What is the best Sydney hostel where it is easiest to meet peope? I've heard YHA are a bit impersonal or something, can anyone advise me? I would be travelling by myself.

It's hard to pinpoint what makes a 'best' hostel, but i can recommend one that i've stayed and quite enjoyed it.
Harbour city hostel - i think it has been mentioned on lonely planet..
It could get busy though, so best to book early. They have activity nights every night, so great way to meet people, and free drinks at the local club on Fridays. Also walking distance to Harbour bridge/Opera house.
But its not the cleanest of hostels i have to admit. Try it anyway!

check out the reviews on a site like, they always help me make my decisions of which hostels to book, and usually mention the friendly-factor of the place :)
