    Great for Overnight stay if you need to catch an Interstate Train or Airport Train to T1 ot T2 in the morning VERY Close and easy to get to Platforms 1 or 19-22 at Central.

    Always my preferred stopover point in Sydney. Cheap, clean and relaxed.

    Good location and clean, I don't recommend the 8 bed dorms as they will be most likely full of people leaving on all hours of the morning making noise etc an generally nothing can be done about it.

    Great location, and the railway car dorms were super fun AND clean. We loved being able to return by train after a day trip and just walk home at the end of the station! Great place to stay in Sydney!

    Railway Square YHA hostel is within walking distance to most of Sydney's major attractions. Visit museums, get up close to stars, sharks or snakes at Darling Harbour's Madame Tussauds, Sea Life and Wild Life attractions. Saunter down to the historic Rocks district, climb the Harbour Bridge, visit the Sydney Opera House and Botanic Gardens, then enjoy a cruise by harbour ferry, catamaran or jet boat. Shop and cafe/bar hop in the trendy inner city suburb of Surry Hills, just behind Central Station.


    Be seen at nearby Scubar, underground backpacker bar. Mix with the locals at one of Haymarket, Darlinghurst or Surry Hills' bars. Hit Oxford Street, or stroll down to Chinatown to soak up the atmosphere of the night markets (Fridays in summer). Try tapas in the Spanish Quarter (Corner George and Liverpool Streets). Sip cocktails by the water at Cockle Bay.
