Railway Square YHA Hostel Reviews


Winner of Australia National Tourism Award - Best Backpacker Accommodation 2014

This unique YHA is in the heart of Sydney's backpacker district around Central Railway Station. For something different, stay in one of the funky railway carriages on the former Platform Zero. Or try one of the comfy rooms in the converted historic main building.

Sydney's grooviest hostel, Railway Square YHA includes a great lounge and cafe, pool and deck area, travel desk, pool table and super fast internet facilities. Regular hostel activities including BBQs, and great value sports games.

Walk to most of Sydney's major attractions, or shop till you drop and go bar hopping in the city and nearby trendy Surry Hills. Explore Chinatown for great food and Paddy's Markets.

Please note that our pool is currently under renovation and might be out of action.
