Sydney’s most laid back hostel, Railway Square YHA, adjoins Central Station and is within minutes to the best pubs and restaurants in Sydney, Chinatown and Darling Harbour. Here are the top 4 items we love about Railway Square YHA here in Sydney!
1.) International Youths
I met a lot of international people. The receptionists are French and German. The breakfast server is Bulgarian. The hostel’s janitor is Chinese. In the chill-out area, I met Spanish, Colombian, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Arab and German friends!
2.) Scenic Chill Out Area
Who thought that only 5-star hotels should have this ambience? I stayed here for a couple of hours. I took a selfie of that Big Ben tower look-alike. I recorded here my birthday greetings to my mom.
3.) Very Nice Wall Art Installation
I had some self pity this morning after realizing that Sydney is very expensive for me; that a 10 AUD burger would make me cry. I got a positive uplift of this YHA wall art installation near my room. What you feel depends on how you think. I feel good today!
4.) Train Cabin-like Rooms
Spend a once-in-a-lifetime night in a funky railway carriage on Platform Zero of Central Station or in one of the comfy rooms in the historic main building. It normally gets fully booked thus I suggest you book in advance! This backpacker hostel features a free Wi-Fi hotspot (Wi-Fi Plus also available), 24-hour access, tour desk, indoor and outdoor communal areas and self-catering kitchen.
