Located on the city fringe opposite Hyde Park. Easy walking distance to city centre, Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Base Backpackers Sydney is the most centrally located Sydney backpacker accommodation according to the Lonely Planet. We are a two minute walk from the famous Darling Harbour, home to Sydney's best cafes & bars, China Town and the Sydney Entertainment Centre are just around the corner. Transport to Kings Cross, Bondi Beach, the SCG, All Phones Arena and ANZ Stadium is across the street at Town Hall Station, and the historic Rocks precinct, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House are quite near.
The staff was very welcoming and available. On the other hand, the "hosts" were not smiling or sociable, which is strange for young people traveling and traveling the world. The room was very very average, the bathroom dirty and wet. I did not appreciate this experience at all and I fear the next one in Prague this summer.
Location was good
The location is fantastic, 5 minutes from Darling Harbour. I stayed in a double room, the bed was extremely comfortable, plus the shower facilities I was sharing with one other room were good. The free shampoos and conditioners are also a nice touch, however I'm not sure if you get this luxury if your staying in a dorm.
It was close to everything.
Big Hostel is big enough to meet people and enjoy the spaces but also small enough to know your name.
A comfortable and warm environment located in the trendy Surry Hills precinct next to Central Station downtown and close to Chinatown, Darling Harbour, and Oxford street.
Sydney Central YHA is in the heart of the city centre and close to all the action! Opposite Sydney’s Central Station, in the hub of the backpacker precinct, this hostel offers backpackers accommodation at its finest quality.
Perfect location near many restaurants, railway station, main centers of interest of the city. Home 24 / 24h, change of linen service during the stay, private family room very quiet.
It was one of the only places that catered for a family of 5. The location was really good for getting to the airport for an early start. Breakfast was included which was a bonus as we hadn't realised it was.
Great location and good value for the money. The place was acceptably clean and the breakfast was what is expected from a hostel.
Location, cleanliness, quiet, breakfast available.
Big hostel was an all around great stay. The facilities are cool, SUPER secure, and they are kept pretty darn clean. The free breakfast in the morning is wonderful and the common room is an easy place to meet people. The staff at the front desk was really, really helpful!
Was only there for one night, so i can't really say much but i did like what i saw! Super spacious rooms with comfy beds! :)
Facilities were clean as well! What more could you ask for in a hostel? the perfect place to stay for a couple of nights!
The free wifi was very good and the location next to the central station is helpful too, it's not directly in the city centre, but if you stay in Sydney for a bit longer than two days it definitely worth it because you can easily catch trains and buses to any other direction
The staff was very welcoming and helpful. They offered lots of activities like pool, an arcade and a movie theater. The dining area was very nice and had booth tables.
We’re located opposite Central Station which is also the first shuttle bus stop from the airport. We’re within walking distance of some of Sydney's main attractions; a few minutes from Chinatown, a 15-minute stroll from Darling Harbour and Sydney Aquarium, 20 minutes from Sydney Sky Tower and a 30-minute walk from the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay. Talk about convenience!
Basically everything!! It was the best hostel I've stayed in for a very long time!!
The cafe downstairs was nice and reasonably priced. The downstairs bar was also fun.
Clean and always something available to do and the staff are always available if you need them
If you are traveling by yourself and want to meet people it is great,
