new. the price is reasonable if you compared with the hostels in western europe. but i don't quite like the shower system, it costs 50cents to take a shower although one shower is included in the price. but 1 shower 1 day is reasonable, would be better if it's not limited. my roommates were pretty friendly. and the view from the room was ok. and would be better if the washroom is larger
The best place to stay in Salzburg is YoHo. It is reasonably cheap compared to the rest of the city and has a bar to start your evening off. People residing here are usually up for a good night out and the staff are very helpful. It is located in the new town, not far from the main railway station.
Unique Quality: Nice, clean dorms, a bar downstairs, clothes washing facilities, decent food, friendly staff, 24 hour entry.
I just got back from the YoHo Hostel and it lived up to my expectattion. It was very close to thwe train station which was nice. EVERYONE spoke English so that was a nice change. I went with5 other people and I have originally only booked for 4 people and when I emailed them for more space they said they had none but when we got there we all were accomodated luckily. We all stayed in a dorm which was clean. We were given a coin for the shower and we only used a locker once to pile all of our stuff in when we left- which was one euro. There was quite a party downstairs and many of my travel mates can agree the bar was the place to be with reasonable drink prices and lots of fellow english speaking travellers. I would recommend YoHo for anyone staying in Salzburg.
The Yoho hostel, in the centre of town is clean, friendly and great place to meet people. Its 14 euros a night for a dorm. It has loads of information on places to visit and transport. It has a fantastic bar , great for meeting people. The Stray travel crowd stay here so it often kicks off. They also do great food for a reasonable price (5.50euro). One of my favourite hostels in Europe.
The local YoHo is very clean, you gets sheets, it is walking distance from the train station and the city centre, and there is no curfew.
Unique Quality: They have rooms of four beds that you can take. There were three of us, we asked for a room, but said if someone else comes they can join us, so we didn't have to pay the full 4 person price.
The woman at the desk was a hottie.
Directions: Not even a mile from the train station

I stayed in the Yoho Hotel a few years back (1999), it's a cheap hostel near the main train stations. Dorms are unisex.
Unique Quality: . It has a kewl bar where traveler gather each night to tell the tale of the road and back home. I think it does charge for showers though :(
Unique Quality: The crossroads for all backpackers to meet in Salzburg!
Clean, neat, inexpensive, and with great food. The dining room/bar is always hopping.
Showings of 'The Sound of Music' allow you to get your fix of kitsch.
Yoho International Youth Hostel
Unique Quality: great social atmosphere, friendly staff, arranges tours and has a nice bar where it is easy to meet people. Also serves a nice dinner and the place is really family like. Also everyday before the Sound of Music Tour starts, they show the film, so you get into the atmosphere of the tour more, and youll easily remember the locations unless you forget about 1 hr on the bus
Directions: coming soon, its about 10 mins by car from the train station and airport. All the taxi drivers know this joint, lots of backpackers go here
