Stayed for four nights at this hostel, which is located right smack in The Rocks area, and has a very good location in Circular Quay. Facilities-wise, I would say top notch for hostel standard. If you don't really value privacy (I spent the bulk of my days touring outside), go for this hostel, instead of a budget hotel...Rooms are clean and are at very satisfactory conditions, at the price that you are paying..shower facilities are nice and clean ( because it is housed in quite a new building), and the free-access rooftop balcony has panoramic view of the opera house....reception staff were friendly and open to give suggestions..there is also a very communal and convivial spirit in the hostel, with the staff organising Burrito night, rooftop BBQs to bond travellers.....Security-wise, it is along the same road as the five-star Shangri-La hotel, just a few buildings away, so it is quite safe.
This will be my base in Sydney, whenever I am in town...
Just one very very minor grouse: it can be quite hard to locate the hostel for first-timers, as instructions on the hostel website is not too clear. I got lost for 20 minutes trying to figure out the place, but once you find it, you will remember the location....
