One Sydney hostel is combining all the excitement and mystery of taking an overnight train journey with convenience of, you know, not actually having to go anywhere.

The Sydney Railway Square YHA, a youth backpacker hostel adjoining Sydney’s Central Station, allows travellers to bed down in unique accommodation – converted railway carriage rooms relocated to the station’s former Platform Zero.

Not your thing? From $32 per night, you can also choose from dorms, twin rooms and suites in the station’s old main building, built in 1904.


Of course, along with historical digs, the Railway Square YHA includes the most modern of amenities: an outdoor pool, snappily-decorated indoor and outdoor communal areas for lounging and meeting fellow travellers, a kitchen and a cafe. All aboard!
