    My friend and I stayed at this hostel while spending a few days touring Sydney. Although we didn't use the kitchen, we found the rest of the facilities to be very clean. The location is prime, just a few minutes walk from the Harbour Bridge. Although it's more pricey than some of the other hostels in the city, the location and the clean facilities are well worth it!

    Overall really great hostel. Clean, rooms are a good size, big lockers with outlets inside, water pressure in bathrooms is great. The atmosphere isn’t very social and despite an amazing rooftop view there was almost never anyone up there. Staff was helpful-i saw them a lot because for some reason my key card got deactivated almost everyday.

    Near to the harbour bridge. But back to YHA at night is a bit scary 🙈 (it’s not a busy area)

    YHA hostels, in general are consistantly a better value. If you stick to this company, your overall experience will be better! Sydney Harbour YHA had an excellent location and a magnificent rooftop view! Aside from a so so matress I was well pleased. Breakfast? Pancakes on the Rock's, nearby, offers a plate of bacon,egg and hash for $11 that was exceptional .

    Had to carry my suitcase down a flight of stairs. They had lifts but not for the level which my room was allocated. Bathrooms could have been more clean. I expected more considering I chose this place based on a high rating and price. The Ayer rock decor on level 1 looks tacky. The positives however include decent location, good view of the harbour bridge and storage room available for post-check-out. Overall, if you’re after a place to stay for the night, this place will do the trick!
