This YHA was really excellent. I stayed here with a group of friends and we had booked 6 bed room for the group which was ideal. The room was on the ground floor and had a shower room right outside which was quite hidden so as we basically had two showers to ourselves,
There are some nice touches in the rooms which show it's such a new hostel like the plug sockets in the lockers etc. We didn't use the kitchen very much but when we did it was clean.
The location is excellent and very central, they don't exaggerate about the steps to Circular Quay though, be warned with bags, there are something like 7 flights of stairs. The hostel is suspended over an archaeological site. All the Europeans will scoff at it as it's only 130 years old. Needless to say, the view from the roof is absolutely stunning.
The only problem we had with the hostel was the air conditioning was a right palaver as you had to have all the windows shut, the key card in the slot and then go and ask at reception but the reception staff seemed to have a lot of trouble setting it and it got seriously hot in there - not great with a hangover!
