Hi,
I'm planning to travel to Australia in Sept, can anyone give me some help with cheap accommodation tips in Sydney and than at my next stop Brisbane! Any help would be much apreciated, thanks!

The "Palace Backpackers" in Brissy is always popular. It's above "The Down-Under Bar" which is frequented by both backpackers and uni students :) Not sure if it's the cheapest, but it's definately the most central so you'd save $ on transport around town.

The "Tin Billy" is also in Brisbane's city, but it's a bit more on the outskirts so that means a touch more walking. It's newer so the facilities would probably be better, but their bar downstairs is not as happening as the "Down Under Bar".

I've heard good reports on both of these places! These are just some observations from my many many walks around town every week!
