Ive been searching hostel websites for places to stay from 30 Dec until 4 Jan - we are looking for a double/twin room BUT everywhere seems to be booked already! So l have found Sydney Beachhouse YHA - Manley area. Is this decent - pictures look really good, but is it far out or are there easy transportation links into city esp on NYE. So far its the only one l can get and it is a decent price for £183 for both of us.

HELP - l need to book this soon or we will be homeless in Sydney over New Year!

I think you mean Collaroy not Manly. Its a couple of suburbs North of Manly. Transports ok, but you are on the opposite side of the harbour from where all the action is. getting back could be a problem late at night. Buses will probably run all night; cabs will be a nightmare to catch.

Have you tried Manly Boardriders? Nomads? www.nomadsworld.com try the Maze hostel in the city.

Although Sydney books out well in advance for Christmas, New Years, this seems very early to be booked out!! It could also be that properties haven't yet uploaded their availability for this time of year onto booking websites (the one used on TP is the one that powers about 95% of all hostel bookings online). Also, if you're looking at a double room, you might want to consider a budget hotel or a regular hotel. Double rooms are rare in hostels so they will sell out quickly, whereas double rooms in hotels are much more common so there are a lot more available. I usually find when booking a double that you can get a similar price in a budget hotel (or even in a regular hotel) as you could in a hostel! There's tons of Sydney hotels listed in the hotel booking engine (link on the left hand side of the page) we use, mainly because they are based in Sydney and have a large team working there....

I'm sure you'll find something!! :)

ps. Manly offers okay transportation into the city, but if possible, I'd go for something that you don't have to cross water for to be in the heart of things....
