I am a 25 yr old lad. I have booked flights for the 28th December so I will be in Sydney on the 30th. I am travelling alone. So I need to be finding a social group to make my experience more enjoyable
Could anyone recommend any hostels that are in the vicinity of all the attractions or make access easy and especially Bondi Beach? I have heard bondi has a couple of hostels?
Also any info where to book,web sites etc?
NYE in Sydney is extremely popular. Most popular hostels are booked solid half a year in advance. To still find something right now, you don't really have much choice: You'll either pay outrageous fees, have to commit to staying a minimum of 7-10 days, or most likely both.
Looking here at travellerspoint (which combines the options of hostelworld and hostelbookers), searching for 7 nights starting on the 30th, there's exactly two options left (and three more if I search for 10 nights), with the 7 night hostels charging $200-$300 per night over new years (for a large dorm), and only one of the 10 night hostels going under $100.

Thanks for that Sander...
Very expensive then? Cant you only pay for a bed?
How about is it sofa surfers? would you recommend this?
