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.

I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. I liked the area it is in and it is really convenient for buses, ferries, and trains, to help you see different areas or go further afield. It had a good mixture of ages, which for someone who is 35, made me feel more confident as sometimsometimes going to hostels now, I feel I'm a bit old to use them, this was not the case for this hostel. it had everything needed, and the dorm was good for what I needed.
