Anyone got any recommendations on hostels, reasonably priced? Not sure where to book

Wake up!

Wake Up! is certainly popular, but to call it "reasonably" priced is a bit of a stretch. Most Sydney hostels tend to be expensive, but the huge ones right at central station are really quite pricey even beyond that. (You really pay for the convenient location. there.)
Travellerspoint doesn't even list Wake Up! in the budget section, I see, but instead in Mid-Range! (I suspect that isn't a conscious decision, but something which happens automatically based on average price ranges.)

Nick: Take a look at the above linked accommodation pages here on travellerspoint. It's a combination of hostels (and hotels, guesthouses, appartments, etc) from a number of large booking providers like hostelworld e.a., with reviews by fellow travellerspoint members. Should have something which'll appeal to you in there. (My personal favorite has always been the Glebe Point YHA, as I absolutely love that neighbourhood (it's a bit out of the way, but still convenient enough for my tastes, and it's small enough that you can actually hope to get to know some other people staying there). Was a bit run-down last time I came through, but I'd suspect that'll have cleaned up very well by now, given that it's a YHA (and current reviews at the YHA site are extremely positive).

Hi Nick,

Gonna be flying from Sydney to Melbourne on xmas eve so it's likely I will be in Sydney for a little while before that (sorry for being vague all I've done is book flights and the Oz Experience bus!) but would be good to meet up for beers at some point!
