Review of Sydney’s Unique Train Carriage Hostel for Backpackers

Next Stop: Sydney Railway Square Hostel

Location: Sydney Railway Square YHA, 8/10 Lee Street, Central, Sydney

Ever slept in a hostel in your own city? This place is just like an old fashioned station, with old train carriages that have been refurnished into rooms.


We heard about this place, probably over a year ago. Known as the “Top 10 coolest Hostels in the World”, we knew we would check have to check it out considering it’s right on our door step. So for my birthday, my travel partner in crime, Chris surprised me with a night on the town.

This hostel is located 2 minutes away from Surry Hills, we decided to check out some hidden bars for happy hour before coming back to the hostel for their Free Wine & Cheese night.

This hostel has something new every night and I was super impressed they had a night where everyone went down to Frankies Pizza to check out the local music. Love Frankiessss!
