Welcome to our hostel

Hostel facilities include a spa pool, Internet cafe, 24-hour access, tour desk, indoor and outdoor communal areas and a self-catering kitchen. This fun Sydney hostel also has an activities and entertainment program. In a convenient location, guests can walk to nearby pubs, Chinatown and Darling Harbour.

I really loved to stay at the railway! The people and especially the staff has been so friendly! I really enjoyed the activities the hostel offered, for example going to a rugby game as a big group, quiz night or just playing pool!
