YHA hostels in Australia are pretty nice and clean. This one is not an exception. Many people think that there is only 1 YHA in Sydney city which is YHA Central and overlook this lovely Railway Square YHA, what a pity, as the dorm rooms here are cheaper than Central, which is just a few minutes away! Also, this hostel is quite new and well maintained (its previous use was a railway station). If you're willing to pay AUD6 more, you can even share a cabin with others! Its kitchen is huge and clean too.

Unique Qualities: ...yet to be improved

It'd be more backpacker-friendly if free luggage storage rooms could be provided.
