5 minute walk from Central Station (seriously - I can see the station from the window of my room), and the CBD, helpful, friendly staff, comfortable room and beds with fridge, fans, table, wardrobe, and bedside table. Clean hotel ensuite-style private bathrooms with strong hot water. Shampoo and soap supplied. Towels in room at no extra charge. Free bag storage... More

My family stayed at Sydney Central Inn (3nights) in late Nov 2015. They love the central location, facilities of the venue & their friendly staff. Personally I have experienced the MOST helpful staff ever (and I wasnt even staying there). I have travel document delivered to SCI from Victoria but there was unexpected major delay (Aust Post) causig some panic... More

Nice hostel really close to the cbd, clean, small and comfy. the wifi isn't really good but the staff is very kind. There are not so many bathrooms and sometimes you have to struggle but that's ok. Laundry very cheap. Recommended

We stayed in a triple room so can't speak for the shared dorms but the room was cosy and had everything we needed including TV with sports channels. Staff were really nice and kept asking if we had enough blankets as it was pretty cold. Location is very central and perfect if you like Thai, Chinese or Japanese food.

only stayed here for one night. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. It was sufficient enough accomodation for a group of us who were more preoccupied in exploring, because we only wanted a place to sleep. I wouldn't stay here if you are a germ-o-phobe. The little kitchenette is minimal and risk of catching something within the mess... More

Hotel is totally noisy as there seems to be a club near by and you will hear music / sounds until 2 am. Apart from that, all over the night with street noise of traffic. The windows doesn't shut properly and so I was left with cold all over the night. No lift available. Bathroom not that clean. Wifi is... More

Even before we arrived, the manager of the hostel have answered our inquiry an has been very accommodating to us. This is actually our 1st time to stay in a backpacker hostel and it was a nice experience. The location is also great and a lot of nearby tourist attractions. Near the MRT also.

I stayed at Sydney Central Inn for 15 weeks. I worked very close (about 25 seconds away) to the hostel and, for the most part, slept very well. Everything you need is on your door-step - Coles supermarket, nightclubs, pubs, shops and central station. It only takes 9 minutes from there to get to the airport by train. One disadvantage,...

This places does not have 24 hour desk service. My key was not working numerous times during off hours and it completely ruined my plans. I had to wait around for the front desk to open at 9 am to get it fixed. BIG MISTAKE! DO NOT COME HERE! Not worth the hassle. Also, why isn't there hand soap in... More
