Hostelworld says

Sydney Harbour YHA was named the best in Australia and Oceania at the 2010 Hoscars and it’s not hard to see why — this clean, modern hostel has a stunning view over Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House. Hostelworld reviewers say they highly recommend this hostel to other travellers, citing the ‘large, clean ensuite rooms’ and ‘clean safe, family atmosphere’. We like ‘the Big Dig’—archaeological digs in the ground floor which can be viewed from the walkways on all levels of the hostel.

Great location with views of the opera house from the roof terrace. Did find the atmosphere quite anti-social considering it’s such a big hostel
