A nice location with a professional staff, I usually do not write negative reviews but this time deserves it, if you're allergic to dust this is not the place to be, I've got two clean blankets upon arrival, but the heave blanket on the bed smelled so bad, there was rubbish under the bed, windows locked so not a brise...

Hi Jaime We're sorry you weren't happy with your stay with us - we want guests to have the best time at Sydney Central YHA so feedback is really important. We've checked with housekeeping and the doona on your bed had actually had its cover changed, and then you also received two freshly laundered sheets to use on the bed...

Really cool experience, met some awesome people and felt like i was back in Uni. Best part about this YHA is the location. Perfect place to access all of Sydney's city hotspots and close to the train station

It is very big and well organized like a hotel. The 4 bed bedroom is big, clean and confy. The commom areas are great. Free Wi-Fi good enough. A great Cafe at the front door but a bit pricy. Next to Central station and close to so many spots.

Wifi is free and good on first and second floors! After being sent on a goose chase to find parking the guys at the front felt bad and gave me breakfast vouchers at the cafe connected to the hostel which was awesome!! The beds were decent enough... showers were ok. It seemed like more of a hotel than a hostel....

This hostel is like a hotel, it's gorgeous. 8 stories, big bedrooms with huge windows and lovey views, the AC is perfect so you're never too hot or too cold and the communal bathrooms are great, clean and not crowded.

Good Location next to Central Station and near to the main street with shops etc. We had a 4 bedroom. Size was okay, big lockers. Very noisy room when you are having a room to the main street. Not very clean, some fries were laying on the floor at arrival. Bathrooms have been disgusting. Especially the toilets have been dirty/full...

Hi Max and thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you thought the hostel wasn't clean enough. Our bathrooms are cleaned 3 times per day and due to recent feedback, we are actually going to increase this to 4 times per day. I hope you enjoyed your time in Sydney!

Great location - next to the Central Railway Station, close to Chinatown & Thai Town, short walk to Darling Harbour, restaurants, convenience stores, and the busy through fare of Sydney - George Street.

We booked an ensuite room which was clean and tidy, the bed was comfortable. The proximity to the central railway station is great as well as the nearby streets of Pitt and George streets We stayed 2 nights. Basic but good for a short stay, friendly and helpful staff. A nice cafe on the ground floor.
