Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Sydney - where to stay

Hello all,

I'm looking to book my accomodation in Sydney over the Christmas and New Year period. I'm not sure whether I should be staying in the Central area or Kings Cross.

What are people's thoughts on these areas in terms of location etc?

I think that's booked up already, most places are. I have booked into Nomads Westend Backpackers, was the cheapest I found and still had rooms x

I stayed in Base Backpackers in central Sydney over Christmas and New Year - it's a pretty good hostel and the location is perfect. I booked in the July so you might still be able to get in.
