Clean room , hotel location the best .
The YHA is in a great place easy walking distance to central train station the hop on hop off bus China town and darling harbour. I just wish they had family rooms. I paid the extra for breakfast thinking on holidays One less meal worry about I will not do that again the cafe next to the YHA the staff could not cook toast I got warm bread I ended up asking them take it back make it brown. You had get your own tea or coffee and cereal I could have done that in the kitchen at the YHA the place they had set up to help yourself was they storage area and dirty. The staff at the YHA very nice helpful. I have stayed here before and will again. Good price for Sydney.

It is not recommended to take the room (staying for 2 persons) with attached bathroom because it is expensive. We have booked the hostel and arrived earlier and hoping to keep the 2 luggage with them. However the luggage cannot be kept at the reception and you need to pay to keep the luggage with them. The room (staying 2 person) with attached bathroom is not cheap and with this price, they should provide complimentary service to allow guests to keep luggage at the reception counters. Better not to stay in room with private bathroom at this hostel. However it is recommended to stay here with sharing room and bathroom. Because price is reasonable with strategic location.

Stay at YHA hostel
We needed a place to crash for the night after arriving at Central from Broken Hill. YHA hostel was fine for our needs and so close to the station.........only 200m walk. Good place to stay but it's not luxurious but OK for the cost.

My stay at the YHA in Pitt st/Rawson place
I was traveling home to the Hunter valley from a stay in Adelaide, and wanted to break up the journey before catching a train home. It was perfect for my needs. I certainly will stay there again. The staff are friendly and so were the other guests I spoke to. Thank you Johanne Milsom.
