Yoho, a 170-bed Schallmoos hostel, is more formally known as International Youth Hotel Salzburg. It's one of "Europe's Famous Hostels," which means that the following can be expected: 1) it's clean and up-to-date 2) it's atmospheric, fun and filled with party-hungry travelers and 3) there's a lot of beer.
Bottom line, if you're younger than 25 years old and up for a good time in Salzburg, then this is where you belong.
Yoho's basic rooms are just for sleeping and storing your stuff, as they have little else than wood floors, flat hospital-style bedding and small windows. All rooms share toilets in the hallway, though some have a private shower (€3 extra). Dorm rooms—including some female-only dorms—are the cheapest option.
The rates may seem high for such basic rooms, but you're paying for the entire experience. Other hotels don't offer special discount excursions, tell you where to party or provide a place to drink like an animal until the wee hours.
The bright, freshly-painted lobby boasts fun a staff and a bar with walls covered in dollar bills, "crazy" Salzburg photos and party flyers. There's also a guest kitchen and fridge, TV lounge, vending machines, laundry and an Internet station. The 24-hour reception is a huge plus, given all the cheap places in town where you must let yourself into a dark and spooky building in the middle of the night.
Breakfast is available for an extra charge.

About the Yoho International Youth Hostel Salzburg neighborhood
The bulk of Salburg's Cheapo-friendly properties lie in Schallmoos, an expansive neighborhood that stretches north from Franz-Josef-Strasse and east from the train tracks. Schallmoos is a residential area, with stately townhouses in the south fading into low buildings and gas stations closer to the Autobahn. Swanky southern Schallmoos is within walking distance of all things Altstadt, while many hotels in northern Schallmoos offer free parking.
