Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Where to stay on arrival in Sydney

I arrive in sydney on the 2nd Feb in the early evening and I have booked up to go on oz-intro on the 5th of Feb. I was wondering if anyone knew of a cheap hotel in coogee or central sydney so I can catch up on some sleep before I move into the Surfside backpackers with oz-intro.

Thanks

Dont know about coogee area but i stayed in Harbour City Backpackers, which was great near the city and kings cross area and not expensive.

Hi there

I am booked in to Wake Up Sydney - looks like a nice place and is in Central Sydney.

Cheers Laura

Thanks for that.

Does anyone know if the wake up hostel, does private rooms ? Me and my mate are not really wanting to go into dorms when we first arrive.

Guys you should hit the dorms straight away if its your first time, great way to get to know whats happening around town and you will make some brand new mates who you will keep in touch all thru your trip. If you have done the backpacker thing before, then fair enough!

Take it easy
