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!

Sydney's most laid back backpacker hostel, Railway Square YHA adjoins Central Station and offers railway carriage rooms in the heart of Sydney.
Stay in one of the funky railway carriages on the former Platform Zero or one of the comfy rooms in the historic 1904 main building, now converted into contemporary accommodation. Hostel features a spa pool, Internet/WiFi, 24-hour access, tour desk, indoor and outdoor communal areas, self-catering kitchen. Walking distance to the best pubs in Sydney, Chinatown and Darling Harbour.
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.

Check out multipass tickets for local transport - we bought a day pass for 22.00 but if staying longer a weekly pass may be a good idea even if you do not use the whole week - do the maths!
