    nice but... security was low..anyone in the street could walk in at night to the hallway where our room was, and the rooftop garden... the people in our room's alarm went off every hour all night!! and it was sad to see many guests "plugged in" to devices and not interacting... so I have mixed feelings about my stay...

    Very comfortable and my room had a fantastic view over the harbour and Opera House. The hostel is in an interesting and historic area. Very cheap and good breakfasts.

    YHA at the Rocks is built on an archaeological site. The architecture of the hostel is worth an interest. It is also near the Opera House which is within walking distance where much activities takes place. There are supermarkets like Woolworths nearby for food and grocery shopping. I recommend staying at YHA at the Rocks.

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    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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