I loved Sydney and staying in the Rocks helped us save time since we were in the heart of the tourist area. Easy access to circular quay, easy to get to the airport, the train, the ferry, restaurants, art galleries, the Opera House. The location of this YHA can't be beat if you are visiting Sydney, just don't expect anything other than a basic room that might be HOT. The showers & beds are good.
Climb one of the world's most famous bridges - the Sydney Harbour Bridge! Experience the amazing 360 degree views of our Harbour City.
