Diklab83 has indicated that this thread is about Australia


I'm leaving for Oz with my sis tmorrow (can't bloody believe it...) and am due to land in Sydney on Sat. oct 23rd. Thing is, we plan to stay in Sydney a week before heading up North to Cairns and travelling along the coast and we havent booked anywhere to stay in Sydney.
I was wondering if anyone could reccomend some hostels that are CHEAP as we really arent fussy about where we stay as long as its clean. We want to stay in the Eastern suburbs area (used to live in Bondi so its what i know), preferrably in Bondi but Coogee, Randwick, Maroubra (dont know if there area many hostels in these other suburbs?) and that whole are would do as well so long as its cheap and doesnt have cockroaches or something (i have a traumatic memory of hearing on TV of a backpacjer in Australia who had a cockroach crawl into his ear and got stuck way in deep and had to get it surgically removed!!! it makes my skin crawl just thinking about it..)
anyway, any help is much appreciated,

Hi Dikla,

Try this for accommodation…. It’ll cost you 27 AUD a night…

Have a ball…. ‘ wish I was there!

Hope there’s no cockroaches!

Here’s another hostel for 21.50 AUD per night each…. Bondi Backpackers

In the heart of Sidney you can get a hostel for as little as 13/14 AUD per night! I expect the cockroaches are all inclusive here!

[ Edit: Added hostel ]
