Hostelworld says

Sydney Central YHA was voted the best in Australia and the second-best in Oceania in 2009, and this clean, spacious hostel continues to receive high ratings, especially for its location. It’s set next to the buses and trains at Central Station and is a short walk from Paddy’s Market and Chinatown. Hostelworld reviewers tell us that ‘this is a fantastic place buzzing with international travellers, things to do and ways to meet other people’. We particularly like their two big kitchens, ensuring that there’s still enough space for everyone to cook in this large hostel.

Property Description

Play and stay in Sydney Central YHA! In a spectacular heritage listed building located directly opposite Central Station in the heart of the backpacker precinct.

This is backpacker accommodation at its finest, boasting a rooftop pool, sauna, and sunny outdoor area with panoramic views of the city. Now with free, fast Wi-Fi all throughout the property!

The new Sydney light rail line stops right across the hostel and the train station is 100 metres away, making it very easy for guests to travel through the city to the Harbour and much further away.

Good location and very clean. Worked out very well for a quick stop over in Sydney. I much preferred the dorms to the Wake Up Sydney just down the road.
