"Premium location at a mid-range price…"
It might seem counter-intuitive to look at a hostel when you need a hotel, but the Sydney Harbour Rocks YHA is much more than a hostel.
The double/twin rooms and 4 or 5 bed rooms
are ensuite so it's like staying at a hotel. You also get the benefit of kitchen facilities so you can self-cater some meals to save some extra money.
However, the Rocks YHA really comes into its own when you consider the location - you're staying just a few minutes walk away from Sydney's famous harbour for a fraction of the price of the surrounding 5 star hotels.
The best thing about this accommodation is the roof deck, which has sun loungers and a beautiful view of Sydney's famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge. One of the highlights of our holiday was attending their extremely reasonably priced rooftop event on New Year's Eve, meaning we got fabulous views of 2 spectacular fireworks displays.
There are other useful features at this property, including tourist information, a free book exchange and a glass floor to the foundations to show the archaeological finds uncovered during the building's construction.
