    I've stayed only one night at this YHA. My experience was great. The location is very central and offers many options to eat, etc. They have multiple showers and bathrooms, plugs for each bed and they do breakfast and meals.

    Hi William - our sister hostel, Sydney Central YHA, which is about 300 metres has some limited paid car park spots. Otherwise there are parking stations near by but they obviously charge.
