I've never stayed at a hostel before, so I have to preface this review by saying I have nothing to compare it to. The property is very convenient to Central Station (which is why I booked it). I booked a double ensuite room. It was quiet and clean, but incredibly bare bones - which I guess is what YHAs are... More

We arrived at the YHA earlier than our check in time hoping to be able to leave our bags to enable us to wander round Sydney until we could check in. Thankfully we were offered the option to check in early at this time with a free room upgrade to a twin room with private bathroom too - just what... More

I had a room with two single beds and a bathroom. Slightly expensive but the location was great. It is next to the central station, Murrays bus terminal and Paddy's market. It also has an awesome restaurant at the bottom. It has free wifi on two floors and facilities such as a shared kitchen and a movie lounge. It is... More

Travelled in small group of college students. This hostel is very basic and was somewhat clean. Good price but would not stay again. All amenities very average. Location was decent. Right by Central Station but not close to many of the attractions.

Stayed here in a female four-share for 6 nights. Left with an overall pleasant impression. Kitchen is spacious and clean, comfy and cozy dining area. A great idea was to make a separate kitchen block which is open 24 h. Usually kitchens in YHA close by 10:30. One little "but": there's a lack of usable pans. Most of them are... More

This was a good hostel. It is centrally located in the city, so very convenient. Only a few minutes walk from the Central Station. The rooms were spacious, the shared bathroom was pretty spacious as well, and clean. The staff was friendly as well. As it is a very popular hostel, there were a lot of people going in and... More

We only stayed here one night and we were fairly pleased with what we got. The rooms are clean and spacious, the bathrooms are also clean with hot showers, and the common room area is very big. Another thing we were happy was how the staff on reception were very helpful in getting us into another room when we turned... More

We stayed there for 4 nights in a privet room as our tour company picked up there. The rooms were large but basic and didn't have much more than a bed. Staff were friendly and efficient. I think because of the size of the Hostel most people stuck to their own groups and it was hard to meet new people.... More

I recently stayed at Sydney Central YHA with a friend for 5 nights. The hostel was very well located next to central station; it literally took me 40 minutes to get off the plane and into my room! We stayed in a six bed dorm which was adequately sized and clean. However our door keys regularly stopped working meaning we... More
