Sydney Central YHA is in a convenient location, close to shops, transport and attractions. The kitchen facilities are great and were always tidy. The pool and sauna area on the roof is really nice. Staff are friendly and helpful.

I've stayed here on many occasions and always have a great stay. The hostel is well located, has amazing facilities (rooftop pool, sauna, balcony), and activities (movies, city walking tours, pub crawl). Highly recommended.
