What a location! There really is no better place to stay when in Sydney for the best views of the harbour at an affordable price and its located close to trains, light rail and ferries. The Rocks is such a great area to walk around, especially on the weekends with the markets on. Thanks for a great stay!

Pretty hard to beat the view and the common areas provided by this hostel. Our double room was incredibly quiet and had a view of the Opera House. The staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

The best hostel in Sydney. If you look for a friendly, quiet, well-managed hostel - this is the one. If you look for late loud parties, drugs, chaos - go somewhere else. Nice guys and girls at the reception (they helped me to find my almost lost driver's licence by the way). Lovely Harbour view from the rooftop. Hot cappuccino and cookies in the morning. Clean linen, clean rooms. Relaxed and QUIET atmosphere. Why do you need an expensive hotel when you have a nice place to stay at Rock's YHA?

I love the place, the rooftop, location, breakfast and much more. Only two in-room improvements, please: faster WiFi and fewer mosquitos.

Loved this location, atmosphere, and hospitality however we had trouble with the air-con and a strange zapping noise whenever we placed our key card in the slot. We did advise staff but would not let this put us off a return stay.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as major hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
