Don't be too nervous, i was like that. There's lots to do & i'll meet up with you when you arrive if you want & show u around (the places i know lol).
The hotel was amazing, did not want to check out!! I'm having trouble finding work, so contemplating just doing a trip somewhere instead..

Hey all,

I've just finished creating a new feature for Travellerspoint allowing people to groups - one of the imagined uses is for people travelling to the same destination to be able to find each other and connect more easily.

Since it's brand new, the Australia in 2014 group needs some members. You're hereby invited to join :)

When I was working in Sydney in 2010 I lived in a shared flat in Neutral Bay. However with about three months before my visa expired the landlord decided he was going to renovate the four flats he owned and I had to move out. I was left trying to find somewhere for two and half months which was quite tricky as it wasn’t long enough to get a flatshare but too long to spend living in a hostel.

Anyway the long and short of it is for my last two months I ended up staying in Ashfield Manor - a guesthouse in Ashfield (ten minutes from the Centre of Sydney on the train) which cost me $50 a week more than I was paying for my flat, but I got breakfast every morning, free tea and coffee, all the national newspapers and magazines were in the lounge every day and I didn’t have to pay any bills! I had my own room and that was cleaned and laundered every week as well. There were a few people staying there long term and I got to know them quite well so it was a good atmosphere. Might be worth checking out.
