Stayed in a 6-bed mixed dorm with private shower. The room and toilet was very clean and spacious, unlike other hostels I have been to. There are limited power sockets in the room (about 3 or 4) but it was not a problem for us and the other guests in our room. Rooms and lockers are accessible by their keycard, which makes it very secure. Lockers are huge enough to store big haversacks and travel luggages. Rooms are pretty soundproof so if there is noise at night from outside, you just have to close the windows. Rooms are also equipped with heaters. The shower is great, both warm and cold. :)
Reception is 24h and the front hostel doors are locked after a certain time at night for added security. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful with making your stay a pleasant one in Salzburg. There are also many maps and activity brochures available in the hostel so you can be well-informed about what to do in the area.
The hostel screens Sound of Music everyday at 7pm in a common room, and it was a nice experience watching it with other guests. Apart from this, the hostel also allows you to rent DVDs and have book exchanges, which is wonderful because I don't see this in the other hostels I have stayed in before. There are many communal rooms - specifically a reading room and a common area where you can hang out with friends and such. The hostel also serves meals but we did not manage to try them.
Overall a great hostel to stay in when in Salzburg. In fact the best hostel I have stayed in out of the many I have been to within my 4 month trip around Europe. Location is fantastic, just 5-10 minutes walk from main sites like the central station, Mirabell Gardens, and so on. Only thing I did not like was though the Wifi was available throughout the hostel, it can be spotty at times but this is not a major problem at all. Highly recommend Yoho!!
