Reviews (17067 guests have reviewed this hostel)
We really enjoyed our stay. Great spot in the CBD, the staff are super friendly and really helpful and I thought the price was reasonable. I have never stayed in a YHA before and we had our kids with us (11, 9 & 7) but I will definitely stay again in the future. My only tiny complaint is that our kids got really sore eyes after using the pool. But otherwise our stay was great and I would definitely recommend.

I have always enjoyed my overnight experience at YHA Central. This is my first stay in over 12 months and with all the changes the hostel is even better. Very relaxing, clean, friendly and efficient. Good restaurant. Thank you.

YHA hostels are always a guarantee, and the Sydney Central is probably among the best I've stayed at. Great location, clean, tidy, friendly staff, will definitely revisit if I need accommodation in the city again.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as major hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
