    Best hostel in great location. Walking distance to train station, harbour ridge, opera house and circular quay.
    Pauline Y September 2016
    Great location, 5 mins walk to the harbour bridge and maybe 10 to circular quay station. The view was amazing on the roof, people were friendly and just a great atmosphere going. Bathrooms were really clean and good - like a hotel almost. My first time in a hostel - this has really set the bar.

    Fantastic hostel in a fab location. Make sure you check out the roof terrace - 5* star views for hostel prices!

    Location is fantastic. A view of both the opera house and Sydney harbour bridge from the roof terrace... perfect.
    Anita S September 2016
    Great location, central to everything - perfect for the Sydney Running Festival - even a big bathtub to soak in afterwards.

    Jason T September 2016
    Location explains the cost of this YHA. there is no TV or fridge in private rooms as there are in other YHA's. Facilities and amenities are excellent . . . open airy relaxed layout and atmosphere. The archeological dig and artifacts worth a look or free guided tour Mon-Fri only :-)
    Craig R September 2016
    This is the best hostel I stayed forever, the kitchen facilities are all in very good conditions, the in-room bathroom and the room were very clean and the room is big enough. The view at the rooftop is excellent.

    Customer Reviews on

    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 make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

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

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as 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.
