    • I met a lot of great travelers from different countries and that was made my trip more awesome. The room was clean, the staff was definetely helpful and the rooftop was the best thing I'd like to visit every morning before starting my day.

    • Sydney Harbour Youth Hostel is an excellent facility. The location is unbeatable, the atmosphere friendly, the rooms clean and well maintained. We enjoyed watching and photographing a dramatic sunrise over the Opera House this morning before breakfast on the rooftop followed by a day exploring The Rocks. I highly recommend this hostel for families with teenagers. A very successful holiday.
