If you can find any place that still has anything, I'd say take it.... it's mostly sold out by this time of year! What kind of places are you looking at? Hostels or hotels or otherwise?

Uhm yep... not all hostels will have this, but a ton of the better ones can do this and still easily fill their beds 10 times over. I was talking to the owners of Wake Up a few months ago and they were already sold out for the entire period and getting dozens of emails a day for more bookings.... so the more popular hostels basically only sell full weeks around that period that include the Christmas days and new year. Bit of a bummer naturally for those that aren't planning to be in town for Christmas, but they can get away with it and still fill up

This will depend on the property though; some might not have this as a condition, but might in turn have higher rates. Have you thought about a hotel? There's more available and considering a hostel will probably be 30 bucks a head a night, it might work out okay if you aren't travelling alone...
