                My Stays at the YHA (multiple stays actually) were all very enjoyable, the location is excellent for trains and buses.

                Real nice hostel. Very good location, very close to sydney central. Nice rooms, clean. In house cinema with good movies. Very big kitchen with lots of fridges. Nice lounge area. Free shuttle bus in the neighbourhood. Little lights on every bed, so you don't wake up everyone when you come in to a dark room.

                It was clean and quiet. The location was very good, close to China town and Central station. Kitchen was very clean, and never crowded.

                Swimming pool was too small. Internet was expensive - AUD 4 per hour. Laundry was expensive - washing, drying and washing powder cost AUD 8 in total.

                YHA Staff are extremely good at making a weary traveler feel welcome! The rooms are clean, the water pressure in the showers strong, the lounge areas & common rooms are spacious & the daily meal 'deals' on offer are great value for money. I felt safe staying there & I even made some friends & had a 'sing-a-long' in the dinning area! I love how it's got the Scuba Bar just down the road & it's right in the heart of the Sydney CBD with walking distance to loads of popular attractions. I'll certainly be back again & again!

                The pool water was cooler than expected even tho it stated it was 'heated' & the sauna wasn't on when I went to use it (evening). The movie was cancelled in the morning because there weren't enough people to watch it. I was accidentally put into a 'boy' room, given the wrong room number so had to go to reception 3 times to get it 'right'. Some traveler 'stole' my thermal food bag from the pigeon hole in the kitchen.

                Central location for entertainment center and Darling Harbour. Good size room

                Twin room had a double bed and a single bed stored under double bed (although single bed was still comfortable and was a normal bed height, so not just pull out camp stretcher type bed)

              • Single
                5.8

                Meeting other travellers. Being able to attend a conference at the yha. Closeness to the city centre and train

                Should be a free light breakfast, cafe staff not very friendly.too expensive for a hostel. Showers dirty some of the time

              • Single
                7.0

                The rooms were decent, good location, will surely stay at yha again

                Little expensive compared to other hostels around. I didnt like the cafe attached to the hostel. Staff at the cafe was rude, not helping at all and food not that great..!

                Location, Price, Simplicty

                Can take awhile to check in, can be funny with guests, if they don't have a room key.

              • Single
                4.6

                The only good thing about it is that it is handy to Central station.

                My room although it had private facilities had no TV, no tea-making facilities and no frige - all of which could have been obtained at other hotels at a similar price.

                Well located opposite the central railway station and good access for Sydney itself. Easy walk to the bridge and opera house. Decent budget restaurant serving better than average food which was well presented.

                Nice Hostel, clean, full of comfort and 2 minutes walk to central station, u can reach all places by walk,bus or train easly. Nice staff, nice structure the best one in Sydney. Free cinema inside the hostel every night, pool and sauna, clean bath ... perfect.

                Little bit expensive for a Hostel, no free internet connection.

                Location was good, opposite the train station and nearby paddy market and Chinatown.

                Pricing could have been lower considering the hotel although clean was basic.

                Only fault no power sockets next to bed maybe there shud be on next to the personal light for each bed as using laptops and smart phones is difficult when people are resting

                The hostel was near the central train station (like 2 minutes by foot).In general the hostel is clean.The mattress are very use, so it make them a little bit not comfortable. They have one of the best backpackers kitchen that i've seen.

                The price of the room. Why can they be cheaper???

                Enthusiastic staff, clean room, location: right in the city center.

                The rooms are very basic. It is a lot of money for the value one gets. The parking garage is ridiculously narrow. You need to be a car acrobat to drive in, park and drive out again.
