YHA Sydney has celebrated a brace of wins at the recent Australian Tourism Awards.

The Youth Hostel Association of Australia has scored a hat-trick after its Sydney Central hostel was named as Australia’s Best Backpacker Accommodation for a third year in a row at the Australian Tourism Awards.

Facilities on offer to gap year students and adventurous travellers alike include an in-house cinema, a heated pool and a sauna, while the centre also boasts panoramic views of the city.

The hostel is conveniently located opposite Central Station, and famous Sydney attractions including Darling Harbour and Chinatown are just a short walk away.

Prices at Sydney Central start at $32 (£20) per person per night, based on dormitory accommodation, or $106 per night for an en-suite double room.

Other youth hostel winners in the Australian Tourism Awards include Sydney Harbour YHA, which won the title of Australia’s Best New Tourism Development. Prices at this hostel start at $39 per person per night.

Cricket fans will be flocking to Sydney later this year, when Australia’s inaugural Twenty20 cricket season gets underway.
