More about Sydney Central YHA

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. The hostel has panoramic rooftop views, free activities, a basement bar, heated pool, cinema and free, fast Wi-Fi all throughout the property. 

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

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.
