|The book exchange in Sydney Harbour YHA|
First is the location.
It's located in The Rocks area! Well, my friend said that The Rocks area is an expensive and popular area! Yep, I guess she's right. I could find many star hotels in the area, but there's a YHA here! :) Not only that, as we walked to the Sydney Harbour; we found many bars, cafes, and shops, even during weekend we found a market in The Rocks with plenty of food and other shops!

And then, what intrigued me and my friend to stay here was because the location is so unique. It is built above an archaeological site of The Rocks. It's above, NOT on the archaeological. That's why, we still could see the site from inside of the hostel. Even they provide the information of the site.

Second is the view.
The view? Sydney Harbour YHA has a rooftop, and from the rooftop we can see wonderful view, can you guess what is it? Haha ... Can you believe that with a budget price we can get this view? ;)

I've stayed in hostel twice, so this was my third stay in a hostel. And I can definitely say that this Sydney Harbour YHA is WOW and nicer!

Usually people who stayed in a long period, they prefer to cook instead of dining out. That's why, Sydney Harbour YHA provides a very big cooking and dining area next to the common room. There are 6 big cooking stations, with a big place to store the groceries, plus big fridge. We did cook for the breakfast, although it's only instant noodle! Haha ...
