          Hi, I'm a grandmother traveling with my 18 and 19 year old grandchildren; is there an age requirement. Of course I'd book a private room.

          Hi Sally There are no age limits at any Australian YHA hostels. Only requirement is that children under 18 can't be accommodated in dorm rooms - private accommodation needs to be booked. Enjoy your visit.

          Is it possible to rent baggage storage space if we are not staying there? We are at an airbnb now but need to check out tomorrow at 11am while our flight is only later in the evening. So we just need storage space from 11am till 4 or 5pm. Thanks!

          Hi, just confirming that Sydney Central YHA doesn't have bag storage for non-guests, however there is indeed a coach terminal on the external ground floor of central station that offers baggage storage for anyone to use.

          Hi - there are three lifts in the building going to all floors. The bathrooms are in the centre of the building, with the rooms around, so no room is far from one!
