This hostel is more like a hybrid between a hostel and hotel. It is central to everything, right across from the bridge steps and less than 10 minutes to Circular Quay. The rooftop view is amazing. It's perfect for individuals of all ages and for all types of travelers - solo or groups. The hotel is very clean and safe,... More

Staying at Sydney YHA was my third experience of a Sydney Hostel and this was by far the best! It is well placed in the centre of Sydney, a short walk (admittedly down a lot of steps) to all the main sights, bars and restaurants. The roof terrace provides a breathtaking view of the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and... More

This is my second time at YHA, it is a great place to stay very close to circular quay (10min or less by walking) with awesome views from the rooftop which is at the 3rd floor!! It is fairly clean and the best is that it is really quiet at night There are great activities you can join which are... More

The best thing about the hostel is the location. Is really close to the center of the city and you can walk to almost all of the principal places. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have guests all ages: since teens to elderly. Definitely, I would stay there again.

The hostel is located in a very charming area (The Rocks). A few minutes walking to the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, close to good restaurants and bars. I stayed in a four beds room, it was spacious and clean.

Best Hostel ever!!! What an awesome location to choose for your visit when coming to Sydney. With excellent views of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera from the rooftop, it is certainly one of the best views at a good price. Also excellent quality and clean rooms. Walking distance from the train and bus stops - only 5 min. to... More

No ordinary hostel, this is an excellent option for those who normally do budget hotels. The location is simply perfect for Sydney sightseeing. The staff were all helpful and the coffee made at reception was very good. Pricey for a hostel, but in this location it's an absolute bargain.

I stayed in a private room with a view of the harbour. It was so affordable and the building is fascinating as it sits on top of an historical dig. A great way to explore the Rocks and the Harbour. The rooms are basic but it was perfect for my stay. I was attending a conference at the Sydney Opera... More

Excellent location. Situated just two minutes walk from the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Moreover, it is very close to the main street of Sydney ( George Street ). It is possible to walk to the Darling Harbour ( about 20 minutes ). Hostel staff is very helpful and professional. I recommend!
