Conveniently located on The Rocks! Stayed in a family room with a double bed and 2 bunk beds and ensuite. Very clean room and shower/toilet.
The whole building was beautifully designed. It's actually built over an archeological site with the uncovered ruins visible. What an awesome idea!
Very helpful staff. Close to restaurants/pubs/bars/the opera house and harbour bridge.
Kitchen was clean and large...they even have a mini cafe where you can get your espresso fix and buy breakfast if necessary.
TV lounge on rooftop with adjacent open area that has great views!
Stayed 3 nights...felt very safe. No loud noise or disruptions.
Definitely would recommend this place to anyone keen to stay close to the highlights of Sydney. Price is reasonable considering the location...
Any avoid getting off at Circular Quay train station if you've got luggage as it's a pretty steep walk up the hill to the hostel...something we found out the hard way. Apparently Wynyard Station is easier. Wish we had known before making trudging up that hill.
It's a great place to stay in Sydney if you have the time and want to enjoy all at the YHA experience has to offer and the Sydney Harbour YHA is exceptional in that sense. However, if you're only going to head to the room to sleep and spend the whole day sightseeing...it is a little costly.
From our room we managed to get free wifi from the "Sydney City Free Wifi Service" or something like that...it wasn't great but it was free and sufficient for emails and low bandwidth surfing.
