If you want to experience Sydney, YHA is the place to start your experience. Walking distance to everything Sydney! Wake up to a beautiful dawn or sunrise or after a day out relax and watch the city glow as the sun sets. Meet interesting people and the local authentic Aussie staff are very helpful & hospitable. You don’t even need to be a tourist to enjoy YHA The Rocks. It’s location, atmosphere and affordable accommodation sets this place apart from other local competitors. Have fun!

A lovely hostel. Great location, close to the city centre, yet also away from the hustle and bustle, plus overlooking the opera house. Friendly helpful staff; lovely private rooms with really nice bathrooms. By far the best of the Sydney YHAs. And a wonderful easy-going place to stay in the Year of Covid.

Lovely hostel and definitely worth the money. Unfortunately it was really quiet but I think because of coronavirus and wintertime

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

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 give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

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

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as major 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.
