Stay in the airport because otherwise you'll just be paying for an extra nights accommodation and you'll hardly get enough sleep to bother paying that extra cash.

I would say the same :) Ive had to stay in a few airports overnight and it's not too unpleasant an experience (depending on the airport).

You can always find a seat or two to stretch out on and as long as you have a warm jacket or your sleeping bag to keep you snuggly, you should be fine for a few hours until the sun comes up. ;)

I'd head to the hostel. If you wait until the morning there will be a heap of traffic on the freeway and will take a lot longer if you are in a Skybus or a taxi (also more expensive).

At least you will get a decent sleep at a hostel.

If you do choose to stay at the airport there are a few seats where you can stretch out, the best ones being in the arrivals hall or outside the doors for departures.
