I've stayed many times at this property. It's reasonably new, built on an ancient site called "The Rocks". The rooms are situated around the perimeter, and from the corridor-the middle part- you can see the excavated area.
The rooms are airy, light and clean; also very spacious. I've stayed in dorms, private room and the family room. Each locker has its own power point.
Their balcony is awesome with a clear view of the Sydney Opera House , the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay, and the city(because of its close proximity).
One doesn't need to walk into the CBD area, as there are lots of shops, galleries etc. in The Rocks' area-walking 5 min from the Hostel. There are stairs that lead you up on the actual bridge, and you can walk over it to the other side of Sydney-it's a lovely walk and it offers spectacular views of the harbour. Half way is a pylon that has an interesting 'museum' on how the bridge was built, and more spectacular 360 degrees views( there is a small entrance fee).
