Hostelworld says

Nomads Sydney is a good choice for those flying in to Sydney as it's just a short walk from the train going to and from the airport. It's also centrally located very near Darling Harbour and the Harbour Bridge. Many Hostelworld guests tell us they'd stay here again, based on the highly-praised travel info desk and the large rooms which feature comfy beds and spacious under-bed lockers. We like that this hostel has free events every day, such as "beach trips, yoga, running [and] VIP nights at local bars", according to our reviewers.

Love it here! By far the best hostel I've stayed at in Sydney. I complained about someone in my dorm so Josh at Reception was super helpful and gave me a free upgrade for the rest of my stay. All the staff are really lovely and the daily social events make it really easy to meet people and have fun. I'll definitely be coming back here again!

I really enjoyed my stay! The location is perfect, the staff is really nice and friendly. You also have the possibility to book some activities for your East Coast trip at one of the front desk which I thought was really nice and one of the guys who works there was really nice. The only thing is that a lot of people are staying there for a while and are settled in so if you’re only there for a couple of days it can be harder to introduce yourself but I still managed to meet some nice people!

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay! We had a faulty TV in our room and reception was so helpful, we had our room upgraded to an ensuite room. It was clean & spacious. It can get noisy at night due to the bar next door, but nothing some earplugs couldn’t fix. Would definitely recommend staying here :)

Nomads Sydney says

We offer a bunch of extras and unique features here that really set us apart from other hostels. Our own amazing bar, Scary Canary, is open 'til late with different fresh and fun activities nightly. The free weekly activities include a free guided tour over Sydney Harbour Bridge and we've got a free beach BBQ which is held on the popular Coogee Beach. Upon check-in we provide a special Base guide to Sydney city, with special offers like Sydney Tower discounts, bridge climbing, aquarium and local food and drink specials, plus an all-you-need-to-know map of Sydney. Plus our guest service desk can provide you with tax back, bank account set-up and SIM card activations and we sell cell phones and calling cards. We offer disabled-friendly rooms and a disabled toilet for our special guest needs. Only a few minutes away we have Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and Darling Harbour, where you can see a real koala and feed a kangaroo at Featherdale Zoo, but personally I tell people they have to go to Bondi. If you're up for surfing or swimming, Bondi Beach is place to go!! Only minutes walk away is the bus stop to get on to catch some serious waves.
