Hi everyone! I'm flying out from Sydney to Melbourne on Christmas eve so it's likely I will be in Sydney for a little while before. I'm travelling on my own so would be great to meet up with some of you when I eventually get there - by the looks of it you'll all be working but I hope you can all make time for drinks :)

I arrive in Sydney 17th November! (Quite a while away but close enough to get a bit nervous haha!) i be staying at Base hostel if anyone's around then! Also does anyone know of any cheap hostels other than base? Also heard I should book my hostels well in advance because of how busy it gets around November/December? Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you, Tiffany😁😁

A week or two in advance should be plenty for anytime right up till xmas. It's only NYE itself (and, due to minimum stay policies, a couple of days before and after) which is totally out of control, and for which you should be booking within the next few weeks at the very latest if you want to get somewhere halfway decent for an acceptable price, though booking a month or two ago would've been far preferable. (Seriously! I just did a search here on travellerspoint for a random 7-night period around NYE, and the best right now seemed to be big dorms at Base with a rate 3 (?) times their usual (only AUD $80/night - for a dorm! - and that's by far the most attractive offer!)

I'm 26 from the US and I'll arrive in Sydney late October. Starting in November I'll be looking for work for a few months so I can save up to travel up the east coast! Booked my one way flight and really don't have any plans other than the above... hoping everything falls into place and I can meet some cool people who want to do something similar !
