Hi Roseli - really glad you enjoyed your stay. Our hostel is a little different with our train carriage theming - people can choose those rooms specifically when booking on our website. Hope to see you again on your next visit to Sydney.

Definitely the best hostel I’ve stayed at in Sydney. It is clean and really nice and modern. The rooms aren’t cramped and the kitchen area is spacious. Could’ve stayed here for several nights happily.

Another excellent YHA, just beside Central station. I love my ensuite female dorm, equipped with electrical socket, reading light and locker. Kitchen got all utensil u need. And eventhough they have event everynight, it was fun and not noisy.

Hi William - our sister hostel, Sydney Central YHA, which is about 300 metres has some limited paid car park spots. Otherwise there are parking stations near by but they obviously charge.

Yes. As long as you did not pre-pay for your room, all YHAs and HIs will give you the member rate if you buy a membership at time of check-in/payment.
