    Wow wow wow!! Incredible hostel with the best rooftop in Sydney. Super friendly staff, super clean rooms and beautiful ensuite bathrooms. Barangaroo, Hyde Park, circular quay, wynyard all less than a 10min walk. This would honestly have to be one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in anywhere in the world. Will be back!

    A great place to stay for a visit to Sydney. Being able to have cereal and toast on the top terrace with views over the harbour and Opera House for $4.50 is priceless!

    The room was filthy, there was another woman staying in the 4 share that had her underwear and laundry strung up around the room. The room looked like it hadn’t been cleaned for months and all 4 lockers were occupied with her stuff. The linen looked really old and not very clean, the kitchen was also pretty dubious. The lady at reception didn’t seem to know what she was doing and when I addressed that I wanted to cancel my booking over 24 hours in advance, they didn’t provide me with a refund.

    Discriminated against for not being vaccinated therefore not allowed to stay. I’ll admit I didn’t see anything about this when I made my booking. Left on the street at 11pm in Sydney with no accommodation. The guy behind the desk couldn’t care less and was very rude. A clear breach of privacy to ask for my medical exemption also. A shame that YHA supports segregation. Just following orders doesn’t cut it. Wake up to yourself and have a look at what’s really going on. This won’t be forgotten.
