This is a good place to stay. The rooms are generally spacious. The living room is huge and the kitchen space is very large and accommodating. Also met some nice people here. The location is A+++. Highly recommend this place.

This hostel is clean but very pricey and not for backpackers. There is no atmosphere here and the "events" which are organised are not publicised so only afew turn up. The hostel was mainly full of older people with families, so if that's you then it would be a great place to stay

This is a fantastic hostel in a prime location near Sydney Harbour! The view from the rooftop deck is spectacular (and there is Wifi up there as well), it is easy walking distance to the Opera House, Darling Harbour, and other centrally located attractions. In addition, the staff was fantastic when I got ill and needed to visit the hospital -- asking after me and being generally concerned about my well-being. Would recommend!

Very close to the Circular Quay (15 min from airport) considerer some stairs in the way if your are traveling no too light. Very clean. Amazing view to the Opera house from the terrace...can't think in a better one. As every HI is full of stupid school kids/old people. but close to very good discos at the rocks!!

I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling in the Sydney area. Not only is it a modern hostel with a wonderful view, it is built on an archaeology dig site of old world Sydney. Nice facilities, great location and quiet. If you are traveling without much luggage, the Circular Quay train station is much closer than the Wynyard Station, there are just lots of steps to go up.

Great hostel for all ages and type of traveller. Great location with amazing views of Sydney Opera House. Really clean, good staff and excellent facilities. Can't believe it for the price in the centre of Sydney.

Very good hostel in a strategic location. I was staying with really great roommates and the room is CLEAN! The only thing is you need to pay for the WiFi if you want to use it. Other than that, it's pretty a great place to stay. I'd definitely stay with YHA again if I were to visit Sydney.

The personbil was not so knowledgeable about the wi-fi access. It is Aldo strange that the wi-fi is limiten to 30 min/day.

I stayed for one night and found the hostel clean, comfortable and convenient. Security was good, with lockers and a swipe key system to get in at night. The dorm was fairly roomy and bathroom facilities were also fine. I would definitely stay here again.

My girl friends and I arrived at 3 pm, check in was quick and friendly. Enjoyed the spectacular views of the harbour sipping a couple of bottles of champagne before our night out. The beds were comfy, and showers hot, but drainage was slow. The location is superb and we will definitely be staying again.

It is ok.

We booked here purely for the good price &view from the terrace and weren't disappointed. You can see the opera house and harbor bridge in a relaxed setting, it was exactly what we wanted, gorgeous! We had a private room with an en suite bathroom and it was clean & wonderful. The bathroom was huge! The whole building was well-lit with good security measure and clean, open hallways. Our only complaint is that we had a tricky time finding the hostel with all the windy streets.

I arrived in the morning at 9am but couldn't check in before 2pm... Little bit inflexible but my false. The balcony is absolutely perfect, you see the opera and the harbour bridge as well. It was a lil bit expensive but it's a new hostel and a clean one, too. The stuff was pretty friendly and also competent. If the price is not to high for you, go there!
