    Location and views from the terrace Quiet on a night allowing easy sleep Staff were very friendly and assisted when I had a question regarding travel

    I had booked my room in advance but was allocated a 4 bed dorm already occupied. This involved some waiting and faffing around when I was quite tired. Also, the electronic key then wouldn't work and involved more to and from the front desk. A bit annoying when you're feeling tired and cranky after your flight and walk up from Circular Quay dragging heavy luggage, but the staff were very pleasant and helpful and nobody died. :-) Thanks

    The location of Sidney Harbour YHA at The Rocks is fantastic! I actually had a view of the Sidney Opera House from my room. The roof top terrace had possibly the best view one could find in the Circular Quay area. The rooms were clean, modern, had a good bed and excellent bathroom. It is a short walk to Circular Quay and all its attractions. Highly recommended!

    Towels didn't dry well and there was not a new one for each day. Minor problem and the only thing I didn't like.

    The rooms were big and clean, it's a newish building so was modern and clean. You can make your own food in the kitchens which were spotless too, this saved us lots of money. The Rocks is a great place to stay as it's near everything, you can see the Opera House from the roof. It was better than most of the hotels we have ever stayed in.

    There was nothing to dislike

    Loved the location, facilities (kitchen, fridge, cooking facilities for everyone), and how it didn't feel like a youth hostel. It was extremely easy to find things in and around the hostel.

    No TV in room, had to go to level 3 to the TV room so it was a bit too quiet in the room after getting in from a busy day. I can understand a TV not being in a room where you have a few backpackers but for couples and families, it's a bit inconvenient having to go upstairs to watch TV and wind down. The metal bed was very loud when trying to sleep. The shower and sink leaked all over the floor after getting a shower/wash.

    I love how close it is to everything in Sydney just a short walk to Circular quey ferries, trains and buses. You can go anywhere from this location. Clean and comfortable budget accommodation.

    I miss having a TV in my room,

    The location was perfect, the views from the rooftop are stuning (you can see the opera and harbour bridge from there). Overall it is a good value in the city as Sydney is overpriced

    The kettle was dirty and the customer service is pretty bad. Staff seem tired and very unpleasant (i guess the working conditions are not the best)

    Location, and staff

    Still the kitchen could have been cleaner, but hey it's the guests, some people are not as clean as I would like them to be.

    Cool building built above remains of some of Australia's first settlements. Great view of the Harbour from the roof. Clean facilities. Location.

    A large group of school children running around making noise. I understand YHA's are open to all, but this ruined the mood. Expensive WiFi, especially for the price of the hostel.

    Excellent location and convenience for Hostel.

    The staff, for having many guests do not have a very close relationship with you.

    Loved nearly every bit of my stay. Friendly staff, facilities so very clean & location superb. Views of Opera House & Harbour Bridge .... priceless. Close to everything :-)

    If I was to pick something .... and this is really hard, however mattresses were very, very firm. A little more comfort in the mattresses would have made the stay 100% rather than 99% ;-)
