Comfortable beds, nice bathroom, TV reception not the best, but really who cares. The view of the harbour from the terrace balcony is... More

I stayed in a 4 share room here during the Sydney Writers' Festival held at Walsh Bay for the location (15 minute walk away). One of the big plusses was meeting room mates, one of which was also here for the festival, what luck, what fun! The rooms are quiet, with their own ensuite, and two bunk beds. Each bed... More

So cheap! Budget accomodation at a fraction of the price of other hotels in the area. No you won't get bells and whistles but you'll get a clean tidy room and a simple ensuite if you book a private room. Would stay again and would recommend.

On our first trip to Sydney wie walked past this YHA. We were surprised by the excellent location (near Harbour Bridge, in The Rocks) and the good outer appearance, so we decided to stay here on our next visit. We stayed in a double room with bathroom. The room was basic but clean and had a view of the opera... More

I traveled to Sydney on my own in 2011 and stayed for about a week. I stayed at the YHA for most of the time. It is a great community of travelers with a nice common space, with internet access. I stayed in a single room which was a little more expensive but it was worth it. Sometimes I don't... More

I was travelling alone and had booked a room here in advance. Smart, clean and very easy to find after getting the train from the airport. The staff were very friendly and I had everything I needed in my room including tea and coffee facilities. Fantastic view of Sydney Opera House from the roof terrace!

Stayed at Sydney Harbour YHA in a 4-bed mixed dorm. The room was huge, beds were clean and comfortable and each guest has a large luggage locker with a power socket inside. We had an en suite bathroom but no towels were provided so remember to bring your own! The reception is on the first floor along with the kitchen... More
