Great location with good facilities!
Stayed at Sydney Harbour YHA from 6th sept 2016 - 10th sept 2016. Great location! it near to all the different public transports so getting around won't be a problem. It is also only a 10min walk away to Sydney Harbour! The rooftop terrence let you have a great view of sydney harbour, as well as the opera house and sydney bridge! The place is clean and the staffs are friendly and always willing to help. I was checked in by a staff named Jennifer, who was super friendly and helpful in giving advises like where to go to take great photos and for coffee! She was always having a smile on her face when approached with enquiry. Would definitely go back again in future and highly recommend this place to stay for travellers!

Pleasant experience
Location is awesome, within the CBD area, only a walking distance from the hostel to those attractions. Have to take steps from both Circular Quay station and Wynyard station to the hostel, suggesting people who are with big luggage to take a cab to the hostel. Room is big and clean, staff are nice, bed is comfort, kitchen is well-equipped. Nothing to complain. Will stay again if I go to Sydney again.

Great Location
You can see Sydney Harbour, The Harbour Bridge and the Opera House from the rooftop terrace. That is good enough reason to stay here. My room was fine. Locker is great. They even have power sockets in the lockers so that you can charge your gadgets and lock them in the lockers. Very thoughful. Bedside power sockets are also provided. Kitchen is fully equipped, you just need to go to the supermarket to buy stuffs and cook. Overall a good stay and I would definitely stay here again if I return to Sydney

Great
One of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. Spacious and very clean. No free wifi in the rooms is a bit silly considering what you are paying but the location is perfect. It's my first time in Sydney and it was great to stay right near Circular Quay. There are all types of travelers, older, people in their twenties and teens. It is pretty big, so not much of a cozy feel but the rooftop is a good hangout spot.
