This hostel was beyond my expectation. Excellent.


large hostel, rather impersonal but no complaints about the quality of facilities or location


The location next to central station can't be beat. Big common area. Large kitchen area. Decent wifi. Key card access. Good overall place. If it's warm enough you can even swim in their small pool.

Clean and organised however they were not so flexible with check in times so had to go away and return 4 hours later. Would be better if they offered a free luggage storage if they cant be ready at the prebooked time of arrival


location, location, location. Extremely clean and efficient. 24 hr reception. Great kitchen and hot spots for charging.


Not a big fan of big hostel, but this one did its job for me stay in Sydney.

Great location, great staff, really clean but needs more plugs in the room


Railway Square was a really nice place to stay, really clean and modern! However it could definitely do with more plugs/sockets in the rooms, perhaps one near each bed. The storage lockers were also expensive which was a pity
