YHA Australia is a non-profit organization providing affordable hostel accommodation in the country. While YHA stands for 'Youth Hostels Association', the chain is happy to accommodate travelers of any age.
They are famous for re-purposing quirky establishments, like the 19th-century former prison's women's wing, a gentleman's club, or in this case, a heritage building of a railway station.
A unique feature of the hostel that involves heritage parts is the Green Wall, a vertical garden with old railway luggage racks for the plants.
As Railway Square YHA is located at the Central Railway Station, excellent transportation is a given, but it's also close to Sydney's most prominent sights like Darling Harbour, Chinatown, Sydney Harbour, and the Sydney Opera House.
The Railway Square hostel is currently under renovation and is due for completion in 2025/26.
