I stayed here for a few nights when I first arrived in Sydney. Sydney Harbour YHA is the best hostel I've ever been to. It's very clean, the room is more like a hotel room, with bathroom, good lockers, confortable beds.

We spent NYE in Sydney and stayed at this pleasant YHA. The hostel was very clean and well appointed. The kitchens had plenty of space and the views from the sun terrace were amazing looking straight at the opera house and harbour. The double room we stayed in was clean and comfortable and actually very good value for money saying... More

The YHA has an great location in Sydney. With a rooftop overlooking the Opera House and the harbour bridge. Amazing. The hostel is new and has great and good rooms. The rooms are quite expensive, you're paying for the location. I highly recommend this hostel.

This was one of the best hostels we've stayed in!! The views were amazing and the roof terrace was a major bonus, we could even see the opera house from our room. We had a double room which was lovely and done to a high standard and we had tea and coffee refilled everyday, the radio was a nice touch... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the YHA Hostel in Sydney in december 2014. We had a private room with our own bathroom (non shared). The room was simple and poor but it has everything you need. There is no romance in the room but it has all the necessities. The YHA Hostel is perfectly located in the beautiful part... More

Designed just to be a hostel and you can tell. On on rocks (quite litterly ) with a dig going on the ground floor with ruins. Nice kitchen and rooms are as expected. To get air con enabled you need to ask reception and it is turned off daily.

I love this hostel. Once I had found it. (Once you know it's easy to find) it was one of the best hostel I stayed in while I was in Australia. It was very modern and so clean. The kitchen was great and always clean. It is 5 minutes walk to the opera house and really close to the main... More

I have never in life stayed at a hostel, but after visiting the Sydney Harbor YHA, I would not hesitate to stay at one again if they are all like this! The Sydney Harbor YHA is located on a quiet street approximately five minutes by foot from the Sydney Harbor and the famed Opera House. On the lower floor of... More

You can't go wrong with a brand such as YHA but this was by far my favourite during a resent trip to Australia ( Airlie Beach and Brisbane others I stayed at) there are loads of reasons as to why it is a great place to stay. The location of this hostel is fantastic, slap bang in the rocks (... More
