Sydney Central YHA

Sydney Central YHA is in the heart of the city centre and close to all the action! This heritage-listed Sydney backpackers hostel is opposite Sydney’s Central Station, in the hub of the backpacker precinct, and offers backpackers accommodation at its finest quality. 

This 5 star rated Sydney hostel has panoramic rooftop views, free activities, a basement bar, heated pool, sauna, cinema, free Wi-Fi hotspot, travel agency and so much more! This hostel has best facilities among all Sydney hostels.

Sydney Central YHA is a three-time winner (and Hall of Fame) in the Australian Tourism Awards and is housed in a heritage-listed building.

It's the best backpackers hostel that never closes with 24-hour security access. Group accommodation and disabled access is also available.

Family Rooms: To book a family room rate there must be at least one child under 18 and 1-2 adults; otherwise this special room rate will be adjusted to the usual adult prices with the difference payable on arrival.


A new lightrail line is currently being built in Sydney, and will make it very easy for guests to travel through the city to the Harbour when completed. As part of the project, there is work underway on the streets around Sydney Central YHA and there may be some nearby disruption.
