When we booked online, we had to book a 4-person dorm (for 2 people) since there weren't any private rooms available, but when we arrived, they instantly upgraded us to a private double room. The private room is in a small offshoot of the hostel, which kept it very private and quiet (plus we had our own balcony). For the price, it was really great value. I liked that they showed Sound of Music every night (though I'm sure it sucks for the employees) and when we couldn't decide what to eat for dinner, Yoho Hostel offered filling meals at decent prices. I love how there's unlimited salad included with the meals. I like veggies and it's hard to find meals with a lot of veggies in it while in Austria. The location is decent. Within walking distance of the train station & relatively easy to find with the directions they give you supplemented by the directions we got from the train station information desk. It's also within walking distance of pretty much everywhere in Salzburg (it's not a huge city). We were very pleased with our experience. I can see why it's recommended as a "Europe's Famous Hostel".
