First of all this hotel has an amazing location. You can take the 555 FREE* inner city bus all over to the quay etcetera just check the hours. Second of all you can have a great room with courtyard or city views anywhere from 100-150$ US based on my experience. This hotel is located near a bottle shop with a fabulous selection of local wine as well as great places to eat and drink. The other reviews based on this hotel being a "hostel" are grossly exaggerated. They offer a range (on purpose) of rooms and stays to accommodate all typed of travelers. This is a given. But as far as location, value, and service?!? This can not be beat in one of the priciest cities to visit. It's a bargain and the help was amazing. Monish and Christophe are both knowledgeable but also affable. Yet will not trick you into any tourist type activities that are just commission. If you ask them anything they will answer. The hotel was wonderful. We came and left Sydney, & returned to the Y during our stay and found it to be perfect. It's in close proximity to the subway which is two blocks away- don't waste time and money on an airport shuttle. The Aussie folks are so helpful just book in, land, ask for the rail, then ask to be dropped at museum station- them will explain when and where (15 minutes or so after a journey) and when you ascend into the beautiful bustling streets of Sydney if you book the Y it's two - yes two short blocks. The commute from the airport should cost 33$ Australian on the subway. The PEOPLE made our visit perfect. I can not speak enough to it. Just open your heart and enjoy this place if you are lucky enough to go here. Also visit the "Canopy" two blocks from the Y Sydney can be spendy but Thursday at "canopy" one Aussie dollar muffins- fresh. Had a couple great breaky and lunch here- try the afongatto - or mocha. Mmmmmm. To all the special staff at the Y and the surrounding area who have probably already just forgotten about these American ladies because this is just the OZ way of being fabulous --- we will never forget you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
